Team USA Still Overwhelming Favorites for Gold


Two sluggish performances for the U.S. men’s Olympic basketball team have not hurt its chances to win a gold medal in the eyes of Las Vegas oddsmakers.

Despite a harrowing 94-91 escape Friday night against Serbia, which followed a 98-88 struggle two nights earlier against Australia, Team USA remains a 1-to-20 overwhelming favorite to win gold at the Rio Olympics, according to the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
