Golf News


  • Scottie Scheffler set as Masters favorite with +650 odds at DraftKings
  • Tiger Woods holds +8000 odds at DraftKings to Win 6th Masters title
  • FanDuel offers Augusta Winners Insurance bonus bet in Pennsylvania

Golf’s most popular tournament, the Masters, has attracted the attention of Pennsylvania bettors this week with Scottie Scheffler receiving the highest odds to win at +650 on DraftKings and +700 on FanDuel.

Scheffler, the 2022 Masters champion, looks to grab his second green jacket from Augusta National, but he’ll have to beat a tough field that includes Rory McIlroy (+750 to win at DraftKings), Jon Rahm (+950 at FanDuel), and Jordan Spieth, a two-time Masters winner (+1700 to win on FanDuel.)

The prop bet section at FanDuel and DraftKings offer a significant amount of action for Pennsylvania sports betting fans as bettors can wager on anything from which American golfer will post the lowest score for the tournament to what player makes a hole in one during their stay at Augusta.

FanDuel’s Augusta Winner Insurance Bet Attracts Bettors

FanDuel offers a unique insurance bet for players over the weekend as their Augusta Winner Insurance wager offers bettors the opportunity to receive up to $25 in bonus bets if their golfer does not win but makes the top 20.

Bettors can only make one wager for the contest to qualify for the bonus bet refund. Players are not eligible if they make the bet with bonus funds or profit boost tokens, odds boost bets, cashed out bets, or any parlays.

The refund from FanDuel will be issued within 72 hours of the tournament’s conclusion and expires seven days after it hits the account.

Odds for Tiger Woods to Win 6th Masters Green Jacket

Woods, one of the greatest golfers of all-time, looks to tie Jack Nicklaus with six Masters titles with his trip to Augusta this week. PA sports betting outlets don’t give the 47-year-old much a shot to win the green jacket as FanDuel lists him as a 70-1 favorite, while DraftKings offers 80-1 to adventurous bettors.

The 15-time major winner admitted earlier this week that his surgically repaired leg aches worse than it did last year at this time, a potentially bad omen for the golfer’s chances of making the cut at Augusta.

To make the cut this week, Woods holds -165 odds at DraftKings, while also receiving +120 to miss the top 70 heading into the weekend at the Pennsylvania bookmaker.

Over at FanDuel, Tiger has his own special page of bets including +2000 to post a bogey free round, +4100 to lead the field after Round 1, and +27000 to win from wire to wire.
