Odds and prop bets on the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics

With the Olympics now less than two days away, it's time to check out who the favorites are in a litany of events. Bovada put out its odds Wednesday; this is merely a dollop of what you can lay down cash for right now. You want the full thing? www.Bovada.lv.       

The most eye-opening bet is whether the Jamaican bobsleigh team will fail to finish its race due to a crash. Somewhat mean-spirited but also an intriguing prop.
