MEN’S SURFING GOLD MEDAL PREDICTIONS

*odds reference opening betting lines for the event

MagicSeaweed reports 5-8 foot waves today, with a drop off occurring mid-week, then picking up on August 1st (6-10 foot) should the event be pushed towards the end of the waiting period due to wind. Since the event requires just one more day to conclude, there will be good-sized waves for the finals. This is reflected in the QF and overall pick for the Men’s eventual winner.
