theScore breaks down the Rio 2016 betting board each day through to the closing ceremony.

Athletics – Men’s 4x100m relay
Jamaica -400
USA +300
Great Britian +3300
Canada +3300
China +5000
Trinidad and Tobago +5000
Brazil +10000

Usain Bolt’s quest for a ninth gold medal isn’t entirely in his own hands, but his Jamaican teammates are more than talented enough to deliver him the baton in position to cruise to a historic win.

Athletics – Women’s 4x100m relay
Jamaica -250
USA +175
Great Britain +1600
Nigeria +4000
Trinidad and Tobago +5000
Germany +6600
Ukraine +8000
Canada +15000

Could the United States’ unusual qualification path – dropping the baton in qualifying, then winning a protest and allowed to run a special solo qualification race – inspire the team to take down the favored Jamaicans? Considering the Jamaicans ran about the same qualifying time as the U.S. without Elaine Thompson, the 100m and 200m Olympic champion who’s expected to race in the relay final, it’s a risky bet.

Soccer – Women’s gold medal match
Germany -300
Sweden +220

Sweden is the Cinderella story of the tournament, having taken down the mighty U.S. and hosts Brazil en route to the final, but their magical run will likely end at the hands of world No. 2 Germany.
