Favorites to win the 2023 Masters
Jon Rahm (+1,100)
After a miniature drought came to an end at the Mexico Open last week, the Spaniard is back in the Winner's Circle and looking like his best self once again. Remains a major championship force with Top-8 finishes in all four majors in 2021, including a win at last year's U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.
Finished just T27 at Augusta in 2022 with rounds of 74, 72, 77, and 69, but otherwise has a strong history at the prestigious track. He'll be eager to get back into contention as he chases his first Green Jacket.
Rory McIlroy (+1,100)
Rory McIlroy's chase for the major championship grand slam fell one spot short in 2022, shooting up the board into solo-second after an explosive final-round 64.
Has a great history here at Augusta National, with a plethora of Top-10 finishes to his name, but will 2023 be the year he finally gets over the hump?
Justin Thomas (+1,100)
Justin Thomas's ball-striking dominance can't be overstated, but a win on Tour has eluded him for over a year dating back to his win at the 2021 PLAYERS Championship.
At the 2022 Masters, JT struggled on Thursday (4-over 76) but bounced back with a second-round 67. Played solid over the weekend with two rounds of 72 and sneaked his way into another Top-10 finish.
His game fits well here at Augusta National, and it's a matter of when, not if he wins another major championship. Only will tell if that comes here at the Masters.
Tiger Woods odds to win the 2023 Masters
Tiger Woods showed flashes of quality golf during his well-documented return to Augusta in 2022, but his body ultimately held him back from weekend contention. Rounds of 71 and 74 got him to the weekend where he fell flat with back-to-back rounds of 78.
It's becoming more and more likely he suits up for this year's PGA Championship at Southern Hills. That will give us a better sense of whether he can truly compete in major championships again as he continues to play while dealing with his body's limitations.
In terms of odds, he's available in most spots in the 50/1 range (places him 17th on the board), a mark similar to when he entered Augusta in 2022. Once we see more from him, this line may begin to shift.

Masters winners trends
Note that no pre-tournament betting favorite has won the Masters this decade. Schwartzel was the biggest long shot to win when he surprised the golfing world back in 2011. Most recent winners fall in the +1,000 to +3,000 range.
There also hasn't been a repeat champion at the Masters since Tiger Woods won back-to-back tournaments in 2001 and 2002. Only three golfers since 2000 have won the event twice in three years (or less): Woods, Bubba Watson (2012 and 2014), and Phil Mickelson (2004 and 2006).
Another trend worth noting is the age of recent Masters winners: Before Woods won in 2019 at age 43, the previous 13 winners had all been under the age of 40 at the time they won. Dustin Johnson (36) continued that trend in 2020, as did the 29-year-old Matsuyama.
How to bet on golf
The Masters is the most bet golf event of the year, so naturally, there are many who will be placing their first golf bets on the tournament. If that happens to be you, we've got you covered with our beginner's guide to how to bet on golf.
The most popular way to bet on golf is by simply picking the winner, which is also referred to as an outright. There are plenty of other ways to wager, however, including top finishes, head-to-head matchups, and plenty of props.
