The Masters gets underway Thursday morning at Augusta National, and bettors likely won’t be able to sleep all night. The best golf tournament of the year brings everyone out of the woodwork to aimlessly place bets on the plethora of markets offered on DraftKings Sportsbook and beyond. Of those markets, one of the more popular is first round leader.
Let’s take a look at the list of odds to lead after Round 1 at Augusta on Thursday, plus some betting splits to give us insight into how the public is thinking.
2022 Masters first-round leader odds
Bets and handle for first-round leader are going to be pretty spread out. It’s a fun market to sprinkle some money on a handful of golfers at long odds in hopes they’ll get hot in the first round. Cam Smith leads the way on DKSB along with Jordan Spieth. Smith has two wins in his past four tournaments. Outright Smith comes in at 14/1 to win The Masters, which are the fourth-best odds on DraftKings Sportsbook.
As always, Tiger Woods is going to pop up in just about any table sent our way this weekend. Woods is set to return to try and win his sixth Masters title and right now he’s the most heavily bet on golfer in terms of outright bets on DKSB. At 45/1 to lead after Round 1, that narrative would have all of us swooning. It would also help 3% of the bets pay out very nicely. Tiger feels volatile in the betting market in his first tournament in a while. Woods looked good in practice and knows this course and how to win on it better than anybody in the field.
