It’s Masters week! The most prestigious golf tournament of the year is finally here. The 2020 Masters was originally scheduled to take place in mid-April, but it was forced to be postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. This years Masters is now set to take place this coming November 12-15th. Tiger Woods is back as the defending champion after winning the 2019 Masters a year and a half ago. This fact, along with most other top US sports leagues being between seasons should bring a huge amount of media attention to this event and I’m expecting a lot of betting interest for this years tournament.
Bryson DeChambeau is the current favourite heading into the Masters after winning the US Open two months ago. DeChambeau was able to overpower Winged Foot and many believe he will be able to overpower Augusta National as well. It will be interesting to see how the course plays in November compared to it’s traditional April dates. Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas and Xander Schauffele are the other pre-tournament favourites.
The Masters always brings out new online sports bettors so this year I wanted to create a guide for Canadians looking to place their first online bets on the 2020 Masters tournament. I’ve broken down the step by step guide to setting up and online betting account and placing your Masters bets below.
