Who is the Favourite for the 2023 Masters

If you have been wondering which player will most likely win the 2023 golf masters in August, you've come to the right place. Here are the latest odds.
 

The Masters Tournament is one of men’s professional golf’s four major championships, and it’s set to commence at the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, the US, on Thursday, April 6th, 2023.

It will last for three days, ending on Sunday, April 9th. The question being asked here is, who will win the Masters Tournament and claim the lion’s share of the guaranteed $15,000,000.00 prize pool? Find out more right here.

Who is the current favourite to win the golf Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia?

To better understand which player is most likely to win the upcoming golf Masters Tournament, the best thing to do would be to see what some of the most trusted online bookmakers are saying.

The latest and most accurate golf betting odds William Hill & New Zealand have to offer today have Jon Rahm as the odds-on favourite to win the event outright, NOT the current reigning champion, Scottie Scheffler (the winner in 2022).

A closer look at the odds

Let’s take a look at the latest golf Masters Tournament odds for the top four players who stand the best chance at winning. They include the following players:

  • Jon Rahm – he’s the odds-on favourite to win and is currently priced at 13/2 in the UK fractional odds format, which is the same as saying 650 in the American/moneyline odds format. In the European decimal odds format, 13/2 is equal to 7.50. It also means he has a 13.35% implied probability rate of winning the tournament outright
  • Scottie Scheffler – he’s the second odds-on favourite to win and is currently priced at 15/2 in fractional odds, 750 in American/moneyline odds, and 8.50 in decimal odds, which means he has an 11.80% chance of winning the tournament outright
  • Rory Mcllroy – he’s currently priced at 9/1 (which is 900, or 10.00), with a 10.00% chance of winning
  • Cameron Smith – he’s currently priced at 15.00 (which is 1,400, or 15.00), with only a 6.70% chance of winning

Based on these odds, it looks like a much safer bet would be on Jon Rahm to win this year’s Masters. However, these odds are subject to change at any time and don’t forget that no matter how certain some of these odds first appear, no bets are ever guaranteed.
