In just about one week’s time, the 2019 Masters will open at Augusta National Golf Club. For those interested in placing a wager on the iconic tournament, the current Masters odds are pretty much what you’re going get.
The top-five contenders, according to the oddsmakers in Las Vegas, consist of the usual suspects. It should come as no surprise that Rory McIlroy is the current betting favorite, followed by Dustin Johnson, Tiger Woods, Brooks Keopka, and Justin Rose.
Beyond that, you will find several elite golfers coming in at +1600 or higher going into the tournament’s opening round.
With that being said, here is a look at the current odds to win the 2019 Masters.
Odds courtesy of Sportsbook.ag as of April 2, 2018.
Justin Rose (+1400)
Rose came extremely close to winning the 2017 Masters (he should have won if we’re being completely honest), and he is perhaps the most steady player on the PGA Tour today.
I am a firm believer that Rose will win a green jacket before all is said and done. Will 2019 be the year? Only time will tell. But I would be surprised if he finishes outside of the top-10 this year.
Brooks Koepka (+1400)
When it comes to Brooks Koepka, you can go ahead and throw recent form out the window. The 2018 PGA Tour Player of the Year has developed into a dominant force on golf’s biggest stages, and will be looking to win his third major championship in the last calendar year.
Anytime Koepka is in the field in a major he is a threat to win. End of story.
Tiger Woods (+1200)
Woods’ odds will always be skewed by ‘Tiger Mania,’ but there is also no denying that the four-time Masters champion has been playing really well in 2019 (he is coming off a matchplay victory over Rory McIlroy after all).
Bottom line: if Woods has success with his driver and putter, he will be in contention on Sunday.
Dustin Johnson (+1000)
Johnson is currently the No. 1 ranked player in the Official World Golf rankings for good reason. He has finished in the top 10 or better in each of his last four tournaments, including a win at the WGC-Mexico in late February.
Very few players (if any) in the world have Johnson’s type of talent. His best finish in eight appearances at Augusta was a T-4, and it’s no secret that the 2016 PGA Tour Player of the Year desperately wants to add a green jacket to his wardrobe.
If Johnson can put together four consistent rounds and avoid any major mistakes, he will likely be in contention on Sunday afternoon.
Rory McIlroy (+800)
McIlroy has been on an absolute tear in 2019. In fact, the only other player in the world who has been in the same stratosphere as McIlroy this year is Dustin Johnson.
Here is a rundown on all of the 29-year-old Irishman’s finishes since the start of 2019:
- Sentry Tournament of Champions: T4
- Farmers Insurance Open: T5
- Genesis Open: T4
- WGC-Mexico Championship: 2
- Arnold Palmer Invitational: T6
- The Players Championship: 1
Yes, you read that correctly. McIlroy’s worst finish in 2019 is a tie for sixth place.
When you combine his current level of play, and his well-known desire to notch a win at Augusta (which would complete his career major grand slam), it will be hard to bet against Rory at the 2019 Masters.
