Let the Winter Olympics Begin!

Other Feb 03, 2022

The 2022 Winter Olympics, otherwise known as the XXIV Olympic Winter Games (a.k.a. "Beijing 2022") is scheduled to take place from February 4-20 in and around Beijing and venues near the neighboring towns of Yanqing and Chongli in China.

On the eve of the opening ceremony to be broadcast on a delayed basis Friday night here in North America (note the 12-hour time difference), a grand total of 2,871 athletes from around the world -- 1,581 men and 1,290 women -- will compete this year.  That means hundreds of gold medals are at stake and just as many events are available to bet on.  

Spreads.ca offers odds on many Olympic events, including some "boosted" parlays with added value.  Here's your chance to bet on curling!  Hey, money won is money earned.

Canadians and Americans enjoy some advantages at these winter games.  Many are favoured in various events.  But the most consistent betting values, historically speaking, are in Alpine events which tend to be dominated by EU countries and well-prepared athletes.

Events happening this weekend:

Curling – mixed doubles (Canada’s playing in multiple games)
Hockey (Women’s) – Canada vs. Finland
Skiing
Snowboarding
Speed Skating

Keep in mind the action will go non-stop starting this Friday.
