According to oddsmakers, Jamaica is the favorite in this event, as they have a money line of -275. The United States is the next closest odds with +275 while Trinidad and Tobago have the next closest odds of +2000.
Jamaica has the top two sprinters in the world as part of their team, including Usain Bolt, who is largely considered the fastest man in the world. Jamaica won the gold in this event back in 2008 and they also won the 2009 and 2011 World Championships.

Trinidad and Tobago placed sixth in this event at the 2011 World Championship but dealt with issues in the race from the U.S., while affected their finish. They did take second at the 2009 World Championship and won the silver in the 2008 Olympics for this event.
