Olympic Games Betting

Betting on the 2016 Rio Olympics

The soccer World Cup aside, the Olympic Games are arguably the biggest sporting event in the world. Like the World Cup, the Olympics are only held every four years, which no doubt contributes to the hype around them. Another big part of the Olympics’ appeal is the variety of sports that are contested, which means that there’s something for everybody, as in order for a sport to qualify for the Olympics, it has to be participated in across at least 75 countries. The 2016 games, which are being held in Rio, will feature 26 sports, some of which will be made up of multiple disciplines. And of course you’ll be able to bet on them all with sportsbet.com.au.
