Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake Odds to Win Mens 100m at London Olympics Sunday

Usain Bolt is widely expected to win the 100m at Sunday’s London Olympics yet, at 8/11 odds, there is still some pretty good value in placing that wager

This is essentially a two-man race between Bolt and Yahan Blake, both representing the Caribbean island of Jamaica.  Blake would pay out $6 for every $4 bet with a win.

From Sports Illustrated: 

Blake's fastest 200-meter time of 2011 was a 20.38 in May, all the way until he dropped a 19.26 in September. That was the second fastest time ever run to Bolt's 19.19 at the '09 world championships in Berlin, and Blake would have had the record if not for a reaction time at the start that approximated your grandmother hitting the gas pedal when the light changes. (Not to mention the fact that he ran a subpar curve, before torching the straightaway.)

Says Ato Boldon, the four-time Olympic sprint medalist and NBC track and field commentator: "Blake lifts almost, I would think, too much. When he first comes out of the weightroom he can't sprint to his maximum ... The further he is from lifting all those weights, the faster he runs."

For those betting on the London Olympics, Bolt vs. Blake is a MUST WAGER for sure.  Bookmaker.eu is giving away up to US$500 in FREE BETS to qualified new customers here
