KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Just give him the gold. The betting parlors around Europe pretty much already have.

Shaun White is listed as a 1-2 favorite at Ladbrokes to win the Olympic halfpipe contest next Tuesday.

Behind him — way behind — are Switzerland’s Iouri Podladtchikov at 5-1 and American Danny Davis at 6-1.

Looking for a bargain? The only man to beat White on a halfpipe this season, American Greg Bretz, is 33-1. White tweaked his ankle that day and finished second.
