As the Rio Olympics wind down, Gambling911.com has some of the last odds: Who will win the Men’s Marathon?

BetOnline had odds on Eliud Kipchoge (decent odds of -115) versus the rest of the Field (-115).

Kipchoge is a Kenyan long distance runner who has won medals at the Olympic and World level. He came to prominence in 2003 by winning the junior race at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships.

LetsRun.com writes of Kipchoge:

No runner in history has had a more impressive start to a marathon career than Kipchoge. He’s run seven career marathons and won six of them — the only time he lost, it took a world record to beat him and he still ran 2:04:05. His PR of 2:03:05 is second all-time (record-eligible courses); his average time of 2:04:21 would put him #9 on the all-time list, #8 if you remove Kipchoge himself (record-eligible courses). The slowest marathon he’s ever run was his first – a 2:05:30 – a time that only 78 men have ever battered. His slowest after that is 2:05:00 – a time only 49 men have ever battered.
