According to the latest Golf odds from online sportsbook BetOnline, Dustin Johnson is the betting favorite to win the 2021 Masters (Bet $100, win $650). DJ won last years Masters, which was only in November due to the pandemic. This will certainly give him the added confidence with the short turnaround, playing at Augusta again.
DJ is followed by Rory McIlroy, who is a +900 betting favorite to win his first green jacket. Wagering a $100 could net you $900 on Rory winning.
Dechambeau, Rahm, and JT are all listed at +1000. Meaning that any $100 bet could profit $1000 on either of these golfers winning The Masters.
Justin Thomas could well be Dustin Johnson’s biggest threat at the Masters. JT usually plays up his ability on Augusta and has been keeping fresh at recent tours so far since then.
Bryson Dechambeau uniqueness shines at every PGA Tour. He won the US Open in 2020, but has never looked his best playing at Augusta. Dechambeau is certainly a gamble at +1000, not one I will be banking on just yet.
John Rahm is keeping warm this season after a 5th place finish at the Genesis Open, he also finished within the top ten at last year’s Masters. Could it finally be Rahm’s time to shine at Augusta? He’s certainly a worthy player for any top ten bets and fantasy DraftKings pools out there.
Brooks Koepka started off 2021 with a win at the Phoenix Open, finishing 6 under par at TPC Scottsdale. Koepka was runner up in 2019, behind Tiger Woods infamous return season. At odds of +1200, you can bet $100 to net $1200 on Brooks Koepka winning his first Masters.

Alternative Picks To Win The Masters
My favorite Masters pick from outside the oddsmaker’s top ten is Patrick Reed. I’m always a fan of Reed as a live underdog. Another former Masters winner that knows the course well enough to replicate his 2018 win. Reed has odds of +2500, a real contender for this year’s tournament.
Jordan Spieth won the Masters in 2015. At only 27 years of age, Spieth has finished runner-up in a number of smaller PGA tours this year, including 4th at the Phoenix Open and 3rd at AT&T Pebble Beach. Spieth’s chances of winning his second green jacket are +3300, the same as betting odds as Tiger Woods.
Webb Simpson might have shocked some with his two PGA wins in 2020. However, if you’re a true golf fanatic – Simpson has the real pedigree and could really shake up the top ten favorites at this year’s Masters.
Coming off a close loss at the 2021 Genesis Open, Tony Finau has shown us he is in form and could be a major underdog pick at the Masters. At odds of +3400, you can bet $10 to win $340 on Finau.
