Commonwealth Games 2018 odds


The dream will be shared come April 4th, when the Commonwealth games kick off in Gold Coast, Australia, in the Carrara Stadium. 70 teams and over 5000 athletes will once again look to earn the coveted gold and pride for their country, in over 200 events, over two weeks of competition, union and entertainment.

Going down to 70 teams from 71 of last games, after the Maldives withdrew from the Commonwealth, the teams to beat will once again be Australia and England, after the English ended Australia’s six-year domination of the games, who hauled a humongous 461 gold medals in that time.

It’ll be Australia’s fifth time as host, their last games coming in Melbourne 2006. This year’s games will be held in Gold Coast, Queensland, and the motto of this year is “share the dream”. The games will open officially on the 4th of April, and close on Sunday, 15th April.

The venues for the games are divided into three; North Gold Coast City, Central Gold Coast City, and South Gold Coast City, and are all only a few minutes away from the athlete's village, which will have 1,252 lodgings for over 6000 athletes. The early rounds of basketball, cycling, and shooting events, will be held out of the designated venue for the games.

Athletics and track will again be the event of the games, with over 50 different events, but there are newcomers basketball, beach volleyball and women’s rugby sevens, looking to steal the spotlight. Some of the big names of Glasgow 2014, will sadly not be gracing us once more with their thrilling presence, such as Usain Bolt, the Jamaican, and fastest man in the world, who retired in 2017. Other household names like David Rudisha, Mo Farah, and Sir Bradley Wiggins, are still to be confirmed as participating nations are yet to release their official teams for the games.

The host nation will, however, be counting heavily on their cycling and track team, with champions from Glasgow 2014 set to return, and veteran track star Sally Pearson returning for a record fourth appearance at the games, alongside Benn Harradine, Lauren Wells, and Kathryn Mitchell.

Canada has been knocking at the door and could be an outsider for the top two places after finishing among the top four in the last two games. India has also been in the mix and could be the surprise of the games come the close on April 15th.

We as ever, look forward to all the entertainment and beautiful competition the games never fail to deliver.
