The Masters betting tips: Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson or Rory McIlroy – who is the favourite and the best bet for glory at Augusta?


The Masters will take centre-stage once again this week and the famous Augusta National course is set to pay host to one of the most open championships in years.

A host of top names will be battling it out for the Green Jacket but who will emerge victorious on Sunday evening? Here’s who the bookies think will win it…

Bryson DeChambeau could be the man to beat at the Masters

The Masters: Top six player odds  

Winner odds from Betfair

Bryson DeChambeau: 17/2

While he may divide opinions, DeChambeau’s work ethic and attention to detail is second to none and he’ll certainly look to take Augusta apart this week.

The reigning US Open champion finished a lowly T34 in November but did shoot an impressive third round and will be desperate to show his best this time around.

DeChambeau won the Arnold Palmer Invitational last month, finished tied third at The Players and is now ranked fifth in the world.

If he can get to grips with the nuances of Augusta National, his power could make him hard to beat.

Dustin Johnson: 9/1

DJ was utterly superb in November, winning at a canter with a record score of 20-under-par.

Johnson has since won the Saudi International in early February but hasn’t shown his best in recent weeks.

Tiger Woods was the last player to defend his Masters title, winning in 2001 and 2002.

Johnson will have brilliant recent memories to call upon around the famous course and could well be donning another Green Jacket come Sunday.

Jordan Spieth: 10/1

The comeback kid could write a quite remarkable story at Augusta this week.

Spieth’s career had looked as good as over in recent years but he’s put in the hard yards to claw his way back to the top.

The 2015 Masters champion won at last week’s Valero Texas Open to confirm he is back to his very best and has looked in fine form for several weeks.

Can he win in back-to-back weekends following all he’s been through recently? 

Justin Thomas: 10/1

Thomas put a tough few months behind him when he secured a superb win at The Players last month.

He also finished an impressive fourth at the Masters in November.

For as good as he is, Thomas still only has one major title to his name, a fact he’ll be eager to change as soon as possible.

Winning The Players and then the Masters would be a huge feat but JT definitely has the game to do just that.

11= Jon Rahm - 28/1

Can Jon Rahm claim Masters glory this year?

Jon Rahm: 11/1

A maiden Major win for the mercurial Spaniard is surely a matter of when and not if.

Rahm has not played his best golf in recent months but is a superb talent and well capable of putting together a performance to win this week.

He has finished inside the top ten in his last three Masters tournaments and loves the test that Augusta throws up.

He’ll be many people’s favourite but can he finally take the big step into the winner’s circle. 

Rory McIlroy: 16/1

It’s ten years since McIlroy endured his infamous implosion at Augusta.

Leading by four ahead of the final round, the Northern Irishman shot a final round of 80 to tumble down the leaderboard in agonising fashion.

McIlroy has not won for some time and hasn’t shown much form going into this weekend.

He started well at both the WGC at The Concession and at the Arnold Palmer but failed to covert and will now be looking to show the world he remains a top, top player.

The Masters: Selected player odds

Xander Schauffele: 22/1

Has seven top tens from just 14 Majors played. Still waiting to really join the big time but has the game to the beat the best on his day.

Lee Westwood: 28/1

Has been in brilliant form for several months with a string of superb displays. Had a father-son trip to Augusta recently to prepare.

Cameron Smith: 30/1

The Australian pushed Johnson harder than any other player last year and enjoys it around Augusta.

Tyrrell Hatton: 40/1

Often frustrating but equally often superb. England’s last Masters winner was Danny Willett in 2016 and Hatton could certainly be on contention this week.

Sergio Garcia: 45/1

Another former champion, Garcia has impressed recently with good showings at The Players and the WGC Match Play. Always one to watch.
