Olympic Ski Jumping Betting Odds For PyeongChang 2018

Bovada.lv is currently listing betting lines on the Olympics large hill ski jump teams competition, and – no surprise here – Norway, the originator of the sport, is coming out on top in advance of the start of PyeongChang 2018 with favorable odds to win it all. Poland is pretty close behind Norway on the betting board from this early vantage point, though Germany can’t be counted out of the running either. These three teams are historically some of the best in the business, so look for them to be vying for gold in the Olympics ski jumping contest. In the women’s normal hill competition, Maren Lundby continues Norway’s dominant streak on the Olympics ski jumping betting boards, considerably better than those of her nearest competitor, Germany’s Katharina Althaus, or Japan’s Sara Takanashi. The Japanese don’t have as much collective momentum in the normal hill ski Olympic ski jump event though, as proven by the unlucky Yuka Seto.

Participants can be expected to go for the gold medal by soaring off the end of the 120-meter ski jump, propelling themselves up to 250 meters through the air – and sometimes beyond that mark.

Men’s Olympic Large Hill Team Medal Results

Norway, ever a leader in this high-flying Winter Olympics sport the Scandinavian nation pioneered and perfected, claimed the gold medal over its rivals from Europe and Asia. The Silver medal was then up for grabs between longtime and bitter rivals Poland and Germany, and despite the fact that the men’s team from Poland had the upper hand on the online Olympics betting boards at Bovada and Bet365, it was the Germany men’s team that claimed second place after a heated competition. Poland came away with a bronze medal after all, but you can bet the Poles will come thundering back to even up the score next time.

What Events Makeup Olympic Ski Jumping At The 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic Games?

Olympic ski jumping is split into two categories, the men’s and the women’s divisions. In the men’s division, Olympic ski jumping involves three different disciplines. The first is the K90 Individual or the “normal hill” jump. The track itself, which is measured from the starting point to the “K” point (stopping point), can range anywhere from 75 meters to 99 meters, while the hill must be between 85 meters and 109 meters. For the PyeongChang games, the normal hill distance at the Alpensia Ski Jumping Center is 98 meters.

This discipline is followed by the K120 Individual and the K120 Team. The K120 individual is more commonly referred to as the “large hill” jump. This involves a track that has at least a 100-meter distance from the starting point to the “K” point. The hill itself must be at least 110 meters. In PyeongChang, the large hill ski jumping discipline will be conducted on a 140-meter hill. The K120 Team discipline differs from the K120 Individual only in that it is run with a team representing a country, rather than an individual. The jumping parameters remain the same.
While the men’s events have been around since the Winter Olympics’ inception, the women’s events are a much more recent addition to the Olympic docket. In fact, female-specific ski jump events have only been an official Olympic Sport since the Sochi games in 2014. There is only one discipline in the women’s Ski Jumping discipline, the K90 Individual. It is run at the same parameters as the men’s K90, with the PyeongChang track set at 98 meters on a 108-meter hill.

Skiers are then judged based on the distance traveled, their form while in the air and they do sticking the landing. The panel of five line judges then assigns the athletes scores based on an average of the best performance with regard to form with the low marks deducted.
