We won’t be represented by a key medal chance like Jared Talent this year, but there is some great value to be found in betting for the Men’s 50km walk, and I’m going to have a Same Game Multi.
Leading local Masatora Kawano has opened a warm favourite in betting, but in front of his home crowd and with everything on the line, I’m confident he will step up and win Gold.
There is no doubt that the twenty-two-year-old has gone to a new level throughout the last year, and he strikes his home Olympics in peak form.
I’m going to pump up my odds further with consistent veteran Yohann Diniz winning a medal.
Chloe Esposito won Gold for Australia in this event at Rio, and while countrywoman Marina Carrier would need to pull something out of the hat to replicate that result, I think that we can dig out some value in betting.
This is another warm market with a few winning chances, but I think that the Brit Kate French can and will win Gold.
French is one the sport’s most consistent athletes, and she appears to have timed her run of form perfectly for Tokyo 2020. I’m happy to take the $5 that is available at publish.
The Jamaican’s are red hot favourites to win Gold in tonight’s Women’s 4 x 100m sprint and the United States are a clear second.
I think that the bookies have got the first two slots correct and I am going to select them to win Gold and Silver respectively, but I’m going to increase my quote with German running into the Bronze Medal position, in place of third elect Great Britain.
Germany were outstanding in their semi-final, and while this is something of a roll of the dice, I think that they will go to another level again in the final.
