TOKYOTeam USA’s Men’s Swimming is favored to win the gold medal by sportsbooks for the Men’s 4x100m Medley Relay race on Friday.

This same event saw the United States take home the gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. Swimmer Caeleb Dressel is expected to lead the team to victory during the Medley Relay. The Men’s 4x200m Freestyle Relay had Team USA receiving no medal at all as Dressel wasn’t a part of the competition.

Betting On Team USA

The 4x100m Medley Relay race is comprised of a team of four swimmers that will swim 100m for each different swimming style or leg involved in the race.

The first is the backstroke, followed by the breaststroke, then the butterfly, ending with the freestyle.

Last-minute roster changes can be made to the team, however, Caeleb Dressel will definitely be a participant which is likely why Team USA is looking at odds of winning the gold at online sportsbooks.
