Two days and most of two rounds have been completed as of Friday night at Augusta, but with the weather issues from Thursday, there’s still a portion of the second round left for Saturday morning. Four players are currently tied for the lead at 9-under, and while there isn’t likely to be a ton of change at the top when the second round concludes, there’s plenty of drama to be found near the cut line. Below you’ll find an up-to-date breakdown of the odds and some numbers showing how DraftKings Sportsbook bettors have been handling The Masters to this point.

Outright Winner (Friday Night)
Outright Winner (Before Play Started)
Bryson DeChambeau remains the most popular bet amongst DraftKings Sportsbook bettors, but his margin has dwindled as he’s struggled to keep his head above water through two days. Bryson, predictably, hasn’t gotten much in-tournament betting attention and his weekend is in serious jeopardy as he’s managed to shoot just 1-over through 12 holes. An eagle putt will be upcoming on the par-5 13th when play resumes Saturday morning and a make there would go a long way in securing a Top 50 slot and a subsequent third-round tee time. Nonetheless, Bryson is 10 shots off the lead at the moment, so his outlook to win The Masters isn’t promising.
One of the biggest gainers in betting volume over the past two days is Tiger Woods, who stands at 4-under through 10 second-round holes. Tiger’s odds to win his second straight Masters have moved from +4500 to +2200 and while there are plenty of great golfers ahead of him on the leaderboard, Tiger is squarely in contention heading into Saturday.
Just like Bryson, Jon Rahm was set up in prime position when play was halted. Rahm essentially has a gimme birdie to move into a tie for the lead, and with five more second-round holes to go after that he’s earned the status of Friday night favorite. Rahm is narrowly ahead of Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, both of whom have played exceptionally well through two full rounds, and there are plenty of other good golfers still in contention, as well. Abraham Ancer is easily the biggest surprise at the moment, climbing from 125 to 1 before the tournament to 22 to 1 now. Ancer is tied for the lead at -9, with Johnson, Thomas and also Cameron Smith.
