The Odds-On Favorite To Win Women’s Tennis Gold In Rio: Serena Williams 5/4

Serena has 2 singles titles and 1 doubles titles this year. She goes into the Olympics having destroyed Angelique Kerber 7-5, 6-3 in the Wimbledon Finals. Williams is easily the best women tennis player on the planet. She should be an even money favorite in this if her closest competition odds wise, Gabrine Muguruza, is 13/2. But, Serena is less of a favorite than Novak Djokovic. What’s the reason?  Williams has let it be known that she’s going to grudgingly play at the 2016 Rio Olympics. If Serena’s mind isn’t on tennis and is instead on the Zika virus, she won’t win gold at Rio.

The Smart Betting Pick To Win Women’s Tennis Gold In Rio: Petra Kvitova 13/1

Serena has beaten Petra 5 out of 7 matches. But, here’s the thing, Kvitova has beaten Serena twice. There aren’t a lot of women tennis players who can say that. The last time that Kvitova took on Williams, Petra had Serena’s number. She beat Serena 6-2, 6-3. As good as Serena is, and Serena isn’t good, Serena is great, it’s hard to pass up on the 13/1 odds on Kvitova to win gold at Rio. Kvitova’s mind should be on tennis while there’s a chance that Serena may just not care enough to win a gold medal.

The Longshot Pick To Win Women’s Tennis Gold In Rio: Madison Keys 25/1

Madison Keys has never beaten Serena Williams. If you like Keys, and I do as a longshot play, you have to hope that someone else beats Serena before Keys has to play her. It’s doubtful that Serena loses to Keys at the Olympics. The reason I like Madison as a longshot play is because she goes into the Olympics having lost to Simona Halep in the finals at the WTA Rogers Cup Presented by National Bank. Halep isn’t participating in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Keys played Halep tough in the finals. That could be a nice tune-up. Truth be told, it’s going to be difficult to beat Serena if she’s there mentally. Keys has as much of a shot as anybody outside of Petra Kvitova to beat Williams and win gold.
