2021 Olympics Odds: US Men’s Basketball Team Given 76% Chance Of Gold Medal

Heading in to each Olympics, the Men’s basketball is often seen as a guaranteed gold medal for Team USA. That’s certainly been the case in recent years, having picked up the last three-straight golds in 2008, 2012 and 2016. This year, the US team will be looking to make it four-in-a-row.

With the NBA finals ongoing, those not involved with that have been in training camp since July 6 and the first game of the group stages starts on July 25. The talking and preparation is nearly done and it’s time for business.

As you might expect the US Men’s Basketball team are the heavy betting favorites with the sportsbooks across the US. The US team have been given odds of -310 which equates to a 75.6% chance of victory.

With the likes of Kevin Durant, Devin Booker and Damian Lillard on the team, it’s not hard to see why they’re such strong favorites to win a fourth gold medal in a row.

The biggest dangers to the US team are Australia according to oddsmakers. They’re priced up as second favorites at +500 (5/1). Australia are not in the same group as the US so they’re likely to meet in the knockout stage in what could be a deciding matchup.
