The odds to win the Men's Skeet Shooting Finals are especially competitive and, as such, offer some pretty decent payout odds

Vincent Hancock comes in as the favorite representing the USA and he pays slightly more than EVEN odds ($105 for every $100 bet or $10.50 for every $10 bet).  Hancock has won the gold medal in the men's skeet at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing and 2012 Summer Olympics in London. He is the first skeet shooter to repeat as the Olympic champion.

That will to win was tested when the pandemic hit.

“Adding that extra year [to training] was kind of crazy,” Hancock told the local Fort Worth NBC affiliate ahead of this summer's Olympics. “We prepare ourselves mentally and physically for that four-year cycle and I have always lived my life since I was 12 years old in four-year cycles. Having to add the extra year and not knowing if it’s going to happen or when its going to happen was hard.”

Assuming Hancock does not take the gold, the remaining field pays out anywhere from $500 to $700 on every $100 bet.

Federico Gil has seen his odds slashed to 5-1 from 7-1 most recently.  The Argentine sports shooterfinished in 27th place at the 2016 Summer Olympics.

“Shooting is a sport that requires many years of training and competition to reach the elite. It starts very young, like all Olympic sports, and requires a certain maturation, because you see that between 30 and 37 or 38 years old they achieve their best score. That’s why I’ve known them for 20 years ”, he says.

“It is a sport that requires the same characteristics as golf: high level of physical and mental coordination. And temperance and maturity come with the years ”, he argues.

An interesting factoid about Gil.  Despite being the World Number 2, he has no sponsors.

“I do not have any Argentine company as a sponsor. I wrote to those with drinks and clothes and they didn’t even answer mail. I took it on when I qualified for Rio 2016 and I no longer write to anyone. If I want clothes, I have to save and buy them. I would love to have more sponsors, but my mother follows me on social networks, ”he quipped.

“I take scholarship support very seriously. It is a huge weight to represent the country, because I do it with the money of all those who pay taxes: from one who pays for water to the super company that pays Profits”, Gil added.

Jesper Hansen pays out $600 for every $100 bet should he go on to win the gold.

Representing Denmark, he finished 26th place at the 2012 Summer Olympics but, in 2013, won the skeet shooting world championship.
