2020 Masters odds: Surprising PGA picks, predictions from top-rated model that nailed six majors

The 2020 Masters won’t have any patrons, but 95 of the top golfers in the world will still be tested at one of the most iconic golf courses on Earth. The first 2020 Masters tee times are on Thursday. The 2020 Masters Tournament was pushed back from April to November because of the coronavirus pandemic, but Augusta National Golf Club appears to be in typically excellent condition despite the delay. However, early Masters 2020 weather forecasts indicate there may be rain all four days.

How will the 2020 Masters weather impact veterans like Tiger Woods (35-1) and Phil Mickelson (80-1) as well as newcomers like Collin Morikawa (30-1) and Matthew Wolff (33-1) in the 2020 Masters field? Bryson DeChambeau is the 8-1 favorite in the latest 2020 Masters odds from William Hill Sportsbook after his victory at the U.S. Open in September. Before locking in your 2020 Masters picks or entering any PGA DFS tournaments on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to see the latest 2020 Masters predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

SportsLine’s prediction model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been on fire since the return of the PGA Tour in June. In fact, it’s up over $11,000 on its PGA best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again on his best bets. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Garcia winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +5500 return. 

He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff. McClure hit a top-five bet (+1200) on Doc Redman at the Wyndham Championship, finishing up over $700 on his best bets. 

The model was all over Dustin Johnson (8-5) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Tour Championship and Justin Thomas winning the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational at 12-1. And at the 3M Open, McClure’s best bets returned a whopping $1,100 as he nailed a top-five pick on Max Homa (+1200) and a top-20 pick on Talor Gooch (+400). Those are just some of his recent big returns. 

In all, the advanced computer model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed its golf picks has seen massive returns. 

Now that the 2020 Masters field is taking shape, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

The model’s top 2020 Masters predictions 

One huge shocker the model is calling for at the Masters 2020: DeChambeau, the defending U.S. Open champion and top favorite at William Hill, stumbles and barely cracks the top 10. DeChambeau proved his style of play can lead to a major championship title, winning the first major of his career in convincing fashion at Winged Foot in September. However, DeChambuau has struggled at Augusta National, finishing outside the top 25 in his last two starts at the Masters. 

DeChambeau has also finished 30th or worse in four of his last eight starts on the PGA Tour, and his inconsistent performances can be directly attributed to his inability to find the fairway off the tee. The 27-year-old enters the 2020 Masters Tournament with a 52.68 driving accuracy percentage, which ranks 205th on the PGA Tour. He also ranks 131st or worse in total putting (251.8), putting average (1.748) and one-putt percentage (36.81), which doesn’t bode well for his chances to finish on top of the 2020 Masters leaderboard at Augusta National. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the Masters Tournament 2020 field.

Another surprise: Patrick Reed, a 28-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he’s one of the 2020 Masters picks and sleepers you should be all over. The 2018 Masters champion won at the 2020 WGC-Mexico Championship prior to the coronavirus shutdown and then battled through inconsistencies after the restart to record six top-25 finishes in his last eight starts.

Reed has a feathery touch around the greens and has ranked in the top 20 in strokes-gained putting the last two seasons. That’s always critical around the sometimes overwhelming green complexes at Augusta National.

Reed’s dominance of par-five holes so far this season (second on tour in par-five scoring average) could also be a massive advantage this week. The model says he’s a strong choice for your 2020 Masters bets.

Also, the model is targeting three other golfers with odds of 25-1 or higher to make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see them here.
