Odds for Katie Taylor’s bronze medal bout

Top Pro Gif Ad
Katie Taylor has been installed as a massive odds on favourite for her Olympic quarter final this afternoon.

The Bray lightweight looks to guarantee at least a bronze medal today in Rio against experienced Finn Mira Potkonen.

Taylor holds three previous victories over the Scandinavian 35 year old, a fellow bronze medallist at the 2016 World Championships, and will be expected to make it four today at 15:00 Irish time.

The best prices available for Taylor are a measly 1/8 with both SkyBet and bet365.

The longest price for Potkonen is 6/1 with Boylesports, who place Taylor as a 1/12 favourite.

30 year old Taylor is favourite for gold with all bookmakers, and a price of EVENS with Paddy Power is the most bang for your buck.
