Men’s 100m – Gold Medal

  • Usain Bolt-200
  • Justin Gatlin+200
  • Yohan Blake+800

Underdog bettors are going to be all over Justin Gatlin. At 34 years of age, Gatlin’s hair has started to grey. He’s also suffered through 2 PED suspensions since he won gold in 2004. But, Usain Bolt is supposedly hurting. Not only that, there is nobody else in this group, not even Yohan Blake at +800, who could take down Bolt or Gatlin. Chalk bettors will be all over Bolt. Those in the know will bet on Gatlin. Control the money on both guys is what bookies should do.

Men’s 400m – Gold Medal

  • Wade Van Niekerk+125
  • Kirani James+150
  • Lashawn Merritt+350

Van Niekerk is the chalk. But, really, any one of these 3 guys could win it. Lashawn Merritt might end up being the most wagered on 400m runner in the sports books because of his odds.

At the 2015 IAAF World Championships, Van Niekerk won with a time of 43.47. Merritt finished second with a time of 43.65 and James finished third with a time of 43.78. What online bookies need to be aware of is that all 3 guys are currently at odds above even money. This is definitely one wager where max bet limits are important and should be used.

Men’s Soccer – Gold Medal

●    Brazil                          +135
●    Germany                     +475
●    Argentina                    +575

Brazil will have Neymar, Douglas Costa, and goalkeeper Fernando Prass as their 3 over age players.

A surprising fact that online bookies may want to know is that Germany is back at the Olympics for the first time since 1988.

Argentina will have Everton’s Ramiro Funes and Villareal’s Mateo Musacchio on their teams. It may not matter.

The fact of the matter is that Brazil must win the gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. Brazil is the host nation. After the embarrassment at the 2014 World Cup and the terrible showing at the Copa America Centenario, Brazil has no choice but to win. Online bookies have to pay attention to money that flows onto the Brazilians in their books.

Use this early guide to help you start setting up your online bookie business for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
