American Odds for 2018 World Championships

Odds to win and to medal were posted for American wrestlers.

When the U.S. Freestyle Team will be looks to defend its status as the #1 nation at next month's World Championships in Budapest, Hungary, you can look to win some dough.

The Stars & Stripes earned team gold in Paris last year winning medals in six of eight weights with two champs (Jordan Burroughs/Kyle Snyder), two more finalists (Thomas Gilman/James Green), and two bronze medalists (J'den Cox/Nick Gwiazdowski).

All six medalists made the team again in 2018, and with the championship format expanded to ten weight classes, there's reason for more optimism as Kyle Dake (79kg) and David Taylor (86kg) get into the American line-up. Both Dake, who was runner-up at Yarygin, and Taylor, who beat 2017 World Champ Hassan Yazdani Charati, have already proven to be medal threats.

Last week, BetDSI released betting odds for American wrestlers to Win and/or Medal in Budapest. Odds for the team title and for international wrestlers are not offered as of now. *The odds are on the "Retrobook" tab and it appears you must be logged in to view them. 

Only one American - Kyle Snyder - is listed as a favorite. He comes in at -$115. Burroughs, Dake, and Taylor are listed just above even.
