Every tournament at Augusta features literally dozens of players who could have the tournament of their lives and step up and win a green jacket. Every tourney in Augusta also features some humiliating, heartbreaking collapses … sometimes on Thursday, sometimes on Sunday afternoon. For that reason, it’s not always a smart play to bet a single player to win … that is, unless that player is Dustin Johnson. The defending champ is a +900 bet at BetMGM (lay down $100 to win $900), the best odds in the field. And it’s not hard to see why … he’s got a run of Top 5s at Augusta, and he’s also got that green jacket. It’s not quite chalk, but it’s the closest you’ll get under the pines.
The winner generally comes from inside the top 10 players heading into the tourney, and with that in mind, give a close eye to players like Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas, who all sit at +1100. Following his recent run of top-10 finishes, everyone’s in love with Jordan Spieth (+1100), who’s coming off a significant win at the Valero Texas Open. Will we get the Spieth who decimated the course in 2015, or the Spieth who self-destructed in 2016? We won’t know until Sunday afternoon.
One player who ought to come with a warning label: Rory McIlroy (+1800), who’s spent the first part of the year angry at himself, his swing, his swing coach, the universe … a whole raft of targets. McIlroy lacks only this tournament for the career Grand Slam, but he hasn’t won a major since 2014 and remains an iffy proposition this year.
