The Favorites

At odds of +900 or 9/1 in fraction format, a $100 bet on Rory McIlroy to win the US Masters would profit $900.

That might seem like a low percentage for the betting favorite, however you have to consider the size of the talent pool he’s up against.

Tiger Woods’ Final Round

Brooks Koepka and Tiger Woods are listed at +1000, bet $100 to win $1000. Brooks Koepka originally opened as the betting favorite in the early Masters odds back in late 2019. Can Tiger keep the momentum in 2020? After a historic comeback to win the 2019 US Masters.
