2012 Olympics Women’s 4x100m Relay Betting Odds

Filed under: Other Sports Odds |

The United States women’s 4x100m relay team has been set as the favorite to win the gold medal, unlike their men’s counterpart. But they should get some strong competition from Jamaica, who happens to be the big favorite in the men’s race.

For the Women’s relay though, the United States has been set at 4/5 favorites on  2012 Olympics Track odds available at Bovada Sportsbook. However, with Jamaica set at 11/10, the odds are certainly close when it comes to which team will win the gold.

Oddsmakers definitely do not see any other relay team outside of the United States or Jamaica coming up to steal the gold. The next-closest relay team on the betting line is the team of Trinidad and Tobago, well back at 16/1 on the payout.

The United States had dominated this event for four straight Olympic games, but since the Sydney Olympics in 2000 there have been three different winners, none of which are the United States. It was Russia who took the gold medal in the Beijing games, with Jamaica winning in Athens in 2004.

The U.S team looks to bring back that winning tradition in this event, with the first gold medal since the 1996 Atlanta games.

Jamaica will try to spring the mild upset, which would probably give both their men’s and women’s relay team the gold medal.

Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake are both on the men’s Olympics relay team as the two fastest men in the world. They are big favorites to win the gold medal, with the united States coming in as the second overall favorites, but well back on the line.

Both the men’s and women’s 4x100m Relay final takes place on Friday, August 11.
