    Does anybody have knowledge of why china is second favourites behind USA?
    I know it was the Beijing games but they beat USA by 16 golds,

    6/4 on them finishing top could be value

    I backed USA last time out using the same logic - well beaten in the end

    Home advantage is massive in Olympics, can't see China doing as well this time around

    I had to ask for prices 4 years ago. Only Ladbrokes and Celtic came back to me. Most others wouldn't quote any.

    As I said above, only boyles are the only bookies with a market so far.
    Betfair have something similar.

    They aren't two sets of prices either, look again

    Paddy Power has

    2/7 Ireland < 1.5 Golds
    9/4 Ireland > 1.5 Golds

    http://www.paddypower.com/bet/olympics/2012-olympics?ev_oc_grp_ids=706735

    They also have markets for Total medals but no quote for Ireland for this market (only for USA, GB, Australia, Canada, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Russia, China)

    http://www.paddypower.com/bet/olympics/2012-olympics?ev_oc_grp_ids=721077

    Should rebrand as Plastic Paddy Power!

    Ireland Total Golds
    3/1 - None
    8/13 - Exactly One

    PP market for number of Irish medals

    http://www.paddypower.com/bet?action=go_type&ev_class_id=83&disp_cat_id=&ev_type_id=18773&ev_oc_grp_ids=754367

    I reckon we could well end up with 3 - 2 in boxing and 1 more most likely in sailing

    However the 100/1 on no medals interests me here. We have one very likely medal from Katie Taylor obviously, but if she does mess up her first match or get a tricky draw, which is a bit more likely due to some weights being combined in the womens boxing then who knows...
