2024 Masters odds, picks, predictions: Tiger Woods projection from top golf model that nailed last 2 winners

April 5, 2024

Though he’s a longshot to win this year, no player transforms the feel of Augusta National Golf Club like Tiger Woods. He came to the Masters in 2019 having not won a major since 2008, but he stunned the golf world with a win and fifth green jacket. Now in the later stages of his career, Woods enters the 2024 Masters just one win short of tying Jack Nicklaus’s record of six. Woods is widely expected to be in the 2024 Masters field when play begins Thursday, April 11, so does he have one more run left in him?The latest 2024 Masters odds list Woods at 160-1, the same odds as past winners Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia. Scottie Scheffler, already a two-time PGA winner this year, is the 2024 Masters favorite at 5-1, followed by Rory McIlroy (10-1) and defending Masters champion Jon Rahm (13-1). Before locking in your 2024 Masters picks or Tiger Woods props, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, the model is up nearly $9,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.McClure’s model predicted Scottie Scheffler would finish on top of the leaderboard at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship this season. McClure also included Hideki Matsuyama in his best bets to win the 2024 Genesis Invitational. That bet hit at +9000, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned nearly $1,000.The model also predicted Jon Rahm would be victorious at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm’s second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scheffler winning in 2022.In addition, McClure’s best bets included Nick Taylor (70-1) winning the 2023 RBC Canadian Open, Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic. This same model has also nailed a whopping 10 majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns. Now that the Masters 2024 field is set, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.Top 2024 Masters predictions One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2024 Masters: Patrick Cantlay, a 28-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. With eight PGA Tour wins and at least one top-10 finish in three out of the four majors, the 32-year-old continues to knock on the doorstep of a major win.After missing the cut in his first Masters as a professional in 2018, he’s found his rhythm at Augusta National, finishing 17th or better in three of his last five appearances. He also finished 14th or better in three out of four major events in 2023. Finishes outside the top 30 at the Arnold Palmer and Players Championship have raised his odds, but he also has a recent 11th-place run at Pebble Beach and a fourth-place showing at the Genesis Invitational, so Cantlay brings strong value for 2024 Masters bets, according to the model.The model has also examined where Tiger finishes. Since winning the 2019 Zozo Championship to tie Sam Snead’s all-time record for PGA Tour wins (82), Woods has only made 17 worldwide starts because of his mounting injury issues. His schedule has been even more sparse of late, as he’s only teed it up seven times since the start of the 2022 season and was forced to withdraw for injury or illness in three of those events.However, we’ve seen Woods overcome long odds at Augusta National Golf Club before. He only played the Masters twice from 2014 to 2018 and finished 17th and 32nd in the two times he did play at Augusta. Still, he managed to use his mastery of the course to win a fifth green jacket at the 2019 Masters, holding off Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele by a shot. If he can hold up physically for four rounds, it’s hard to count the 15-time major winner out.
