The Olympic odds 100 meter race is arguably the single most anticipated event in Olympic sports betting. The entire world comes to a halt when the men’s 100 meter race approaches and focuses squarely on this Olympic event. This year the race is up for grabs, but three runners stand head and shoulders above the rest in the Olympic odds.
For an Olympic odds favorite sprinter to be an American is nothing new. But what is surprising is that not one, but two Jamaicans, will headlining the Olympic odds. Tyson Gay is the American to beat in this 100 meter event. He blazed across the finish line at the pre-Olympic time trials in Eugene, OR with a time of 9.77, the second fastest time of the year in the event. Not only that, but he also appears to be peaking at just the right time for the Olympic sports betting. His teammate Walter Dix should not be discounted either after an impressive pre-Olympic odds qualifying performance, but his personal best times simply compare with Gay’s for the Jamaican’s best Olympic odds efforts.
Asafa Powell is a former world record holder in the event and has still run the second fastest time ever as the Olympic odds approach. But he is likely not even the favorite in his own country anymore after his fellow countryman shocked the world several months ago with a world record 9.72 in a pre-Olympic odds event.
Usain Bolt introduced himself to the 100 meter Olympic odds crowd in a big way. But what makes the accomplishment all the more stunning is the fact that Bolt is traditionally a 400 meter runner. He had to plead with his coach to allow him to enter the 100 meter pre Olympic odds event. But it’s impossible to argue with the result and now Bolt has a real chance to take the 100, 200 and 400 Olympic sports betting events.
