The first major tournament of this year, the 2021 Masters is held next week, between the 8th and 11th of April in Augusta, Georgia. The defending champion and current world No1 Dustin Johnson is the biggest favorite in the 2021 Masters Tournament winner odds. But Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas can also win the green jacket following their recent great forms.
The Masters is one of the oldest golf tournaments in the sport, this will be the 85th edition of the event. Only invited players can take part in it, which means The Masters has the smallest field of the major tournaments. This time 84 players will compete in the Augusta National Golf Club including most top players. Like world No1 Dustin Johnson who is also the defending champion. The winner of the 2021 Players Championship, Justin Thomas and former world No1 Jon Rahm. Sadly Tiger Woods can’t be here following his accident but fans can return in limited numbers. Last year’s tournament was postponed from its original date and held in November, but the 2021 Masters is back to its normal date in April. Let’s see who are the main favorites to perform well again in this prestigious tournament.
2021 Masters Tournament winner odds favor DJ’s victory again
Since winning the 2020 Masters last November, Dustin Johnson’s best result in the PGA Tour was a T8 finish in The Genesis Invitational back in February. He also won the Saudi International this year, which was his 9th victory in the European Tour. His balanced performance and last year’s win make him the biggest favorite. With online sportsbooks in the US offering the odds of +800 for his victory. Johnson has withdrawn from the Texas Open this week in order to prepare for the Masters. We’ll see if he can defend his title and win his 25th PGA Tour event.
One of his main rivals can be Bryson DeChambeau who has been in top form this year. The 2020 US Open winner won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida a few weeks ago and finished third in the Players Championship. Top results from the 27-year-old American who is currently in 5th place in the world ranking. DeChambeau has the odds of +1100 in the 2021 Masters Tournament winner odds. In spite of finishing only T34 in the previous event here. But he wasn’t totally healthy then and shot two rounds over par. He is likely to perform much better this time and has a good chance to win his second major tournament.
Thomas, Spieth and Rahm are also in top favorites
Justin Thomas won the 2021 Players Championship this month which was his 14th victory in the PGA Tour. He moved to the second place in the world ranking thanks to this win. Now he is mentioned as one of the main favorites in Augusta too. Online gambling sites in the US offer the odds of +1100 for his victory. Thomas finished 4th here last year and will aim for an even better result this time. The five-time Masters champion Tiger Woods could give him some useful tips during their call after Thomas’ latest win.
But another American player, Jordan Spieth has also been in great form after four top10 finishes this year. Even though he is only 53rd in the ranking, his chances have hugely increased lately. Now his odds to win his second Masters tournament after 2015 are +1200 on BetOnline. Spanish Jon Rahm led the world ranking last year for four weeks but fell back to third place now. He finished fifth both in the Genesis Invitational and the WGC-Dell Match Play last week, so his form is not bad either. Rahm hasn’t won any major tournament yet but has the odds of +1400 to do it now.
