2018 Winter Olympics odds: OAR favored to win men’s hockey gold with four teams left

Well, this ought to be great.
The Vegas odds are out to win gold with only the semifinals standing in the 2018 Winter Olympics. And that favorite, as of Wednesday, is.
Thus”OAR” obviously has real people from a real nation. But its whole title — Olympic Athletes from Russia — has been created in order to not give Russia charge for some of its Winter Olympics accomplishments in South Korea. (This has been the punishment handed down as part of an Russian ban from the International Olympic Committee in December, the result of a years-long investigation into an alleged state-backed doping plan, which allowed countless Russian athletes to utilize performance-enhancing drugs.)
And here we are, together with the gold-medal ice hockey final only around the corner, also Bovada has OAR as the favorite to win it all with -150 odds (which means you need to bet 3 units to win two ). Cue the awkward podium presentation, where the organizers figure out the way to crown a nation which is not in the Olympics.
Bovada’s complete chances for men’s ice hockey are as follows:
OAR: -150
Canada: +200
Czech Republic: +700
Germany: +2500
The Czech Republic, that upset that the United States in overtime on Tuesday, will confront OAR from the semifinals, while Germany will square off with Canada, which has won all of the four and two Olympic gold medals in men’s ice hockey.
