While there is a bit of mystery heading into the 2020 Masters given its unique spot on the calendar, the consensus is that the big-time names, particularly the bombers in the field could, and should, find success at Augusta National this year.
Bryson DeChambeau, the longest hitter on the PGA Tour, is the betting favorite for the week fresh off of a U.S. Open win. Behind him, you have the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, and Dustin Johnson circled as players that could be toward the top of the leaderboard heading into the weekend.
When it comes down to it, however, we don’t really know how Augusta will play this November compared to what we usually see during its regular playing time in April. Nevertheless, just like any major championship, there are a few names that don’t seem to be getting as much respect as they deserve from Vegas.
Value Picks To Win The 2020 Masters
After finishing T-9 in last year’s Masters, Cantlay isn’t necessarily flying under the radar so to speak, but given that his odds currently sit at 22-1 he certainly falls into that valuable player pool for the week.
The 28-year-old’s game should be in great shape heading into Augusta as well after winning the ZOZO Championship less than a month ago. He also finished T-8 in early October at the Shriners Hospitals For Children Open. Overall, Cantlay gets it done from tee-to-green. While nothing about his game will jump out at you, he’s incredibly consistent. Most importantly, Cantlay’s game around the greens so far this season has been exceptionally strong, which is always a recipe for success at the Masters.
After what was a disappointing season a year ago with just three Top 10’s and seven missed cuts in 20 starts, Watson’s game seems to be rounding back into form in a major way.
After a T-31 finish at the U.S. Open in September, the lefty has earned a T-7 and T-4 finish in his other two starts this season, the latter being two weeks ago at the ZOZO Championship. It’s no secret that Watson is extremely comfortable at Augusta National given the fact he has two green jackets in his closet. When Bubba is playing well heading into a venue he likes and has a solid history at, he turns into one of the more dangerous players on the planet.
Watson is eight on Tour in strokes gained: off the tee and ninth in strokes gained: approach heading into the week. If he can get the flatstick working he could be contending for his third green jacket.
The 50-1 odds for Tommy Fleetwood seem high because they are. He hasn’t shown a whole lot over the past eight or nine months, but things have to turn around for the 29-year-old sooner rather than later, so why not at Augusta?
Fleetwood, who finished T-17 in the 2018 Masters and T-36 a year ago, hasn’t had a Top 10 finish since March when he finished third at the Honda Classic. He’s teed it up just three times in the new season having missed the cut at the U.S. Open and was a non-factor in his two most recent starts.
This is a spot where Fleetwood could pop and jump back on everyone’s radar, and with 50-1 odds, it’s tough not to at least put a flyer out on the No. 16 player in the world.
