The Masters tees off tomorrow, which is the most popular sports betting event of the golf season every year. With the expansion of legal sports betting, the golf betting markets have increased from being solely wagering on which golfer to win to a large selection of props. Among those props, one of the most-wagered on markets is whether or not golfers will make the cut. At legal sportsbooks this year, bettors can wager on each and every golfer to make (or miss), the cut at various odds.
Let’s take a look at the latest odds for each golfer to make or miss the cut at the 2021 Masters, our betting picks, and some strategy on how to make this a potentially profitable wager for this weekend on the PGA Tour.
Odds to Make the Cut at The Masters

At FanDuel Sportsbook, each golfer’s odds to make the cut are -235 or higher. If you wish to find more odds on this market, check out DraftKings Sportsbook as they have golfers such as Sandy Lyle, Jose Maria Olazábal, and Jim Herman who are all plus odds to make the cut. As you can see, the top golfers are heavy favorites to make the cut. Dustin Johnson is +950 to win the Masters, and he is -1100 to make the cut. This means to win $100, you must wager $1100. While this betting market may not be worth the risk to some bettors, you can also wager on golfers to miss the cut.

Odds to Miss the Cut at the Masters

While it seems very unlikely that golfers such as Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, and Rory McIlroy will miss the cut, the odds reflect that. There is some value on golfers that are inconsistent, or rely heavily on one part of their game to play well. More on these players in our betting picks coming, but for more odds on other golfers not listed above, check out DraftKings Sportsbook.
Our Master Picks
For these two betting markets, we provide a list of our favorite picks to make and miss the cut for this year’s Masters tournament. The cut comes quickly, so this market will close right away.
To Make Cut Betting Picks
- Will Zalatoris (-330)
- Tyrrell Hatton (-310)
With odds being in the -300s, some bettors are looking to parlay two or three of these players together with the top golfers such as Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy for a larger payout given the risk added with the juice built in. Is this possible? For example: Zalatoris, Hatton, Johnson, and McIlroy all to make the cut would increase your odds and potential payout.
To Miss Cut Betting Picks
- Adam Scott (+270)
- Bubba Watson (+200)
These are always tougher to predict, but they come with much better odds. Players like Scott and Watson are quite inconsistent and they make for solid picks at plus-money for these betting markets.
