Our Olympics boxing betting tips for the men’s competition
It’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that Bakhodir Jalolov will win the super heavyweight title, and not even Kamshybek Kunkabayev is going to stand much of a chance here. Similarly, the middleweight division looks like it could be Oleksandr Khyzniak’s for the taking. The only exception would be if Eumir Marcial somehow finds the form to cause a big upset.
It’s also a fairly one-sided contest in the battle for the lightweight gold. Ultimately this is all about Andy Cruz, and it’s the Cuban fighter’s gold to lose. Of course, there’s every chance that Keyshawn Davis or even Hovhannes Bachkov might claim a shock victory, but we think that Cruz will be getting the gold.
We’d prefer to take our chances on the flyweight competition where there’s a fascinating three-way battle between the likes of Galal Yafai, Saken Bibossinov and Carlo Paalam to get the gold.
Our tip is to back Yafai as Bet365 has odds of 2.50 for the British fighter to win here.
Who’s leading the Olympics boxing odds in the women’s tournament?
Successful betting on Olympics is all about spotting those shock results. There would have to be an almighty shock for Buse Naz Cakiroglu to not win the flyweight gold. After all, pretty much every online sportsbook from Betway to Pinnacle has the Turkish boxer down to get the gold in this division.
So what’s the best value that you can get from your Olympics boxing bets?
Our tip is to bet on the welterweight division. This offers an awesome fight between Gu Hong and Busenaz Surmeneli for the gold. Bet365 has odds of 2.00 for a Surmeneli win, and 2.75 for a Hong victory. We’re going to stick our necks out and say that Gu Hong is going to win this as the Chinese boxer has a great all-round ability and the endurance to win where it matters.
Beyond the welterweight division there will be plenty of people who will be betting on Beatriz Soares Ferreira to win the women’s lightweight contest. Obviously there’s still a chance that Kellie Harrington might cause some problems, but we reckon that Ferreira is in the right form to get the gold.
It’s also looking increasingly likely that Lauren Price will win the middleweight gold. The British fighter is looking like she is in great form, and it remains to be seen whether Li Qian or Nouchka Fontijn can stop her in her tracks. All of which should make for a thrilling end to the women’s Olympic boxing competition.
