The rest are all Gold medal bets too for the athletes events.
I feel like 1/7 for the men's team doesn't leave any real value - there is a chance that spain can beat them. They're obviously huge favorites, but they aren't invincible because the rest of the world keeps getting better.
You can get a better line on the women's team. Pinny has them at -787 or about 10/79
Jamaica should be big favorites to win the relay, barring any mistakes. The only thing that makes me nervous is the inherent variance in the relay with mishandling/mistakes. But I think that could have some value, Jamaica does seem clearly the best team there.
The more I think about it, the 100m bet I like best is the 'no world record' bet. Bolt hasn't been running his same times, and does anybody think anyone else is going sub 9.6?
In general, I'm not a fan of stringing together huge favorites in parlays. I don't know enough about the rest to really say much.
