Nobody can forget Tiger’s historic win in Augusta last year, but who might win this year’s golf tournament? While many of the favorites will include names like the aforementioned Tiger along with other big names like Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy, what about the outsiders?

The great thing about golf is that someone from the pack can have a great week and bring home the prize. This means you can make money with massive odds. If you want to know who a few options are for an outside value bet, then you’re in the right place. We’re going to look at some lesser-favored names for the green jacket in Augusta this year in this article.

Since the loosening of gambling laws in the states, there are now more options than ever to place a bet on The Masters or any other golf tournament, that means more people are getting interested. But everyone tends to bet on those shorter-odds favorites. What about the long-shots? That’s what golf is all about sometimes, and you can place some of these bets with Melbet. Let’s have a look at who might be an outsider for the title this year:

  1. Colin Morikawa

You can get massive odds on tour newcomer Morikawa to win the Masters this year. He’s already won in his short time on the PGA Tour, and while it might be unlikely to think he’ll win on his first attempt at the Masters, it could happen.

Colin Morikawa odds: 75.00

  1. Matthew Wolff

Another newcomer to the tour who’s already won a PGA tournament is fellow recent NCAA golfer Matthew Wolff. Just like Morikawa, experts are predicting big things for Wolff. It might be too soon for him to win the Masters, but you can get great odds if you think he’s going to do it.

Matthew Wolff odds: 125.00

  1. Viktor Hovland

Hovland played alongside Wolff and Morikawa in the recent NCAA Championships. While he hasn’t won a professional tournament like the other two, some say he’s the best of the three. He’s also had a few top finishes in major tournaments recently.

  1. Lee Westwood

Lee Westwood has arguably been out in the wilderness in recent years, but he came back to form with a high finish at the British Open in 2019. He’s already had a few good finishes at the Masters. Could it finally be his year this year?

Lee Westwood odds: 80.00

  1. Graeme McDowell

McDowell hasn’t always had the best of times at Augusta, but he’s recently returned to form and is a former major champion. You can get massive odds on him winning the green jacket this year.

Graeme McDowell odds: 275.00

  1. Jim Furyk

Jim Furky might be coming towards the end of his career, but he’s had a great one. And they say class is permanent. If you think this former major champion could win his first Masters, you could win a lot of money.

Jim Furyk odds: 250.00

  1. Bubba Watson

Bubba has arguably been out of form for the last few years, but he has already won the Masters twice. You won’t get huge odds on him doing it again, because he is so good at Augusta. But it could be the bet for you.

Bubba Watson odds: 33.00

  1. Danny Willet

You can get massive odds on Willet winning here. These odds are surprising because he had a real return to form towards the end of last season and he has already won the Masters. This could be the bet you’ve been looking for.

Danny Willet odds: 100.00

Where’s your money going this year for the Masters? It looks set to potentially be one of the best tournaments in recent years, although it’ll have to go some to beat last year’s finish.
