Betting the 2017 PGA Tour Masters Golf Tournament

Masters Golf Tournament

The Masters Golf Tournament is one of the four major tournaments played each year in the PGA. The 83-year-old course known as Augusta National is one of the most widely known courses in all of the world. The par 72 is more than 7,400 yards long. Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth hold the course record for a weekend, as they both shot 270, 18 years apart. The 2017 Masters Champion was Danny Willett. Let’s take a look at a few of the top betting odds for the 2017 Masters:

Dustin Johnson 5/1 —

There is not a hotter golfer in the world right now than Dustin Johnson. The 32-year-old is ranked at the top of the rankings. Johnson has played in 7 events this season and already has finished inside the Top 10 5 times. Johnson is one of the best at driving the golf ball, so look for him to be in good spots all weekend. Dustin Johnson is listed at 5/1 odds to win.

Jordan Spieth 7/1 —

The 23-year-old out of Texas is 8th in the rankings and has earned more than 2.5M this season already. Spieth may have a little concern with his most recent performance of missing the cut at the Shell Houston Open. But, Spieth loves the large crowds and loves the course at Augusta. Spieth will play his way to the final day in a good spot to win this event.

Jason Day 20/1 —

Yes, Day has had some injuries, but it’s a little strange to see Jason Day is not considered as one of the favorites in any event. Day has gotten off to a slow start but has worked hard to get back to swinging the club strong. Day has only played in 5 events this season with his best performance coming at Pebble Beach, where he finished 5th. Day is listed at 20/1 odds to win the 2017 Masters.

Phil Mickelson 25/1 —

Lefty is always competing. The 46-year-old still has a couple chances, he feels to take down this Masters. Mickelson has played in 9 events this season, with 3 of them in the Top 10. In the most recent Houston Shell Open, Mickelson made $15, finishing 55m but shot a 70 on the final day. Look for Mickelson to use his putting to put himself in a position this weekend. Mickelson is listed at 25/1.

Danny Willett 100/1 —

Willett has said he loves to play Augusta National. We noticed that a year ago when he took home the final prize. Willett is 29 years old and has been on the tour since 2010. Willett has not been strong this season, but his ability to navigate the course puts him in a position to succeed. Danny Willett is listed at 100/1 odds to win the 2017 Masters at Augusta.

There you have it. Those are a few of our top picks for the 2017 Masters Tournament. These are not the top 5 in terms of odds to win the tournament. Danny Willett is actually not even in the Top 30 in terms of odds. Our pick is Jordan Spieth. The kid has won here before and is masterful in front of huge crowds. You better believe, the folks are going to be swarming to Augusta for the 2017 Masters. Bet Jordan Spieth at 7/1 odds to win.
