Tokyo Olympics Betting Odds

by WagerHome Blog on July 28, 2021

The time difference may keep you from watching a lot of the Olympic events live. But there is no reason that you can’t still place wagers on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics as they happen for the next 10 days.

Here are some of the most popular bets available.

Men’s Golf Gold Medal

  • Collin Morikawa (+700)
  • Xander Schauffele +900)
  • Justin Thomas (+1100)
  • Hideki Matsuyama (+1200)
  • Viktor Hovland (+1200)
  • Rory McIlroy (+1400)
  • Paul Casey (+1600)
  • Patrick Reed (+1800)

The men’s golf tournament begins on Thursday and ends on Sunday, August 1, and the board is American top-heavy. Open champion Collin Morikawa is the favorite, just as Henrik Stenson was back in 2016. Stenson ended up winning the silver medal. Hideki Matsuyama is the hometown favorite, and he did win on this course in 2010. But can he handle the pressure of an entire nation?

Men’s and Women’s Basketball Gold Medal

The women’s gold medal game is scheduled for August 8, and Team USA is the heavy favorite to win.

Women’s Basketball

  • USA (-800)
  • Serbia (+2000)
  • Australia (+2200)
  • Belgium (+2200)
  • Spain (+2500)
  • Japan (+2800)

The only real question is who the US will play in the gold medal final.

The men’s gold medal game is scheduled for August 7, and even though it’s been a rocky start for the United States, the collection of NBA stars is still favored to win gold.

Men’s Basketball

  • USA (-250)
  • Australia (+500)
  • Slovenia (+800)
  • Spain (+1050)
  • France (+1100)

Although it’s been a rocky start for the United States, the collection of NBA stars is still favored to win gold in Men’s Olympic Basketball.

Track and Field

The track and field meet at the Olympics begins on Saturday, July 31, and the marquee event – the men’s 100 meters – has its final on August 1.

Men’s 100 Meters

  • Trayvon Bromell (-120)
  • Ronnie Baker (+400)
  • Akani Simbine (+700)
  • Andre De Grasse (+1000)
  • Fred Kerley (+1200)

Trayvon Bromell has been the fastest man in the world this year, running a 9.77. He looked to be a big favorite coming into the Olympics, but not all of his runs this summer have been up to his standards. The American will be pushed by US Olympic Trials runner-up Ronnie Baker and South African Akani Simbine, who ran an African-record 9.84 this year.

Women’s 100 Meters

  • Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce (-110)
  • Elaine Thompson-Herah (+188)
  • Dina Asher-Smith (+450)
  • Shericka Jackson (+1000)
  • Marie-Josee Ta Lou (+1400)

No woman has ever won the same track and field event in three Olympics, but that is what Jamaican star Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is favored to do when the women run their 100-meter final on Saturday. She won gold in Beijing and London and silver in Rio. Her closest competitor will be Jamaican teammate and defending Olympic champion Elaine Thompson-Herah.
