Patrick Cantlay 2024 Masters Odds, Betting Preview, and Predictions

The 2024 edition of The Masters is only a few weeks away, meaning bettors are already gearing up to place their wagers in the outright betting market.

There have been spectacular performances on golf's biggest stage throughout the decades. We've seen no repeat winners at Augusta National Golf Club since Tiger Woods recorded this feat in 2001 and 2002. Unquestionably one of the most difficult courses to play, the best golfers from the PGA Tour, LIV Golf, and the DP World Tour will qualify to compete at The Masters. This gives us quite a few options to wager in the outright betting market.

In this article, we'll focus on Patrick Cantlay, who has a highly decorated career on the PGA Tour, despite not yet taking the winning podium at Augusta National. PGA handicapper Matt MacKay is back to share his insight on how to approach wagering Cantlay in the outright betting market ahead of The Masters, which tees off on April 11, 2024.

PATRICK CANTLAY MASTERS ODDS (+2100) Click here to see which sportsbook has the best odds

Despite not finishing better than T9 at The Masters, oddsmakers are putting a lot of merit into Cantlay's stock at Augusta. He's currently available at +2100 on FanDuel Sportsbook. Meanwhile, previous winners, like Hideki Matsuyama (+5500), Patrick Reed (+6000), and Adam Scott (+13000) all contain significantly longer odds than Cantlay.

The southern California native has won eight events on the PGA Tour since 2017, however, his last win came at the 2022 BMW Championship. He's currently riding a two-year win drought, while nursing a slim lead heading into the final round of The Genesis Invitational, but oddsmakers are giving him the benefit of the doubt on past shortcomings when it comes to his performances at Augusta National.

His metrics are good but not great this season. Cantlay is currently no better than 58th in any strokes gained statistic, ranking 58th in strokes gained around the green, which is his highest mark to date. Cantlay plays well out of bunkers, ranking 22nd in sand save percentage, which will be a huge asset at Augusta. He's also ranked 20th in birdie average, 21st in par 4 scoring, and 39th in bogey avoidance.

No one starts better than Cantlay this season, as he's ranked first in Round 1 scoring average. We already saw this play out at Genesis, as Cantlay held onto a first round lead by himself at -7-under-par. However, the next three rounds tend to see notable regression, ranking 99th or worse. There's no doubt that Cantlay's ball-striking is the best aspect of his game, ranking ninth for consecutive greens in regulation, while also sitting at 25th in going for green hit percentage.

In 2023, Cantlay wound up with a T14 finish, his second-best performance at The Masters since making his debut in 2012. A T9 finish in 2019, followed by a T17 in 2020, led to a missed cut in 2021, with a paltry T39 in 2022. His volatile performance at this event makes Cantlay a risky investment at +2100 odds in outright betting markets. It's best to wager half a unit at most on him, even with odds inside of the top-ten.

We have yet to see Cantlay piece it all together for four rounds at any event in roughly two years, plus he's only logged a T10 finish once at Augusta National. He's due to don a green jacket at some point, but anything more than 0.50 units is too much despite the enticing ball-striking that Cantlay possesses.
