How the Bookies See it
- Winner: Chen/Lin (CHI) 1/6, Hausding/Klein (GER) 7/1, García/Sánchez (MEX) 10/1, Daley/Goodfellow (GBR) 20/1 - Coral
- Betting Without China: García/Sánchez (MEX) 2/1, Hausding/Klein (GER) 9/4, Daley/Goodfellow (GBR) 3/1 - Paddy Power
Chen and Lin of China are expected to sweep all before them in the competition and take home the gold medal as their compatriots Cao Yuan and Zhang Yanquan did four years ago in London. Mexico’s Iván García and Germán Sánchez bagged silver in that competition and will hope to go one better in Rio, with Coral offering 10/1 on that occurring; a good price when you consider that just one slip could scupper the odds-on favourites and open the door for one of the other talented couplings to claim the title.
Daley and Goodfellow are British champions in the 10m synchronised diving category, but could only manage silver in the European championships, missing out to Patrick Hausding and Sascha Klein of Germany. The Brits had led for most of the competition, but a poor dive in the final round meant they conceded victory to their opponents. However, that disappointment could be enough to spur Daley and Goodfellow on to right the wrong and a position on the podium certainly seems within their grasp. Their 3/1 from Paddy Power in the market without China is a very good price indeed, considering they had the beating of the Germans before their slip up.
