The 2014 Winter Olympics live stream and TV coverage is preparing for its second day of event competition this Saturday - even though we are just hours away from the opening ceremonies. The opening festivities for the 2014 Sochi games will begin today at 11 a.m. EST here in the United States, yet technically many athletes are prepping for day two of athletic competition as some of the events got underway yesterday, including the Men’s and Women’s Slopestyle Qualifications, Freestyle Skiing and Team Figure Skating.

According to a SB Nation report on Feb. 6, Russia dominated the first day figure skating competition leaving the US with a lot of ground to gain. Russia, Canada and China got off to the best starts on the ice, but there is still plenty of time for every country to make up ground.

On a more positive note for the US, Hannah Kearney dominated in freestyle skiing. Kearney posted a score of 23.05 to move into Saturday’s finals as she tries to repeat as a Gold Medal winner. Kearney won the Gold in Vancouver four years ago.

So who is favored to win the most Gold Medals and overall Medals in the 2014 Winter Olympics?

According to Bovada, the US is at the top of both categories.

Coming in at 1/1, or even money, the US is the favorite to win the most Medals at the 2014 Winter Games. When it comes to winning the most Gold Medals the United States is 3/1, just behind favored Norway at 11/10.
