The Masters 2021 Betting Props Preview
The first major of the PGA season tees off this week and brings with it enough Masters props to fill a green jacket made for Bryson DeChambeau.
At Bovada Sportsbook, they have Masters props on everything from the first-round leader to the nationality of the tournament winner.
The basic first-round leader prop is loaded up with the usual suspects such as defending champion Dustin Johnson at +1600, Jordan Spieth, also at +1600, and DeChambeau at +1800. It’s rare for the eventual tournament winner to lead after the first round, but Johnson did just that last year, sitting tied atop the leaderboard with Paul Casey and Dylan Frittelli.
Oddsmaker lists hole-in-one prop as minus-money option
You’ll also find the usual golf tournament props for hole-in-one, a playoff and the winning margin. On the hole-in-one prop at Bovada, the Yes option that someone will record an ace is favored at -175.
On whether there will be a playoff, No is favored at -670 and Yes is +400. The last playoff at Augusta National was in 2017 between Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose. That was the first playoff since 2013.
For the winning margin, a playoff is listed at +400, one stroke at +250, two stokes at +350, three strokes at +550 and four strokes or more at +225. Last year, Johnson won by five strokes, while the previous two Masters were decided by only one stroke.
OVER/UNDER for lowest Masters round set at 65.5
Another interesting prop at Bovada is the lowest recorded round during this year’s Masters. The OVER/UNDER on the prop was set at 65.5 with the UNDER favored at -130 and the OVER at even money. The course record at Augusta is 63, which was accomplished by Nick Price in 1986 and repeated by Greg Norman in 1996.
One prop that could pay off well if Johnson or Spieth wins another green jacket is is a wager on whether a previous Masters winner will win again this week. Although the field is littered with former winners, Yes is a +300 underdog on the prop.
Think you can pick the top American player at this year’s Masters? If Johnson tops all Americans in the field again, he’d pay out at +550. A few other notables include DeChambeau at +700, Spieth at +700, Justin Thomas at +700 and Collin Morikawa at +1800.
You can also bet on the top Asian, Australian, British/Irish, continental European and Canadian players. The respective favorites are Sungjae Im (+130), Cameron Smith (+200), Rory McIlroy (+275), Jon Rahm (even) and Corey Conners (-125).
