After much delay, the Olympic Games originally scheduled for 2020 has finally gone ahead on July 23 and will continue until August 8, and so the Olympics 2021 betting odds have been released with the USA being the favourites to be crowned the most successful nation in the medals table at 1.14.
We’ll take a look at the favourites in some of the sports too in this 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics preview, and identify some other areas of potential betting value.
There are stacks of different events at the Olympics, and so finding betting Olympic games best bets should not prove to be too difficult.
We have written 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games betting tips below for a number of key disciplines, and we also wanted to flag up a few other eye-catching selections too.
There are volleyball events, which are always popular and sometimes bring unexpected results. When it comes to volleyball, only the best teams are left in the competition at this point and it will certainly be interesting to see France or Brazil in action.
The football event will also be eagerly anticipated, and in the men’s draw Brazil is the top pick of the 2021 Olympic betting odds currently at 1.80, closely followed by Spain at 1.95. Both teams take the competition very seriously and will certainly shine on the big stage.
It’s on the track where we really expect the USA to thrive, and they will be a key feature of the Olympics 2021 track and field predictions.
We are all going to enjoy the men's marathon which will be the last of athletics finals during Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Eliud Kipchoge is the current favourite to win this race with odds of 1.50 at Unibet.
My real excitement in Tokyo is no longer about competing at an Olympic Games, it is about making a legacy. - Eliud Kipchoge, NN Running Team official website
When it comes to women's marathon, it is Brigid Kosgei who leads the way in the Unibet odds department at 2.00. The Kenyan representative holds marathon world record for women running in a mixed-sex race, which she achieved during 2019 Chicago Marathon. She is followed by Ruth Chepngetich, another Kenyan athlete, who can be backed at 4.00.
Simone Biles, considered by many to be the best gymnast in history, used to be one of the must-bets in any of the 2020 Summer Olympics betting odds categories at the beginning of the event. After her struggles with an injury and mental health issues her odds were not the greatest, however, she returned to the competition and won bronze medal on beam. Once again, the Olympics turned out to be unexpected.
