Usain Bolt Vs. Tyreek Hill 70m Foot Race
- Usain Bolt -2000
- Tyreek Hill +700
Why Usain Bolt Will Win
There is no questioning the capability of the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, and why his entertainment odds are heavily favored to win the race. Bolt is the world record holder for the 100m dash with a time of 9.58 seconds.
Backing up his odds, even more, are his eight Olympic gold medals in numerous track events. He has a career top speed of a whopping 27.33 miles per hour and a 4.22 40-yard dash.
“Me & Tyreek Hill got into it 1 time..
He was talking bla bla bla but then I went to the combine 1 year & if you go on the net right now.. I ran 4.22 in my sweats..

With these ridiculously impressive career stats, Bolt is clearly the safest bet to make here no matter the odds or who is lining up by his side.
Why Tyreek Hill Will Win
Tyreek Hill carries the nickname “Cheetah” for a reason. He is arguably the fastest player in the NFL having topped a speed of 22.64 miles per hour back in 2019.
Tyreek Hill reached a max speed of 22.64 MPH and beat Damien Williams to the goal line on Williams’ 91-yard TD run.

Hill also ran a 40-yard dash time of 4.29 seconds which, even though it is not faster than Bolt’s, is still very impressive.
While Hill’s numbers do not compare to those of Bolt’s it is worth noting that Usain Bolt is 34 years old and is retired from the track having not run a race since 2017.
With that, Hill’s odds cannot be counted out and would offer a great payout if he shows up like he normally does in the NFL on Sundays.
