The 2020 Masters Tournament will take place Nov. 12-15 under the PGA Tour’s revised 2020 schedule. Below, we break down the 2020 Masters betting odds, with PGA Tour predictions, picks and best bets.
The Masters field has been set at 96 golfers. Anyone who wins an event between mid-June and the 2020 tournament will then qualify for the 2021 Masters to be played next April.

Justin Thomas (+1400)
Thomas, the 2017 PGA Championship winner, tied for 12th at last year’s Masters for his best result in four appearances. He made the cut in all four career tries at Augusta. Of his 12 career PGA Tour wins, eight have come between August and December. He won twice in 2019, at the BMW Championship and CJ Cup, and he won the 2020 Sentry Tournament of Champions.
Thomas is one of the best-rounded golfers on Tour, and he ranked fifth with 1.958 total strokes gained per round on the 2019-20 season before the season was put on hold.

Tommy Fleetwood (+2800)
Fleetwood has runner-up results at both the U.S. Open (2018) and Open Championship (2019), but a top showing of just T-17 at the 2018 Masters. A five-time winner on the European Tour, he ranks sixth in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings. His putter has often kept him out of the winner’s circle, but he has one of the best approach games in the world.

Lee Westwood (+8000)
The soon-to-be 47-year-old Westwood was becoming a popular pick for an April Masters before play was put on pause. The midseason stoppage has allowed for his odds to become more profitable again and will return $800 on a $10 bet.
He earned his 41st career victory at the European Tour’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January, and he tied for fourth at The Honda Classic in early March.
Sergio Garcia (+8000)
The 2017 Masters champ has missed the cut each of the last two years at Augusta and in seven of his last nine majors. He was returning to better form early in 2020, however, as he had two top 10s on the European Tour before a T-37 showing at the Genesis Invitational.

2020 Masters Betting Picks – Long shots

Danny Willett (+12500)
It was Willett who dressed Garcia in his green jacket as the 2016 Masters champion. Willett has missed the cut each of the past three years, but he tied for sixth at last year’s Open Championship. He won on the European Tour each of the last two years, most recently winning the BMW PGA Championship in September, besting a field including Jon Rahm and Patrick Reed.
Corey Conners (+17500)
Conners is my favorite long-shot bet due to his incredibly strong tee-to-green and approach games. Like Fleetwood, he struggles with the putter, but he’s able to give himself good looks and needs to get hot for only four days. He tied for 46th in his debut last year after gaining a late entry with his win at the Valero Texas Open.
