    Is Anyone Winning Money In Olympics

    I see many posters either not betting it or quiet about it

    I do not see much interest by most

    Small wagers but still up none the less.

    If you watch the pucks (men and woman) and have intermission betting in my opinion you can beat it

    I know nothing about curling but I've been throwing darts every night. Sad there's no games tonight at 12am. Game is boring as watching flies fukk but action is action. Been up every night except last night, took Norway

    Gonna guess on snowboarding tonight.

    Overall I have probably lost money, but not much. Curling and hockey have been good to me. I have made money picking outright winners in skiing time trials when the course is deteriorating

    Good luck

    Take the Canadian Men in hockey against the US. Relatively short $$, -120. My heart is with the red, white, and blue but my wallet is with the Beliebers. Too much firepower, due for a major breakout.

    Hockey is where I have been winning. Russia is super talented, yet meshed together and not organized to play team hockey. They have struggled for a couple decades in Olympic hockey considering their immense talent and no team chemistry. Don't expect Swed-Fin to be high scoring either although the ml might have moved up on the 4.5 goals.

    I know who made the most money on the Olympics.....the people contracted out to build and set up the games. By far the most expensive winter Olympics, nothing even remotely close. Lots of government buds getting contracts and raping the system.

    The same thing happened with gov assets when they abandoned Communism, gov connected people were mega rich overnight. China did it the right way, slow gradual transition from Communism.

    Like I said you don't even have to watch the games to win. I woke up to a nice win on the Fin-Swd under that I mentioned itt. I will watch the Canada game though, unless I decide to go for a morning swim, hot tub, or beach walk.

    I watch the hockey games but have not been betting. Like bigday said the officials scare me. Ever since that horrible offside call in the first game (one of the worst non offsides call I have ever seen with a ref staring at the puck) I wont bet it. Your right though JJ not much chatter about it all

    I watched approx 5 total minutes

    So many meaningless events that most of world cannot even relate too

    Summer Olympics for some reason have much more meaning and much more significant sports that the world can relate too
