The Masters 2019 odds: Brooks Koepka slashed from 28/1 to 5/1 favourite to win, Rory McIlroy slips down to ninth

Former world No.1 Brooks Koepka has emerged as the clear favourite to win the Masters after his brilliant opening round at Augusta National.

The American’s odds have been cut from 28/1 to 5/1 to win the major.

Koepka is seeking his fourth major of his career and a first triumph at Augusta

Play started on Thursday and 16 per cent of all bets on the eventual winner have been placed on Koepka wearing the Green Jacket on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Dustin Johnson is second favourite at 13/2, with Bryson DeChambeau (7/1), John Rahm (12/1) and Phil Mickelson (14/1) third, fourth and fifth favourites respectively.

Fellow American Tiger Woods is also 14/1 to win the major while Rickie Fowler (16/1), Adam Scott (25/1) and Rory McIlroy (25/1) outside contenders.


Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Koepka is the early standout and has put himself in a great position. That’s translated into what the public is punting, with Koepka easily the most popular.

“But, with the likes of Dustin Johnson breathing down his neck, he’ll know that there is a long way to go before thinking about a fourth major.”
