Bryson DeChambeau is among the favorites to win the 2020 edition of the Masters. He might prove a favorite among the NJ sports betting crowd for another reason.
DraftKings Sportsbook is offering new customers a chance to double their money if DeChambeau makes the cut. That may be just the start of a profitable few days for golf bettors, however.
How Bryson DeChambeau promo works
If you’re new to DraftKings Sportsbook, you can take advantage of this deal. Given the likelihood of DeChambeau’s qualification, it’s almost a sure thing.
DeChambeau is favored to win the entire tournament.

So here is how the promo works:
- Sign up for a DraftKings Sportsbook account via the link above.
- Deposit at least $5 into your account.
- DraftKings will issue you a single-use odds boost on DeChambeau to make the cut.
- You must select the boost from your bet slip to get a boosted price of +100.
- The original price was -769.
The max bet is $50, so you stand to make as much as another $50 if DeChambeau’s performance in the qualifying round proves adequate.
The promo expires when the first participants tee off on Thursday, Nov. 12. For that reason, time is of the essence.
This offer is not available to existing DraftKings customers. However, there are other opportunities for all bettors, no matter how experienced.
Masters watch: DeChambeau, Woods + Rahm
Besides being the favorite to win the 2020 Masters, DraftKings also set the shortest odds on DeChambeau finishing in the top five (+188), and he’s tied with Dustin Johnson for the shortest odds to finish in the top 10 (+100).
But will DeChambeau actually come out on top at Augusta National this time? He has some stiff competition.
DeChambeau comes in with some momentum, having won the 2020 US Open in September. However, Tiger Woods looks to become the first back-to-back Masters champion since he won this event in both ’01 and ’02.
Augusta is notorious for favoring contenders who prioritize distance off the tees. That might prove even more crucial this year, as there is rain in the forecast all weekend.
That plays well into DeChambeau’s strengths, as he’s among the best at hitting the ball far and high in the game right now. So do other players, like Jon Rahm, however.
Rahm enters this tournament with momentum as well. He has three top-five finishes over his last five competitions. Additionally, he finished second in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines South earlier this year, which is a course that plays very similarly to Augusta National.
If DeChambeau can strike well and not lose that advantage in the short game, he could dominate this field. It would be hard to blame anyone looking further down the market, however, as experience on this course can be vital to success.
