2020 Olympics Best Bets: Day 9 Edition

How can you not place a bet on the men's 100 meter sprint event. Finding out who the fastest man on earth is from Carl Lewis, Donovan Bailey and Usain Bolt, who has won the last three 100 meter events at the Olympics but a new gold medalist will be crowned this year.

Have to go to the betting favorite Trayvon Bromell (+110) from America this year as he was a bullet in the Olympic trials. In that race, he ran a 9.80 which would have won gold at the Rio Games in 2016, he's ranked No. 1 in the world and he topped that 9.80 earlier this year with a 9.77. Don't blink as this race will be over in a hurry.

Men's Greco-Roman 97KG

Go back to Athens, Greece, in 1896, wrestling was one of the marquee events and I have to take a shot at Musa Evloev (-150) to win gold in the 2021 Greco-Roman wrestling event. Evloev is decorated, winning two World Championships, a World Cup and a two-time European champion, including the 2021 gold. 

Perhaps his biggest threat, Artur Aleksanyan (+250), could be the man he meets in the final. The two have wrestled in the past with Aleksanyan getting the best earlier in their careers from 2014-17. However, Evloev beat Aleksanyan in 2018 and two more times since then and appears to be unstoppable.
