The 85th staging of The Masters will be underway this April at the Augusta National Golf Club, where legends are born — and made. Last year, Dustin Johnson dominated the tournament to take home a Green Jacket. Who will it be this year? Will it be Johnson again? Or, will another player end up winning it all?

Who are the favorites to win the 2021 Masters Tournament?
- 2021 Masters Tournament Odds: +800
It’s really a no-brainer to have Dustin Johnson as among the favorites to win. With the manner with which he destroyed the competition in the Masters in 2020, how can’t he be the top player to watch out for? Johnson won the 2020 Masters by finishing 20 under par to shatter the record previously shared by Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth. Johnson has played 10 PGA TOUR events at Augusta and has made the cut in nine of them.

Rahm, who’s currently ranked third in the world, is still chasing for his first Green Jacket, but he’s come close to winning one on multiple occasions. Rahm has three top-10 finishes at Augusta. Last year, he was seventh in the 2020 Masters. His best finish there was a fourth-place campaign in the 2018 Masters. But here’s one thing to keep in mind for those looking to bet on Rahm: he might pull out of the tournament to attend the birth of his and wife’s Kelley’s first child.
Via Golf Channel: “If anybody’s thinking of betting on me on the Masters, maybe think about it twice because there’s a chance I have to just turn around and leave that week,” Rahm said at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.
This is certainly something to watch out for.
Who are the sleepers in the 2021 Masters Tournament?
- 2021 Masters Tournament Odds: +3000
Morikawa doesn’t have much experience playing at Augusta. In fact, he’s only played there once, finishing 44th in the 2021 Masters. Well, at least he made the cut. But Morikawa has shown enough sparkle to demand some attention from bettors looking to cash in on a sleeper. Morikawa has one win this season, as of this writing, topping the field in the WGC-Workday Championship. And just last year, he’s won his first major when he ruled the competition in the PGA Championship. Not bad for someone who just turned 24 last February.
- 2021 Masters Tournament Odds: +5000
Day looked like he could be a force to reckon with in Augusta when he made his debut there in 2011 and ended up finishing second. Since then, the Australian has yet to win a Green Jacket, but he’s managed to place inside the top 10 three more times. Day hasn’t been performing well for quite some time now, but someone who was ranked the world’s top golfer just a few years ago shouldn’t have his chances to win a major entirely dismissed.
Expert’s Prediction for the 2021 Masters Tournament
It takes a special player to win the Masters two times in a row, something that has only been done by three players: Nick Faldo, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods. Dustin Johnson now has the opportunity to join that incredibly exclusive club, given his form. Johnson is the easiest pick to win the 2021 Masters, but against a talented field in Augusta, who’s to say he can’t be defeated there? Rahm is always a threat to win there, while guys like Rory McIlroy and Bryson DeChambeau are among those who are expected to make things interesting up to the last day of the tournament.
