Let’s get started with a look at what went down in H-Town this past weekend, along with their up to date Masters odds.
PGA Betting Analysis – Updated Golf Odds to Win 2020 Masters
2020 Masters General Info
- When: November 12-15, 2020
- Where: Augusta National Golf Club
- Location: Augusta, Georgia
- Field: 96 players
- Prize fund: $11,500,000
Tiger Woods +3500
Woods was once a +2300 pick to win the 2020 Masters, but the odds on the reigning Masters champion have taken a bit of a hit and now the five-time Masters winner is a +3500 pick to repeat. The world No. 32 hasn’t been in action since he missed the cut at the U.S. Open and followed that up with a disappointing T72 in his last outing at the Zozo Championship at the end of October. While Woods definitely isn’t playing well, I don’t think anyone is prepared to count him out as a legitimate contender!
Bryson DeChambeau +800
The 27-year-old DeChambeau was a +1200 pick to win the 2020 Masters in early October, but now, the world No. 6 is the prohibitive favorite with reports saying the powerfully built U.S. Open champion played a ‘jaw-dropping’ practice round at Augusta last week alongside 1988 Masters champion Sandy Lyle. DeChambeau leads the PGA Tour in driving distance (344.4) and ranks first in eagles (28.8) and first in scoring average (66.7) and racked up nine Top-10 finishes, one second place finish and a win in the Rocket Mortgage Classic in 17 events last season. Despite not playing in Houston this past weekend, DeChambeau is looking good as we approach Augusta.
Rory McIlroy +1000
McIlroy wasn’t in the field in Houston this past weekend, but his odds haven’t moved for the Masters win since he opened as a +100 picks over a month ago. The world No. 5 leads the PGA Tour in birdie average (5.33) and ranks fifth in driving average (325.3) and 31st in scoring average (69.8). McIlroy has finished T8, T21 and T17 in his last three outings at the U.S. Open, the CJ Cup and Zozo championship. McIlroy also recorded five consecutive Top 10 finishes at Augusta from 2014-2018 and will look to improve on his solid T21 finish a year ago.
Jon Rahm +1000
While the world No. 2 didn’t suit up in Houston, the red-hot Rahm saw his odds improve from +1100 to +1000 over the last week.
Rahm finished T23 at the U.S. Open in September, T17 in the CJ Cup and T2 in the Zozo Championship in his last three events. Rahm, who has finished T27, fourth and T9 at Augusta in each of the last three years will undeniably have a shot to claim his first green jacket.
Dustin Johnson +1200
Just one week ago, the world No. 1 was the same +1100 pick to win the Masters that he opened as well over a month ago. However, I’m a bit stunned that Johnson isn’t the prohibitive favorite heading into Augusta after watching Johnson finish T2 in his first event since a positive coronavirus result kept him out of the Zozo Championship three weeks ago. Johnson ranks third in driving distance (328.8) and second in scoring average (66.8) and finished second in the 2019 Masters. Despite never winning in Augusta, Johnson has finished an encouraging T10 in 2018, T4 in 2016 and T6 in 2015. Now, with his odds at +1200, Johnson has finished first or second in five of his last six starts and looks like a ‘must-bet’ kind of pick at Augusta as a value-packed +1200.
Justin Thomas +1200 and Xander Schauffele +1400
Despite not playing in Houston, the 27-year-old Thomas and 27-year-old Schauffele are still the same, +1200 and +1400 picks to win the 2020 Masters they were a month ago. Thomas, the world No. 3, finished T8 in the U.S. Open, T12 in the CJ Cup and T2 in the Zozo Championships in his last three events while Schauffele, the world No. 7, finished fifth in the U.S. Open, second in the CJ Cup and T17 at the Zozo Championship in his last three tournaments.
Brooks Koepka +1800
Koepka finished an encouraging T5 in Houston on Sunday, but is the same +1800 pick to win in Augusta that he was three weeks ago. Still, the supremely gifted four-time major winner finished T2 second in last year’s Masters and T11 in 2017 and will likely challenge for the outright win.
At this time a week ago, the world No. 17 was a value-packed +3000 to win the 2020 Masters, but now, he’s an even more valuable +3500 pick to win at Augusta National. Finau finished T8 in the U.S. Open, T11 in the Zozo Championship and T24 in Houston this past weekend and ranks a stupendous fourth in scoring average (68.8). More importantly, Finau finished T10 at Augusta two years ago and an impressive fifth last year. Talk about a player that is offering great value – and Finau is among the very top contenders!
Hideki Matsuyama +4000
The last player I want to highlight is the 28-year-old Hideki Matsuyama. The world No. 20. ranks 21st in scoring average (69.5) and 43rd in birdie average (4.44) and finished an encouraging T21 in the CJ Cup, T17 in the U.S. Open and a stellar T2 with Dustin Johnson in Houston this past weekend. More importantly, Matsuyama has had some solid success at Augusta in finishing fifth in 2015, T7 in 2016, T11 in 2017, 19th in 2018 and T32 a year ago. Now, a value-packed +400 pick to win the 2020 Masters, I like Matsuyama’s chances this coming weekend.
