WASHINGTON – With the 2022 Winter Olympics right around the corner, and calls for the United States and Joe Biden to boycott the games heating up, the big question is of course “what are the odds?”

Will The United States Boycott The Winter Games?

Online sportsbooks are offering betting odds on a US diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics, and on Joe Biden’s attendance of them.

According to BetOnline, the US is currently heavily favored to take part in a ‘diplomatic boycott’ of the Winter Olympics.

US Diplomatic Boycott of Winter Olympics Odds

  • Yes (-180)
  • No (+140)

This likelihood is aided by Biden’s own admission that a boycott is “something we are considering.”

“We have serious concerns about the human rights abuses that we’ve seen,” said Jennifer Psaki, White House Press Secretary.

Will Joe Biden Attend?

BetOnline also lists the odds of Biden attending the 2022 Winter Games as a fairly strong underdog (+800.)

Biden to Attend Winter Olympics?

  • No (-2500)
  • Yes (+800)

This seems like a reasonable assumption, considering that China reportedly doesn’t even want US politicians at the Winter Olympics.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin referred to the Winter Games as “a gathering of winter sports lovers and athletes from around the world, not a stage for political posturing and manipulation.”

“The U.S. and a handful of countries make an issue of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games and link their officials’ attendance with so-called human rights issues,” he said. “This is in essence a smear campaign in the name of defending human rights.”

The Beijing Winter Olympics begin on February 4, 2022.
