The 2015 Masters Tournament will be held from April 6-12 at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. The 79th edition of the prestigious tournament will feature many of the world’s top golfers. The extremely selective field has plenty of stars with some good odds to their names.
Rory McIlroy is the odds-on favorite to win the Mastesr. McIlroy has 13/2 odds to win it all. McIlroy is the world’s top-ranked golfer and is the reigning winner of the PGA Championship and the Open Championship. He finished in eighth in last year’s Masters.
Jason Day is in second with 12/1 betting odds to win. The closest that he has come to winning in the Masters was a second-place finish in 2011.
Bubba Watson is the second-ranked golfer in the PGA right now. He currently has 13/1 odds to win his third Masters. He won last year’s event as well as the 2012 edition of the Masters.
Jordan Spieth has 16/1 golf betting odds to win the tournament. He finished in second place in last year’s event and has never won a major.
Many noteworthy figures are a little further down the list. Phil Mickelson has 28/1 odds while Tiger Woods has 50/1 odds. Jonas Blixt, which tied with Spieth for second place in last year’s Masters, has 110/1 odds to win.
A few legends of the game are on the lineup but they are far down on the odds list. Jose Maria Olazabal, who won the 1994 and 1999 editions of the tournament, has 1000/1 odds to win. Tom Watson and Mike Weir, who have also won the Masters in the past, are also at 1000/1 odds. Watson is 65 years of age and won the Masters in 1977 and 1981 while Weir won his title in 2003. All people who won the Masters in the past are automatically eligible to enter into the tournament.
Amateurs can also be invited but their odds are not listed in any book. For instance, Latin America Amateur Champion Matias Dominguez cannot be found on any sportsbook.
