2023 Masters Favorites & Top Contenders

Masters Pre-Tournament Odds
There’s two types of odds in golf that players can wager in, including pre-tournament odds and live odds during the tournament. Specifically, Pre-Tournament Masters odds can provide great value to bettors on the eventual winner if they place a bet before competition begins.
Take previous champion Hideki Matsuyama’s winning round as an example. His 2021 Masters odds were as long as +4500 before competition began, and shortened to +1900 by Saturday before going in to the final round as a -118 favorite.
By betting on Masters Pre-Tournament odds, you’ll get more bang for your buck as a bettor rather than waiting and seeing who plays well during the opening two rounds of competition.
Live Betting at the Masters
Conversely, if your pre-Masters bets fail to make the cut or aren’t playing well, there’s plenty of success that can be had live betting at the Masters.
While the odds are constantly shifting during play, at the conclusion of each round is a perfect time to look up different stats and betting trends to make smart, in-play Masters bets.
Checking on the live leaderboard for score, data such as strokes gained in driving, approach and putting are also usual harbingers of success at Augusta National. Live betting a player who’s poised to get up the leaderboard on Saturday or Sunday early in the Tournament can lead to a big payoff for bettors.
Masters Betting: Best Sports Betting Promos
While there’s plenty of bets to make in traditional Masters odds, as well as Masters props – many sportsbooks offer special sports betting promos for the Masters.

Masters Betting Strategy
When betting on the Masters, your strategy shouldn’t stray too far from the norm of how to bet on golf.
Course history and past performance does tend to come in to play more at Augusta National than other majors and tournaments, as institutional knowledge is paramount to success at the Masters.
Knowing that, it can be beneficial to bet on former champions and players that have a history of success in the Masters to either win outright, finish within the top five, ten or 20 or even something as simple as making the cut.
Another one of the Masters betting trends to note is that it is near impossible to win the event in back-to-back years as it’s only been accomplished three times: Jack Nicklaus in 1965-66, Nick Faldo in 1989-90 and Tiger Woods in 2001-02.
OWGR Top Ranked Golfers
While most of the top players in the Official World Golf ranking also dot the top of the 2022 Masters odds, there are some discrepancies.
The OWGR formula is complex, and can lead to certain players being within the top ten or fifteen in the rankings – but outside even the top 20 in Masters odds as well as the odds for other golf majors.
When first checking odds in January, Billy Horschel was hanging onto his 18th-place OWGR ranking following his missed cut at Waialae, but was already just barely inside the Top 50 of odds for the 2023 Masters.
Masters Winners Odds History
One of the great Masters traditions is allowing all past champions to compete, regardless of age and current skill level. Because of that, you’ll see some of these former champions who are in their 50s and 60s listed at odds of 100-1 or longer.
A total of nineteen former Masters champions have been given odds ahead of the 2023 tournament, including five-time winner Tiger Woods (+5443), Patrick Reed (+6971), Bubba Watson (+9000), and Phil Mickelson (+16167). Even former champs from the ’80s and ’90s such as Fred Couples (+108333), Vijay Singh (+150000), and Larry Mize (+290000) are getting odds, albeit long ones, to win another green jacket.
Masters Winner by Year: Past 10
As mentioned above, Dustin Johnson has an intriguing price at +1600 after his triumph in 2020. Jordan Spieth also has the second shortest odds at +1000 as he tries to repeat at Augusta National for the first time since his win in 2015.
One wildcard to watch could be Patrick Reed who current has Masters odds of +4000. After a miserable February he had a strong showing at the PLAYERS Championship, finishing T26.
Masters Tournament FAQs
What are the current odds for the Masters tournament?
It varies slightly from sportsbook to sportsbook, but the clear top-three favorites are Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm, and Rory McIlroy.
Who is the favorite to win the Masters?
Most sportsbooks have world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler slightly ahead of Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm in the 2023 Masters odds. After that trio, there is a steep drop-off to the likes of Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.
Can I bet on multiple golfers to win the Masters?
Yes, bettors can wager on as many golfers as they like. Just please don't parlay two separate golfers to win the Green Jacket.
What is the difference between pre-tournament odds and in-play odds?
The pre-tournament odds are only available before the first golfer tees off on Thursday morning. Typically, there is a little less juice on pre-tournament futures than in-play odds, but these days the difference is negligible. Some sportsbooks will open new types of wagers once the tournament begins, such as odds to birdie/par/bogey the next hole.
How do I place a bet on the Masters?
The first thing you need to do is register at an online sportsbook that is legal in your state/province. Then all you need to do is navigate to the golf section of your preferred site and the Masters odds will be front and center. The layout is different at every sportsbook but it's all fairly intuitive.
Can I bet on things other than the outright winner, such as top-5 finish or head-to-head matchups?
Absolutely. The list of Masters props seems to grow each and every year. Top-three finish, top-five, top-ten, make the cut, miss the cut, first-round leader: these are just a handful of the wager types that bettors can make on the 2023 Masters.
Are there any special promotions or bonuses for betting on the Masters?
Yes, sites like DraftKings and Bet365 are offering special boosts on Tiger Woods, while other sportsbooks will give new customers bonus bets to use after their first deposit.
