Can Dustin Johnson go back-to-back at Augusta National? Betting odds for the 2021 Masters Tournament say he’s got a good chance to add another green jacket to his closet.
The 36-year-old won the 2020 Masters just a few months ago, finishing five strokes ahead of Sungjae Im and Cameron Smith. The quick turnaround has done nothing to dampen his excitement ahead of one of golf’s major tournaments.
Johnson is hardly a lock to win the tournament, though, as he will be battling some of the PGA Tour’s best players for the top spot on the Masters leaderboard.
Here’s everything you need to know to bet on the 2021 Masters, including the latest tournament odds.
Masters Tournament odds 2021
Johnson (+950) is the favorite to win the 2021 Masters, according to odds from DraftKings. That means a $100 bet on Johnson would result in a $950 payout.
Bryson DeChambeau (+1100), Jordan Spieth (+1150), Justin Thomas (+1150) and Jon Rahm (+1200) round out the top five on DraftKings’ odds list.
Masters expert picks
The experts at Fantasy Alarm suggest Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas as good value picks, but the best bet might be Brooks Koepka.
Koepka has improved his finish each year he’s teed it up at Augusta National. He finished 33rd in his debut back in 2015, then 21st in ’16 before just missing the top 10 in ’17 and last year tied for second with Xander Schauffele. He’s worked himself back into championship shape over the past month with a 28th at the CJ Cup and a fifth at the Houston Open last weekend.
We all know the type of player he is and his ability to turn it on when needed. Koepka plays better with a chip on his shoulder, and he absolutely hates that everyone is fawning all over Bryson DeChambeau after his historic win at the U.S. Open. He’s the type that feeds off people writing him off, and he’ll be out for blood this weekend.
