The 84th edition of The Masters will tee off at Augusta National on Thursday night AEDT and will see the world’s best golfers seek their place in the history books, and a coveted Green Jacket.
Not since the outbreak of WWII has a Masters champion been forced to wait this long to defend his title, and there is no doubt that Tiger Woods will need to be at his brilliant best to overcome a talented 2020 field that includes five Australians.
US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau is on track to tee off our favourite in The Masters betting ($9), and is joined on the top lines by the likes of John Rahm ($10), Dustin Johnson ($10) and Justin Thomas ($12).
You can find a preview of the tournament and all of our 2020 Masters tips below, including market leaders and best roughies below.
Bryson DeChambeau ($9)
Bryson DeChambeau has been a mainstay in the world’s top thirty players for a few seasons now, but there is no denying that he has gone to another level in 2020, and he is a fitting occupant of the top line of The Masters betting.
He was utterly dominant on his way to winning the US Open in September, and has interestingly competed at just one tournament in the wake; finishing in a tie for eighth at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
Throughout the last two months, DeChambeau has instead focused his efforts on improving what is already an enormous long game, and plenty of hype understandably surrounds his impending performance in Georgia.
Jon Rahm ($10)
Jon Rahm is also enjoying a memorable season on tour and is faced with another terrific opportunity to record his first major win at The Masters 2020.
The twenty-six-year-old Spaniard won the Memorial Tournament in July to officially claim the world’s number one ranking for the first time, and while losing the position to Justin Thomas just a fortnight later, went on to win the BMW Championship after an outstanding playoff against Dustin Johnson.
Rahm enters The Masters full of confidence off the back of a T2 at the Zozo Championship @ Sherwood, and there is no doubt that his second-to-none short game will be the key to his success at Augusta.
Dustin Johnson ($10)
There simply hasn’t been a player that has maintained strong and consistent form like Dustin Johnson has for the last four or five years, and this could very well represent his best opportunity at a Green Jacket to date.
DJ has typically been in the thick of things more often than not this season, carding a career-low round at the Travelers Championship in June and adding wins at both the Northern Trust Open and the Tour Championship.
Justin’s record at The Masters is excellent without having recorded an elusive win, and I really can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again this weekend.
Justin Thomas ($12)
Thomas has enjoyed another competitive year on tour and will be seeking to improve on a career best T12 at The Masters this week.
Thomas’ 2020 record reads well and includes a particularly impressive win at the St. Jude Invitational at TPC Southwind in August; a performance that saw him overcome a four-shot deficit on the final day of the tournament to claim victory.
He deserves to occupy a position towards the top of The Masters betting, and I think that $12 is about the right price.
Brooks Koepka ($19)
This is the longest price that Brooks Koepka has featured in majors betting for some time, and he represents value at $19.
While his season has been plagued with hip complaints and the like, Koepka has steadily returned to form at his recent appearances and enters The Masters off a credible performance for T5 at the Houston Open.
Should be find himself in the mix on the final day, there probably isn’t a player on tour you’d rather be with.
Tony Finau ($26)
Speaking of value, I genuinely believe the best of it lies with Tony Finau in The Masters betting this year, with the world number 17 currently rated a $26 chance.
There is absolutely no denying Finau’s talent and ability, the issue that he has faced has been his apparently inability to cope when the pressure goes on – something that materialised again in Houston last week, when he shaped as a winning chance before ultimately going to water in the final round.
It does remain true that Finau is a threat nearly every time that he tees off, and I’d hate to miss the price if The Masters 2020 turns out to be his tournament.
Adam Scott ($41)
Five Australians will take their place in The Masters field this year, but I think that 2013 champion Adam Scott represents our best chance of winning.
Having returned to winning form at the Genesis Open in February this year, Scott has continued to improve with each round since resuming, and he has tended to keep his best major performances for Augusta National.
In what shapes as a particularly open year in The Masters from a betting perspective, Scott could prove to be over the odds.
Back Jon Rahm to win @ $10
Back Dustin Johnson to win @ $10
Back Tony Finau to win @ $26
Back Adam Scott to win @ $41
