2016 Masters Betting Odds

Who’s your pick to win this week? If you are betting on the Masters, here are some things to consider:

To win the Masters you need course knowledge

There have only been two first time Masters participants to win the tournament in their first try, Gene Sarazen in 1935 and Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979. Augusta National has extremely tough green complexes and sides of the fairway that you can’t be on in order to access some of the hole locations. Having said that, players who fall into this category have huge odds and it might be worthwhile to throw a five spot down. Who does this rule out?

Rafa Cabrera Bello – The Spaniard has been on fire lately and has arguably been the hottest player on the planet behind Jason Day heading into this week.

Jim Herman – Sorry Jim, but your celebrity status on tour will only last one week.

Justin Thomas – A talented player who currently sits in 6th place on the FedEx Cup standings, is someone that might make some noise.

Players who have never won a Major

This is one of my favorite categories because we are all waiting for them to get the monkey off their back and win the first one. This list usually has some big names and is a great spot to begin your list. Who are some names to watch?

Dustin Johnson – Once again D.J. makes the list as a player who has never won a major. Johnson is in tremendous form right now and his power will help him get around Augusta National.

Sergio Garcia – Unfortunately for Garcia, he makes this list yet again. Garcia had a nice Florida swing as he never finished worse than a T-18, but his weekend at the Shell Houston Open was forgettable.

Rickie Fowler – This is my pick for the week to finally break through and win his first major. We all know about his high finishes in the major championships a year ago, but the time is now for Rickie.

Major Champions and Past Masters Champions

This is the creme of the crop and the biggest names in the field. We all know that Spieth, Bubba, Rory and Phil will be in it this weekend, but who will win? For starters, there have only been four repeat winners at the Masters and it hasn’t been done since Tiger Woods in 2001 and 2002. Players over 40 also have a slim chance of winning according to the numbers. Mark O’Meara was the last player over the age of 40 to win the Masters when he accomplished the feat in 1998.

Hope these tips help and best of luck out there in the sports betting world! Let us know who you are taking down in the comment section!
