Tokyo 2020 Predictions & Betting Odds


Despite London 2012 and Rio 2016 being two of the biggest and best Olympics on record, we’re expecting something truly special when the Games land in Tokyo next summer and we’re already getting excited here at CanadianSportsBetting.ca.

It’s going to be a huge spectacle, with over 10,000 athletes touching down in Japan, including previous Gold medal winners and many exciting young talents.

It’s the one time of year when sportsbooks turn their attention away from the big four sports such as the NFL and NBA and put their focus on the likes of archery, badminton and wrestling.

Over the next few months we’ll continue to build up to Tokyo 2020 and you’ll find all you need to know from the latest odds and offers to full scheduling on this very page!

Olympics 2020 Betting Sites

The likes of bet365 and Bwin, as well as many other well-established sportsbooks are always good to play with as they have experts who are well and truly in the know, and offer more markets than the less well-known outlets.

Olympics 2020 Betting Odds

The number of markets currently available to bet on are quite limited. This is due to the fact that no Olympic teams have been announced and there’s still a significant amount of time before the Games begins.

As we edge closer to the Olympics more markets and betting odds will begin to appear, from outright wagers on the Medals table and such like, to odds on specific events.

One event you can currently bet on, although the runners are far from confirmed, is the Men’s 100m Winner market. Canada’s Andre De Grasse is a leading contender, alongside Jamaican legend Yohan Blake. The odds for the event are currently:

  • Christian Coleman (USA): +137.5
  • Noah Lyles (USA): +260
  • Andre De Grasse (CAN): +450
  • Yohan Blake (JAM): +700
  • Trayvon Bromell (USA): +1000
  • Reece Prescod (GBR): +2000

Outright markets will begin to appear much sooner than odds on specific events. The Medals Table will be one of the first to start landing at bookmakers, while you’ll also find many other markets, such as:

  • Most Gold Medals
  • Most Silver Medals
  • Most Bronze Medals
  • Most Medals in Cycling
  • Most Medals in Athletics
  • Most Medals in Swimming
  • Most Medals in Boxing
  • Most Medals in Gymnastics

A good place to start when looking to play the Tokyo 2020 betting markets when they arrive is by tracking the progress of athletes from now, over the winter period and into the Games next July.

Many contenders will now be looking to get into Olympic form, searching for season bests and continuing to progress into next summer.
