Men's Shot Put Odds: Ryan Crouser odds

Ryan Crouser is the number one ranked shot put competitor in the world and will be looking to retain his gold medal from the Rio 2016 Olympics, a time where he was also the favourite. Earlier this year, Crouser broke the world outdoor record (pending ratification) with a throw of 23.37m/76-8.25 and now he might just be coming into peak form.

The 28-year-old's throw overtook the world record set by Randy Barnes in 1990, adding 10 inches to that mark. The American also set the world indoor record (pending ratification), throwing 22.82m so now, simply put, he is the greatest shot putter of all time.

Crouser is a nine-time NCAA All-American and has 12 gold medals in his professional career and he is the clear favourite to win Olympic gold for Team USA in Tokyo this year at 1/3. To further add how dominant Crouser is in this sport, he is 1/100 just to claim a medal, which is one of the lowest odds at all of the games.

Men's Shot Put Odds: Joe Kovacs

2016 Olympic silver medalist, Joe Kovacs is another representative of Team USA who will be looking to claim his first Olympic gold medal, but in doing so, he must surpass his teammate.

Kovacs has won gold at the IAAF World Championships on two occasions in his career, 2015 and 2019 and he also finished with a silver medal in 2017 behind New Zealand’s Tomas Walsh. Kovacs' unique technique has cemented him as one of the sports all-time greats as he believes the shot put goes farther when you “whip it rather than push it”.

This technique has evidently served him well in his career and he will now focus on defeating his Team USA colleague, Ryan Crouser. To do so and claim the gold, he is 7/2.

Men's Shot Put Odds: Tom Walsh

Tom Walsh claimed bronze at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in the same year where he won the gold medal at the World Indoor Championships in Portland, United States.

The New Zealander has since won gold medals at the World Championships in London, the World Indoor Championships in Birmingham and the Commonwealth Games in Australia and has established himself as one of the world's very best.

Walsh also has nine consecutive national titles since 2012, making him a force to be reckoned with in the sport for those witnessing from outside of the USA. Walsh threw a personal best of 22.90 m in 2019 at the World Championships in Doha, but will need to improve on this if he wants to beat the likes of Crouser.

Men's Shot Put Odds: Payton Otterdahl

Payton Otterdahl in Team USA’s third shot put athlete competing at the Olympics in Tokyo and it would be nothing short of one of the Olympics' greatest upsets in recent times if each of them weren't to get a medal. In the USA Olympic trials, Otterdahl came third in the shot put and secured his spot in Tokyo for the Olympics, behind, of course, Crouser and Kovacs.

The American registered his lifetime-best throw of 21.92m, narrowly finishing ahead of 2016 Olympian Darrell Hill, 21.89m. This personal best placed Otterdahl in seventh place for shot put throws this year and as an outside contender to claim a medal

Otterdahl will be competing in his first-ever Olympic games after graduating from North Dakota State University and will be hopeful of breaking his personal best and potentially claiming a podium place for Team USA. He is now 12/1 to win gold and 2/1 to win a medal.
