When it comes to wagering on golf sportsbooks don’t hold back for the major championships. And The Masters is the biggest of them all with a Super Bowl-like prop bet menu. The PGA Tour is looking to make up for lost time following the COVID-induced shutdown last year. The reimagined schedule has six majors on it with The Masters going back-to-back after the Tour attacked Augusta National Golf Club just a few months ago. A return to its normal spot on the schedule and a small throng of spectators gives the event a more normal feel. What won’t be normal is the absence of Tiger Woods, who got plenty of attention on the outright and prop markets.
The betting markets run deep this week with 88 of the world’s best golfers ready to attack the lengthy and iconic Augusta National layout. There are, of course, the standard pick-the-winner and matchup bets, but the majors unleash a host of additional wagering opportunities. If you’re looking for some side action, BookMaker is the right place. Let’s take a look at some of the prop bet options and find out where you can make additional coin while wagering on the 2021 Masters.

Will there be a Hole-in-One
For the weekend golfer scoring an ace is legendary. If a couple of good shots during a round brings them back to the course a few more times, notching a hole-in-one is a year-long pass. The excitement of a one-shot hole out has taken place at Augusta National 31 times in the previous 84 editions. A streak of four straight tournaments with an ace ended in November only increasing the odds of one or more of the best players in the world doing it this week. Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas holed out on the same day in 2019 and three players aced the same 16th hole in 2016. If it’s going to happen it’ll likely take place on the 16th, which has yielded 22 holes-in-one. With more than half of the tournament aces coming since 2003 the odds favor it happening again.
Over 276.5 -250
Under 276.5 +200
This is another popular prop bet since it has nothing to do with a specific golfer and keeps bettors engaged throughout the duration of the tournament. Oddsmakers determine a winning score and the public can wager on whether the winner goes over or under that predicted number. We probably won’t see another record-setting performance like we had in November when Dustin Johnson set a 72-hole record with a 20-under 268. The top four players all would have cashed the UNDER scoring 276 or lower. However, there is a reason the winning score is what it is. Over the previous 10 Masters the winner has been above the number five times and below it on five other occasions. Also keep in mind that Augusta National is a beast and on a good day the pros have a hard time. The weather is expected to cooperate this week, which should allow at least one of the best players in the world to go 12-under par over 72 holes.
Will a Playoff be needed to determine the winner?
Another simple yes/no prop on the menu allows you to wager on the possibility of a playoff to determine the Masters winner. There have been 17 occasions in the previous 84 playings when extra holes were needed. Again, I don’t think we’ll have a performance like what we saw in November when DJ lapped the field winning by five swings. With the best golfers in the world going at it there is certainly a case to be made for a playoff. The last time was in 2017 and we’ve witnessed four playoffs in the last 12 editions. There is little value betting on NO so why not sprinkle some coin on a playoff to get a nice payout?
Will an Albatross be scored?
Also known as the double-eagle, it’s the rarest score in all of golf. And since it can only be registered on a select number of holes, the odds of it happening are even more unlikely. But consider that we have a collection of the best golfers in the world and the par 5s at Augusta yield some of the lowest scores on Tour, I’m willing to go out on a limb and drop some coin on someone achieving this rarity. After all, it wouldn’t be The Masters without some drama.
