If you don’t remember Tiger Woods rolling back the years and winning a historic 2019 Masters tournament, where were you? It was one of the biggest sporting triumphs that have ever taken place in the great state of Georgia. But that was last year. The Masters is fast approaching in April and there’s sure to be another four days of world-class golf. But who might actually win this time? Can Tiger repeat? Or will someone else get their hands on that green jacket? In this article, we’re going to look at a few options for who might win this year’s tournament in Augusta, GA. Make sure you’ve checked out the best odds with

  1. Tiger Woods

Tiger has already won the Masters 5 times, including last year’s historic win. In fact, he’s won at least one of these in every decade since he started, apart from the current one as we haven’t had a major yet this year. Could he win it? He’s certainly an expert on the Augusta National course. You can get odds of 11.00 on him to win it again this year.

  1. Dustin Johnson

Another big favourite, Dustin Johnson actually hasn’t won the Masters yet. But he does have a number of other big tournament victories and some close finishes here. He isn’t one of the main favourites, perhaps because he hasn’t won here before, but you can still get odds of around 16.00 on DJ to win this year.

  1. Phil Mickelson

While Phil hasn’t had the greatest couple of years, class is permanent, right? And he certainly has form around this course, winning the green jacket three times. However, his last win was in 2010 so that’s why you can get odds of up to 50.00. That could be a great value bet for this year’s Masters if Phil can roll back the years like Tiger did last year. Perhaps he got inspiration from that?

  1. Bubba Watson

Another former champion who has been relatively out of form recently, Bubba Watson. But on his day, he can beat anyone around Augusta National. You can get odds of him to win it this year at 33.00. He’s won it twice before, so who’s to say he can’t again this year?

  1. Rory McIlroy

While Rory didn’t win a major last year, he had one of the best seasons in his career, topping it with a FedEx Championship win. He was the golfer of the season, and if you think he can bring that form into the Masters to win his first green jacket you could get odds of 7.00. He’s actually the bookies’ favorite. But the pressure will be on as this is the only major he needs to complete a career Grand Slam, and he has struggled to do that over the last few years at Augusta.

  1. Colin Morikawa

This one is a bit out of nowhere, but the recent tour newcomer has been having a great first few months. He’s already won on the PGA Tour, and while it’s unlikely he’ll win his first Masters, he’s got the game to do it. If you want an outside bet, you could get massive odds of 75.00 on him to do it.

  1. Gary Woodland

Gary Woodland hasn’t won the Masters, but he is now a major champion and has been having a great few seasons. You can get odds of 60.00 on him to do it in the Masters.

  1. Jordan Spieth

Spieth has been struggling for form recently, but he has been class around Augusta National. You can get odds of 25.00 on him to win here for the second time. Where’s your money this year?
