Price Per Head Sites Favoring China, USA

China-in-the-olympicsHey China, nice medals. No, really.

Price per head sites have had all the lines on the Olympics, but the pay per head sportsbooks best watch out when china is competing.

At the time of writing, China had a total of 71 medals; 34 gold, 20 silver, and 17 bronze.  Not bad, not bad. The United States wasn’t far behind with 66; 30 gold, 16 silver and 20 bronze.

But the country count really isn’t as important as the athletes’ pride. (Except for the USA basketball team, of course, which has been a popular bet at price per head shops)

There are, unfortunately, a large number of countries that have not won any medals. Even after several visits to the Olympics, these countries keep going home empty handed.

A big surprise is Monaco, who have participated in 20 Olympics. They only managed to win a bronze in the now defunct art competition in the 1924 Olympics. Unfortunately for Monaco, medals in art competitions are no longer recognized by the IOC.
