New Zealand have the best 2020 women’s sevens rugby Olympics odds to win gold
Last time around, New Zealand won silver at the inaugural women’s sevens rugby tournament at the 2016 Summer Olympics. Now, they have their eyes firmly set on winning gold in Tokyo. At this time, they find themselves in a position to achieve this on Bet365 Sportsbook.
In addition to good odds of winning gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics, New Zealand will also enter the competition with an impressive track record. They are the current World Cup Sevens, Fast Four, and World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series champions.
Now, they have the 2020 women’s sevens rugby Olympics odds at 1.40 to add to their trophy cabinet.
Australia look to retain their title
This time around, Australia’s women will be under scrutiny to defend their title in Tokyo. Previously at the 2016 Summer Olympics, they made headlines after winning the tournament’s first-ever gold medal. Now, Australia are back to record a consecutive victory.
However, as it stands, New Zealand pose a threat to their title defending hopes. So, Australia will have to give it their all to avoid any setbacks in Tokyo. Nevertheless, they still have a chance, according to Bet365 Sportsbook, to retain their title.
All in all, Australia pose as safe bets with 2020 women’s sevens rugby Olympics odds to win at 7.00.
Great Britain eye their first major international title
Another team to keep an eye on at the women’s sevens rugby Summer Olympics tournament is Great Britain. So far, the seven’s rugby team has yet to win a major international title. At this time, they are now hoping to win their first tournament at the Olympics.
Last time around, they recorded a fourth-place finish at the 2016 Summer Olympics. However, it was not the ending that they were expecting. According to the online sportsbook news in Japan, Great Britain suffered a heavy 33-10 defeat against Canada at the bronze medal match.
Now, they’ll be looking to redeem themselves by winning gold in Tokyo. At this time, Great Britain have the sixth-highest 2020 women’s sevens rugby Olympics odds to achieve this on Bet365 Sportsbook.
Consequently, with odds at 15.00, Great Britain will be lucky if they manage to record a podium finish.
The 2020 women’s sevens rugby Olympics odds don’t foresee a victory for debutants China
This time, China’s women will make their sevens rugby Olympics debut. So, they are hoping to make a great first impression by winning gold in Tokyo. However, their current winning position on Bet365 Sportsbook says otherwise. Presently, the debutants have unfavorable odds of winning the tournament at 251.00.
Lastly, Brazil women another team itching to get their hands on the Summer Olympics gold medal. Previously at the 2016 tournament, they recorded a far from impressive ninth-place finish. As a result, they will be under pressure to bounce back from their poor performance by winning gold in Tokyo.
Unfortunately, Brazil have the worst 2020 women’s seven rugby Olympics odds at 501.00 on the online sportsbooks in Japan to achieve this.
