How Do You Bet on the Olympics?

Last Updated:

If you’re interested in betting on the Olympics, there are several legal options available in the United States. First, it’s important to note that not all sportsbooks will offer Olympic betting markets, but many do during the Summer and Winter Games.

To start, you can check out the sportsbook page on Betting Hero’s website, which includes a list of legal and reputable sportsbooks that offer Olympic betting markets. Once you have selected a sportsbook, navigate to the Olympics section and select the sport or event you’d like to bet on.

Some common Olympic betting options include futures bets on which country will win the most medals, individual event winners, and head-to-head matchups between specific athletes. It’s important to note that while the Olympics only happen every two years (alternating between Summer and Winter), the betting markets may not be available year-round, so be sure to check in during the relevant time period.

As with all forms of sports betting, it’s important to gamble responsibly and only bet within your means. Keep in mind that betting on the Olympics can be different than other sports, as athletes from all over the world compete and have different levels of recognition and performance history.
