With the 2023 Valero Texas Open behind us, the golf world's attention is now officially turned to The Masters.
There's no more prestigious event in golf, and winning The Masters can solidify a golfer's legacy. For someone like Viktor Hovland, having never posted a top-20 finish at Augusta, improving has to be at the front of his mind.
Here's everything you need to know about Viktor Hovland's Masters odds and history heading into the 2023 event.

Viktor Hovland Masters Prediction 2023
Hovland has been nothing short of consistent in his quest for a green jacket, posting a Round 1 score in the low 70s in each of his three Masters appearances. The 25-year-old has never kept that positive momentum going in Round 2, though, falling away from the leaders and finishing outside the top 20.

There's a lot to like about Hovland's chances of finally breaking that trend, though. He has posted a top-20 finish at four of his last five PGA Tour events and tied for 3rd at The Players Championship in March. Making the cut in 75 of his 85 career tournament appearances is nothing to scoff at, either.
Hovland has showcased reliability across the board as well, ranking eighth in Stroke Gained (SG): Off the Tee, 15th in SG: Tee to Green and 17th in SG: Total. This is a golfer who has gotten so close to a top-20 finish in the past and enters April on a hot streak, so give me a Hovland top-20 finish (+125).
