Friday, 8 PM ET, Men's Big Air SnowboardingFree Olympic Pick: Carlos Garcia Knight +580Best Lines Offered All: 5Dimes
  • Max Parrot (Canada) wins men's big air +185
  • Mark McMorris (Canada) wins men's big air +350
  • Carlos Garcia Knight (New Zealand) wins men's big air +580
  • Jonas Boesiger (Switzerland) wins men's big air +925
  • Niklas Mattsson (Sweden) wins men's big air +1300
  • Sebastien Toutant (Canada) wins men's big air +1300
  • Torgei Bergrem (Norway) wins men's big air +1300
  • Kyle Mack (USA) wins men's big air +1400
  • Chris Corning (USA) wins men's big air +1700

The Olympic odds favorite in this event will not be competing as Norway’s Marcus Kleveland was surprisingly ousted in the qualifying round after a middling first attempt and a disastrous second in which he upped the ante to a difficult 1620 rotation and failed to land it. That leaves us with a pair of Canadians in Parrot and McMorris as the chalk of the field.

However, we will bank on the Kiwi, Knight, to bring home the gold for New Zealand. Knight was the top qualifier Wednesday after landing a switch backside 1620 on both of his attempts and dusted the field. Let’s see Knight do it one more time and bring us the cash in our Olympic picks for Men’s Big Air snowboarding.

Saturday, 1:35 AM ET, Men's Curling Gold Medal Game, USA vs. SwedenFree Olympic Pick: USA + 1½

Curling has never garnered more attention south of the Canadian border than this year as the Americans have landed in the gold-medal game against the heavily-favored Swedes. USA stunned Canada 5-3 to advance, while Sweden throttled Switzerland 9-3 in a lopsided affair. The Americans got game, as they say, and after a spectacular win over their neighbors up north they could very well shock the No. 1 Swedes despite bowing 10-4 in the round robin earlier in the tournament. Grab the 1½ head start and cash with the Americans.

Saturday, Midnight ET, Men's 50km Classic Cross Country SkiingFree Olympic Pick: Dario Cologna +350
  • Alexey Poltoranin (Khazikstan) wins men's 50km mass start +255
  • Iivo Niskanen (Finland) wins men's 50km mass start +280
  • Dario Cologna (Switzerland) wins men's 50km mass start +350
  • Martin Johnsrud Sundby (Norway) wins men's 50km mass start +550
  • Alex Harvey (Canada) wins men's 50km mass start +750
  • Aleksandr Bolshunov (Russia) wins men's 50km mass start +1500

Switzerland’s Cologna won his third consecutive Olympic gold medal in the men's 15km individual Friday and is the first male cross-country skier to claim three gold medals in one event. It was his first medal at the Pyeongchang Games and fourth career Olympic medal, all gold, in his storied career. The man is on a roll, so why not back the Swiss sensation and watch him win gold while we make it!
