PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Men’s Slope Style Snowboarding Odds

Slope style has only been around at the Olympic level since the Sochi Winter Games in 2014, but this exciting sport, which has its roots in BMX riding, is a freestyle discipline in which riders try to grind on rails, perform spins and do flips down a course littered with obstacles. The Olympic men’s Slope Style snowboarding odds at Bovada and Bet365 indicate that this could be one of the more evenly matched competitions inside the broader snowboarding category.

Olympic Men’s Slope Style Snowboarding Medal Results

Team USA’s historical dominance in snowboarding events was upheld by 17-year-old Redmond Gerard, who, though tied against high-level foes from Norway and Canada and not far ahead of Japan’s best on the betting boards at Bovada and Bet365, nevertheless won gold in his Winter Olympics debut. The Olympic men’s Slope Style Snowboarding medal results also featured a silver-medal finish from Max Parrot and Mark McMorris, both hailing from Canada. For his part, Parrot was well outside the top five on the betting boards at the leading legal offshore Olympics betting sites, so his second-place result was especially encouraging for the future of Canadian snowboarding at this edition of the Winter Games.

PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Women’s Slope Style Snowboarding Odds

Slope Style gives competitors a chance to express themselves in a really creative way, often without the imminent prospect of death like the halfpipe, which is why this event remains consistently popular in extreme sports competitions. Since making its debut at the Winter Games in 2014, the Olympic women’s Slope Style snowboarding odds have favored the USA, though at the PyeongChang 2018 Games it looks like a varied field will be neck-and-neck for the three medal positions.

Team USA claimed first place in the Olympic Women’s Slope Style Snowboarding medal results, but that’s not a huge surprise considering gold medalist Jamie Anderson was sitting on a very close second spot on the Bovada and Bet365 betting boards for this event. Team Canada’s Laurie Blouin surprised the crowd by winning silver, as she wasn’t in the top five on the betting boards, earning bettors who favored her a sizeable payout. Enni Rukajarvi of Finland finished with a bronze medal though she occupied third place on the aforementioned betting boards, a testament to the outstanding performance of the Canadienne rider in this particular event.

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Men’s Halfpipe Betting Odds

When it comes to snowboarding competitions, the halfpipe is where it all got started. The walls of the ‘pipe were made even taller a few years back, enabling riders to get more air and do even sicker tricks than ever before. Look for the US – the originator of this awe-inspiring, teeth-clenching extreme sport – to dominate, but with Shaun White showing his age, it might be time for a Japanese, Austrian or even another American to take his place at the top of the pile in the Olympic men’s halfpipe betting odds.

American snowboarding phenomenon Shaun White, 31, the pioneer of many a snowboarding stunt and arguably the foremost athlete in the sport around the globe, has done what seemed impossible: he came out on top in the Olympic Men’s Halfpipe medal results for a third time. White, who first claimed gold at the Torino 2006 Winter Games, went on to win the event at Vancouver 2010 as well, but finished fourth at Sochi 2014, making his third gold in the halfpipe a story of personal triumph and an Olympic record. Finishing with silver in the halfpipe was up-and-comer Ayumu Hirano of Japan, while the bronze medal was claimed by Australian Scotty James – both of which are making their second Winter Olympics appearance. This may be the last Olympic Games for White, who, having achieved this feat, has secured his place as one of the legends in the snowboarding world

PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Women’s Halfpipe Betting Odds

Female snowboarders are known to be just as fearless – if not more so – than their male counterparts, and nowhere is this better exemplified than the halfpipe, which was heightened by several meters within the last few years to allow for even higher jumps and crazier stunts. The Olympic women’s Halfpipe betting odds have boarders from the USA occupying most of the top spots, but Spain is looking to get in on the gold fever for the first time ever in this death-defying event.

Olympic Women’s Halfpipe Medal Results

The Olympic Women’s Halfpipe medal results are in, and it was very nearly a clean sweep for the gals from Team USA. Chloe Kim took the gold medal - just as expected, being as she led the Bovada and Bet365 leaderboards – and her team mate Arielle Gold nabbed bronze with a better than expected showing from the fifth-ranked rider going into the competition. The silver medal was claimed in shockingly impressive fashion by Liu Jiayu of China. Liu didn’t have a top-five ranking when the odds on the event were first tabulated, meaning that bettors who liked her chances got a pretty sizeable payout if they locked in their wagers prior to last night’s epic contest. Sharp punters would do well to keep an eye on this Chinese upstart from now on at the remaining PyeongChang 2018 snowboarding events in which she’ll be making an appearance.

PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Men’s Snowboard Cross Betting Odds

The snowboard cross is a mass-start race event, with riders jockeying for position as they race down a hill filled with moguls, jumps, pits and other obstacles in a style very reminiscent of a motocross or BMX race. The Austrians and the French are ahead in terms of the Olympic men’s Snowboard Cross betting odds available at Bovada, but third place could be largely up for grabs between several nations’ best riders.

The Olympic Men’s Snowboard Cross medal results are in at last, and this particular event was mostly a series of unlooked for outcomes. It was always going to be a toss-up as to who would win the gold medal, as Alex Pullin of Australia and Pierre Vaultier had equal chances to do so, but it ended up being the Frenchman who did the deed, and in high style. Jarryd Hughes of of Austrialia, who was actually quite far back on the betting board at Bovada, grabbed the silver medal, but his wasn’t the really shocking performance of the men’s snowboard cross. That honor goes to Regino Hernandez of Spain, who seemingly came out of nowhere to grab the bronze medal – the first medal of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games for Spain.

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics Men's Big Air Betting Odds

This Winter Olympics jam is all about getting the tallest jump possible. Think of the Big Air competition like the snowboarding equivalent to the ski jump, though of course there is less airtime involved, even if the technical display is not less impressive. The Canadians and Norwegians are all more or less tied on the Olympic men’s Big Air betting odds section at Bovada, but don’t count the USA out either.

Whew! This event didn’t turn out like anybody expected it to end up, least of the all the experienced bookies at Bovada.lv, the world’s leading legal offshore Olympics betting site. The Olypmic Men’s Big Air medal results indicate a total shakeup in the from the predicted finishing order, as Canada’s Sebastien Toutant grabbed the gold medal with a truly incredible distance on the high-jump event. American Kyle Mack, who, like his Canadian counterpart, wasn’t even close to the top five listings on the digital betting boards, finished with a silver medal. The upsets keep coming in the bronze medal spot, as the United Kingdom’s Billy Morgan nabbed third spot on the podium, and he was in the plus-thousands position. Needless to say, if you picked any of these three fellows to win, then chances are you probably didn’t have to report to work on Monday, such would have been your real-money payout. But it just goes to show that it’s hard to call how Olympic events will turn out at PyeongChang 2018.

The Big Air competition is one of the Winter Olympics’ great equalizers.

In a day of Winter Olympics filled with upsets, the Olympic Women’s Big Air medal results showed that sometimes things go almost exactly to plan. In this case, the bookies at leading legal offshore Olympics betting site Bovada.lv predicted a gold medal for Austria’s Anna Gasser, and that’s what she got. Gasser demolished all comers with an intricately precise performance that nobody else could touch, not even runner-up Jamie Anderson of Team USA. Anderson was right behind Gasser on the betting board at Bovada in terms of her odds to win, but she just didn’t have it together quite as much on Feb. 22 at the time of the contest. Third place and the bronze medal ended up going to New Zealand’s own Zoi Sadowski Synnott, who wasn’t even in the top five on the boards in terms of her chances to win the event. If you took the prop bet on her making it onto the podium then you probably made out quite well, but truthfully neither did the bettors who liked Gasser’s chances as this was a very closely matched contest indeed.

Other than a convincing win by the top-listed Nevin Galmarini, the Olympic Men’s Parallel Giant Slalom medal results contained nothing short of a total upheaval compared to how it was foreseen by the bookies at Bovada, the leading legal internet-based Olympics betting site. The PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games saw their fair share of unlooked for outcomes, but few were as dramatic as the one that unfolded in the Giant Slalom. Switzerland’s Galmarini nabbed the gold medal as expected, but the Republic of Korea’s Lee Sangho wasn’t even in the top 10 on the betting boards but he still got the silver medal for his efforts. Zan Kosir of Slovenia, who was literally close to the bottom third of athletes expected to win a medal in this event at PyeongChang, nevertheless claimed the bronze medal at the age of 33 in what will probably be his final run at Olympic glory. It was a big night for snowboarding fans, and if you picked any of these boarders then you probably had a big winning ticket to cash out as well.

What Are The Rules For Olympic Snowboarding?

The elevation difference is anywhere between 120-200 meters, the length between 400-700 meters, and a minimum of 18 gates. The distance between each participant’s courses must be between 20 and 27 meters. The degree of the slopes must be 16 degrees and the width must be at least 40 meters.

Half Pipe

This competition sees six judges decide the overall score by taking into account the height, rotations, techniques and degree of difficulty of a particular routine of tricks performed by riders traveling down a gradually sloped U-shaped course. The score scale goes from 0 to 100 points, and the rankings are decided by the highest score the participants receive after two runs. The half pipe has a slope of about 17.5 degrees, has a recommended length of 170 meters, a height of 6.7 meters, and the width of the semi-circle should be between 19-22 meters.

Snowboard Cross

This is a grouped snowboarding event in which four to six athletes race down the designed course where there will be obstacles like jumps, spine transfers, rollers and banks. Whoever finishes the course first wins the race. The length of the race is 1,050 meters at a 12-degree downward slope. The slope’s width is 40 meters, and the track is 6-16 meters wide. Snowboard cross races can feature fields of up to 36 athletes vying to qualify for the finals after their times from the preliminaries are added up. After that the top two (and sometimes three) athletes from one team will continue on to the next round.

Slope Style

Another race in which the competitors have obstacles, slope style is separated this discipline from snowboard cross is that the competing athletes can actually pick the objects they want to perform with. Available choices are obstacles such as rails, tables, boxes, walls and jump pads. A group of six judges base their overall scores off of height, rotations, techniques and degree of difficulty. Slopestyle has a minimum elevation of 150 meters, a slope slant of 12 degrees or more, a minimum width of 30 meters, a minimum of six obstacles (jumps and the various objects listed above), and three or more jumping pads.

They have 24 total medals, and the next highest total is 12 from Switzerland, and 10 from France. Vic Wild of France won gold in both the men’s parallel slalom and the men’s giant parallel slalom but it was the United States who won the most gold’s as a team.
