The above list are the odds of the top 20 golfers in terms of highest-odds to win the 2020 Masters. There is only one golfer with odds of better than 10:1 in Rory McIlroy, but quite a few popular names are in the second tier of odds to win the 2020 Masters. Jon Rahm, Tiger Woods, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, and Dustin Johnson are all 11:1 or better.

Bryson DeChambeau 2020 Masters Odds
Bryson DeChambeau detractors, a (somewhat projected) timeline:
Records 6 top 10s in a row: "Yeah, but he's not winning!"
Wins 7th top 10 in a row: "Yeah, but he's not winning majors!"
Wins the Masters: "Yeah, but he's not winning majors w/ rough!"
I almost feel bad for him.

2020 has been the year of Bryson DeChambeau, after playing extremely well after quarantine. DeChambeau won the Rocket Mortgage Classic, and his odds to win the Masters drastically increased. Is this the year DeChambeau wins a major? He is surely playing like it. His odds sit at +1200 to win.
Rory McIlroy Leads the Charge at +750 to Win the Masters
The current favorite to win the 2020 Masters is Rory McIlroy, who has been in incredible form (or was, before the virus hit). In the current season, McIlroy won the HSBC Champions tournament, finished in the top three in the Farmers Insurance Open and the ZOZO Championship, and has finished top 5 in all events in 2020 alone. Since October 2019, McIlroy has finished in the top five in every event he has entered. It is safe to say that he is deservedly the favorite for the Masters at +650, assuming he holds his form through the summer.
