With just ten days to go until the Masters kicks off at Augusta, the bets are rolling in with punters putting up their cash and predicting who’ll take home the famous green jacket.
After the golf season came to a grinding halt in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, the tournament is being held seven months behind schedule this year in November. With the tournament taking place at such a different time, it’ll be interesting to see how great an impact the reschedule has, and punters have been factoring the change in conditions when placing their bets.
At the moment, Bryson DeChambeau is currently the tournament favourite just two weeks out, with the American standing at just 9-1 to seal his first Masters win. The American was a huge 29-1 just a few weeks ago, but his win at the US Open back in September saw his odds slashed, with bets flooding in on the back of his excellent performance at Winged Foot.
Despite his poor form this year, Rory McIlroy’s odds are still surprisingly short at 11-1, with Spaniard Jon Rahm joining him as the tournament’s joint second-favourite on the same price. World number 1 Dustin Johnson is the third-favourite, while Bubba Watson is a long 28-1 to take home his hattrick of green jackets after picking up wins in 2012 and 2014.
Last year’s winner Tiger Woods is as large as 38-1 with bookies and pundits alike unconvinced by his chances of reclaiming his title following a poor run of results this year. His Masters victory last year was his first major championship win in 11 years, but the chances of him repeating that feat appear unlikely, and the odds being offered reflect that.
The tournament is set to begin on Thursday November 12 and will conclude three days later. The odds could change in the lead up top the tournament, so keep and eye on the Oddschecker website to find a list of the best prices.
