Great Britain 21/5 to finish second in medals table at the Tokyo Olympics


Update: 06.08.21

The Tokyo Olympics will draw to a close this weekend and the opportunities for countries to add to their medals haul are drying up. China have been the big winners thus far at the Olympics with a total of 36 gold medals to their name, more than any other nation including the USA. The bookies fancy the chances of China finishing in pole position in terms of gold medals for the first time since the 2008 Beijing Olympics with most firms going 2/5. The United States currently have 31 gold medals to their name and they are out at 9/5 to finish at the summit of the rankings.

In terms of overall medals, the USA are top of the tree with 98 to their name while China and ROC (Russia) come in next at 79 and 62 respectively. Team GB currently have 58 medals in total with 18 of these being gold. Indeed Great Britain look set to finish lower in the overall medals table than at any other time since the 2008 Beijing Olympics although the bookies go 21/5 that Team GB finish second in the table.

Unsurprisingly Japan are figuring highly in the medals count with the host nation possessing 24 gold, 11 silver and 16 bronze at the time of writing. The bookmakers make Japan third-favourites at 33/5 to finish second in the overall medals haul, ahead of USA at 19/2.

Update: 04.08.21

With just four days of the Tokyo Olympics left, Team GB aren’t going to finish at the top of the medals table. Indeed Great Britain realistically won’t be winning most golds either although they can still finish in the top three in this regard.

At the time of writing, Team GB sit in fourth position on the overall medals count with 47 to their name. The United States lead the way with 76, while China and Russia (ROC) come in next at 69 and 52 respectively. In terms of gold medals, Team GB sit in fifth position with 14 behind China (32), United States (25), Japan (20) and Australia (15).

As far as the bookmakers are concerned, China are the most likely nation to finish at the top of the gold medals table at general odds of 3/8. Indeed they are now so far ahead with just four days left that no one can realistically catch them. The USA are almost certain to finish with most overall medals and the bookies’ odds reflect this fact with most firms going 1/100 on the Americans and as much as 39/1 on China.

As such, the race to finish in the top-two of the medals table is all important given that top spot is now effectively out of reach. China are favourites to finish second on the overall medals count at odds of 4/13 while Team GB are perceived as their main threat at 21/5. Hosts Japan are next in this market at 33/5 while the United States are as 19/2 to drop out of pole position and into second place. Russia and Germany complete the market at 29/2 and 19/1 respectively.

Third position in the final medals table is much more open with Japan leading the way at 19/12. China and Russia come in next at 3/1 and 17/5 respectively while Team GB complete the top four in this market at 37/10. Way behind come Germany at 12/1 while the United States and France are 14/1 apiece.



Update: 28.07.21

The Tokyo Olympics are now very much underway and Team GB have been performing impressively in the opening few days of the event. A grand total of 339 medal events are taking place at 42 venues throughout Japan and the action continues all the way through to Sunday, August 8th.

As things stand, the USA sits atop the total medals table with 30 to their name although host nation Japan have most golds to their name at 12, one more than China. The USA currently have 10 gold medals while Russia (ROC) have 7 at the time of writing. Australia and Great Britain complete the top six on the gold medals count with 6 and 5 respectively.

As far as Team GB are concerned, most pundits predict that they will challenge for a top three finish in the final total medals table and the bookmakers go 37/10 that they finish third in the table. General odds of 21/5 are up for grabs on GB finishing overall second in the medals table while 40/1 says they will win more medals than any other country. In terms of total medals, some bookies go odds-on at 10/13 that Team GB win over 13.5 gold medals in total while the same firms go 5/6 on Over 14.5 and the same odds on Under 14.5

As far as gold medals are concerned, the USA are 1/8 odds-on to finish in pole position while China are a 36/5 shot for the same. Host nation Japan are next in the betting at odds of 19/1 while GB are a 24/1 punt. Russia complete the top five here at 39/1.

As far as Great Britain is concerned, many expect the nation to feature highly once again and the bookmakers go 40/1 that they win most Gold Medals in the tournament. Realistically the USA will almost certainly top the charts here with most bookies going 1/7 that they once again finish at the top of the Gold Medal chart. The USA are followed in this market by China at 9/2 and host nation Japan at 25/1 while Russia sit just behind Team GB at 50/1.

As far as Most Medals is concerned, USA are 1/9 favourites with China, Russia and GB priced at 6/1, 25/1 and 33/1 respectively. Host nation Japan are out at 66/1 in this particular market.
