Sportsbooks View Tiger Woods As Long Shot To Win Back-To-Back Masters

Posted on November 10, 2020 - Last Updated on March 20, 2024

The final major of 2020 is here.

The Masters in November certainly wasn’t what anyone was expecting heading into the year, but that’s the reality this time around.

Instead of golf’s big show taking place in April, the tournament will now run from Nov. 12-15.

COVID-19 may have pushed everything back a few months, but Augusta National Golf Club will still be hosting the event.

The best of the best will be playing in the tournament, but there will be a few breaks from tradition.

No fans will be in attendance this year because of the pandemic, and the Par 3 Contest is also off the table.

2020 Masters betting 0dds

Tiger Woods made his return to glory at the 2019 Masters.

The golf legend has five Masters wins under his belt and is hungry to add one more to that total.

Despite winning the tournament last year, Woods is hardly the favorite to come out on top this time around. DraftKings has him 17 spots behind the favorite at +4,500 odds to win.

Most of Indiana’s online betting apps have Bryson DeChambeau as the favorite. DeChambeau recently won the the US Open back in September.

Here’s a quick look at the odds for some of the top golfers from Indiana sportsbooks:

SportsbookBryson DeChambeauDustin JohnsonJon RahmJustin ThomasXander Schauffele
William Hill+800+900+1,000+1,200+1,400
theScore Bet+700+800+700+1,200+1,200

Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka are two other big names that are expected to contend. FanDuel has the two at +1,400 and +1,700 to come out on top of the tournament.

FanDuel Birdie Bonus

One of the more unique promotions for the Masters comes from FanDuel Sportsbook.

The “Birdie Bonus” is giving golf bettors extra cash for the Masters.

If you place a pre-match wager of $50 of more on a golfer, FanDuel will hand you money for every birdie and eagle your golfer snags during the tournament.

Typically, these kinds of promotions have a set amount of money that you can earn, but FanDuel is mixing that up this time.

Every birdie or eagle your golfer has will let you spin the “Birdie Bonus Wheel” on FanDuel’s website or app.

The wheel basically resembles Wheel of Fortune, with amounts from $1 to $5 listed on the wheel’s spaces.

Every birdie or eagle will give you a chance to spin the wheel again, so there’s plenty of opportunities to win some extra money.

PointsBet bonus Masters betting

PointsBet is taking away some of the betting risk with its latest promotion.

The sportsbook is hoping to attract golf bettors by offering insurance on Masters bets.

If you bet on a golfer to win the Masters but they only come in the top 10, you’ll get your money back from PointsBet. That refund is good for bets up to $25.

PointsBet also has another promotion floating around out there for the green jacket hunt.

That promo is a bonus bet, except this one is for betting on specific holes. If your bet misses, PointsBet will refund you up to $25.

So for example, if you bet on Dustin Johnson to finish with the fewest strokes on hole three, but that doesn’t end up happening, then you’ll be due a refund.

DraftKings new user Masters promotions

DraftKings is also getting in on all the golf fun this week.

Indiana’s most popular sportsbook has a new odds boost out there for new customers. The deal is centered around Bryson DeChambeau.

DeChambeau is one of the favorites to win the entire tournament, so his odds to make the cut for weekend play were astronomical.

He was originally listed at -1,115 to make the cut, but DraftKings has shot that up to +100.

That’s an incredible deal for something that oddsmakers basically consider to be a lock.

There’s a max bet of $50 for the promotion, so sign up for DraftKings to take advantage of the deal.

The sportsbook also has a brand new Masters promo out there that ties in with college football.

In a nutshell, DraftKings wants you to bet on Saturday’s slate of college football games.

If you bet $20 or more on any of Saturday’s games, then you’ll receive a free $10 bet to use on the Masters during Sunday’s action.

The promo is also only available to new users, so if you already have an account, you’re out of luck this time.

DraftKings and prop bets for the Masters

No surprise here, but DraftKings has the largest selection of props available by far for the Masters.

The sportsbook has all sorts of unique betting options for the tournament that you can check out.

DraftKings has props available for individual golfers. For example, you can bet on how many birdies Brooks Koepka will shoot in round one.

Betting on your favorite golfer to have a bogey-free round is also on the table.

DraftKings has always loved pumping out nationality props, and that’s no different for the Masters.

There are all kinds of specific bets available for golfers from the following regions:

  • USA
  • Europe
  • England
  • Australia
  • Spain
  • South Africa
  • Asia
  • Canada
  • Korea

That list doesn’t even cover the full slate. Those regions break down into even more specific betting options such as Continental Europe or Britain and Ireland.

Those are only a few of the possible prop bets that DraftKings is offering, so check out their website or app for the full list of options.

New deals and betting options could come out closer to the tournament’s start, so check in with your favorite sportsbook to stay up-to-date.
