The 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games are set to begin on Friday, July 23 and sports fans will be able to put in wagers on a number of different events. That includes seven new Olympic sports. Of course, men's swimming has long been a stapled event at the summer Olympics and this year is no different.
The sport is full of dynamic athletes, and the 400m individual medley features two leading favorites including Japan's own Daiya Seto.

Japan's Daiya Seto is the favorite with odds of -160 to take home the gold in this event, according to FanDuel Sportsook.

USA's Chase Kalisz is the leading Team USA contender to win gold in the 400m Individual Medley. The 27-year-old Kalisz won a silver medal for Team USA in the 400m Individual Medley at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, finishing ahead of bronze medalist Daiya Seto.
