PGA Masters Betting

Soon after Jon Rahm won the last event in 2023, Vegas odds-makers released futures odds for the 2024 PGA Masters. Online golf betting sites make other betting options – three-ball matchups, individual rounds, etc – available closer to the start of the event.

Augusta has several uphill holes and plays to a par 72 and 7,435 yards. The grain of the fairways points in the direction of the tee boxes. Various trees surround this classic course, and each hole gets its name from a flower, plant, or tree. The bentgrass greens are lightning-fast, featuring run-off areas, slopes, and multiple tiers.

Some interesting betting trends have emerged in the last twenty years of this prestigious tournament. It seems that this course favors players under 40. Apart from Tiger Woods who won the Masters in 2019 at the age of 43, the previous 11 Masters winners were younger than 40. Dustin Johnson was 36 when he became the winner in 2020 and Matsuyama was 29 when he got his first Masters victory in 2021.
