My favorite Olympic bets for Monday night


In the past week, I have watched and bet on basketball, soccer, handball, volleyball, water polo, baseball, field hockey, weightlifting and golf at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

I have laid odds between -750 and + 1800 on various events, and I find the Olympics a fun break from the mid-summer monotony of betting baseball all day every day. Pool play for Olympic team sports has wrapped up and we are into the knockout/elimination rounds.

Here’s what I will be watching and betting on Monday night.

Baseball: Israel vs. Dominican Republic (3 a.m. PT)

Israel beat Mexico 12-5 this weekend to move on to the double-elimination knockout round of the Olympic baseball tournament. On Sunday night, Israel lost 11-1 to South Korea -- which wasn’t surprising, considering they were playing back-to-back days and Israel barely has the pitching to get them through one game let alone back to backs. Fortunately, I think Team Israel knew they could essentially punt the game last night against South Korea and save what little pitching they have for the elimination game against the Dominican Republic.
