Saturday's Picks to Watch/Predictions

Figure Skating (Ice Dance Short Dance)

Who are the best figure skaters in the world? It's a tough question to answer, but perhaps no one is in better form entering this year's Games than French skaters Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron.

The French connection will look to continue its fine form after making history at the Audi Cup in China with the first-ever 200-point performance.

     

Alpine Skiing (Men's Downhill)

Beat Feuz didn't show out during the Sochi Games back in 2014, but this time around, he means business. And anything short of a gold medal finish will be viewed as a disappointment.

After winning the downhill event in the 2017 World Championships and the 2018 World Cup, Feuz is the odds-on favorite to enter the winner's circle to show why he's at the top of the sport.

     

Snowboarding—Men's Slopestyle (Medal Event)

Who doesn't love snowboarding?

This year's men's slopestyle features Norwegian snowboarding phenom Marcus Kleveland, who is the clear-cut favorite heading into the event. The 18-year-old sensation will have some competition, however, from his United States counterpart.

At just 17 years of age, American Red Gerard is a name to keep an eye on. He'll give Kleveland a run for his money (or gold) later on Saturday, but the betting favorite would be Kleveland. Either way, it's shaping up to be a showdown between two of the sport's rising stars.
