The Joe Biden administration is threatening a diplomatic boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China.

There are betting odds as to whether or not a boycott will officially be implemented by the President, and the numbers suggest it will happen soon.

The wagering market, provided by SportsBetting.ag, begs the below question, which must happen before the end of 2021.

Will the U.S. Government announce full diplomatic boycott of 2022 Winter Olympics?

Yes: 1-2  (-200)

The above odds give a 66.7% implied probability that no U.S. diplomat will attend the Winter Olympics in Beijing.

Additionally, the website is offering odds on what other countries might join the U.S. in its potential boycott, specifically, which will be the first to do so.
