s hopes of challenging for a win or podium. Teammate Kimi Raikkonen finished off the podium despite running

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The odds are good the U. Kevin Durant Shoes Outlet .S. will win the gold medal count once again in the Olympics.The odds are even better this year that there will be some money bet on it.Bookmakers in Las Vegas are making the U.S. the favorite to defend the gold medal crown from the London Olympics, with an over/under of 43.5 gold medals for the Americans. China is the only other country close to the U.S., with bookies putting that countrys gold medal line at 36.Its the first time since the 2000 Olympics in Sydney that bettors in Nevada have been able to put money on the games. So far, they havent exactly caught Olympic fever.Weve probably had 10 people come to the counter to bet it, said Jimmy Vaccaro, who sets odds at the South Point hotel sports book.Bookies who can usually pick the spread for an NFL game within a point or two off the top of their head have had to educate themselves on some unfamiliar sports that in any other year would not even attract the attention of bettors looking to make a score.Its easy enough to make Michael Phelps a favorite in most of his races, and for Usain Bolt to add three more golds to his growing collection. Not terribly difficult to pick the home country, Brazil, in both mens and womens volleyball, either.But making a line on things like Hyvin Jepkemoi of Kenya to win the 3,000-meter steeplechase (shes an even money favorite) is a little tougher. So is figuring out that Germanys Thomas Rohler should be a 5-4 favorite in the javelin.And with real money at stake, there is little room for error.If you put up something thats a weak line or make a mistake the sophisticated guys will be all over it, said Johnny Avello, who runs the sports book at the Wynn. They turn into good bettors if you have something wrong.Its pretty much a foregone conclusion the U.S. mens and womens basketball teams will romp their way to gold. The U.S. women are so dominant that they are a staggering 57.5 point favorite to beat Senegal in their opening game, and you would have to wager $200 to win just $10 if you like either team to win the gold.Just as dominant is American gymnast Simone Biles, who could be the biggest star of the Rio Games. Biles is a 2-1 favorite to win the balance beam and the floor exercises, a co-favorite along with North Koreas Hong Un Jong to win the vault, and a big favorite to win the all around.She and her teammates are also whopping 22-1 picks to bring home the womens team gold.Since most sports rarely appear on an oddsmakers radar, they wont risk the house by taking huge bets. Avello said he would take a couple of dimes ($2,000) on most bets, while most books limit bets to half that.Betting on the Olympics is nothing new. Betting parlors in Britain did good business four years ago for the London Olympics, and have posted odds for years on both big and obscure events at the games.But bettors in the U.S. have been shutout since the 2000 Olympics because of an agreement Nevada gaming authorities made not to offer betting on amateur sports. The prohibition was lifted in Nevada last year, though, and bookies were quick to post odds.So far, though, the action has been minimal, mostly what Kornegay calls grocery store bets of $10 and $20.If America gets into the hype of the coverage maybe it will be more, he said. But I think people watch the Olympics more than they bet them. If Serbia plays Croatia in volleyball or something like that I dont think well get any bets. Cheap Kevin Durant Shoes . Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday. Born and raised in Toronto, Bradwell is entering his sixth CFL season, with all six played for his hometown Argonauts.

Sebastian Vettel is confident Ferrari can finish 2016 on a high after his drive from last to fifth at the Singapore Grand Prix, something he thinks highlighted the strengths of the teams package.Singapore was another disappointing weekend for Ferrari, with a suspension issue in qualifying dashing Vettels hopes of challenging for a win or podium. Teammate Kimi Raikkonen finished off the podium despite running third ahead of Lewis Hamilton before a questionable strategy call late on.Despite the negatives from Singapore Vettel thinks his performance in Singapore should give the team encouragement.I think if we get everything right then we know we have a strong package, for sure, Vettel said. There have been a lot of races where we didnt do that; some was up to us, some was up to stuff that happened, but for sure it didnt end up so far the wway we wanted and were not yet where we want to be. Wholesale Kevin Durant Shoes. But I think we believe in ourselves.Ferrari is only 15 points behind Red Bull in the fight for second and Vettel thinks planned upgrades will help cut the gap in the remaining six races.For sure we are not entirely where we want to be in terms of raw pace. Sometimes its a bit better, sometimes its worse. Obviously on tracks like this its generally more close so we kind of expected to be competitive and then you always have a chance to win or fight for a very solid podium.Unfortunately it didnt turn out for both of us but I think going forward we have confidence, there are some bits coming still. Were here to fight and thats what were going to do. ' ' '
