Tiger Woods Opens As 2020 Masters Favorite At +800 Odds

Written By Chops on April 15, 2019 - Last Updated on June 17, 2022

After suffering a bloodbath of losses this weekend by not listing Tiger Woods as the favorite, sportsbooks are course correcting for The Masters in 2020.

Tiger is the early 2020 Masters favorite in Nevada and New Jersey. The Westgate Superbook was the first to post 2020 Masters futures and listed Tiger at 8/1 (+800). FanDuel Sportsbook has Woods listed at +850, and FOX Bet is aligned with the Westgate at +800.

The 2020 Masters Tournament will begin on Thursday, April 9, 2020.

There was an error with the table post type.

Back in his heyday, Woods was often priced at 2/1 or 3/1 at majors. Now 43 years old (he’ll turn 44 in December), Woods won’t drift into that absurdly low range again. While +800 (8/1) may be a little out of line with his actual chances, it’s a fairer price given the amount of public action he’s going to take.

Looking ahead to 2019 Majors

The PGA Championship at Bethpage Black now follows the Masters. Woods is the PGA favorite +850 on FanDuel, but is second favorite (+1000) to Dustin Johnson (+900) on BetStars. Woods won the US Open at Bethpage in 2002.

  • The 2019 US Open at Pebble Beach sees Woods and Johnson as co-favorites at +950 on FanDuel. BetStars has Johnson favored at +1000 followed by Rory McIlroy and Woods at +1400.
  • For the 2019 British Open at Dunluce in Northern Ireland, Woods is the favorite at +950 on FanDuel, followed by McIlroy (+1100) and Johnson (+1200). On BetStars, Woods is the heavier favorite at +800. McIlroy (+1000) and Johnson (+1200) again follow.
