Wednesday, August 10 Rio Olympics multi selections

THE Olympic action continues Wednesday with some big medal events in the pool and all around the games.

We’ve cast our eye over all the day’s events and come up with a couple of multis that should be able to whet your whistle.

Men’s 100m Freestyle – 2.02am

Cameron McEvoy to win $1.40

The Aussie team took bronze in the 4X100m freestyle relay, but their gun super fish Cameron McEvoy has his sights set on gold in the individual event and it doesn’t appear there is anything that can stand in his way. He is the world number one in this, his pet event, and while he is expected to get a contest from London gold medallist Nathan Adrian of the USA, and China’s Zetao Ning, it’s not expected to be enough to knock him off. “It’s not about beating the person next to me, it’s only a matter of how well can I execute this race, how close to my personal best I can get, how close to the world record I can be … when I take that viewpoint, that’s when I do my best.” Go well, Cam.

Men’s 4X200m Freestyle relay 3.17am

USA to win $1.36

We simply refuse to bet against Michael Phelps. This bloke is from another planet. He’s gunning for his 20th career Olympic gold medal in the 4X200m race and, having stormed home in the final of the 4X100m, the US should have no dramas in this. The Aussies will be out for revenge, having been disappointed with bronze, but Phelps and his band of merry men are the defending champions and we can’t see them getting knocked off.

Women’s 100m Freestyle – 2.20am

Cate Campbell to win $1.33

She became Australia’s first individual swimming world record breaker in over seven years when she shattered the 100m freestyle world record in Brisbane and Cate Campbell is in some seriously ominous form. She has already led the women’s 4X100m Freestyle team to gold and a world record and we reckon her own mark is in danger in this race. Forget about every one else, the $1.33 is better than bank interest. Definitely load up.

Men’s basketball – 3.15am

Spain to beat Brazil – $1.30

The Spaniards got a harsh dose of reality against Croatia in their Rio opener, going down by a single bucket after NBA champion Pau Gasol was rejected at the buzzer by Philadelphia 76ers young gun Dario Saric. They won’t let that happen again against Brazil. The host nation also failed in its Olympic opener, falling to a tough Lithuania side and, while it will hope to bounce back, it does not appear to have the cattle to go with that Spanish line up. Gasol and his merry men are gunning for medals.

Men’s Hockey 9.30am

Australia to beat Belgium – $1.72

It has not been a great start to the Olympics for the Kookaburra’s in Rio. While they have certainly had their issues with the umpires, they only have their selves to blame for scraping past usual easy beats New Zealand, 2-1 and then their shock loss to Spain, 1-0. This is by no means an easy game, but if they are to keep their Olympic campaign alive, they simply must beat the Belgians. The $1.72 adds the value to our multi and is the obvious leg that could put it in danger, but some times you just have to put some faith in a champion team and the Aussies are that.

Women’s soccer – 8am

USA to beat Colombia – $1.08

The USA women are gunning for a fourth straight Olympic gold medal and, after easily accounting for New Zealand, 2-0, in their opener in Rio, the campaign is on track. Stars Carli Lloyd and Alex Morgan both scored in the win over the Kiwis and the Colombians are expected to provide little more than nuisance value in this one. Many of the nearly 10,000 fans at the USA-NZ game chanted “Zika, Zika” at goalkeeper Hope Solo, who upset them with an Insta post about the virus, but that is about as bad as it’s going to get for the USA.

Women’s tennis – 7.50am

Serena Williams to beat Elina Svitolina – $1.11

They may as well put Serena Williams’ name on the gold medal now and forget the rest of the competition. The world’s most dominant women’s tennis player looks set to cruise to Olympic gold, after easily accounting for feisty Australian Daria Gavrilova in straight sets. Williams has played Elena Svitolina four times and, you guessed it, she has never lost. In fact, she has only ever dropped one set against the Ukrainian, in the 2015 Australian Open. Better than $1.10 for Williams to win? It feels like Christmas.
