The Masters Tournament 2024 favorites

Below you'll find a list of favorites to win The Masters Tournament 2024.

Scottie Scheffler - (+450)

Having improved his putting immeasurably, the world number one and 2022 winner arrives at The Masters in phenomenal form.

Having won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the second time in three years and having been the first player to defend the Players Championship a week later, there's a reason he is the big favorite for the crown.

Scheffler has also won the Pheonix Open twice, so he clearly enjoys going back to a venue at which he's already won and he's very much the man to beat, two years after he first donned the famous Green Jacket.

Ben Hogan (1951-53), Arnold Palmer (1958-60), Jack Nicklaus (1963-65), Phil Mickelson (2004-06) and Bubba Watson (2012-14), have all won their second Green Jacket two years after their first and Scheffler is a very fair price to repeat that.

He finished tenth last year after winning it in 2022, becoming the second winner to finish in the top-12 after Tiger Woods back in 2006, so his form hasn't dropped off here either. He's clearly the man to beat and the odds are a fair reflection of that.

Rory McIlroy - (+1100)

The world number two, Rory McIlroy was a big favorite last year but then missed the cut, and has been largely disappointing since defending his Dubai Desert Classic title in January.

In search of his fifth major title and his first in ten years, Rory needs to win here to complete the career grand slam and he's certainly had his chances. But the curse has continued up to this point and many fans are questioning whether he will ever be able to break it.

He came from miles back to finish second two years ago but he sat second with a round to go in 2018 before finishing fifth and he was very close to winning the title way back in 2011 before a back-nine collapse saw him finish 15th after he'd led by four with a round to go.

He's very well suited to the venue and coming in slightly under the radar may help him, with less pressure on him than normal. But should he get to the end and still be in contention, then he has the qualities to go all the way.

Jon Rahm - (+1300)

Jon Rahm comes into this tournament as the reigning champion from 2023, but he has hardly set the world alight since switching to the LIV Tour at the end of last year and his chances of success here are greatly affected.

He finished third in Mexico on his debut but that's his best finish and it will be a big ask for him to return to the 72-hold format and be successful off the back of his poor form.

Playing on the LIV Tour certainly didn't do Brooks Koepka or Phil Mickelson any harm last year but defending the title here is a huge negative.

Jordan Spieth finished second when defending in 2016 and he really should have won given he led by five with only nine holes to play but three of the last seven defending champions have missed the cut and Rahm seems more likely to fall into that category than to go and get another green jacket.

Brooks Koepka - (+2000)

Rewind a year and Brooks Koepka took down the LIV Orlando event and then parlayed it into a 54-hole lead at Augusta National that ultimately resulted in a T2 finish at the 2023 Masters, the best he's ever done.

It’s also particularly encouraging that he finished second in true strokes gained on approaches, ninth in true strokes gained tee-to-green, and fourth in true strokes gained putting in last year’s event.

Koepka’s Masters resume also includes a T2 finish in 2019 and another pair of top-15 results. Add his additional 12 Top 5 results in major championships and there is phenomenal value in backing the Amreican to go all the way for the first time in his career at a major championship.
