At long last, the PGA Tour returns to Augusta National Golf Club this week for the 2020 Masters Tournament, now the final major and third-to-last full-status tournament of 2020. The event was postponed from mid-April due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A field of 94 will compete for the green jacket. Below, we look at the 2020 Masters betting odds, and make our PGA Tour picks and predictions to win.
The 2021 Masters will return to its usual spot on the Tour schedule and is set for April 8-11.
2020 Masters Tournament betting picks – Favorite
Patrick Cantlay (+2200)
Cantlay will enter his third career Masters as a professional off a win at the Zozo Championship against a start-studded, 78-man field. He tied for ninth last year following a missed cut in 2018. He was also the low amateur in 2012, finishing T-47.
His recent victory pushed him to ninth in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings. He’s now a three-time PGA Tour winner since 2017 with one other playoff loss. He excels around the greens and averaged 0.93 Strokes Gained: Putting per round at the Zozo, according to Data Golf.
2020 Masters Tournament betting picks – Contender
Sungjae Im (+8000)
Im is one of 22 Masters invitees who made the cut at the Vivint Houston Open, but he finished just T-50 at 3 over. While it’s an uninspiring performance just a week out, he was able to average 0.80 SG: Putting for the tournament.
His odds are inflated from his usual standard as he’ll be making his pro debut at Augusta National and no one has won here in his first visit since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979. Im got his first PGA Tour win at the Honda Classic earlier this year and is a great value bet.
2020 Masters Tournament betting picks – Long shot
Adam Hadwin (+30000)
Hadwin is the right combination of experience and current abilities in this long-shot tier. He has played the Masters twice, finishing T-36 in 2017 and T-24 in 2018, and he enters the week ranked 33rd in the Golfweek rankings.
He has just one career PGA Tour win to date – the 2017 Valspar Championship – but he has long been great around and on the greens. His best finish since the Tour’s mid-June restart was a T-4 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic after recording two runner-ups and three other tops 10 finishes in 2019.
