HERE’S what we call the motherlode.
A massive seven leg Rio 2016 multi that represents enormous value for punters, for a very small outlay.
Every leg is a massive chance in their respective competitions, having put in superb performance in the lead up to the Olympic Games.
Note: Keep an eye on it, but these events can often encounter some objections from a glitchy bookmaker multi slip, but if you find that’s the case, replace one and see how it goes.
Here’s hoping we’re on the money

Consensus Kipruto (Kenya) to win the men’s 3000m steeplechase
Thursday, August 18, 2016, 12.50am – $1.62 with Sportsbet.com.au
This event tends to be “pick a Kenyan and watch them win” affair, with men from the nation claiming the past eight gold medals in the 3000m steeple. Ezekiel Kemboi is the king of this event, claiming the past two Olympic titles and he is aiming to be just the second human on the plant to be crowned Olympic champion in the same track event three times in a row. Usain Bolt is the other man, so it would be esteemed company, but we reckon his countryman Consenslu Kipruto – who owns the fastest time in the event of any of the entrants, is set to strike and spoil the party.
Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark (Great Britain) to win the women’s 470 sailing
Thursday, August 18, 2016, 2.05am – $2 with Sportsbet.com.au
Poms Hannah Mills and Saskia Clark are the classiest pair in this dinghy class and, after having their hearts broken at London in 2012, they will be looking for redemption in Rio. The pair fell agonisingly short of Olympic gold in 2012 and, with that poise and experience behind them, will no doubt be the team to beat when the whips are cracking in this event.
Mathew Belcher and William Ryan (Australia) to win the men’s 470 sailing
Thursday, August 18, 2016, 3.05am – $2.10 with Sportsbet.com.au
Aussie boys Mat Belcher and Will Ryan will look to do the same thing as their female British counterparts when they head out for the same event. Belcher was part of the team that won the gold medal in London and Ryan is an absolute gun. The pair should be able to claim the gold after a strong start to their regatta.
Eri Tosaka (Japan) to win the women’s freestyle wrestling 48kg
Thursday, August 18, 2016, 6.05am – $1.91 with Sportsbet.com.au
Osaka at $1.91 looks the value of the games. She is simply unbeatable in this event. The Japanese has won the last three world gold medals in this event and her compatriot Hitomi Sakatomo won the title in London. While Azerbaijan’s Mariya Stadnyk has won bronze, then silver at the last two games, and she will be gunning to go one better again, this is Japan’s event to lose.
Kaori Icho to win the women’s freestyle wrestling 58kg
Thursday, August 18, 2016, 6.50am – $1.40 with Sportsbet.com.au
Ranked number one in her weight class, Kaori Icho is a legend of the sport. From 2003 to 2016, she did not lose a match, finally dropping one in February this year. She’s won the past three Olympic gold medals and will no doubt learn from her defeat and come out breathing fire in this event. The $1.40 is better than bank interest.
Brittney Resse (USA) to win the women’s long jump
Thursday, August 18, 2016, 10.05am – $2 with Sportsbet.com.au
The greatest women’s long jumper in history, Brittney Resse, holds more titles than any other competitor ever to try their luck at the sport. A trip of world titles are backed up by three other indoor titles and an Olympic crown in London in 2012. At 29, she should be at the peak of her powers and $2 for her to win this one looks ridiculously over the odds.
Elaine Thompson (Jamaica) to win the women’s 200m sprint final
Thursday, August 18, 2016, 11.30am – $1.91 with Sportsbet.com.au
The sprint king Usain Bolt needs a sprint queen and his fellow Jamaican Elaine Thompson looks poised to deliver. Like Bolt, Thompson won the 100m sprint and now she’s hunting glory in the 200… like Bolt. The Queen of speed has it all to run for and a bunch of competitors that she is set to leave in her dust in this event.
