The 85th Masters Tournament gets underway as the first major of the year starts this Thursday at Augusta National.
Although it’s only been a couple of months since last year’s edition of this championship was on our screens – it was moved to November due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 Masters will see a return to traditional scheduling, with the ceremonial tee shots to be hit on 8 April by six-time winner Jack Nicklaus, three-time winner Gary Player and American golf legend, Lee Elder.

THE MASTERS BETTING
Dustin Johnson – As the current world number one ranked golfer, Dustin Johnson is the favourite at 8/1 (9.00) to retain his title this weekend. Expectations will be at an all-time high for the 2020 Masters champion after producing a stellar display last time out and securing an incredible record score of 268, 20-under-par.
Bryson DeChambeau – America’s 27-year old Bryson DeChambeau is calculated at 9/1(10.00) to claim his second major title, after taking the win in the United States Open Championship last year. Renowned for his analytical approach to the sport, the affectionately nicknamed “Scientist” will surely be a threat on everyone’s radar this weekend, as he currently enjoys some of the best form of his professional career.
Jordan Spieth – After ending a win drought spanning almost four years, Jordan Spieth enters the 2021 Masters in the winner’s circle after claiming a PGA Tour victory in the Valero Texas Open. Boosted by serious form and momentum, the man who won three majors before his 24th birthday is at equal odds with Bryson DeChambeau at 9/1(10.00) to reclaim the title he won back in 2015.
Rory McIlroy – Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy is at 15/1 (16.00) to win his fifth career Major; the 2021 Masters. Although he has not claimed a title since 2015, Rory McIlroy is still considered a living legend in the sport, with pundits and critics reluctant to write off his chances of securing the only major trophy that has eluded him this weekend.
Lee Westwood – The man who ended Tiger Woods’ long reign as the world’s number one golfer comes in at 31/1 (32.00) to win the 86th Masters this weekend. Although Lee Westwood has never won a major throughout his incredible career, he has come tantalisingly close to making history in both 2010 and 2016 by finishing second. Following his runner-up showing at last month’s Players Championship, Westwood is at 25/4 (7.25) to keep up with the best of the best and finish in the top 5.
