Rio 2016 Olympics – Football Betting Previews, Odds And Tips
After great football competitions like Euro 2016 or Copa America, can we really blame players that they are not 100% concentrated for the Olympic games?
With so much money involved in local championships or the Champions League, clubs want to have their players for as much time as possible. Who wants an extra international competition per year?

In this universe, some under-23 squads moved to Brazil to try their chance at an Olympic medal. The first game of the tournament features the winner from London 2012, Mexico.
This isn’t such an important feat as in other competitions because most of the players who lifted this trophy 4 years ago are no longer here to represent the country. Regardless, the Mexicans have a great team, led by Erick Torres or Hirving Lozano.
On the other hand, Germany are a classic contender in any competition. They have shown great results in any age group, starting from U-17 all the way to the senior squad. Their Olympic team is composed of great players like Max Meyer, Sven and Lars Bender, Matthias Ginter or Nils Petersen.
All the above are already very well accustomed to Bundesliga football and have even represented Germany at a senior level. They will surely want to add an Olympic Gold medal to their already impressive portfolio, simply because Germans always want to win.
From a betting perspective, we are looking for a spectacular game to open this year’s games. While traditionally you wouldn’t expect an over 2,5 goal game in the opening of such a competition, this year it might be the case.
If you want a lower odd bet, try looking for a “Germany to score” bet – due to the immense quality in the German attack, this is a very safe bet. Good luck!
