The PGA Tour is now back to normal in 2022, and that means that The Masters will be back and played under normal circumstances. The 2022 Masters will begin on Thursday, April 7, and will wrap up on Sunday, April 10.
Augusta National will once again be the host for this tournament, just as it is every year. This is arguably one of the most challenging golf courses in the world, and it provides an excellent test to golfers every year.
Here is a look at the current golf betting odds and a discussion on which players that can make a run.Jump to
Loaded Group of Favorites
There isn’t one golfer that has jumped out as a massive favorite to win this week at Augusta, but there is a loaded group of players that could make a run. You are going to see some former Masters champions with good odds to win this week, but you’ll also see some young players on the rise.
Jon Rahm is currently the betting favorite at +1000, but that’s only slightly ahead of the rest of the pack. Here is a look at that list that would be considered the favorites:
- Jon Rahm +1000
- Jordan Spieth +1300
- Justin Thomas +1400
- Cameron Smith +1400
- Collin Morikawa +1600
- Dustin Johnson +1600
- Scottie Scheffler +1600
- Rory McIlroy +1800
- Brooks Koepka +1800
- Viktor Hovland +1800
Value in Contenders
Since there is no clear favorite this week at Augusta, you are actually going to find value when betting on the favorites. Like always, though, taking a look a bit down the line might actually be a better bet to make.
Here are some of the odds for the contenders that you will likely find on the leaderboard this weekend:
- Xander Schauffele +2200
- Patrick Cantlay +2200
- Bryson DeChambeau +3000
- Will Zalatoris +3000
- Hideki Matsuyama +3500
- Sam Burns +3500
- Shane Lowry +4000
Matsuyama is actually the defending champion at The Masters, and the odds for him to repeat aren’t as good. If he is able to recreate the magic this week at Augusta National, then he could be a solid golfer to wager on.
The four players above him have all had plenty of success at Augusta National as well, and they will be in the mix for the “Green Jacket.”
One Big Underdog to Watch
The Masters is usually a tournament that is won by one of the best golfers in the world, but that doesn’t always have to be the case. Underdogs seem to make a run every single year, even if they don’t end up on top at the end.
This year the biggest underdog to watch might be someone that has won this tournament five times in the past. Tiger Woods currently has odds set at +5000 to win at Augusta National, but this is a course that he always seems to dominate.
Woods is still a game-time decision on whether or not he will play, but you can’t count him out if he does.
