Conditions May Level The Fairways For Players
The 2020 US Masters odds on Bryson Dechambeau have once again raised the debate over power-hitters. Those who can blast their way through a course, using brute force more than intricate shots. He and those like him are likely to do well at Augusta. Bovada give him just 8/1 to win the coveted Green Jacker. However, those planning to take advantage of US gambling laws to bet on the 2020 US Masters should keep at least one eye on the weather this weekend.
Tropical Storm Eta will not, the meteorologists tell us, travel over Augusta. Models now predict it to swing west at the end of the week. However, whilst this does mean it will not have a catastrophic effect on the weather, and effect it will most certainly have. Conditions on an already tricky and challenging course are likely to be difficult. This means that whilst people have rolled their eyes at the 2020 US Masters odds Bryson Dechambeau gets, it may not go all his way this weekend.
His power-hitting style might not fare well in blustery, wet conditions. Forecasts see Saturday and Sunday being particularly tough. Augusta isn’t the easiest of courses at the best of times and these won’t be the best of times. So, whilst the 2020 US Masters odds look, at first glance, straightforward enough, this one could go anywhere. Indeed the more you eye the weather the more interesting a bet on sports in the US this weekend it becomes. This will be fascinating.
US Masters 2020
- Date – 12th – 15th November, 2020
- Location – Georgia, USA
- Course – Augusta National
- Par – 72
- Length – 6,835m
- Field – 95 Players

Big Hitters May Suffer In Gusty Conditions
Augusta National will host the 84th “Masters” contest once again showcasing its immaculate setting. The field is all familiar with the course, so you can expect some very imaginative pin placements. A gusty afternoon can make the 13th (Azalea) a nightmare of broken dreams. Just who’ll end up in that brook, or the famously ball attracting water at the 15th remains to be seen. The 2020 US Masters odds at Bovada might make it look like it couldn’t be Bryson, but it could.
This is not a forgiving course on a still day with plenty of light. On a grey day with the wind whipping this way and that, it can lay waste to any optimism. The 8/1 Bryson Dechambeau gets makes him favorite, but that’s only just ahead of Dustin Johnson. Dustin gets 17/2 at online betting sites in the US like Bovada. This is just ahead of Jon Rahm on 9/1 and Justin Thomas on 11/1. However, it is the 12/1 on Rory McIlroy which will look tempting to many punters out there.
2020 US Masters Odds Give Tiger Woods Just 45/1
Rory hasn’t shown the best of form lately, but that could change on a dime. Is he a good bet on golf this weekend? Well possibly, although the romantics looking at the 2020 US Masters odds might prefer Tiger Woods at 45/1. Having won last year, he could do it again. No reason why not. However, it might be a little more fun if Hideki Matsuyama got his chance to wear green. One thing is for sure, 16/1 on Brooks Koepka is probably not the best wager to make right now.
2020 US Masters Odds
- Tiger Woods – 45/1
- Bubba Watson – 30/1
- Tyrrel Hatton – 28/1
- Patrick Reed – 28/1
- Tony Finau – 28/1
- Hideki Matsuyama – 25/1
- Patrick Cantlay – 25/1
- Brooks Koepka – 16/1
- Xander Schauffele – 14/1
- Rory McIlroy – 12/1
- Justin Thomas – 11/1
- Jon Rahm – 9/1
- Dustin Thomas – 17/2
- Bryson Dechambeau – 8/1

Nor, alas, is that 14/1 on Xander Schauffele. That price seems a little generous given this year’s tournament will not really favor long hitters. The weather really is going to make a difference. So, as you click over to online sportsbook sites in the US like Bovada just remember; this won’t be an ordinary bet on Tiger Woods or whomever. Sure, you can bet on Bryson Debchambeau to hit it long and tap it in, but only if the wind lets him. It may not. The 2020 US Masters odds may well be misleading.
We take a look at the 2020 US Masters odds as the weather effects of Tropical Storm Eta are likely to create tricky playing conditions.
