Chicago 2016 Update: Oddsmakers put Chicago in lead for 2016 Summer Olympics

You heard it here. Well, maybe not first, but second or third, hopefully.

The Chicago Tribune’s Phil Hersh reported today the International Olympic Committee won’t give Rio de Janeiro a boost because the city is hosting the 2014 World Cup.

Interesting, but Hersh also reported several British betting sites are putting as high as 1.7-1 odds on Chicago to be awarded the 2016 Summer Olympics. Unfortunately, when i tried pulling up the odds on BetBrain.com, I couldn’t find them.

Anyway, Rio is listed as 3.3-1 and Tokyo at 7.7-1. Bet365.com, has Chicago at 1.72-1, Rio at 3.25-1 and Tokyo at 8-1.

What odds do you give Chicago?
