The 2020 Masters odds from BetOnline show that Tiger Woods is again a force that shouldn’t be ignored. We’ll make a case for Woods below and will also highlight one other golfer on the board who could be worth a look.

Woods’ Value Won’t Get Better

Woods was absolutely dialed in Sunday at the Masters and gave everyone the impression he wasn’t only capable of winning that major but more in the future.

Assuming Woods builds on this win, you won’t be able to bet him at +900 when next year’s Masters rolls around.

With three more majors on the calendar in 2019 including a date at Pebble Beach where he’s had success in the past, it’s definitely possible he enters next year’s Masters with more than one major under his belt from this year. Assuming Woods builds on this win, you won’t be able to bet him at +900 when next year’s Masters rolls around.

Even if Woods isn’t able to capture another major this year, he would still be one of the favorites heading to Augusta in 2020. He’s now won the tournament five times which is second all-time to Jack Nicklaus, who won six green jackets. Without any more success this year, it will still be tough to find a book to offer you +900 next year once the buzz starts to build.

Bettors handed Vegas a historic loss with Woods’ win this year, and to take full advantage next year you should make the bet earlier, rather than later.

Is Koepka the Biggest Threat to Woods in 2020?

Brooks Koepka has three majors under his belt, winning this US Open in 2017 and 2018, as well as last year’s PGA Championship. In the first major this year, he finished tied for second, one shot behind Woods, and seemed for most of the back nine to be the biggest threat. He bombs the ball off the tee which is a big advantage at Augusta, where he can post birdies with relative ease on the par 5’s.

Expect Koepka to be in contention again next year, and much like Woods, the price you can get him at today is likely the best you’ll see.
