The United States is the current favourite to win the highest number of total medals at 1.99, though Norway (2.20) is anticipated to take home more gold medals than any other nation over the course of 98 events across 15 different winter sports. is also offering markets on individual medal events in sports such as curling, speed skating and both cross-country and alpine skiing. Canadian short-track speed skater Charles Hamelin is favourite to win both the 1000m and 1500m events, and the odds on him becoming a double gold medal winner in Sochi are 10.22.

“Competition is sure to be fierce in Sochi this year, and it looks like there will be little to choose between the United States and Norway in the final reckoning,” blogger Antony Jordan said.

More markets will be added throughout the Olympics, which runs from 7-23 February. Host nation Russia and 2010 gold medallists Canada will be among the contenders for this year’s men’s ice hockey competition, and will have odds throughout.
