In the Men’s 100m we have one of the first years in recent memory where Usain Bolt is not actually involved. 

This has opened up the opportunity for a number of other contenders to step in and make a big impression. Trayvon Bromell is considered to be the outright favourite and he’s priced around an 11/8 listing. Akani Simbine is listed as a 6/1 shout alongside Ronnie Baker. Andre De Grasse is another interesting option at a 9/1 price tag.

Noah Lyles gets the nod in the 200m at an odds-on price of about ⅘ with several top bookmakers. Andre De Grasse can be backed around a 4/1 price tag while Kenneth Bednarek is trading around a 9/2 listing. 

With the absence of Shaqarri Richardson from the women’s 100m following her positive test for cannabis, it looks like Shelly-Ann Fraser-Price is considered to be the outright favourite to win the gold medal. Right now, you can back her at an 11/10 price tag while Elaine Thompson-Herah is priced at a very solid 13/8 margin. 

Dina Asher-Smith is the third favourite for the 100m with a 9/2 price tag, and she’s available around the same price to win the 200m.
