As March Madness fades into the past, sports bettors will not have to wait long for a new event to wager on. Thursday morning, the 2022 Masters Tournament will get underway in Augusta, Ga. BetMGM New York has various masters-related markets sports bettors can wager on, along with the tournament winner.
There is only one former winner among the top five favorites at New York sportsbooks — Dustin Johnson (+1800). A stiff neck may keep Hideki Matsuyama from defending his title, and his odds of winning are pretty long at +4000. It looks like five-time Masters champion Tiger Woods (+5000 to win) will play.
With the potential to win a massive payday at those odds, the Masters is an opportune time to take advantage of the BetMGM New York Bonus Code SHARP that gives new customers a risk-free bet of up to $1,000.

The Masters 2022 Odds — Our Five Favorite Bets
Betting on the winner is not one of them. Why? For one, the betting favorite rarely goes on to win. The tournament favorite has won just one of 27 PGA tournaments played this season (according to GolfOdds.com). Of those winners, 17 had odds from +2000 to +6000, and three had odds north of +10,000.
Let’s focus on markets with somewhat lower odds that will still result in a nice payday:
To Finish In The Top Five
- Scottie Scheffler (+275): The No. 1 player in the world has been a man on fire in recent weeks. He’s won the last three tournaments he played and placed inside the top five in the previous five. With the way he has been playing, he should at least finish in the top five — if not win it all (+1600).
- Brooks Koepka (+400): His game has not been consistent this season. In 12 events, he missed the cut in five. But in those seven, he has two top-five finishes. He missed the cut last year but finished T7 and second in 2020 and 2019. Since 2018, he has played in 13 majors with wins in four and top-10 finishes in 10. This week he’s +175 to finish in the top 10.
To Finish In The Top Ten
- Cameron Smith (+140): Smith won the last time he played (The Players). Before that, he placed T33 at the Genesis Invitational and failed to make the cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii. However, Smith finished T9, T15, T4, and first in his other four appearances this season. Smith has a great history at Augusta. He finished tied for tenth last year, tied for second in 2020, and tied for fifth in 2018.
- Viktor Hovland (+180): While he did not play fantastic in his last two tournaments, Hovland has won this season and placed inside the top 10 in three of his last five tournaments. He tied for 21st in the Masters last year.
- Collin Morikawa (+190): So far this season, when he has played, Morikawa has played well (most of the time). In seven PGA events, he made the cut in six, finished inside the top ten in five, and placed second twice. He may also not be a bad bet to finish inside the top five (+400).
