Stoch or Schlierenzauer? After the training and the qualification for the opening event in Oberstdorf the bookmakers agree. The winner of the 62nd 4-Hills-Tournament will either be Kamil Stoch or Gregor Schlierenzauer.
Stoch and Schlierenzauer showed some strong jumps on Saturday in training and qualification, but didn't put all their cards on the table just yet and came in sixth (Stoch) and seventh (Schlierenzauer). Still they remain the top favorites.
The odds are 3.2/1 for a win of Stoch, 3.3/1 for a win of Schlierenzauer. After their good performances yesterday, Norway's Anders Bardal and Thomas Morgenstern of Austria improved: The odds for Bardal are 5/1, for Morgenstern 9/1.
The odds of 41-year-old veteran Noriaki Kasai increased the most. After this top jumps on Saturday they went from 22/1 to 8/1 and he is now considered one of the favorites by the bookmakers.
