Gambling911.com has your Rio Olympics odds to win the Men’s 100m with Jamaican Usain Bolt the nearly 1-2 favorite and American Justin Gatlin at 2-1 odds.

This is one of the most highly anticipated events of the Summer Olympics with Gatlin offering much anticipated competition to Bolt, not to mention great betting value that would pay $20 for every $10 bet.

But Gatlin does come with baggage.  He has been dragged into the doping scandal surrounding the Olympics , but believes he has already made amends.

"At the end of the day, the time has been served. I've served that time," the 34-year-old Gatlin told AP on Wednesday. "I've dealt with that punishment. I've moved forward."

Gatlin, who won gold at 100 meters at the 2004 Olympics, has been caught using banned substances twice and served a four-year ban.
