WW is better at jungling.
Olaf is better at ganking.
Hard to tell.

Olaf is a far better pick than WW when it comes to late game. The longer the game goes, the more beastly Olaf becomes, whereas WW's strength lies in his early-midgame.

You can faceroll with warwick and never die in a jungle.

I own both because they both counter teams... If they're very CC heavy, Olaf laughs at your spells. If they're HP stacky like garen/sion/cho, WW eats your face off.

This probably doesn't help you pick, but it's my opinion.

They're both good Anti-Carries.

WW is far better at jungling and has the capacity to counter-jungle much more safely than Olaf.

I personally find Warwick to be a better ganker because Olaf's throw is very easy to dodge, and no intelligent person will run in a straight line to give you a chance to pick up your axe. Warwick simply points, clicks, and they're stunned.

Olaf is very strong if the game actually lasts a really long time. Warwick does less damage overall but is a great mid-game carry and late-game anti-carry. Neither of them are likely to survive a fight late game if the game is close and they've done their jobs.

I also haven't seen an Olaf in ages honestly, I almost completely forgot he existed until Brolaf.

I play both and I say Olaf does better at fighting in team battles. Warwick is a good disable, but he normally dies easily.

This is blatantly wrong.

The fastest jungle times are from Olaf. Go to youtube and look at Stonewalls videos for proof. And as others have said, WW is way better at ganking, because all he has to do is Infinite Duress you, and then he even gets a speed boost afterwards. Olaf has to hope you don't dodge (or hope he doesn't miss) his Undertow.

Olafs biggest upside is that come mid-late game, he becomes an unstoppable killing machine, who can tank turrets forever and slaughter entire teams. WW tends to fade out late game, outside of his ultimate.
