We have just finished up football season in the United States, but that means that the Masters will be here soon.
The Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club is always one of the biggest sporting events of the year. Not only is it a major golf tournament, but it is also played at one of the most important golf courses in the world.
Augusta National is also extremely challenging, and it takes a certain kind of golfer to be able to navigate the course for four days. This event also brings plenty of great betting opportunities, including betting on the eventual champion.
Here is a look at the current betting odds to win the Masters and a discussion about some of the best golfers.Jump to
No Surprises at the Top
- Jon Rahm +850
- Jordan Spieth +1100
- Justin Thomas +1200
- Collin Morikawa +1200
- Dustin Johnson +1200
- Rory McIlroy +1400
- Xander Schauffele +1600
- Bryson DeChambeau +1600
- Brooks Koepka +1900
Even the most casual golf fan could probably have predicted what nine golfers would enter Augusta National as the betting favorites. Jon Rahm is the clear betting favorite at +850 after having one of the most amazing golf seasons for anyone in a long time.
Following Rahm are some of the best players in the world and also players that have had at least some success at Augusta National. Jordan Spieth is one player on this list that seems to live this golf course, but he is also haunted by some bad memories.
All nine of the golfers listed above are going to generate plenty of wagers.
The Mighty Have Fallen
There used to be a time when Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson were the two betting favorites at the Masters every single year. Both of those players have still either won or been in contention in recent years, but they don’t have favorable betting odds this time around.
Tiger Woods is actually listed at +4200, but betting on him would be a pretty big risk since he might not even suit up. Woods has yet to play a full golf tournament since suffering a bad car crash a year ago.
Mickelson is all the way down at +10000, and it’s hard to see him contending many more times in his career. If “Lefty” is around heading into the weekend, then he will put pressure on other golfers.
Always Surprises at the Masters
