PGA TOUR Golf Odds: Betting Insights for The Masters on DraftKings Sportsbook

Matt Meiselman breaks down the DraftKings Sportsbook betting splits for the Masters, including the most bet on golfers and other markets.

Masters Week is finally here, bringing us a unique Fall event for a tournament which had always taken place in the Spring. 2020 has obviously been strange and much of the sports calendar has been shuffled, but Augusta National Golf Club is set to host its annual golf tournament nonetheless. The field consists of 92 of the world’s best players and many of them are strong contenders, with 12 golfers having odds of 30-to-1 or better. Bryson DeChambeau leads the way at +750, with Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm closely following at +850 and +1000, respectively.

Outright Winner

Bryson DeChambeau is clearly the most hyped up golfer heading into the Masters and it goes without saying that he’d be this week’s most popular bet. DeChambeau also recently signed his deal with DraftKings, so there was bound to be particular interest from DraftKings bettors, specifically. He’s been one of the best performers on the PGA Tour of late, most notably with his US Open win just two months ago, so the form is there for DeChambeau, too. Having said all that, the 10% bet share and 20% handle are not as overwhelming as you might expect, and it speaks to the depth and quality of the rest of the golfers in the field.


First Round Leader

DeChambeau is at the top of first round leader betting, but it’s by a very slim margin with Jordan Spieth showing up at around the same numbers. Spieth is somewhat of a strange choice here given that he’s struggled recently, with three missed cuts in his last five events and no top 30 finishes. The value in Speith, or at least the perceived value, is that he’s extremely inconsistent and has much more of a chance to pay off a one-round bet than a full-tournament bet. This sentiment is reflected in the odds, as Spieth is 45-to-1 to win the first round and 70-to-1 to win the whole thing.


Top 10

The top 10 market features a lot of the same names, with most of the favorites making the list of most popular top 10 bets. There are a few notable names not listed here like Tyrell Hatton and Jason Day, but for the most part there’s an overarching assumption that most of the contenders are pretty consistent players. The odds really tell the story here, as the lines on top 10 finishes for DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm are all right around even money.
