While most TV viewers in the United States will be watching the gold medal being awarded in softball and the women’s gymnastics team event, there are plenty of other final events today at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

The women’s triathlon is also Tuesday, with the Americans having three medal contenders led by Katie Zaferes, the favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook at +275. The 2019 World Champion and Syracuse grad finished 18th in Rio in 2016, and should be in strong consideration for a medal.

Also in swimming the women’s 100-meter backstroke is another battle of Aussie vs. American, as Kaylee McKeown takes on Regan Smith for gold. McKeown is the favorite at -175, with Smith the +100 underdog in the head-to-head. Last night Ariarne Titmus knocked off Katie Ledecky in the 400-meter freestyle in the same type of national matchup.
