Sporting betting is legal in Britain and a lot of professional punters/fans will be placing bets on the upcoming 2017 IAAF World Championships. Below we list the odds for all of the events. For every event, we list the gold-medal favorite as well as the odds for the Americans. Note: some Americans don’t have odds, and in some events, there are gold-medal odds and medal of any color odds whereas in others there are just gold-medal odds.

Before we list the events one by one, we thought we’d share with you a few stats. The odds are changing as we speak and come from Paddy Power and Sky Bet.

Biggest male favorite at Worlds according to the bookies
South Africa’s Wayde van Niekerk is a huge favorite in the men’s 400 where his odds are 1 to 12. That means if you want to win $100 on him (not counting your initial stake), you have to risk $1200, giving him an implied win probability of 92.31%.

Biggest female favorite at Worlds according to the bookies
Poland’s world record holder Anita Wlodarczyk is a massive 1 to 25 favorite in the women’s hammer, giving her an implied win percentage of 96.15%. To win $100 on her, you’d have to risk a massive $2500.

Smallest male favorite at Worlds according to the bookies
The men’s marathon appears to have the most unpredictable winner according to the bookies as in that event Daniel Wanjiru and Tamirat Tola are listed as 7/2 favorites meaning you’ll win $7 for every $2 bet (not counting you initial stake), giving them an implied win probability of 22.22%. For the events inside the stadium, the event where the favorite would return the most money is the men’s 400 hurdles where Kerron Clement is a 7 to 4 favorite, giving him an implied win percentage of 36.36%.

Smallest female favorite at Worlds according to the bookies
As is the case with the men, the women’s marathon has the most unpredictable winner as Edna Kiplagat is listed as a 2 to 1 favorite, giving her an implied win probability of 33.33%.
