The 84th edition of the 2020 Masters will take place from Nov. 12-15 from Augusta National Golf Club. The tournament was moved from its annual second weekend in April due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This event will be held without fans in attendance. Tiger Woods is the defending champion of the Masters, which was the fifth of his career. Before that, Patrick Reed and Sergio Garcia were champions.
Let’s take a look at the 2020 Masters Betting Odds:
Bryson DeChambeau +750
The 27-year-old has already finished in the Top 10 twice during the new season in two events. He came away with an eighth-place finish at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open.
He ranks sixth on the money list during the 2020 season with nearly $5 million in winnings. DeChambeau was the longest driver last season, as he averaged more than 344 yards per drive.
DeChambeau certainly knows how to carry himself in big events like this. Do not be surprised if he is in contention from Day 1 to the end. DeChambeau is the betting favorite at +750.
Justin Thomas +900
Another 27-year-old, this former University of Alabama golfer has been exceptional. In the new season, Thomas is 2-of-3 in finishing inside the Top 10.
He came away with a second-place finish at -22 last weekend. In 2020, Thomas was the top money winner on tour, with nearly $7.4 million.
Thomas will need to improve his putting at Augusta. Last season, he was 238th in putting per hole at 1.690. If Thomas can knock down putts, there is no one at Augusta better than him.
Jon Rahm +900
The former Arizona State University star is the youngest of the favorites. Rahm will turn 26 just before the event starts.
Rahm has continually gotten better each season, and 2021 seems to be a massive year for him. So far, he has played in three events, and last weekend was his first top 10.
All golf fans remember the epic showdown with Dustin Johnson late in the season in 2020. Rahm finished seventh in driving yards and 25th in greens in regulation. Those are his strengths.
If he can improve on his accuracy off the tee, and his ability to save shots in the sand, he is another guy that is nearly unbeatable. Rahm is listed at +900 on the BetUS Sportsbook.
Rory Mcllroy +1100
The 31-year-old from Northern Ireland has been there and done this before. McIlroy is looking to grab the first Masters title of his career.
If November is his time, he is going to need to use his ability to kill the ball off the drive but improve his middle game. Greens in regulation were a struggle at times for McIlroy.
McIlroy is coming off a 17th-place finish at the Zozo Championship in Thousand Oaks, Calif. During that, he was at 1.6 greens in regulation putts. That’s already an improvement from last season.
Dustin Johnson +1100
The oldest of the top five favorites is Dustin Johnson. Despite being one of the best golfers in the world for many years, Johnson has never won a Masters.
The 36-year-old turned pro back in 2007 and has had several fun Augusta experiences. This is the year Johnson wants to get that monkey off his back.
Johnson has played in just one event so far during the new season, finishing inside the Top 10. Johnson was third on the money list in 2020, and much of that was with his mix of driving the ball long and straight and knocking down key putts. Johnson is listed at +1100 to win the 2020 Masters.
