Brazil are the 15/8 favourites to win the mens Olympic football although all eyes will be on Stuart Pearces men and William Hill make Team GB 5/1 for the gold medal. Spain are the 9/4 second favourites with Uruguay some way behind the three favourites at 9/1. In the womens competition, Hills make USA the 11/4 favourites to win the gold medal with Brazil and current world champions, Japan, 3/1. Hope Powells ladies are 16/1 to win the gold medal. The double for both Team GB sides to grab gold pays 101/1 at Hills.
Team GB are relative outsiders in both the mens and womens competition, but they do have experienced hands in charge and we are certainly expecting them to be well backed as the Olympics draw closer, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
