It’s here, the first Major of the year, and in most peoples opinion the best! The field is of the highest quality we have ever seen and it’s also one of the most open, in terms of betting especially. The favourites are priced around 7/1 and there’s plenty of value to be had in our expert tips and preview.
Adam Scott has made an enormous recovery from being out of form 6 months ago and a new putter weighing heavy on his mind. He cast those doubts aside earlier this season with great performances and wins against the worlds top players. Winner of the green jacket in 2014 after a few missed chances, the Aussie is primed to let loose and take his 2nd Masters title. Scott sits on top of the average scoring chart at par 5’s and this is where so many birdies are rewarded around Augusta. With confidence high he’s my main pick to upset to Big 3 and make the running at a nice price.
Justin Rose is one of the most patient players about, and that will sit well this weekend. He missed 21 consecutive cuts at the start of his career and only won his first major on the 37th attempt. A second place here with a wrist injury show that he can conquer the course and it will be no surprise to see him in contention on the Sunday afternoon. His consistency will play a big part at Augusta and I expect him to hover in the top 20 the first few days before firing on the final round. Another player who is top 3 in par 5 scores he will be able to make the most of the longer holes with birdie attempts. Get the Englishman at 25/1 with BetVictor.
Jimmy Walker has the perfect game to suit the angles of Augusta, but can he play himself in to form and make a case for the green jacket? He’s a big price and a lively outsider in my books. Plenty of wins on the PGA tour in recent years and he can compete with the best when on his game. His right to left high fade should suit the course and I like his chances this week. Walker often leaves his best until the final round, so if he’s in the mix on Sunday be quietly confident.
Jamie Donaldson was hitting form when he had a domestic accident a few months ago. I was keeping an eye out for him back then and that stalled his chances for success, but he’s come back very well and recently has been finding his feet on the tour. At a massive 200/1 I can’t pass him by without a few quid each way.

Other Markets & Tips
TOP DEBUTANT whis a very hot market this year with plenty of talent vying for potential wins and top spots. Sitting at the head of the pile is the Spaniard Rafa Cabrera Bello. The man from the Canary Islands has been in great form in recent weeks, with an unexpected semi final place in the matchplay where he played some stunning golf, and then last weekend in Houston he shot a 65 on the Sunday to slice through the field and finish a very respectable 4th place. His game is obviously in a good place and he will relish his debut at Augusta
TOP ASIA is always a fairly small market and this year is no different. There are only 6 players from the far east and each way at 2 places contains some big value. Anirban Lahiri is having a successful season so far and is playing consistently in the USPGA tour. Conditions will suit his game and the fact he only has 5 other players to beat is a big plus. His debut last year saw him make the cut and that will have given him experience and confidence going in to Thursday tee off. At 8/1 for 2 places it’s a really nice looking bet.
