Rory McIlroy: -110
Scottie Scheffler: +116

Rory McIlroy is still looking for the elusive Green Jacket. It's the one major championship he doesn't have in his trophy case. Scheffler, on the other hand, is the defending champion at this event and is coming into the tournament playing some incredible golf.

Rory McIlroy vs Scottie Scheffler Masters Matchup History

While McIlroy has played in The Masters 14 times, Scheffler has only teed it up three times as a pro at Augusta National since his debut in 2020. Scheffler won last year, but McIlroy was the runner-up. Below is a breakdown of how the two have fared, including who won the head-to-head matchup each time.

Rory McIlroy vs Scottie Scheffler Masters Matchup Best Bet

After finishing first and second in last year's event, these two guys are in the same order in the odds to win it again this year and Scheffler is also the slight favorite in this head-to-head matchup. Scheffler, like last year, is coming into the Masters on a tear. He has won twice in his last five starts, and has four top-five finishes in that span. Rory is playing well too, but not like Scheffler.

Rory's last three starts have been a 3rd, missed cut, and T2. We also can't ignore the seemingly otherworldly effects that come into play whenever Rory gets close to winning The Masters. If I'm only laying -116 and Rory isn't even plus money, I'll take the guy playing better and who has proven he can win here.
