by Scott Burgess on Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

The United States has a chance to come up big in Women’s Gymnastics tonight, Tuesday July 31st, at the 2012 Olympics. The U.S. won the 2011 Team World Championship, while Russia took second and China placed third. Olympic oddsmakers see the United States as -110 moneyline favorites to win Women’s Team Gymnastics Gold. Let’s have a look at all the Women’s Gymnastics Odds. Be sure to make your Women’s Gymnastics predictions before they hit the floor.

The United States won the team silver at the 2008 Olympics while China won the gold. The U.S. won the 2011 Team World Championship, while Russia took second and China placed third.

American Jordyn Wieber is favored to claim gold, as she has odds of +120 to win the All-Around Competition. Wieber is just 17 years old but she is the current All Around World Champion.The U.S. team topped the standings for the semifinals with a score of 181.863. That came as Jordyn Wieber stood trying to hold back the tears after she was eliminated from contention for the individual all-around finals, which take place Thursday.The U.S. was the top scorer on the vault (47.633) and the beam (45.441), setting the table for what is sure to be a great final as Russia finished second in both events. Vault specialist Kayla Maroney, 16, tied Douglas for the individual top score at 15.900, and the U.S. compiled the top four scores in the event overall.

Viktoria Komova of Russia has odds of +250 to win. Komova is also just 17 and she was the 2010 All Around World Champion. She is also favored to win the Uneven Bars event with 5/4 odds.Although Viktoria Komova notched the top overall score during the semis (60.632) and her teammate, Aliya Mustafina (fresh off an ACL tear), rounded out the top five (59.966), the Russians did not bring the slew of outstanding gymnasts the world is accustomed to seeing.

They will carry Russia to the medal ceremony, but gold is not attainable if Team USA performs as they did Sunday.

The Bottom Line: USA in team completion and All-around.  Want to dominate the books this season with some of the best Summer Olympic Picks experts in the business? Then sign up right now and get Summer Olympic Picks Free!
