    Default - 2018 Winter Olympics at PeongChang -

    Plays will be mostly on Dutch speedskaters.
    I'm not expecting as big a haul of medals as was the case for the Dutch in Sochi 2014.

    500m Men
    Ronald Mulder +437 (to win 2.00 units)

    1000m Men
    Kjeld Nuis +100 (to win 2 units)

    5000m Men
    Ted-Jan Bloemen +536 (to win 1 unit)
    There is no value on Sven Kramer, as he is rightfully the favorite here. Both the 5K and the 10K should go to him, but Ted-Jan Bloemen, a Dutchman who assumed the Canadian nationality, is a though competitor and has beaten Sven Kramer before.

    10K Men
    Ted-Jan Bloemen +271 (to win 1 unit)

    Ladies Speedskating:

    500m Women
    Nao Kodaira -453 (to win 1 unit)
    She's rightfully a big favorite as the 7 best times of this year have been hers. Next best is 3-tenths of a second off. Off course she can fall, have a bad start etc etc, but those would be exceptional cases. Big favorite, easy win.

    1000m Women
    Nao Kodaira -183 (to win 1 unit)
    This is not her strongest distance, however, she just skated a world record on 10-12-2017 in Salt Lake City. At the beginning of the skating season. Has she peaked too early? who knows. Expecting some strong times from Jorien Ter Mors and Heather Bergsma (USA), but Kodaira just too fast imo.

    3K Women
    Antoinette de Jong +684 (to win 1 unit)
    The 2 favorites have had difficult seasons so far. For Ireen Wust it's been the motivational part, she's been here before and has been working towards the Olympics all season. She hasn't had any top times yet this season and has been beaten by Antoinette before. The other favorite is martina Sablikova, but she has been injured all season. Same thing here, no top times from her yet. They have been the class on this distance for years, but the price on Antoinette de Jong is too high imo.

    Men's Team Pursuit
    Netherlands wins gold -139 (2units)
    The question here is: Who is actually going to challenge the defending Olympic champions?

    Women's 1500m
    Miho Takagi -162
    The Japanese speedskater has been the best of the field from the beginning of the season. Just like on the 1000m I'm expecting the US skaters Heather Bergsma and Brittany Bowe to have fast times here too. Will it be enough for a medal? And which color? Takagi still has value at this price.
