2018 Mr Olympia
- September 13-16
- Las Vegas, NV
- $1.36 prize pool
UPDATE (03.09.2018): Unfortunately, the Mr Olympia betting odds on 2018’s winner haven’t been released yet. 19 bodybuilders have qualified for the competition, including Phil Heath, champion of the previous seven years. Once the bookies release the spread for this year, Heath will have the best odds, for sure.
This year’s Mr Olympia will once again “be the biggest in history with $1.36 million being awarded to male and female competitors.” What’s more, the payout for female bodybuilders will also exceed all previous pots.
In an interview with Fitnessvolt.com, Phil Heath said that last year he was a few pounds down to what he would consider his best. Though it did not stop him from winning, in 2018, he is achieving somewhere between 245-247 pounds. Meanwhile, the UK’s very own Nathan De Asha, claimed to snatch the title form Heath. Shawn Rhoden’s physique was also highly complimented just a few weeks before the competition. Check out JayCutlerTV’s video below to hear his plans on dethroning Heath.
Dedicated followers of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition seem to agree that Phil Heath is set to take home his 7th win this year, getting one step closer to Lee Haney, and Ronnie Coleman, who are both eight time champions. Does this mean that you should place your bet on Heath (11/100)? Only if you think he should win. There are many more excellent bodybuilders who have been working extremely hard for a shot at the title. In the previous two years, Dexter Jackson and Shawn Roden have been switching at the second place. Also, this year Ramy is said to be closer to the 1st place than ever.

Dexter “The Blade” Jackson | 7/1
Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay | 7/1
Phil “The Gift” Heath | 11/100
