Bode Miller has five Olympic medals already. Will he add a sixth to his collection on Sunday?

Miller's quest for another medal in the men's downhill is one of the highlights of Day 2 in Sochi.

NBC Sports' Jack Doles joined SportsNet Central to break down Miller's chances.

"I'll tell you right now, Bode Miller looks fantastic on this hill," Doles told CSN's Jen Lada on Saturday. "And it's a dangerous hill. There were about 10 or 12 competitors during their training runs that crashed. Bode again the fastest guy down that hill, and afterward he said, 'This is the type of hill that if you're not focused, it can kill you.' He actually said that. It is a dangerous hill and also makes for very exciting racing.

"He absolutely is (the favorite). And one of the things that actually makes him dangerous in this — I talked to him in Park City (Utah) at an Olympic summit before he left — and he said, 'I don't care if I win a medal. I don't care. All I want to do is go out there and compete.' And when you can go in there with that mind set, sometimes that can just lighten the pressure."

The men's downhill is one of six events that will hand out medals on Sunday.
