To miss the cut -110 (draftkings)
It really is a miracle that Tiger is even in the field this week, it will be great to see him tee it up this week but it's very likely that this is more of a ceremonial event for him and it's hard to imagine that he could make the cut. I'll take the odds at about even money that he misses the cut, I've seen it in other shops as high as -165 so -110 provides some good value.
Top 5 +586
Top 10 +246
Brooks is healthier than he has been in a long time and that has to be a scary thing for anyone in the Masters field this week. I bet him outright and I like him top 5 and top 10 as well. His past performances in majors as well as the Masters combined with his solid current form makes him one of my favorite players heading into this week.
Top 5 +475
Top 10 +235
A player whose odds have drifted a little due to his current form but he is one of, if not the best approach player in the PGA and if he gets his irons going and starts sticking pins look out. He can also be very accurate off the tee which is key at Augusta. Another player I also like in the outright market and will bet him top 5 and top 10 too.
Top Aussie +120
Cam Smith has been on fire lately and he odds are definitely a reflection of that, I've seen him listed as low as 15/1 to win the tournamnet. I'm happy to have him in pocket at 40/1 but I will also play him for top Aussie and take my chances against the likes of Leishman, Day, and Adam Scott. He is in the best current form of those players and with his ball striking, superb putting, and solid record here at Augusta he could very easily be putting on the green jacket at the end of the week.
Top Amateur +170
A fascinating talent who has received praise from Collin Morikawa and performed well at the Sony Open on the PGA Tour back in January. He is soon to turn pro and is said to be the next great golfer to come out of Japan. He is a very talented golfer who can shape the ball both ways and has a strong short game.
Top 10 +175
A player I would have liked to have picked off at close to 40/1 before he went on a crazy winning streak. He has a great track record at Augusta and comes in as the number 1 golfer in the world. He has performed well in all of the majors he's been in so far and I think he can continue that this week.
Top 30 +250
An up and coming player on the tour, MacIntyre is a Scottish golfer who is well known in Europe and has some real buzz about him. He was T12 at the Masters last year and T8 at the Open Championship. +250 seems like great value on a golfer who is in pretty good form and has shown success both at this course and in majors overall.
-150 ov Lee Westwood
As stated above I really like MacIntyre this week and Lee Westwood couldn't be in much worse of form. He's missed the cut in two of his last three events and at age 48 is on the backend of his career. A player that many thought would for sure win a major never had that come to fruition. He had a new spark of form last year when he went on a nice run but even last year he was cut at the Masters. This year he has yet to post a finish above 40th and has struggled to make the cut in the majority of his tournament outings this year. I'll take the young up and comer over Westwood even if the juice is a little high.
+100 ov Tony Finau
Finau is definitely a horse for course here but his recent form is really hard to ignore. Usually I would recommend a top 10 or 20 bet on top ten Tony but I just can't ignore how badly he's played so far this year. On the other hand Adam Scott is really rounding into form and he has also had tremendous success on this course in the past and is a former Masters champion. At even money I'll fade Tony here and back Scott against him.
