It’s one of golf’s most eagerly-awaited sports betting events of the year, and this time the Masters betting odds throw up some potential for profit.
Usually, the same names are expected to win golf tournaments time again. But right now, things are a little less predictable. Yet that is not necessarily reflected in the odds, so if you look close enough, you might spot some opportunities.
Masters betting odds
Not surprisingly, world number one Dustin Johnson remains favourite with the bookies. William Hill has him at 9/1 to win the Masters. However, DJ has not finished a tournament higher than eighth since putting on the green jacket at the delayed 2020 Masters event in November.
Then there is the spiralling form of Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy, now down to 16/1 at Mansion Bet. But can you rule out Rory finding his spark at just the right time? He might be a good each-way bet, with many bookies paying down to as low as ninth place.
Justin Thomas is among the favourites, as you would expect. And Jordan Spieth’s well-timed victory at last week’s Valero Texas Open – his first PGA crown in four years – has made him a favourite with many, shortening his odds for Augusta success to 10/1 at 888 Sport.
Then there is the man we have not mentioned yet but who will be the talk of Augusta, at least for the first few days, if not all the way to the end: big-hitting Bryson DeChambeau.
The man who claimed Augusta was a par 67 for him failed to live up to his own hype in November, finishing in tied 34th.
But he seems to have learned to live with the attention he attracts much better since then. DeChambeau could well be pulling on the green jacket on Sunday afternoon – if they can find one that fits him, of course.
