  • Early 2020 odds have been posted on who will win a major next season
  • Is there value in betting Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka to lift more hardware?
  • Should you even consider Tiger or Brooks to win multiple majors?

It’s never too early to look ahead at the major championships for the 2020 golf season and find some value that might not be available come next year.

Sportsbooks have posted lines on how many majors Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka will win next season.

Last year, if you’d have bet that they’d both win one major you’d have made yourself some nice cash, as in the first two majors championships  of the year Big Cat snagged the green jacket at the Masters and Brooks Koepka raised his second consecutive Wanamaker trophy at the PGA Championship.

Odds Tiger Woods Wins a Major in 2020

Number of Majors Odds
0 majors -1000
1 or more majors +500
2 or more majors +2500
3 or more majors +20000
All 4 majors +50000

Masters Presents Tiger’s Best Chance For Another Major

It would hardly constitute a hot take by saying that Tiger Woods’ best chance to win a major next season is the one he emerged victorious at in 2019 – The Masters.

Woods slipped into his fifth career green jacket in April and it’s a course he obviously knows everything about, plus Augusta National has by far the fewest amount of golfers teeing it up compared to the other three majors.

The other major venues are at TPC Harding Park (PGA Championship), where Tiger won a dizzying duel with John Daly in a playoff at the 2005 WGC-American Express Championship, Winged Foot for the US Open (missed cut when it was last contested there in 2006), and Royal St. George’s for the Open Championship (T-4th in 2003).

At +500, you’re getting fair value that he will snag his 16th career major title, but don’t get sucked into getting greedy despite the +2500 odds that he wins two. While you’d hardly put it past perhaps the greatest golfer of all time, we’re at the stage in Tiger’s career where he can win and compete every so often but also nurses a lot of nagging injuries.

His best chances to win a major will come at the Masters and PGA Championship.

Pick: Tiger Woods Wins One Major (+500)

Odds Brooks Koepka Wins a Major in 2020

Number of Majors Odds
0 majors -275
1 or more majors +200
2 or more majors +1400
3 or more majors +9000
All 4 majors +50000

Nearly no Value on Betting Brooks to Win One Major

When you’ve won at least one major in each of the past three seasons and four total in your last ten, understandably oddsmakers are going to set the line incredibly low to add to the total in 2020.

Such is life for Brooks Koepka who has two PGA Championship’s and two US Open’s to his credit. He was unconscious in 2019, following up two chips in 2018 with a T-2nd-WIN-2nd-T-4th line in the four majors in 2019.

Since you’re getting next to no value that he will win at least one major, why not double down on Koepka? Bet that he’ll take home one major at +200, then also place a separate wager that he’ll get two at +1400.

He’s been on an insanely ridiculous run but betting three majors or all four is fools gold – don’t do it, because it won’t happen with the depth of the tour being so strong.

Pick: Brooks Koepka Wins Two Majors (+1400)
