2016 Rio Olympics: Early Betting Preview

The 2016 Summer Olympics will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from August 5 to August 21, 2016. The games will include 28 Olympic sports and 306 different events including new entrants like golf and rugby. Although there have been concerns about the construction and infrastructure projects, it appears that everything is on track for the opening ceremony at Maracana Stadium.

Although these festivities are still months away, many sportsbooks have begun posting 2016 Olympic odds including Bookmaker — one of the sharpest offshore sportsbook. This is particularly interesting since they accept limits between $1,000 and $3000 on their Gold Medal odds which is significantly higher than other books.

If you’re willing to accept lower limits and a more prohibitive juice, Sportsbook.com is also listing several intriguing betting opportunities for the Rio Olympics. We will continue to monitor these odds and provide updates with the latest information.
