Was curious enough to go take a look at PP’s Olympic odds page.

Lets be clear the odds are extremely short for all their favourites and even 2nd/3rd fancies in many events.

The only events where (currently) the payout will exceed the amount of your stake on the favourite are:

Larkin M100BK, Prenot M200BRS, Phelps M200IM, FRA M4X100, Seebohm W200BK

At this point, going by favourites, they have the gold medals by country as:



Cordes at 11-1 in 200 breast is not a bad bet at all! I’d take it!

Blah Blah

cordes is a good bet, so is govorov… lots of these look like pretty good bets actually.
