Gold Medal Odds For Summer Olympic Events- Candidates To Stand Strong In Rio

Summer Olympics

Friday, July 15, 2016 10:18 PM GMT

The 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil has many high-profile individual events in which there are Futures Book odds available.

Golf, Tennis, 100m, 200m Dashes, Triathlon and Top Rio Individual Men's and Women's Events
The 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro begin in less than three weeks and the Games of the XXXI Olympiad will feature 406 events in 26 different sports—including Golf (for the first time since 1904 Summer Olympics) and Rugby this year—with 207 countries participating and the Games scheduled to run through Aug. 21 in 18 different existing venues throughout the South American nation of Brazil.

A couple of individual events in these Rio Summer Olympics which the betting odds are so one-sided for the favorite that the markets are virtually unworthy of looks, are the Men’s Decathlon where 28-year-old American Ashton Eaton is a prohibitive 1/5 chalk (Betfair Exchange) with second odds favorite Damian Warner (CAN) is 28/5. And the Men’s 1,500 meters looks like a foregone conclusion to linemakers with 27-year-old Kenyan Asbel Kiprop currently listed as a 4/7 favorite betting pick (Betfred) with Algerian Taoufik Makhloufi (4/1, at Betfred) and fellow Kenyan Elijah Manangoi (7/1, Betfair) seemingly the oddsmakers only other choice to have a shot against Kiprop who was awarded the Gold Medal in the 2008 Summer Olympics after the race’s original winner, Rashid Ramzi (BRN), tested positive for doping.

Here are individual odds for select individual Summer Olympic events from a variety of sportsbooks Online, Offshore and in Europe. Our earlier look at some of the odds from the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook here in Las Vegas—where Nevada residents can bet legally for the first time on the Olympic Games—for Men’s and Women’s Olympic Team Events can be found here at Sportsbook Review. Note that the top four ranked (PGA) golfers in the world—Jason Day (#1), Dustin Johnson (#2), Jordan Spieth (#3) and Rory McIlroy (#4), have all said they are not participating in the Men’s Golf event, along with some notable others.
