Updated Masters Odds
The first round of the 2019 Masters is in the books and a familiar name once again is atop the leaderboard.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Brooks Koepka is favored to win the major following Thursday’s opening round, as he is listed with 4/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Dustin Johnson (6/1), Bryson DeChambeau (13/2), Jon Rahm (11/1) and Tiger Woods (11/1). The 2019 Masters continues Friday-Sunday from Augusta National in Augusta, Georgia.
Both Koepka and DeChambeau find themselves in the lead following Thursday’s action. Each shot a 6-under 66 to be tied for first while Phil Mickelson sits in third by himself at 5-under.
Koepka has won three of the last seven majors, including the last two U.S. Open Championships. DeChambeau is looking to win his first major championship.
Dustin Johnson joins Ian Poulter in fourth place after each shot a 4-under 68 on Thursday. Jon Rahm is a shot back at -3 overall after posting a 69 while Tiger Woods shot a 2-under, 70 on Thursday. Woods is not known for starting well at this event, so posting a round under par is a good sign for him as he seeks his fifth Masters title.
