Olympic Freestyle Skiing Betting Odds For PyeongChang 2018

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Ski Cross Odds

Most online sportsbooks have been quietly gearing up for the Winter Olympics, and while many events have yet to be put on the boards, the Men’s PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Ski Cross odds have been posted. At these betting shops, Switzerland’s Marc Bischofberger is the slight favorite to win. However, France’s Jean-Frederic Chapuis is right behind him, though several athletes are at the bottom of the betting boards at +15000 odds each, which actually makes this contest one of Olympic skiing’s closest from top to bottom.

The Winter Olympics odds for the Women’s Ski Cross event have slightly different national representation, as Sweden’s Sandra Naeslund is the huge favorite at -120. Behind her is Heidi Weng (who seems to be trending well in several Olympic skiing disciplines among the bookmakers. Five different skiers are at the bottom of the board with +30000 odds to win, so there will certainly be some movement on the back end regardless of how the 2018 Olympic favorites place up top.

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Moguls Odds

As the most physically violent sport on the slopes (at least aesthetically – ouch!), the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Moguls odds favor athletes with piston-like adaptability. For the Men, Canada’s Mikael Kingsbury is the heavy favorite to win, with Kazakh Dmitriy Reiherd and the rest of the field far back. On the Women’s side, American Jaelin Kauf is a slight favorite, with the top five in the field very close behind.

Men’s Moguls Olympic Medal Recap

Not many surprises here, either. Mikael Kingsbury of Canada went into the Men’s Moguls event as one of the heaviest individual favorites of these entire Olympic Games (-275 at Bovada, -286 at Bet365). Kingsbury easily won Gold, while Matt Graham – third on the boards at +1200 to win – took home the Silver. The only real outlier was Japan’s Daichi Hara, who bested countryman Sho Endo (a favorite to podium) by coming out of nowhere to win the Bronze.

Perrine Laffont of France won Olympic Gold in the Women’s Moguls, and at +350 on the betting boards, she was near the top as a favorite to do so. No surprise there. At +500 to win, Canada’s Justine Dufour-Lapointe won Silver, which is also unsurprising. The only real shocker in Women’s Moguls was that Yulia Galysheva of Kazakhstan earned a Bronze medal in the event, where she was not expected to do particularly well at all.

In a shocking upset, Men’s Ski Cross favorite Marc Bischofberger of Switzerland – who was atop most betting boards at +500 – finished with the Silver medal. However, that’s not the surprising bit, as he wasn’t a particularly heavy favorite. Instead, Canada’s Brady Leman taking the Gold – coming up from the depths of the betting boards and toting a huge payout – was completely unexpected.

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Slopestyle Odds

Americans ran away with the Winter Olympics’ first slopestyle events in the 2014 Games, and the trend may continue this year, at least on the Men’s side, where two US athletes are in the top 5 on the odds boards.

What Events Makeup Freestyle Skiing At the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic Games?

There are 10 Freestyle Skiing events associated with the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Games: Men’s and Women’s Moguls, Aerials, Ski Halfpipe, Ski Cross, and Ski Slopestyle. Each of these sports requires substantially different skillsets, and there are specific rules that govern each. That said, Freestyle skiing in general sees all its athletes performing aerial acrobatics while simultaneously gliding down the slope. Freestyle Skiing events are scored based on both speed and judged technique performances.

Freestyle Skiing Moguls

Moguls are naturally formed bumps caused by skiers piling snow while they ski. Moguls racing uses this concept in its course construction, but usually through artificial production, and the course ends up being cross-hatched with small mounds of snow (taking on the appearance of a puffy quilt). The Freestyle Skiing Moguls discipline comprises a 250m (273 yards) race that has two jump sections. There are two qualifying rounds that decide 20 finalists. After more qualifying, the field is narrowed down to 12, and then to 6. A group of 7 judges decides the scores for Mogul races, and their scoring is composed of 50% turning technique, 20% air maneuvers, and 20% speed.

Freestyle Skiing Aerials

Aerials are an event in which Freestyle skiers propel themselves off jumps to perform tricks. Each participant gets two jumps per round, and there are 3 rounds that narrow the field from 12 competitors to 4.In the Freestyle Skiing Aerials discipline, there are 5 judges who use a 10-point scale based on air performance, form, and landing.

Freestyle Ski Halfpipe

The Freestyle Ski Halfpipe is a skill-based competition in which the athletes glide down a halfpipe and perform various established tricks. Five judges grade the performances based on jump height, peak turn, overall technique, and degree of difficulty. Each competitor gets two runs to post their best score (on a 100 point scale), and there are two rounds: the qualifier and the final.

Freestyle Ski Cross

Freestyle Ski Cross groups together four individual athletes who then compete on a designed course with difficult obstacles like banks, rollers, spines, and jumps. It’s a straight up race, so whoever finishes first wins. 36 athletes enter the contest to begin, and after various seeding races and official heats, the final race is held between the best four highest scoring remaining skiers.

Freestyle Ski Slopestyle

Freestyle Ski Slopestyle is a race comprised of obstacles that are chosen by the athletes themselves, much in the manner that ice skaters pick their own routines. Five judges grade the performance on a scale up to 100 points. They look at the height, turn, technique, and difficulty. 24 men and 12 women advance to the finals, and each skier performs twice, with their highest score of the pair of runs being their final marks. The best overall score wins the Olympic Freestyle Ski Slopestyle Gold medal.

What Are The Rules For Olympic Freestyle Skiing?

The Freestyle Skiing events will all take place at the Bokwang Snow Park in PyeongChang, which will hold all 10 competitions (5 men’s races, and 5 women’s races). Each participant must wear all approved safety and performance equipment, but there is no specified length for skis. Though Moguls and Aerials racers typically employ different ski size preferences.

As far as the dimensions for the courses in Olympic Freestyle Skiing, they vary depending on the event. The Ski Halfpipe has an average tilt of 17 degrees, a recommended slope of 170m, a halfpipe width of 20m, and a height of 6.7m. For Ski Cross, the course includes a difference in elevation of 130m to 250m, a length of 1050m, an average tilt of 12 degrees, a slope width of 40m, and a track width of 6m to 16m. Slopestyle sees a difference in elevation of 150m, an average tilt of 12 degrees (minimum), a width of 30m (minimum), and at least three jumps. Finally, Moguls have an average tilt of 28 degrees, a difference in elevation of 110m, a length of 250m, and a minimum width of 18m.

Who Are The Favorites In Freestyle Skiing For The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games?

The US leads in total medals with 21. Canada is second with 18 and France is third with 12. This makes sense as these three countries dominated the individual medal count of the last winter Olympics in 2012. In men’s Slopestyle, three different USA athletes won gold, silver, and bronze. France did the same thing in the men’s Ski Cross. Canada controlled the women’s side as three of their athletes took home gold out of the five events.

Can American Players Legally Wager On The 2018 PyeongChang Freestyle Skiing Events?
