Fantastic four Olympics tips for Team GB
Plenty more British sportspeople are in action this Monday, and that means patriotic punts are available as Coral experts give their Olympics tips for Team GB.
Which famous faces from UK sport feature among our proferred punts? Read on and you’ll soon find out!
Tennis: Women’s Singles
Heather Watson plays 15th seed Elina Svitolina in round two of the Olympics ladies’ singles, having beaten her before in three sets during their only previous meeting.
Both of these two went the distance when winning their opening matches in Rio, so over 2.5 sets at 5/4 is one price to consider. Heather Watson odds for victory at 7/4, but among our Olympics tips for Team GB is the 4/1 on offer for her to slay Svitolina 2-1.
Sailing: Men’s Laser
Nick Thompson has won the last two world titles in this class, so is terrific value at 3/1 to add an Olympics crown to his medal haul.
Please note punters, this competition and other sailing races can take place over several days, so winning Olympics tips for Team GB on this event will take longer to be credited to your account than other sports.
Diving: Men’s Synchronized 10m Platform
Tom Daley is better known for his individual diving exploits, but goes in the 10m Platform alongside partner Dan Goodfellow.
As Olympic tips for Team GB go, Daley and Goodfellow are relative outsiders as 16/1 shots to win this in-sync event, but are surely worth an each-way punt.
Swimming: Men’s 200m Freestyle
British teenager James Guy set a national record in this discipline when winning the world title last year, and he is an 11/8 chance to follow up with Gold here.
Sun Yang of China is fancied slightly more for the men’s 200m freestyle, but Guy got the better of him in Russia, so can do so again.
