How to bet on Archery? Betting strategy, tips and advice
All competitors fire 72 arrows with their seeding based on their total scores before the head-to-head competition begins. The win bet is popular but it is crucial you research head-to-head records first before betting on archery during 2020 Olympics. Some archers have trouble against certain competitors and it is worth checking the record of a favorite against a less-fancied opponent.
Another key factor is the consistency of an archer. If two players shoot 23 with three arrows you should check out their individual scores: an 8:8:7 archer maybe a better value bet than a 10:9:4 archer – the archer less likely to produce a ‘weak’ shot.

Archery at 2020 Olympics and favorite
There are two main disciplines – recurve and compound – with the simpler recurve bow being used at the 2020 Olympics. The archery competition will be held at Tokyo Bay from July 24 to August 1 and involves a total of 128 participants with a maximum of six from each country: three women and three men. All events are held over a 70-meter distance firing towards a 122cm target marked with different colors from the outer white to the central yellow – scoring from one to ten.
Current form has Brady Ellison from Arizona as the favorite for individual gold at 2020 Olympics; he leads the world archery rankings and won his first world championship this year. South Korea hold both men and women’s team golds and are sure to provide rough opposition.
Olympic qualification continues through to next year with US teenage sensations Josef Scarboro and Casey Kaufhold expected to challenge for places in Tokyo.
When you think of archery you probably picture a scene from a Hollywood blockbuster like The Hunger Games or The Avengers. It is, however, a competitive Olympic sport which, put in simple terms, involves competitors firing arrows from a bow at a stationary circular target.
Archery sport can be dated back to the invention of the bow and arrow: around 9000 to 1000BC in Europe and earlier in the Middle East and Asia. Whilst initially a weapon of hunting and war, an archer’s skills were regularly tested against fellow bowmen.
