Bet You Watch

Imagine the scene in Las Vegas sportsbooks.

If you think the NCAA Tournament acts as the culmination of sports gambling on the sports calendar, you obviously haven’t spent the summer at a dimly lit collection of monitors with people wagering on players they don’t know in sports no one watches.

The United States women’s basketball team opened as a heavy favorite against Angola on Monday afternoon in London. How much of a favorite? Try 55 points!

The men’s team, this version of the Dream Team, covered on a last second bucket on Sunday morning in its opener against France. I’m certain a number of folks felt some extra patriotism this weekend.

In Vegas (and other places) you can wager on all 32 events in the 30th Olympiad. Ever place a bet on walking? You can in the Summer Games.
