Tuesday evening and early Wednesday sees the final swimming events of the games and online bookmaker provides a preview of our chances on what has been a golden return to form:

Mens 4x100m Medley

The last Mens event where we are leading the race for Gold, priced at $1.50 ahead of the Poms on $2.63 – all other contenders are on double digits.


Mens 50m Freestyle

England’s Ben Proud is holding off the challenge of our swim stars, priced as the $1.53 favourite ahead of Cameron McEvoy ($5.50), Matt Abood ($6.50) and James Magnussen ($7.50).


Mens 1500m Freestyle

Canadian Ryan Cochrane ($1.14) is the short favourite for the gold ahead of Mark Horton on $6.50 with our other hope Jordan Harrison a large outsider on $51.


Mens 200m Individual Medley

Aussies Daniel Tranter ($2.75) and Thomas Fraser-Holmes ($3.25) are in with a good chance of picking up medals but the gold is favoured to go to South African Chad Le Clos ($2.37).


Womens 4x100m Medley

The girls are priced at $1.005 to pick up another gold for Australia with the next best team being England at odds of $17 – The Kiwis are paying $51.


Womens 50m Backstroke

Emily Seebohm is our best chance of getting a medal, third in the betting at $4.00 behind Welshwoman Georgia Davies ($1.57) and England’s Lauren Quigley ($3.25).


Womens 400m Freestyle

Bronte Barratt is priced at $5.00 but faces a tough ask to beat Welshwoman Jazz Carlin ($1.67) and Kiwi Lauren Boyle ($2.75).


“It’s a shame it has to end, if only we could have bowls, boxing and the other events played in the pool! But we look like closing the swimming events with at least two more golds – hopefully more,” said’s Will Byrne.
