The 2022 World Athletics Championship continues in Eugene, OR, and sports fans are wagering on different events at FanDuel Sportsbook. The World Athletics Championship is defined by track and field, and the women's 4x100 relay will be one event to watch.

World Athletics Championship: Women's 4x100 Favorites

Jamaica is the heavy favorite to win the Gold Medal with -550 odds. The Jamaican team used Briana Williams, Natalliah White, Kemba Nelson and Ramona Burchell in the preliminaries, but could substitute medalists Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Shericka Jackson and Elaine Thompson-Herah if they choose to.

Team USA has the next best odds at +430, however, that still puts them in a distant second. The Americans had Melissa Jefferson, Aleia Hobbs, Jenna Prandini and Twanisha Terry on the preliminary team as well, but time will tell if they opt to make some changes.

Here are the FanDuel Sportsbook leading favorites and contenders to win the women's 4x100 gold medal.
