We are just on a week away from the start of the Men’s and Women’s Basketball matches at the London 2012 Olympics. The Opals (Women’s) are genuine medal candidates and are currently 2nd favourites at 7/1 in betting, with the USA women’s team odds on at 1/10 to win Gold.
The Boomers (Men’s) are 100/1 long shots to take gold, but the Boomers look like they should sneak into the knockout stage along with Spain, Russia and Brazil as the top 4 teams from each group progress. The Spaniards (Men) are 4/9 favourites to top group B, and the Boomers should take confidence from the fact they just came off two great warmup games against them in Spain.
