The 2012 Summer Olympics in London are finally here, and there are betting odds for all the events and props and medal totals. Usain Bolt, the Olympic and world record holder in the 100 meter sprint, will go for the gold against his main competition, fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake. The books are giving about a 20% chance that the record will be broken in the race.
Famous US swimmer Michael Phelps will also be participating in 7 events, and soccer, volleyball, badminton, archery, and all the other Olympic events all have odds on which country and which participant will win the gold.
Baseball is also continuing this weekend, with one-time Boston Red Sox ace Jon Lester currently in poor form, and due to face CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees on Saturday.
These topics are discussed by SBRForum.com personality Peter Loshak and Brent, the Head Lines Manager at BetDSI, in their weekly call about upcoming sports betting events.
