2019 Masters Betting Odds & Preview

2019 Masters Betting Odds & Preview

With the completion of The Players Championship last weekend, the next major upcoming tournament in golf is the Masters. With Rory McIlroy’s win at The Players, he’s the favorite to take the Masters. Legendary Tiger Woods isn’t too far behind despite recent struggles. Check out the table below to see the odds for each golfer to take the Masters this April!

Rory McIlroy

In a close finish on Sunday, Rory McIlroy narrowly edged out Jim Furyk to secure a win at the 2019 Players Championship. McIlroy found himself just a shot behind Furyk with two holes left to play. Knowing he needed clutch, precise play to pull out a victory, Rory delivered when he needed it most. McIlroy racked up consecutive birdies on the 17th and 18th holes to grab a one-stroke lead of Furyk, giving Rory the win.

McIlroy has been red-hot to start 2019, with top 6 finishes in every tournament he’s played in. He finished 4th at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, 5th at the Farmers Insurance Open, 4th at the Genesis Open, 2nd at the WGC-Mexico Championship, 6th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and 1st in The Players Championship over the weekend. The 12-year professional Irish golfer now finds himself in first place in money winnings and FedEx Cup points.

With Rory’s impressive collection of performances this year, none better than his victory at The Players, he’s comfortably placed himself as the favorite to win the Masters coming up in April. With McIlroy in first place at +800, Dustin Johnson is next at +1000, followed by Justin Rose at +1200, familiar name Tiger Woods in fourth at +1400, and Justin Thomas at +1600 to round off the top 5.

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods played an excellent year of golf in 2018, but hasn’t found much success in tournaments this year. At The Players this weekend, Woods finished in just 30th place coming out 6 strokes below par. This pales in comparison to Rory McIlroy’s first place finish at 16 strokes below par.

Woods started The Players off well, but quickly ended up with a quadruple-bogey on the 17th hole of the first round to finish with a score of 70, greatly hurting his overall standing. Woods followed up the first round with finishes of 71 and 72 in the next two rounds. Woods did finish out strong though, ending with a 69 in the final round.

For Woods his final round was crucial for securing his standing heading towards the Masters. His finish did drop him to 13th on the World Golf Ranking, but he likely would’ve fell further had he not finished The Players with a strong round. Building off the final round at The Players, Woods feels confident heading towards April, especially considering he’s playing through a neck strain.

For Woods, the 2019 season has not resulted in the same success as last year. Woods finished 17th at the Hero World Challenge, 20th at the Farmers Insurance Open, 15th at the Genesis Open, 10th at the WGC-Mexico Championship, and recently 30th at The Players. Despite late finishes, Woods is still a strong choice for the 2019 Masters, a tournament he’s won 4 times in his career (although last time he did it was in 2005).

Odds Table for the 2019 Masters

LIsted below is a table of all the odds for each golfer to take the 2019 Masters. Rory is the favorite, but he has some close competition like Tiger in the top 5. His finish at The Players will likely move him up in the World Rankings, but currently he is 6th.

Dustin Johnson is ranked 1st in the World, while Justin Rose is ranked 2nd and Justin Thomas is ranked 4th, explaining why they’re also in the top 5 with odds to win. The Masters is a major tournament and anyone can win this year, but McIlroy has performed the best so far and recently especially. Here are your betting odds for the 2019 Masters:
