The Masters Betting News
Masters Odds and Betting
The Masters Tournament is one of the four majors in Men's Professional Golf and is played every year. Those who've won the Masters have a standing invitation to come back and compete each year for the rest of their lives. Aside from the lifelong tee time at one of the most prestigious and exclusive golf clubs, first-place receives over $2 Million in prize money and gets automatic qualification into the other three majors (U.S. Open, PGA Championship, The Open Championship) as well as THE PLAYERS Championship for the next five years.
Since 1934, the Masters Tournament has provided some of the greatest moments in golf. Jack Nicklaus winning at 46 yrs old in 1986, Tiger Woods' 15th major and fifth Masters win defying the odds after returning from injury and the first golfer from Japan in Hideki Matsuyama to win the Masters are memories the players and fans will never forget. The prestige and the accolades that come with a win are top-notch, which is why it's one of the most popular golf betting events in the world to bet on annually.
You might be wondering how the Masters Odds work? A lot of factors go into how the odds work, but the simplest explanation is how good the golfers are currently playing and/or how they play at The Masters every year. When considering golfers to bet on, look to those who have course experience at Augusta National, especially on and around these difficult greens. Other than Patrick Reed in 2018, the past 23 champions played the previous Masters and made the cut.
