US Masters – Odds and Predictions
12 November 2020
With the Masters being flipped to November this year, we get a yearly iconic event, just roughly seven months later than what we are accustomed to. While I admittedly have not been dialed in on golf this year, I did want to share some thoughts on who the best bets might be, and additionally who might bring some long shot magic.
Let’s start with the top five of the list (full list below).
Bryson DeChambeau 8-1
Dustin Johnson 9-1
Jon Rahm 11-1
Justin Thomas 12-1
Rory McIlroy 14-1
No one quite jumps off the page like Dustin Johnson. I still believe him to have the most dominant game of anyone on tour when he is playing well, and that has been the case recently.
In six starts since August, he has not finished worse than sixth in any tournament and in those six starts he has two wins, including the Tour Championship. Also included in those six starts are three runner up finishes, including the PGA Championship and BMW Championship. Last year’s runner up finish at the Masters was a step towards earning his second major. He has a US Open win and has finished second in all three other Majors. Johnson is the best bet of the short odds players.

The next best bet after Johnson would be Jon Rahm, at slightly longer odds. He has also played high end golf as of late, and will do well tee to green, which is historically where the Masters is won.
Rahm has also found success of late, notching two wins in his last nine starts and four top six finishes in his last six starts. There is no science or statistics behind this part, but there’s probably no one other than Rahm in the field I want my money on if it comes down to a clutch putt.
Moving further down the list, we see both two time champion Bubba Watson and 2018 winner Patrick Reed both listed at 28-1. While we cannot project either as better options than the shorter odds players in front of them, there is reason for optimism. The previous course output cannot be questioned for either, and both are playing their best golf of the year recently. There is value on the return on both of these former champs.
