Masters Tournament: Jon Rahm attracting lion’s share of betting dollars

The Masters tees off in less than 24 hours so I wanted to drop you a line with some up-to-the minute data from BetUS (pronounced ‘Bet U.S.’) Sportsbook. 

According to our oddsmakers, Scottie Scheffler and Rory Mcllroy are tied as the odds-on favorites to win this year’s Masters outright, both with +600 (6-to-1) odds as of Wednesday morning. BetUS also reported Wednesday morning that Scheffler has attracted 14.6% of the total bets and 10.78% of the total dollar volume, while Mcllroy has attracted 13.49% of bets and just 4.29% of the total dollar volume bet on the outright winner so far.  

This week will be McIlroy’s 15th attempt at earning a Green Jacket and his ninth opportunity to become only the sixth man to complete the Grand Slam – but if betting action is any predicator, McIlroy – and Scheffler, for that matter – should be worried. 

That’s because perhaps most surprising in the report from BetUS is Jon Rahm, who despite having longer odds (+850) than either Scheffler or Mcllroy and having attracted just 9.13% of the bets placed, those bets account for an astounding 44.35% of the total dollar volume bet on the outright winner so far. “That tells me that professional bettors – who tend to make larger bets – are putting their money on Rahm,” says Gardon Watson, senior betting analyst with BetUS Sportsbook. 

Top American 

Scheffler is the favorite to be the 1st Round Top American, with odds of +850, which has attracted about a third of the total bets placed on that category so far. Xander Schauffele (+1600 or 16-to-1), Tony Finau (+1800; 18-to-1), Sam Burns (+2000; 20-to-1) and Tiger Woods (+2800; 28-to-1) are some of the other professionals listed in this category.  

Top-perform LIV golfer at the Masters, and dozens more ‘prop bets’ 

BetUS Sportsbook offers a range of other exciting betting lines for golf fans. How about which LIV golfer will place highest in this year’s Masters? A bet on Mito Pereira for this prop bet will pay +1400 (14-to-1) and is the bettors’ favorite for this prop, having attracted 35.29% of the bets received.


Bets on golfers making a hole-in-one during the tournament are always a fan favorite, with bets on most of the golfers in the field making a hole-in-one paying somewhere between +5000 (50-to-1) and +7000 (70-to-1).  

Holes-in-one at the Master's used to be rare, with only 14 occurring between 1934 and 2000. Since 2000, there have been 19 more holes-in-one, including two instances of multiple holes-in-one in 1954 and in 2021, when Tommy Fleetwood sank one on the 16th and Corey Conners aced one on the sixth. 

These are just a couple of examples of the dozens of prop bets available on this year’s Masters,

which promises to be one of the most bet-on Masters in history, according to BetUS.
