According to oddsmakers, Mitchell Watt of Australia is the favorite to claim gold, as he has 11/5 odds. Other short odds to win are Greg Rutherford (4/1) of England and Sebastian Bayer (13/2) of Germany.

Watt is 24 years old and competing in his first Olympics this year. Watt placed second at the 2011 World Championships after finishing third in 2009. He also placed third in the 2010 World Indoor Championships for this event.

Rutherford is 25 and competing in his second Olympic Games. Though he competed in 2008, he was just 21 and wasn’t a factor in the medals. His most recent world competition saw Rutherford take second in the long jump at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Bayer is 26 years old. He competed in the 2008 Olympics but failed to reach the final round. He is the two-time defending European Indoor Champion in the long jump and he won the 2012 European Outdoor title in this event as well.

The 2012 Summer Olympics will take place from London, England from July 27 through August 12 of this summer. For the complete odds for which jumper will win the gold medal in Men’s Long Jump, see below.
