Jordan Spieth broke a winless drought from July 2017 (the Open Championship) with a win last weekend at the Valero Texas Open on December 1st.
He is now the second choice (11/1) on the Odds board to win this week’s Masters. That in itself is really remarkable when you consider that he was almost ready to drop out of the OWGR Top 100 a little over two months ago.
World Champion No. 1 and defending champion Dustin Johnson (9/1) is the favorite and will try to be only the fourth player to ever win a Masters in a row (Tiger Woods 2002 and 2003, Nick Faldo 1989 and 1990, and Jack Nicklaus 1965 and 1966)).
Bryson DeChambeau (12/1 ) appears to be cheaper than last year when he had single-digit odds, but he has also yet to score a top 20 in four appearances at Augusta. Justin Thomas (12/1) recently won the Players Championship and improved in every Masters appearance. A T-4 last fall was his best retirement here. Here are the best bets for the Masters this weekend.
A few weeks ago, Rahm encouraged people not to bet him for the Masters as he and his wife Kelley were expecting their first child. Their baby, Kepa, was born early Sunday morning and Rahm is now expected to make his way to Augusta to try and win his first major.
Rahm made some of his usual difficult putts in match play and was the only top-manned group player to advance to the weekend tournament before being eliminated in the quarterfinals by Scottie Scheffler. Three direct top 10 finishes in Augusta should be an indicator that he is likely to be a player for victory next Sunday.
McIlroy is in the OWGR top 10 for the first time since 2018, his last Victory was in November 2019 at the WGC-HSBC Champions. He doesn’t play badly, but he doesn’t play like the boy who had four big championship wins at the age of 25.
McIlroy is still one of the world’s greatest players, but the iron game is put-or-miss putting become shaky. But he never gives up in Augusta, as was proven last year. After shooting an opening round of 75, he shot 14-under over the final 54 holes. They still feel like he’ll get that green jacket at some point.
Koepka returned to his victories for the first time since summer 2019 with a win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February. He then underwent right knee surgery on March 16 to address a kneecap dislocation and ligament damage and has not played an event since.
Betting him is a risky proposition as this is less than his first start one month after knee surgery. However, this is an attractive price for a player who has won four majors in the last four years.
Finau has seven top 10 or better in his last 11 majors, including a T-4 at the PGA and a T- 8 at the US Open in 2020. He has no weaknesses in his game, but he never has all aspects in his sights at the same time.
The Australian mullet man has two top 5 finishes here in just four appearances . Smith became the first player in Masters history to shoot all four rounds back in the ’60s, and still lost five strokes to Dustin Johnson.
I finished T-2 here on his debut last year. I’m currently number 6 on the tour for SG: Off-The-Tee and number 8 for driving accuracy.
The 2013 champion just made 11 cuts here in Augusta. This year his driver was terrible as he lost nearly 0.75 shots per lap from the tee, but he shot three out of four laps the last time in the 1960s on a normally difficult PGA National course at the Honda Classic.
