Last year’s winner, Dustin Johnson, is the favorite to repeat at +800. Jordan Spieth, who won last week at TPC San Antonio, and Bryson DeChambeau follow at +850.
In addition to betting on the overall winner, golf bettors can choose from a number of Masters golfer prop bets. Here’s a look at some of best.
Will There Be A Hole In One in the Final Round?
There is plenty of value on the “Yes” bet at +125 here. Since the Masters began, there has been at least one hole-in-one in 22 different Masters events. There has been one in each of the last four tournaments.
In 2019, both Justin Thomas and DeChambeau recorded aces on the par-3, 173-yard 16th hole at Augusta in the final round of play. Hole No. 16 has yielded 22 holes-in-one, the most in Masters history. Half of those aces have come in the past 10 tournaments.
At plus money, that makes this a wager worth taking.
Will There Be an Albatross Scored at the 2021 Masters?
The albatross – the term for a double-eagle – is extremely rare especially in major golf events. In fact, it has only happened 18 times in the four majors. It has happened four times at the Masters. The most recent was recorded by Louis Oosthuizen in 2012.
Going three-under on a par-5 (which is the most common form of albatross) does not happen all that often. In addition to Oosthuizen’s, the others were recorded in 1935, 1967, and 1994. It’s doubtful it happens in 2021, which is why there is value on the “No” bet at +1200.
