Winter Olympics 2022 Betting Picks

With so many different events set to happen, we’ll have plenty of opportunities to wager on the 2022 Winter Olympics. However, right now, we’ll look at a few of the best bets for contests that are happening within the next few days, or just an overall winner of a tournament. 

There are going to be many more than just three best bets, but here we’ll cover just three.

Stay tuned for more later this week here at CanadianSportsbooks.

Russian Olympic Committee vs. Switzerland (Men’s): Russian Olympic Committee (1.46)

Simply put: The Men’s Russian hockey team is going to be seemingly impossible to beat. For this Winter Olympics, there will be absolutely zero current NHL players present, so a lot of teams will be playing with amateurs and whatnot. However, Russia has a professional league of its own—the Kontinental Hockey League. 

The KHL is allowing players to participate, and, as the KHL is widely considered the second-best professional hockey league on the planet, they will have a unique advantage.

The Russian team is filled with former NHL players, too, such as Nikita Nesterov, Nikita Gusev, Mikhail Grigorenko, Anton Slepyshev, Sergei Plotnikov, Vadim Shipachyov, and Slava Voynov.

Expect the Men’s Russian team to roll with their first stop being Switzerland who is massive underdogs.

Slopestyle (2/6): Marc McMorris (4.17)

The Canadian-native, Marc McMorris will look to win the gold here in the Slopestyle contest and the odds are in his favour. Despite the 4.17 line, McMorris is the favourite, and with good reason.

In his Olympic career, McMorris has yet to get gold, but he did get bronze in both 2014 and 2018. Since then, though, he’s won the world championship in the Big Air event. 

Be prepared for McMorris to finally ascend and take home the top of the podium.

Winter Olympics 2022 Women’s Hockey Winner: Canada (1.59)

While the Men’s side of things may already be over before it starts, the Women’s side will seemingly come down to Canada or the United States. 

Ever since the 1990 World Championship, we’ve seen the Canadian and United States squads go back and forth, but the Women’s team has shown sheer and utter dominance so far in these games.

In two games, the Canadian Women’s team has won by a combined score of 23-2 and will not be slowing down. We’ve seen Sarah Nurse and Brianne Jenner both pickup hat tricks and Sarah Fillier, the 21-year-old, has scored multiple goals, too.

Look for the Canada United States to be in the finals again, but for Canada to pull out the win.
