USA Women’s Olympic Gymnastics Team 2024 Predictions: Roster For Paris

Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

The 2024 Paris Olympics will be a quest for the United States women’s gymnastics team to get back to the top.

The Americans won a gold medal in the women’s team all-around competition in 2012 and 2016, the first time that Team USA had won back-to-back titles. But at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, athletes from Russia got the gold medal and the Americans took home silver.

Before we get to France, though, the members of the U.S. delegation must be chosen. And Minneapolis will be the place where that happens, as the U.S. Olympic Team Trials are set for June 27-30 at the Target Center.

There won’t be Minnesota sports betting in time for the 2024 Paris Olympics, but there will still be plenty of excitement around the Games. With that in mind, we created odds for who will make the U.S. women’s gymnastics team in France this summer. The Paris Olympics are scheduled for July 26 to Aug. 11. Gymnastics events (officially called artistic gymnastics, to set them apart from rhythmic gymnastics) are scheduled July 27 to Aug. 5.

See the USA Gymnastics website for event details.

Favorites For U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Team

Simone Biles is regarded as one of the greatest women, if not the greatest woman, ever to compete in gymnastics. She won four gold medals at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, including one as a part of that team title. She also was first in the individual all-around, floor exercise and vault. In the 2020 Games she won bronze in the balance beam and was again part of a team medal, this time silver.

Biles won her eighth U.S. all-around title at the 2023 U.S. Gymnastics Championships in San Jose, California, extending her own record. No other American, man or woman, has won as many. At age 26 (she turned 27 last month), Biles also became the oldest American woman ever to win the all-around. She is a prohibitive favorite in our odds at -6000, which is a 98.4% implied probability, to make this year’s Olympic team. created these odds exclusively; they would not be found at Minnesota sportsbook apps even if they were legal.

Shilese Jones is about as much of a lock as Biles, with -5000 odds (a 98.0% probability). Jones won the silver medal in the all-around at the 2023 U.S. Championships and earned the gold medal in the uneven bars for the second consecutive year. Jones will turn 22 during the Paris Olympics.

Other USA Gymnastics Contenders For Olympics

The other three gymnasts who we tip to be on Team USA in Paris are Jade Carey (-750 odds, 88.2% probability), Sunisa Lee (-450, 81.8%) and Kayla DiCello (-150, 60%). Our picks to be alternate members of the team are Jordan Chiles (-600 odds to be an alternate, or an 85.7% probability) and veteran Gabby Douglas (-450, 81.8%).

The bronze medalist in the all-around at the 2023 U.S. Championships, Leanne Wong, has +125 odds to make the team as an alternate.

If the state were to enact sports wagering, it would attract major operators that would offer Minnesota sports betting promo codes as enticements for folks to sign up. Perhaps this could happen before the 2026 Winter Olympics in Italy?
