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

Men’s Marathon
Eliud Kipchoge (KEN) -130
Galen Rupp (USA) +500
Stanley Biwott (KEN) +650
Lemi Berhanu (ETH) +900
Tesfaye Abera (ETH) +1000
Stephen Kiprotich (UGA) +1200
Feyisa Lelisa (ETH) +1400

The last athletics event of Rio 2016 goes early Sunday in the men’s marathon. Kenya’s Kipchoge is the favorite to win the 26-mile ordeal, paying out -130, with Rupp of the USA at +500. Defending champion Kiprotich of Uganda is worth a look at +1200.

Men’s Basketball
Gold Medal Match 2:45 p.m. ET
USA -2000 -15.5
Serbia +1000 +15.5
Bronze Medal Match 10:30 a.m ET
Spain -275 -6.5
Australia +220 +6.5

The final event of Rio 2016 is the men’s basketball gold medal match, pitting the star-studded U.S. squad against Serbia. While the Americans have progressed to the finals as expected, the margin of victory has created some cause for concern. These two squads met in the preliminary round, as the U.S. escaped with a narrow three-point win, so a tightly contested affair isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

Women’s Middleweight Final 1:00 p.m. ET
Claressa Shields (USA) -1600
Nouchka Fontijn (NED) +500
Men’s Flyweight Final 1:15 p.m. ET
Misha Aloyan (RUS) -125
Shakhobiddin Zoirov (UZB) -125
Men’s Super Heavyweight Final 2:15 p.m ET
Joseph Joyce (GBR) -170
Tony Yoka (FRA) +110

Shields of the U.S. enters the women’s middleweight gold medal boxing match as a massive -1600 favorite against Fontijn of the Netherlands. Shields, the defending Olympic champion, has been dominant throughout the tournament, and looks to become the first American to win back-to-back gold medals. The men’s flyweight final between Aloyan and Zoirov is a toss up, and the men’s super heavyweight final sees Great Britain’s Joyce a slight favorite over Yoka of France.
