Jon Rahm Leads Olympic Golf Betting Odds

  • Golf returns to the Olympics in Tokyo where Spain’s Jon Rahm is the heavy favorite with +400 gold medal odds.
  • Team USA features a star-studded team comprised of Collin Morikawa (+1200), Justin Thomas (+1200), Bryson DeChambeau (+1400), and Xander Schauffele (+1200).

TOKYO - Odds for the Olympic Golf tournament are available, with the field looking to be full of many more stars than originally anticipated.

The best players in the world of golf are in England for the Open Championship this week, but many of them will be boarding a flight to Tokyo in a short amount of time to represent their country at the Olympics.

The odds for the tournament are now available across the Olympic sportsbooks with US Open winner Jon Rahm the heavy favorite to win gold.

Odds to Win Men's Olympic Golf

While a large complaint about the Olympic golf field in Rio was the lack of star power, detractors will have a tough time making that same claim in 2021. World No. 1 and reigning US Open champion Jon Rahm will be representing Spain at the Olympics and is the heavy favorite with a near +800 gap between him and the next closest player.

The four players on Team USA are all ranked in the Top 30 of the Official World Golf Rankings, and the tournament was able to draw names like Rory McIlory, Viktor Hovland, Masters Champion Hideki Matsuyama, and more.

The max a team from one country can allow at the Olympics is four players, so it is impossible for the tournament to see all the amazing US players like Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth, and more on the same team.

Instead, fans will be able to enjoy a truly unique competition over four days in Tokyo.

Those looking to bet on Olympic Golf can find very valuable odds on nearly every golfer after Rahm. A +400 price tag is too ridiculous in any stroke play event like this, so bettors are better off waiting for his price to drop mid-round or going with a different pick.

Sungjae Im at +3000 is a name that jumps off the board. Im just forwent his invitation to the Open Championship to focus on the Olympics due to a special circumstance. In his home country of South Korea, all men have to serve some sort of military service between the ages of 18 and 28.

One of the only ways to get out of this service is to win an Olympic medal. Im has that rare opportunity this month to accomplish this goal. Out of all the competitors, Sungjae certainly has the most the play for.
