2023 The Masters’ Odds Favor Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas
It’s never too early to look at the early odds for the most significant PGA Tour events. The 2023 odds for The Masters are out, so we can take a deep look at which golfers make the most sense right now.
Yes, it’s a long time away from now, but the odds could be as valuable as ever right now. Certain golfers have the early lead, but others have incredible value in their odds. Have a golfer in mind that you think does well next season? Why not place an early bet to try and set yourself up for future success.
Just about any golfer could be a viable option. If they had a rough 2022, maybe they could bounce back in 2023. On the other hand, a golfer who’s been great this season could continue their success into the next.
The Masters 2023 Odds
These are the top 15 options with odds available for The Masters 2023. You can find these odds and the rest of the list on Bovada.
Coming in at the top is Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas, who are co-favorites to win right now at +1100. If you are a frequent golf bettor, you probably know that these two golfers tend to be at the top of the odds in just about any tournament.
It shouldn’t be a huge surprise to see them at the top of the list, but it could be a bit of a surprise to see them as co-favorites. They are both great golfers, but are they the best bets to make right now?
Rahm and Thomas have participated in The Masters a good handful of times in their career, but neither has been able to win it. If you don’t think they change that in 2023, it would make sense to bet on the other options, which also have more value in their odds.
Directly behind Rahm and Thomas is Cameron Smith. Smith placed 3rd in the 2022 Masters tournament with a -5. In addition to an impressive finish in 2022, Smith placed even better at 2nd in 2020. He also was the winner of The Players Championship and Sentry Tournament of Champions this year.
Rory McIlroy is a viable option on basically any course he plays on, so it’s no different here. He finished in 2nd place in The Masters this year with a -7 and has 14 career appearances in the event. Of those 14 appearances, he placed within the top 10 in exactly half of them (7).
The defending champion will be Scottie Scheffler (+1200), who’s been incredible in 2022 as well.
Why Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas are Favored
Before deciding who you want to bet on for The Masters in 2023, you should take an in-depth look at the co-favorites. Sportsbooks have been placing Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas near the top of every event they participate in, and with good reason.
For Rahm, he could be extra motivated to improve on his 27th placing in 2022. He’s had success at Augusta National Golf Club before, placing 4th as his best try in 2018. Rahm also placed within the top 10 in 3 more of his 6 total tries.
The very next event Rahm participated in after The Masters was the Mexico Open. He was able to win that event, which could be a sign of his extra motivation. As of this writing, Rahm has participated in 15 PGA Tour events this year. Of those 15, he’s placed within the top 10 six times.

As for Thomas, he has one more appearance at The Masters than Rahm with 7. Thomas has placed 4th as his best try in 2020, while also placing 8th in 2022 and 12th in 2019. He couldn’t win the last Master’s tournament, but he was able to win another highly competitive one.
That would be the PGA Championship, where Thomas shot a -5 and tied for first with Will Zalatoris. Then, after defeating Zalatoris in the three-hole aggregate playoff, Thomas took home his second career win at the event.
Rahm and Thomas haven’t won The Masters yet in their careers, but they’ve won other highly competitive tournaments. They are both talented golfers and are undoubtedly viable options to bet on right now.
However, +1100 odds are not as profitable as the other options. If you think another golfer is in for a big performance in 2023, there’s a good chance you might be able to win your bet.
