Golf’s biggest competition swings into play this week with the 2020 Masters Tournament.
There will be no in-person attendance at Augusta National throughout the tournament from Thursday, Nov. 12 to Sunday, Nov. 15. All four rounds will instead be televised.
Now that sports betting is legal, Tennesseans can tap into the action from the comfort of home.
2020 Masters odds
Traditionally scheduled for April, the event was postponed until this fall due to COVID-19.
The 84th Masters might be the last major golf tournament of 2020, but it marks the first wherein Tennesseans have skin in the game.
All four Tennessee sportsbooks are capitalizing on Masters betting, though some books have slightly different odds and offerings than others.
Newcomer Bryson DeChambeau is the sweeping favorite to win the coveted green jacket. The 96-player field includes other top contenders like Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, and Jon Rahm.
Matthew Wolff and Brooks Koepka are two notable value picks.
Current tournament odds at DraftKings are as follows:
Betting options for the Masters
Wagering on the outright tournament winner is far from the only option available.
Matchup bets can provide some of the best return. Rather than selecting an all-around top performer, bettors wager on the favored of two selected golfers, with countless pairings to choose from.
Other popular betting markets include:
- Top 5, top 10, and top 20
- Group winner
- Players to make/miss the cut
Additionally, each sportsbook has a range of prop bets to consider, such as:
- Winning margin
- Winner nationality
- Hole-in-one probability
- Top lefty
- Top former winner
- Leader after each round
You can also be get in on the fun via daily fantasy sports, where players receive a salary cap to build a team of six golfers. Results are then based off the in-round performance of each golfer.
In-Game Masters betting
Fans can directly interact with this year’s tournament through in-game betting.
With an action-packed four days of competition, the picks are as far-reaching as the course is long.
Real-time wagers occur on the outcome of individual shots and subsequent holes.
Bets can be placed on which golfer in a group will have the longest drive or will be closest to the pin per individual hole. One could even try their luck on an up-and-down from the fringe or a 15-foot birdie putt.
The multiverse of venture options in the 2020 Masters Tournament will be equally legendary to this renowned classic.
