Winter Olympics Preview

13 Feb 2018

The GridCard Commissioner gives the 23rd Winter Olympics from PyeongChang the full GridCard treatment this week.

The USA's best shot in Men's Giant Slalom is Sochi Gold Medal winner Ted Ligety. In Women's Freestyle Halfpipe, Sochi Gold Medalist, Maddie Bowman, leads the way. Lindsey Vonn is USA's best chance in Women's Alpine Downhill Skiing. Men's Freestyle Halfpipe, Women's Figure Skating Singles, and plenty of Olympic curling are also on tap this week from PyeongChang.

In addition, there is the Steph vs LeBron NBA All-Star game on Sunday preceded Saturday by the Slam Dunk and the 3-Point Contests. The 355 Over/Under on the All-Star game tells you something about how much defense you can expect to see.

And Sunday marks the 60th running of the Daytona 500. Check the Info Button for the Vegas odds on the top favorites.

Of course, there is the usual Saturday slate of NCAA basketball, highlighted by #3 Villanova @ #4 Xavier, #19 West Virginia @ #13 Kansas, and #14 North Carolina @ Louisville. The Second Game of the GridCard kicks off with a battle of ranked Big Ten teams as #8 Ohio State travels to #22 Michigan on Sunday.
