The Yongpyong Alpine Centre in South Korea will host the Women’s Giant Slalom on February 12th at 10:15 KST. This Olympic Vegas odds event is fast paced downhill skiing while zigzagging around gates. The distance between gates is longer in the Giant Slalom vs Slalom by 10 meters or more. The Giant Slalom is also a two run event. The second run reverses the order of the top 30 skiers from the first run and then the remaining skiers get their second run.
Mikaela Shiffrin (USA) who took fifth place in Sochi, as the youngest Olympic Slalom gold medalist, is listed as the Vegas odds makers favorite at +150. Shiffrin went on to win a second overall slalom World Cup title and two additional wins in Are and Lenzerheide. With her talent, Shiffrin can stay on top for a long time. Viktoria Rebensburg (GER) who won a bronze medal at Sochi 2014 and a gold medal in Vancouver 2010 is listed at +500. Rebensburg won her third giant slalom race at San Vigilio Di Marebbe, Italy passing Shiffrin after a rare fall and has two more races before heading to South Korea for the Olympic betting odds events. Tessa Worley (FRA) is also listed at +500 in the Women's Giant Slalom betting odds event. Worley is a two time world giant slalom and team event champion who is currently ranked #1 in her discipline.
Linsay Vonn (USA), who has been shadowed by the younger Mikaela Shiffrin, won in the downhill in Cortina d’Ampezzo for her 79th World Cup victory, 40th in the downhill. At 33 years of age, Linsay is showing the world that she is a contender for a medal at the 2018 Olympics.
Who will be the better skier and take home the Gold? Can the USA team win two medals in this event?
