The first golf major tournament of the 2023 season is upon us: It’s time for The Masters. The week in Augusta, Georgia, is a magical time in the golf world, and this year will be no different, with plenty of storylines and betting options, especially considering the world’s top three of Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm.

Those three are given short odds to win the tournament, and it’s no surprise: All three have victories this season, and all three have previous success at Augusta National Golf Club, most notably Scheffler’s victory at The Masters last year.

It’s no surprise then, that Scheffler is the favorite, coming in at an ultra-low +500 price at Caesars Sportsbook, official odds partner of Bet.NOLA.com. He’s followed by McIlroy — who needs a Masters title to complete the career grand slam by winning all four majors — at +700, and then Rahm at +900.

The favorites

Rahm (+900) has had the best track record of any golfer thus far this season, winning three early events this year (Sony Tournament of Champions, American Express and Genesis Invitational) and adding top 10s at the Farmers Insurance Open and the WM Phoenix Open. But the Spaniard has struggled over the past month and also has just one major tournament victory in his career, the 2021 U.S. Open.

Of course, McIlroy (+700) hasn’t won a major since 2014, and his only victory this year came in the Hero Dubai Desert Classic, a European Tour event that had a good field but not as deep of one as some of Rahm’s victories.

That leaves Scheffler (+500), who has victories this year at Phoenix Open and The Players Championship and who won The Masters last year by three shots over McIlroy. A rightful favorite, indeed.

Other past champions

Past champions are always invited back to the limited field at The Masters, and given the unique course design at Augusta, historical success and familiarity with the layout and greens is always a big deal.
