The 2020 Masters Betting Guide
The Masters – A Tradition Unlike Any Other
The rescheduled 2020 Masters will be a record wagering event. Despite no fans or spectators at Augusta National due to the continue coronavirus crisis, and the event being held on a college and pro football weekend for the first time ever, the coverage and interest remains robust.
“There has been good, steady action and a spike in betting this week,” DraftKings director of sportsbook operations Johnny Avelllo told me this week.
Interesting to note that the top-9 players in the betting odds have never won the Masters. Tiger Woods is not among the lowest odds to win this year’s 2020 Masters after capturing his fifth green jacket in a memorable moment last year. Most bettors feel a breakthrough is likely for these other players who are supported with the most bets at DraftKings Sportsbook.
- Bryson DeChambeau (+800)
- Dustin Johnson (+900)
- Jon Rahm (+1050)
- Justin Thomas (+1250)
- Brooks Koepka (+1700)
- Tiger Woods (+4500) – Masters winner
- Rory McIlroy (+1300)
- Xander Schauffele (+1600)
- Tyrrell Hatton (+2500)
- Patrick Cantlay (+2800)
- Jason Day (+3000)
- Hideki Matsuyama (+3000)
- Patrick Reed (+3000) – Masters winner
Odds to win vary and adjust at different sportsbook, and the handle determines the win percentages. Here is a look at William Hill’s Masters betting activity.
The best golfers in the world will be vying for the green jacket starting on Thursday.

MASTERS PROPS AND MATCHUPS
Two years ago, I crushed the tournament match-ups with nine winners in the 2018 Masters. With legal sports betting now in 18 states and more than six others with legislation approved for sports betting, there are more sportsbooks offering a greater number of props, match-ups and top finishing position odds in addition to the outright win market.
Those are the focus when trying to make money, but adding some futures bets is fun for a small portion of your betting portfolio at The Masters. That includes on the adjusted odds after each round.
I’ll add some tournament match-ups and players of interest to finish high and potentially win the 2020 Masters in another post prior to the tournament.
