Fading Viktor Hovland Despite Weaker Field

Viktor Hovland with +1400 odds to win the Charles Schwab Challenge appears as a value play before discovering his poor performances following a top-10 Major finish.

After finishing tied for seventh at this year’s Masters Tournament, he finished tied for 59th at RBC Heritage. Last year, Hovland followed up a tied for fourth finish at The Open Championship with tied for 20th at the FedEx St. Jude Championship.

The fan-favorite from the PGA Championship, Michael Block, earned himself a spot at the Charles Schwab Challenge and has +20000 odds to win the event. Block’s odds at legal betting sites have come down from the 500-1 odds he opened at, likely due to optimistic fans rooting for the Hollywood story to continue.
