2024 Masters odds, picks, predictions: Tiger Woods projection by golf model that nailed last two winners

With Tiger Woods bypassing the Players Championship, all signs are pointing to him entering the 2024 Masters, which begins on Thursday, April 11 from Augusta National. Woods last appeared in a PGA Tour event in February, but he had to withdraw from the Genesis Invitational due to illness. Woods also withdrew from the Masters in 2023 due to plantar fasciitis. Woods is a five-time Masters champion and has won 82 career events on the PGA Tour. According to the latest 2024 Masters odds, Woods is going off as a 160-1 longshot. Scottie Scheffler is the favorite at 5-1, while Rory McIlroy is 10-1 on the PGA odds board for the first major of the year. Before locking in your 2024 Masters picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June 2020. In fact, the model is up nearly $9,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.
McClure’s model predicted Scottie Scheffler would finish on top of the leaderboard at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship this season. McClure also included Hideki Matsuyama in his best bets to win the 2024 Genesis Invitational. That bet hit at +9000, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned nearly $1,000.
The model also predicted Jon Rahm would be victorious at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm’s second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scheffler winning in 2022.
In addition, McClure’s best bets included Nick Taylor (70-1) winning the 2023 RBC Canadian Open, Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic.
This same model has also nailed a whopping 10 majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.
Now that the Masters 2024 field is set, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.
Top 2024 Masters predictions
One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2024 Masters: Justin Thomas, a 28-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Thomas has been consistent this season. He’s finished 12th or better in four of his first five starts, which includes a third-place finish at the American Express in January.
Thomas has secured those positive results thanks to his effectiveness on the greens. The two-time major champion entered the Players Championship ranked 15th in putting average (1.710) and 28th in putts per round (28.46). Thomas’ ability to drain putts has helped the 30-year-old average 5.18 birdies per round this season, the second-best mark on the PGA Tour. Those impressive stats, plus his long odds, make Thomas a strong play for your 2024 Masters picks, according to the model.
The model has also examined where Tiger finishes. Woods is 48 and surgeries on his neck, back and legs have clearly taken their toll. However, he defied all odds during his win at the 2019 Masters after having spinal fusion surgery and his course navigation and ball-striking that shined that week.
Woods hit 80.6% of greens in regulation on his way to a 15th major championship victory and will try to tap back into his iron play and course knowledge in 2023. However, Woods has only played seven tournaments with world ranking points assigned over the last two years and has fallen all the way to No. 921.

How to make 2024 Masters picks
The model is also targeting six golfers with Masters odds of 20-1 or longer to make a strong run at the title. Anyone who backs these longshots could hit it big. You can only see the model’s PGA picks here.
