  • Updated Masters 2021 odds have Hideki Matsuyama as nearly even money to take home his first Green Jacket, with four other players at 12-1 or less. Justin Rose, Xander Schauffele, Marc Leishman and Will Zalatoris are all -7 and four shots back of Hideki entering Sunday.
  • Matsuyama fired a 7-under 65 to take a commanding lead on Saturday, combining his usually excellent approach game with some excellent putting, as well.

Moving day at The Masters wasn’t without added drama from Mother Nature, but Hideki Matsuyama still managed to deliver the first bogey-free round of the tournament at Augusta National.

Matsuyama finished the round 7-under par and 11-under for the tournament, leapfrogging 36-hole leader Justin Rose, who now sits with four other players tied for second at 7-under (Xander Schauffele, Marc Leishman and Will Zalatoris).

Entering Round 3, the Japanese golfer was available at +1600 to win the tournament, well behind betting favorite Jordan Spieth (+400).

Matsuyama hasn’t won on TOUR since 2017, but at -120 he’s the odds-on favorite to get that monkey off his back. He has five career PGA TOUR wins — the Waste Management Open twice (2016 & 2017), two WGCs (2016 & 2017), and The Memorial (2014). So he’s won in high-pressure situations at big tournaments before.

It’s been a bit of a lackluster season so far for Matsuyama, who hasn’t finished better than 15th in 2021 and missed the cut at THE PLAYERS and the Genesis Invitational. The story is the same — he’s lost strokes putting in 21 of 29 tournaments since the start of last year, and gained strokes on approach in 23 of 29.

Matsuyama isn’t typically a player associated with ultra-strong course history at Augusta National, but has 10 straight-rounds under par and five top 20 finishes at the Masters in the last six years. The ball-striking wizard was also low amateur at the 2011 tournament as a 19-year-old.

Schauffele is the next closest (+450) after firing a 4-under 68 to move up the leaderboard. Also lurking  at -7 are Justin Rose, who has played  two straight even-par rounds after opening at -7, Will Zalatoris in his debut, and Marc Leishman, who has also turned in some strong performances at Augusta with three top-15 finishes since 2013.

Here are the updated betting odds (via DraftKings) as we head into Sunday at Augusta National:
