Bookmakers are confirming conventional wisdom surrounding this summer’s Olympic water polo competition. The US women and Serbian men are favored to win gold by wide margins in Rio according to at least one European sportsbook.

For the women, Team USA sets off at -164 followed by Australia at +350 (7/2 odds). The negative figure for the USA team indicates a wagerer would have to put up $164 to win $100, better than even odds.

The Serbian men lead the pack at -182 followed by Croatia at +625.

The longshots are the Japanese men at +30000 and the Chinese women at +17500.
