Masters 2022 odds: Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas lead favorites heading into round one at Augusta National

The betting odds for the 2022 Masters might come as a shock to some, as the favorite to claim victory at Augusta National hasn’t won a tournament since June. Jon Rahm has the shortest odds at Augusta National (10-1) with Justin Thomas (12-1) right behind him heading into the 86th running of this event.

Year-to-date, Rahm is fourth in the world in total strokes won and has four top 10 finishes in eight total starts. Additionally, he has four consecutive top-10 finishes at Augusta National and looks set to win his second major championship just 10 months after his first. He’s played like the best golfer the world should play, and Rahm is certainly a worthy favourite, even though he hasn’t secured the tournament deal so far this year.

Thomas comes in with a similar statistical profile. He is third in total strokes won this calendar year, also has four top 10s on his resume and is yet to win a tournament. His odds are slightly longer, perhaps because he historically hasn’t been as dominant at Augusta National as Rahm, but the two are clearly at the top of the table above the rest of the pack.

Odds Masters 2022

  • Jon Rahm: 10-1
  • Justin Thomas: 12-1
  • Dustin Johnson: 16-1
  • Cameron Smith: 16-1
  • Scottie Scheffler: 18-1
  • Brooks Koepka: 18-1
  • Rory McIlroy: 20-1
  • Xander Schauele: 20-1
  • Patrick Cantlay: 20-1
  • Jordan Spieth: 20-1
  • Victor Hovalnd: 20-1
  • Collin Morikawa: 20-1

These are completely fascinating. You can get two four-time major winners (McIlroy, Koepka) at higher odds than two golfers who have never won a major tournament (Scheffler, Smith). It’s true that Scheffler and Smith have played better than McIlroy and Koepka, but it’s also true that McIlroy has six top 10 finishes at Augusta in his last eight starts and that Koepka has been the best major golfer in the world since 2016. by 64 (!!) shots. Morikawa also feels like a good game considering he’s won two of his last seven majors.

  • Bryson DeChambeau: 28-1
  • Will Zalatoris: 30-1
  • Hideki Matsuyama: 35-1
  • Daniel Berger: 40-1
  • Sam Burns: 40-1
  • Louis Oosthuizen: 40-1
  • Shane Lowry: 45-1
  • Joaquin Niemann: 45-1
  • Matt Fitzpatrick: 50-1
  • Paul Casey: 50-1
  • Corey Conner: 50-1
  • Tyrrell Hatton: 50-1
  • Tiger Woods: 50-1
  • Patrick Roseau: 50-1
  • Adam Scott: 50-1
  • Sungjae Im: 50-1
  • Tony Finau: 50-1

A few names stand out. So far this year, only Rahm has hit the ball better than Zalatoris, who also finished second here last season, one shot clear of the playoffs. He should be more like 25-1 or 20-1 with the way he hits him. I also like Lowry as a sleeper, especially at 45-1. He plays a lot of golf and had a little time out after playing four tournaments in five weeks. Burns at 40-1 is compelling, although it was notoriously difficult for rookies to close. He’s a pretty unique rookie considering he has three PGA Tour wins. Scott and Finau at 50-1 are worthy of consideration.

Woods, while a terrific story worth celebrating, is not a good bet. Probably the best comparison for what he’s trying to do this year is the 2018 Masters when he hadn’t played much since the end of 2015. He played five times before this Masters and finished T32. It’s a reasonable result (if not top of the line) for his week this time around.

  • Tommy Fleetwood: 60-1
  • Russell Henley: 60-1
  • Justin Rose: 65-1
  • Webb Simpson: 65-1
  • Bubba Watson: 65-1
  • Abraham Ancer: 65-1
  • Marc Leishman: 65-1
  • Sergio Garcia: 65-1
  • Si Woo Kim: 80-1
  • Gary Woodland: 80-1
  • Billy Horschel: 80-1

Henley is easy to fall in love with at this number, and he has a straight top 15 here. However, I’m more constrained by Leishman at 65-1 and Kim at 80-1. You might as well throw Rose at 65-1 in there. All three of these golfers play well on this course and have been in contention or close to it for the past few years. In fact, all three finished in the top 15 at the 2021 Masters behind Hideki Matsuyama, and while none of them are particularly thriving right now, Augusta National is one of the best “horse tracks for kids”. course” to the whole world.
