<p>After winning the 2012 <a href="http://oddsmarket.com/2016/07/20/olympics-betting-ourtight/">Summer Olympic Gold Medal</a> in London, Andy Murray is looking for his second consecutive triumph in Rio de Janeiro, where he’s now the main favourite to leave Rio with the gold medal after Novak Djokovic’s surprising loss against Juan Martin Del Potro.</p><p>Playing in the Olympics is always a huge honour for Murray, with the world no.2 withdrawing from the Rogers Cup two weeks ago, in order to have more time to adjust to the tough game conditions in Rio. After a disappointing loss on the doubles first round, Andy is now totally focused on the singles competition, where he’s now offered at 2.00 to win on Bet365.</p><p>After Djokovic’s defeat, it seems almost impossible for anyone to take the gold medal away from Murray. We witnessed a similar situation this year in Wimbledon, where Murray took advantage of Djokovic’s early loss to grab his second career title in the All England Club.</p><p>Looking now to Murray’s draw on this event, the British player shouldn’t experience any kind of troubles until the semi-finals, where he might face Kei Nishikori. Despite Nishikori’s terrific ball striking skills, Murray seems to be just too solid for the Japanese with a 6 – 1 lead on the h2h. With this in mind, we believe that Andy should reach his second consecutive final in this event.</p><p>Rafael Nadal is the biggest name that Murray might face in the final however, the Spaniard is still far from his best after struggling with a wrist injury in recent months and for that reason, it’s highly unlikely to see him defeating Andy on a potential final.</p><p>As we mentioned before, Murray is currently offered at <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4810&book=Bet365">2.00 on Bet365 to win the gold medal</a>, a very interesting price that presents great value after Djokovic’s loss.</p>
