The 2013 Masters gets underway on Thursday, as the best players in the world prepare to tackle Augusta National Golf Club for the first Major of the year. And we can only hope that come Sunday afternoon that there are some great storylines and play going on.
There are a number of players pegged to be contenders this week, at the top of which has to be Tiger Woods. Woods has three wins this year already, and appears to have control of his game unlike we’ve seen in roughly three to four years. As a result, Woods enters the 2013 Masters as the big favorite, paying out 3 to 1 on betting lines to win.
But when it comes to the Masters, the betting odds flood sportsbooks with a variety of different options that bettors can get in on.
One of the types of betting lines that we see are Masters head-to-head odds. These odds are similar to 3-ball lines released for different groups that are paired together, but there are some differences. Head-to-head betting odds pair two players against each other for the duration of the tournament. These players do not have to be paired with each other in any round. But they will be linked on head-to-head lines.
Let’s take a look at a few examples for the 2013 Masters. Head-to-head odds are available up until the first tee time on Thursday. With these odds, we get some great pairings. Woods and Rory McIlroy are obviously going to headline this set of odds. These two are paired on head-to-head odds, with Woods installed as the favorite to record the higher finish this week. But due to McIlroy’s finish at the Valero Texas Open this past weekend, the betting line is certainly closer than what it would have been had he not finished in second. Woods is installed as a -175 favorite on the moneyline, which is a $1 profit for every $1.75 risked. In the role of the underdog, McIlroy is set at +135, which is a $1.35 profit for every $1 risked.
But these lines don’t stop there.
Phil Mickelson is the third overall favorite, behind Woods and McIlroy this week. Justin Rose is right behind as well. Mickelson and Rose are matched in a head-to-head line, with the exact same payouts as Woods and McIlroy for the favorite and the underdog. Lefty is leading the way, while Rose is in the role of the underdog.
Defending Masters champion Bubba Watson is matched up against Matt Kuchar, who finished T-3 last year at Augusta. Both players here have been slated with equal -115 payouts on the moneyline.
The runner-up at the 2012 Masters to Bubba Watson, Louis Oosthuizen, is set against Keegan Bradley. Here again, we see an equal -115 payout for both players.
