2016 Olympic Water Polo Odds

2016 Olympic Water Polo Odds

During the Olympics, most people will usually find themselves watching a sport that they may have never watched before. If you’re a gambler, why not make these niche sports a bit more interesting by placing a few wagers down?

When it comes to men’s water polo, a handful of eastern European countries sit atop the odds list provided by the Westgate Superbook in Las Vegas. Serbia is currently the big favorite at 5/8, while their former friends in Montenegro sit at 7/1 along with Croatia. Croatia took home the gold in 2012, while Serbia bested Montenegro in the bronze medal game for the second straight Olympics.

For any Americans that want to support the red, white, and blue, they can currently take the U.S. Men’s Water Polo team at 20/1. The last time they medaled was in Beijing during the 2008 games, when they took home silver after a 14-10 loss to Hungary in the gold medal game.

A more realistic U.S. team to root for can be found on the women’s side of the action, where the Americans are big favorites at 2/3. This is just the fifth Olympic Games to include women’s water polo, but the United States has come home with a medal in each of the previous four. They captured their first gold medal in the 2012 games by beating Spain 8-5.
