Why can't my dog guess which hand the treat is in?

I think she has a good sense of smell. Better than mine. She can find treats when I hide them in the house. But at least half the time she picks the wrong hand when I put the treat in one of the hands and then get her to pick. She'll usually go over and start sniffing and licking the wrong hand! It's weird! Is her sense of smell really inferior to most dogs'?

If you are handling the morsels with both hands that may present enough scent in the off hand to confuse her. That wouldn't present any difficulty for my dog, though.
