2020 Masters Betting: Early Odds Offer Interesting Reading
The early odds offered on the massive golf event are well worth viewing as we look ahead to the April tournament that always provides a great deal of betting interest, even outside true golfing enthusiasts.
The Masters conjures up a million golfing memories with the hallowed Augusta National course being the very pinnacle of the game and those who get to wear the coveted Green Jacket forever etched in the history of the game.
Last time around Tiger Woods pulled off an emotional triumph, it was his fifth win, and was amazingly his first major championship win in over a decade and a victory that left many in tears, with the legendary American golfer coming back from a long period of strife both on and off the greens.
He won by a single shot in 2019 and is the second favorite at present, with leading US Sportsbook MyBookie, where he is currently set at +900 alongside Brooks Koepka who is the current world number one who is still chasing his first Masters win.
Leading the betting is Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy, priced at +800, and there’s no doubt that it will be a tough mountain to climb to overcome any of these front three in the betting for the first major of the year.
McIlory is desperate to pick up a Masters win, doing so will give him the ‘Grand Slam’ of titles in all four majors, with the 30-year-old having won the PGA Championship, the US Open and the British Open previously, and he has altered his schedule so he plays a week before the big one this year, the first time he’s done that since 2014.
Masters Odds from MyBookie
Rory McIlroy +800
Tiger Woods +900
Brooks Koepka +900
Dustin Johnson +1200
Jon Rahm +1200
Justin Thomas +1600
Justin Rose +1600
All in all it promises to be one of the most keenly fought Masters tournaments in a number of years and you can expect the ‘usual suspects’ to be challenged by a traditional group of surprise additions that tend to fight their way out of the pack over the course of what is surely one of the pillars of the sports betting calendar.
