Silje Norendal (Norway)
This 20-year-old Norwegian snowboarder took top spot in the women's slopestyle in Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado and is the third-overall favorite at Sochi, priced at +500.
Kimiko Zakreski (Canada)
Zakreski competed in the 2010 Vancouver Games in her home country but isn't expected to medal in Sochi, as books have her off the board in both the Parallel GS and Parallel Slalom.
Anna Sidorova (Russia)
Curling is quickly become an untapped resource of hotties, and Russia's skip is leading the pack. She caused some controversy recently for some racy pics, but all will be forgiven if she can lead the host country to curling gold at +3,300 odds.
Tessa Virtue (Canada)
Virtue is every Canadian guys' Olympic crush right now. The "Girl Next Door" ice dancer, and partner Scott Moir, are listed at +150 to win gold behind Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White (-200).
Torah Bright (Australia)
What is it about snowboarding that attracts the hot girls? Bright is the defending Olympic gold medalist in the women's halfpipe and is listed as a +125 favorite to defend that title in Sochi.
Julia Mancuso (USA)
With Lindsay Vonn on the sidelines, Mancuso takes the title as hottest American skier. She's an Olympic veteran at age 29, winning gold in Turin and two silvers in Vancouver. Mancuso is priced at +2,500 to win the alpine combined event.
Lolo Jones (USA)
The hurdler-turned-bob sledder made the USA team under some controversy, with Jones winning a popularity contest over more qualified brakemen. With Lolo in tow, the States will likely get more bobled press than any other US team.
Therese Johaug (Norway)
Johaug is part of the defending 4x5 km relay cross country Olympic gold medal team and won the 10 km freestyle race at the 2013 World Championship, making Norway a -2,500 fave to win the 4x5 relay again in Sochi.
Kiira Korpi (Finland)
Korpi represents Finland as a three-time European Championship medalist in figure skating. She recently switched coaches and has been slowed by an Achilles' injury, making her an off-the-board option in Sochi.
Tina Maze (Slovenia)
Maze took home two silver medals in Vancouver and finished second in the giant slalom and super combined at the 2013 World Championships. Books have Maze priced at +1,100 to win the giant slalom and +700 to win the super G in Sochi.
Linn Githmark (Norway)
Keep 'em coming Norway. Githmark makes the Norwegian's opening ceremony march must-see TV. But the skip of the women's curling team may have her work cut out for her in Sochi. Books don't even have Norway on the board for women's curling outright odds.
Allison Baver (USA)
Baver was a member of the U.S. team that won bronze in the 3000-meter relay in Vancouver. But books don't expect much from the 33-year-old speed skater in Sochi, keeping Baver off the favorites list in her events.

Derek Jeter: Ghosts of girlfriends past slideshow

Following the Captain's final All-Star appearance Tuesday evening, we thought we'd throw together a slide show featuring his exes. Respect indeed.

"I will take 1-Kimiko Zakreski 2-Anna Sidorova 3-Torah Bright to win place and show. wow very hot!!"
Here it is! Dave's very first comp selection for the brand new college football season. This line has a chance to go down off a key number, so grab it now if you're able!
I'm usually a little hesitant to back new head coaches out of the gate, but I think there's enough in play here to support a play on Southern Mississippi. Jay Hopson has done well at the FCS level, and he was formerly an assistant here at Southern Miss. I also like the fact that the new OC is Shannon Dawson, who had that job at Kentucky last season. He got fired, so there's two ways to read the situation. One is that he wasn't any good, the other is that he didn't have the personnel. But one thing for sure is that you know Dawson is going to be all-in to do some damage to the program that dumped him. That's a nice intangible. USM has the best QB in CUSA in Nick Mullens, and while the offense did lose a few important pieces, I expect the Golden Eagles to still be very productive on offense. We'll see on the defense. I don't think it's necessarily down from last year, but it probably isn't any better either.
Kentucky is already having some problems.The Wildcats are already down two projected defensive starters. For a team that lost seven of its eight leading tacklers from 2015, this is a potentially big hit. I think the Wildcats could have an improved offense. Eddie Gran is the new OC and he did some great work at Cincinnati. Drew Barker was unimpressive in two starts last season, but he was a pretty highly recruited QB and I suspect he'll do a better job this season. The strength of the Kentucky team will be its running game, especially with what is a very experienced OL to open holes.
This game looks like a tossup to me. I have these two teams very close in all three sets of power ratings I utilize. It's an important game for both teams. Southern Miss is an upwardly mobile program that would love to knock off an SEC opponent on the road. Kentucky hasn't been to even a minor bowl since 2010, and if Mark Stoops wants to stay off the hot seat, he needs an invite this season. That makes this almost a must win Week One game for the Wildcats. But I don't see them being a full TD better than the Golden Eagles, and with the early attrition on defense, I see the visitors having a legit shot here. I'll take the touchdown with Southern Mississippi.
