At Olympic Stadium there will be five finals decided on Monday, August 2nd in Tokyo, which means it starts in prime time on the east coast of the United States.
The men’s long jump has Cuba’s Juan Miguel Echevarria as the +100 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, and a disappointing qualification round for the USA’s JuVaughn Harrison has him at +450.
Soufiane El Bakkali is the +200 favorite in the steeplechase, but that’s an event that’s always as wide open as any in Athletics during the Olympic program because of the wet feet and 35 three-foot barriers that must be cleared.
In the women’s 100m hurdles, Puerto Rico’s Jasmine Camacho-Quinn is the massive -500 favorite, but her qualification time of 12.26 actually puts her behind the 12.20 of the USA’s Kendra Harrison.
The women’s discus will have the USA’s Valarie Allman as the -165 chalk for gold, as one of only two women in the field with a personal best of over 70 meters. The Stanford grad was the 2018 NCAA Champion, but finished seventh at the last major meet, the 2019 World Championships in Qatar.
