Can Tiger Woods defend his title? Or will a new Masters champion be crowned at Augusta next Monday?

We look at the best betting options for the 2020 US Masters, which includes outright betting and golf exotic bets.


U.S. Masters Golf Predictions

2020 US Masters Best Bet – Jon Rahm @ $11

Jon Rahm is looking to better his 2018 performance which saw the Spaniard finish fourth behind Patrick Reed.

The 25-year-old has been in solid form this season and his most recent tournament came at the Zozo Championship where he finished second.

He has already won the 2020 Memorial Tournament this year and although yet to win a major tournament, it’s only a matter of time.

Punters are getting value odds for Jon Rahm and although the Masters is tough to win, he has the game to get around Augusta without making errors.

He only needs to hit his fair share of fairways and make some putts, which Rahm knows how to do.

2020 US Masters Value – Brooks Koepka @ $15

Punters should always include the American on their ticket and he looked good at the Houston Open last week.

The multiple major winner finished fifth and he closed with a final round of –5. That was a good display and punters know he saves his best golf for the big occasions.

There is no bigger occasion than The Masters and Koepka is keen to get back in the discussion as being the best in the world.

His recent results, excluding the Houston Open, have been marred by injury. However, he looks healthy now and $15 for Brooks Koepka can’t be overlooked.

2020 US Masters Long Shot – Bubba Watson @ $29

Bubba Watson is getting back to his best and the 2012 Masters champion could give punters something to cheer for.

The 42-year-old isn’t getting any younger, but his recent results speak for themselves. He finished seventh at the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek before finishing fourth at the Zozo Championship.

Watson consistently finishes high up the order at The Masters and having that experience puts him ahead of many other players.

Bookmakers are respecting his chances, but the $29 represents a fair amount of value.

US Masters Leader After Round 1 – Jason Day @ $31

Jason Day knows Augusta National like the back of his hand, so he could make a fast start to proceedings on Friday morning.

The Australian is coming off solid results and despite battling a crippling back injury, Day is a live chance this week.

His past performances at The Masters puts him on high alert and we like the $31 for Day to be leading after Day 1.

2020 US Masters Top 10 Betting Predictions

Along with the selections we have already discussed, there are three golfers you need on your Top 10 ticket.

Bryson DeChambeau is looking to back up his win at the 2020 US Open with another major victory. The American will try to muscle his way around Augusta, which isn’t always the right tactic.

However, his pure strength allows him to cut corners and bring in supreme confidence. He is the current favourite to win the tournament and punters get $1.91 for a Top 10 finish.

Xander Schauffele is a player that is always around the mark, but struggles to get over the line. However, for Top 10 players, that won’t be a problem.

The American has shown great consistency throughout his career and he deserves to win a major title. We’re not sure if he will win, but getting $2.37 for a Top 10 finish should please punters.

Our final Top 10 player is Justin Rose at $5. The Englishman was pushed close in 2017 when Sergio Garcia won in a playoff, but his recent form has been solid.

Rose won’t blow the opposition off the course, but he is steady and he has experience winning on the big stage.

Stick with him and take the value odds.

2020 US Masters Top Australian Player – Jason Day

It comes as no surprise that we are backing Jason Day to best represent the Australians.

He has five golfers to beat, which includes former Masters champ Adam Scott, Cameron Smith, Marc Leishman and Lukas Michel.

Beating Adam Scott will be tough, given his record at Augusta, but Day is trending in the right direction.

We believe the Queenslander will start the tournament well and put himself in a position to win. Punters are getting $2.40 for Day to hold off his countrymen.
