TOKYO – The Olympics continue to roll on roll on with many gold medal events happening on Tuesday, notably the 200m women’s freestyle and men’s quadruple sculls will see their gold medalists be named.

Also, baseball continues to grind through the season as the MLB is still in action.

Women’s 200m Freestyle – Katie Ledecky vs Ariarne Titmus

Katie Ledecky and Ariarne Titmus have quickly become one of the most noteworthy matchups in all of the Olympics.

Titmus beat Ledecky in the 400m freestyle a few days ago and will look to do so again in the 200m freestyle event. Online sportsbooks give the 20-year-old Australian favorable odds to do so.

Tokyo 2021 - Women's 200m Freestyle

  • Ariarne Titmus (AUS) -350
  • Katie Ledecky (USA) +400
  • Siobhan Haughey (HKG) +1400
  • Yang Junxuan (CHN) +2500

Ledecky is the reigning gold medalist in the event but Titmus, and her coach, have taken the scene by storm this year. Ledecky has a chance, but an outside one. In their semifinal heats, Titmus had a 1:54.82 run while Ledecky posted a 1:55.28, and Titmus had a slow start of the block.

MLB Betting – Pirates vs Brewers

Who would’ve thought that the Pittsburgh Pirates would be one of the best hitting teams in the league at any point this season? Over the last two weeks, the Pirates lead the MLB with a .289 batting average.

However, they remain underdogs to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Pirates vs Brewers Moneyline Odds

  • Pittsburgh Pirates +105
  • Milwaukee Brewers -125

The Pirates are sending Tyler Anderson to the mound, a left-handed pitcher with a 2.50 ERA in the month of July. The Brewers do not hit lefties well, ranked 27 in the league in BA (.230).

Given the hot-hitting and noted struggles of the Brewers against left-handed pitchers, anyone betting on the MLB should take the risk on Pittsburgh as the underdog.

Olympic Rowing – Men’s Quadruple Sculls

These Olympic Games have been filled with upsets in seemingly every event and it’s quite possible that the men’s quadruple sculls is the next. The Netherlands is favored despite having two different countries record faster times in the qualifying rounds.

Tokyo 2021 - Men's Quadruple Sculls

  • Netherlands (NED) -165
  • Italy (ITA) +225
  • Poland (POL) +600

The Netherlands posted a 5:39.80 run in the first heat, the best of any team involved, but Heat 2 consisted of Poland and Italy who had better times of 5:39.25 and 5:39.28 respectively.

Those betting on the Olympics may find more value in siding with either Italy or Poland. Surely there are other things to take into consideration, but getting the fastest team in qualifying at +600 in the final is a steal nonetheless.
