Prop bets via BetOnline and Bookmaker.
Who will win the Masters?
- Johnson/Spieth/McIlroy +200, Field -260
Even getting the three favorites the odds suggest there is a 72.2% chance someone other than Johnson, McIlroy or Spieth win the tournament
Will any player shoot 62 or lower in a round?
- Yes +1200
- No -2500
A 62 or lower would be a Masters record. Nick Price (1986) and Greg Norman (1996) share the record for lowest 18 hole round at 63.
Will there be a hole-in-one?
- Yes -150
- No +120
There have been 27 hole-in-ones during the Masters. Three golfs got an ace last year but none did it in 2014 or 2015.
Will there be an albatross? (double eagle or -3 on one hole)
- Yes +1600
- No -4000
The Masters started in 1934 and in the tournament’s 83-year history there have been just four double eagles. Hence why “No” is such a big favorite.
Will any player win wire-to-wire? (lead or share lead after every round)
- Yes +1000
- No -2000
There have only been five golfers to win the Masters leading wire-to-wire. The last golfer to accomplish the feat was Jordan Spieth in 2015.
Will Dustin Johnson win wire-to-wire?
- Yes +3300
- No -10000
DJ is the favorite at this year’s event and the World’s No. 1 golfer. However, the odds imply there is just a 2.9% chance that Wayne Gretzky’s son-in-law leads from start to finish.
Will there be a playoff?
- Yes +300
- No -400
16 times viewers have enjoyed free golf as the Masters was decided by a playoff. Tiger Woods last won at the Masters in 2005 in a playoff and 3 of the last eight tournaments have been decided with extra holes.
Will the Winner of the Par 3 Contest Win the Masters?
- Yes +700
- No -2800
No winner of the Par 3 contest has gone on to win the Masters in the same year.
