Maybe it's the big ice. Or the home cooking. Or maybe Bovada recognizes just how desperately the Russians need to win this gold medal.

Whatever the reason, the Las Vegas oddsmakers have made Team Russia the favorite at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Here's a look at how they see the field. I don't think I'd put money on the Czechs ahead of Finland and the Swiss, but hey, I'm not Vegas.

Russia -- 11/5

Canada -- 9/4

Sweden -- 4/1

USA --  6/1

Czech Republic -- 17/2

Finland -- 10/1

Switzerland -- 20/1

Slovakia -- 25/1

Norway  -- 200/1

Latvia -- 400/1

Austria -- 900/1

Slovenia -- 900/1
