Current World Cup leaders, Martin Fourcade and Tora Berger are of course favourites. They have won, respectively, 4 and 5 of the 12 events held till now. They also have other 4 and 3 podium finishes.
Emil Hegle Svendsen 75 points behind is another contender to be considered for top places but we bet in Dmitry Malyshko and Jakov Fak to win at least one event.
In women we bet in Miriam Gossner (2nd in World Cup 101 points behind) or Darya Domracheva to win the sprint race and also in Darya Domracheva and Tora Berger for the Pursuit.
