The Men's Long Jump odds for the Tokyo Olympics have Miltiadis Tentoglou and Tajay Gayle as co-favorites.

This is one of the more competitive events at this year's Olympics.

Miltiadis Tentoglou and Tajay Gayle pay $325 for every $100 bet.

Tentoglou is the Greek track and field long jumper who has won the gold medal at the 2018 European Championships.

The 20-year-old became the youngest Greek to conquer the top of European Championship in men category.

Earlier this year, he achieved a distance of 8.60 meters in the long jump, the best jump in the world for 2021, at a track and field event in Athens.

“I have not made many jumps so far this year, since my coach and I work mainly on speed, through which I have managed to improve my performance. I believe that a bigger jump, even breaking the national record, can come soon,” Tentoglou said.

Track and field analyst and SportsMax.tv Tokyo Take host Leighton Levy believes Gayle will be a force in Tokyo.

“His improved speed is an asset and once he makes the adjustments on the runway for that additional speed, we are in for a spectacular performance from Gayle.”

JuVaughn Harrison pays a little more at 4-1 odds, $400 for every $100 bet.

He is set to become the first American man since Jim Thorpe in 1912 to compete in the both the long jump and high jump at the Olympics.

Juan Miguel Echevarria, representing Cuba, pays $500 for every $100 bet.
