There are four swimming medals on the line tonight, including the USA’s Michael Andrew in the 200m Individual Medley. Andrew is a -1200 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook despite having only the fourth-best time in qualifying. He’s dominated this event for long enough where anything close to a personal best should be plenty to win gold.

Also the BMX semifinals and finals take place, with Connor Fields of the USA the favorite on the men’s side at +300. 16 riders take to a dirt track full of hills and curves with mass starts in heats of eight. On the women’s side, Laura Smulders of the Netherlands is the +200 favorite, with Alise Willoughby of the USA at +225 the second choice by the oddsmakers.

Here, we’ll take a look at the list of events on the schedule that will be handing out medals today in the 2021 Olympics. We’ve also got a look at the full Olympics schedule here.
