Nice win on the over last night and Korea certainly had their chances. I am happy for the Swiss though, for a pretty stoic demeanor, it was nice to see Ott celebrate her win with pure jubiliation. Staring at her third with those eyes is never a bad thing either.
For the Bronze Medal game, I will always play the over and see no difference this morning, especially getting it at 12. 19/15/13/16 are your previous four bronze medal game totals. There is just no way Nedohin, who was less than complimentary on the Korean counterparts after their loss to them, gets sucked into the defensive game again.
Normally, I love to play the Dog in this game, but I think you see a "Balls to the Wall " (yes, ironic in women's curling) approach by Heather here and perhaps Korea, with the extra game under her belt comes out a little tired and makes a few mistakes. Can't play it at -166, but will play it at -1.5 +125.
For the Gold Medal game, not sure which way I am going on this. Had Sweden -1.5 and the under, which cost me both in a 7-6 victory they had over the Swiss, in the 1-2 game. Ott has never beaten her and I do think Sweden has been the best team here this week, so tough to go against them. Having said that Sweden also was the best team in the European Championships and then was waxed in the final, by Scotland.
They keep saying that Ott is a better hitter, but I thought she had great draw weight yesterday.
No lean on the total at the moment.
