As more markets become legal and more options become available, the vast array of bets one can make will be even greater. The Masters at Augusta National is the Super Bowl of golf betting, even more so than the other three majors. The Open Championship has a ton of interest as well, but nothing compares to The Masters here at Augusta. So, I decided to put together 50 golf betting picks and golf prop bets for this week’s tournament. They range from outright winners to number of eagles, head-to-head matchups and so much more. I’ll break out each golf betting pick by category that they fit under so it’s easy to find the bets you want to wager on.
*A Quick FYI: You can track and keep all of your golf betting picks in order for this week’s Masters by using Awesemo’s free OddsShopper tool. There’s a function that keeps all your bets in order and you can track them throughout the duration of the tournament.
I’m going to start off with some first-round bets that include first-round leader and first-round head-to-head matchups.

Golf Betting: 50 Bets For The Masters at Augusta National

- Bryson DeChambeau First-Round Leader (16-1) — Going out early with Rahm, DeChambeau has a chance to scare the entire tournament before half of them even tee off.
- Jon Rahm: First-Round Leader (20-1) — One way to get into DeChambeau’s head is go out and beat him. Rahm’s got the best chance of anyone in the field since he’s grouped with him for the first two days. It’ll be a great dynamic to watch.
- Hideki Matsuyama: First-Round Leader (33-1) — There is a bit of a theme here, but I always like the prospect of someone going out early and posting a number that no one gets to the rest of the day. Matsuyama is second off on the backside and will get the freshest greens Augusta has to offer.
- Xander Schauffele: Top-5 After Round 1 (5.5-1) — Schauffele has had the Sunday blunders, but he’s put himself into contention a bunch since the COVID-19 break. He goes out early with the rest of these guys and should be in a position to post a good number on Thursday.
- Jordan Spieth (-120) vs Gary Woodland Round 1 Head-to-Head — This is about the least amount of trouble I can get in with Spieth this week. Woodland has had to withdraw a couple of times due to an injury, and his form just isn’t there. Spieth and Augusta are a match made in heaven, so I can go one round against Woodland.
- Jordan Spieth First-Round Leader (45-1) — If he’s going to play well, it’ll be in one round and it’ll be the first one. So again, I can’t get in too much trouble here.
- Jason Kokrak First Round Leader (66-1) Over the last month or so, Kokrak has been on fire with his putter. He tees off in the morning wave, and it’s his first time at Augusta. Nothing like a little beginner’s luck to go his way in round 1.
- J.T. Poston (+100) vs. Christiaan Bezuidenhout: Round 1 Head-to-Head — These two are rather similar golfers in a lot of ways. Neither is overly long or accurate off the tee, both can get hot with their irons, and both are great putters. But Poston is in form and Bezuidenhout isn’t.
- Dylan Frittelli (-134) vs. Fred Couples: Round 1 Head-to-Head — It was either this one or Mickelson vs. Ancer. I love Couples, but how long will he be able to go around shooting close to even par here? It may be forever, but Frittelli is a quality golfer that has played well in the last two weeks. That was not so much the case last week, but that just got him here a bit earlier.
- Bryson DeChambeau Total Birdies or Better Round 1: 7+ (5.5-1) — Even if DeChambeau doesn’t play all that well, it just means he’s going to make bogeys. The birdies though, they’ll be there. Sign him up for four on the par 5’s and at least three more throughout the day. If you want to bet two numbers here, six is +450.
- Tiger Woods Total Birdies in Round 1: 4 (+250) — I need a little Tiger sweat to start the day. This seems like a good number for him in round 1.
- Bryson DeChambeau Bogey-Free Round 1 (12-1) — If he’s done his homework and takes apart the course, I can see him making zero bogeys. At 12-1, if he gets through the first hole, I think he can do it.
- Patrick Reed Under 70.5 Round 1 (-134) — The former Masters Champion comes into the week in good form. If the course plays a bit easier this week, I think he should be able to post an opening round in the 60s without too much of an issue.

Golf Prop Bets
- Lowest Round Score Under 64.5 (-136) — If w get softer conditions, we know this course is gettable. I think 64 is in the cards.
- Winning Score Under 273.5 (-150) — The same thing as above, softer conditions should mean easier conditions. I think last year’s score is beatable, and the winner may even be close to the scoring record of -18.
- Bubba Watson Low Score in Round 2 (40-1 Odds) — Going out early Friday morning, Watson will have a chance to post a low one heading into the weekend. At 40-1, about his odds to win the tournament, it seems like a good way to cash in on a low round.
- Francesco Molinari Low Score in Round 2 (80-1 Odds) — If he’s really back in form, then we know he can go low here at Augusta. He’ll be out early Friday morning with a chance to set the pace for day 2.
- Bryson DeChambeau Low 18-Hole Round Score of the Tournament (11-1) — If I cover every way to bet without actually betting him to win, it seems like it’s better odds to do it this way. Plus, I’ll have more chances to win. This is more jargon than seriousness there, but if DeChambeau does break the scoring record, it’s likely he’ll have the low round of the tournament.
- Patrick Cantlay Low 18-Hole Round Score of the Tournament (28-1) — Three 64s were shot last year, all on Saturday. Cantlay was one of them, Webb Simpson and Tony Finau the others. Of those three, Cantlay is in the best form.
- The Tournament To Be Decided by a Playoff: No (-400) — Masters Champions are made on the 18th hole.
- Paul Casey to Miss the Cut (+210) — Totally out of form and with a couple of missed cuts here, Casey isn’t it this week.
- Sungjae Im to Miss the Cut (+185) — While he’s 8-for-8 in the last 11 weeks, he’s been struggling with his game. Last week was no different, having to make a 16-footer just to see all four days.
- Parlay of Nos. 8 & 9 together (+784) — If your book allows it.
- Louis Oosthuizen Top South African (+164) — He is clearly the best of the bunch and priced as such, but there is still value here with many of the rest not in great form or without any history here at Augusta.
- Si Woo Kim +110 Top 3 Asian Player — With back-to-back top-25s here, and a run of good form over the last month or so, I have him ranked slightly behind Im and firmly behind Matsuyama. But none of the others pose a threat other than maybe Byeong Hun An, but his putting is atrocious.
- Si Woo Kim +250 Top South Korean — I’m short Im this week, and this is another way to do it.
- Corey Conners +100 Top Canadian — This is another favorite here, but in my opinion, it is only him vs. Adam Hadwin, and Conners was very close twice in the last month.
- Rory McIlroy -225 Top Irish Player — Shane Lowry has really struggled here at Augusta, and Graeme McDowell vs. Rory McIlroy is more like -400, not -225. I know it’s a bit of juice, but there’s still value here.
- Any Player to Shoot a 62 or Lower in a Round: Yes (20-1) — Soft greens, perfect temperatures and no winds? Sure, why not. If it’s ever going to happen, it’s this year.
- Score of the Cutline: Under 145.5 (+100) — Theme investing is a real thing in the stock market, so we might as well chase it here. Perfect conditions and only the top 50 golfers making the weekend will change up how the cut unfolds. I think we get an even-par cut at 144.
- Number of Players Finishing the Tournament Under Par — Over 34.5 (+100) — If the cut is going to be even par, then you can expect that at least 35 of them will end up shooting at least 1 under on the weekend.
- Bubba Watson Top Lefty (-250) — He is playing against Phil Mickelson, who has looked completely out of sorts when he plays vs the PGA Tour players, Lin Yuxin, who is an amateur from China, and Mike Weir. So really it’s just Watson vs. Mickelson at -250. That seems pretty good considering Watson’s form right now.
- Cameron Champ Top Debutant Player (+900) — Coming in off a top-10 in his last event, and incredibly long off the tee, Champ has a chance at a weekend run here this week.
- J.T. Poston Top Debutant Player (+2000) — Poston won an event not far from Augusta and grew up in North Carolina. Plus, he is one of the best putters on tour.
- Sebastian Munoz Top Debutant Player (+1200) — Completing my top debutant card, I like these three guys to have a chance at beating the field of players here, including Matthew Wolff, Collin Morikawa and Scottie Scheffler.
- Winner To Birdie the 72nd Hole — Yes (+350) — Masters Champions are made on the 72nd hole.
- Hole-In-One in the Tournament — Yes (-175) — For the last couple of years, we’ve had a hole-in-one on Sunday on 16. I’d even go as far to say it’s a trend at this point. If you want to go that route and increase your odds …
- Hole-In-One in the final round — +150
- Hole-In-One on the 16th Hole — +110
Head-to-Head Tournament-Long Matchups
- Patrick Reed -106 over Tyrrell Hatton
- Zach Johnson +110 over Sungjae Im
- Tiger Woods -159 vs. Phil Mickelson
- Parlay these three for +567
- Parlay Reed and Johnson for +309
- Bryson DeChambeau/Dustin Johnson 1-2 Finish (+8000)
- Bryson DeChambeau/Jon Rahm 1-2 Finish (+8000)
- Dustin Johnson/Jon Rahm 1-2 Finish (+8000)
- Dustin Johnson/Bryson DeChambeau 1-2 Finish (+8000)
- Jon Rahm/Bryson DeChambeau 1-2 Finish (+8000)
- Jon Rahm/Dustin Johnson 1-2 Finish (+9500)
Bet $10 on each, it’ll cost you $500, and all you need is Bryson DeChambeau to finish first and either Dustin Johnson or Jon Rahm to finish second, and you’ll already have a profitable week.
