The 84th Masters Golf tournament tees off this Thursday. After losing its original slot from April due to Covid-19, the chase for the illustrious Green Jacket goes ahead albeit without the onlooking crowds.
We have sifted through the betting offers from our partner firms and have selected a range of good bets with a specific focus on the each way opportunities.
Fans of the each way betting options are always well treated in the golf department and this renewal of the Augusta classic is no exception.
Firstly, lets take a look at the Masters outright winner markets where some firms are offering some exceptional place offers.
A very competitive market with recent US Open winner Bryson Dechembeau leading most lists (8/1 with William Hill offering 9 places each way)
FIRMS OFFERING THE BEST EACH WAY TERMS
If you’re looking to place an each way bet for the outright winner in The Masters, it definitely pays to shop around!
Here are the best offers as things stand.
William Hill are offering 9 places.
Unibet are offering 7 places.
Bet Victor are offering 6 places.
WHO WILL WIN THE 2020 MASTERS?
BRYSON DECHEMBEAU'S CHANCES
The current market leader is all the rage, leading most bookmakers markets after his amazing US Open win where he was the only participant to finish under par.
However, I have my doubts. His recent form at Augusta is nothing to write home about, having failed to make the top 25 in his last two visits there.
Even more of a concern is his glaring inconsistencies: he’s failed to finish in the top 30 in four of his latest PGA Tour outings and his tendency to not make the fairway from tee-off is also a worry.
A 52.68% driving accuracy is also not Green Jacket material. Better value to be found elsewhere.
GOOD VALUE OUTSIDER BETS
The 2012 US Open winner, Webb Simpson, offers some good value at 33/1 (Bet365, playing 8 places). He is the sort of each way bet that really fits the bill with the current generous place offers as although he’s not marked for taking trophies, his consistency of getting into the top 10 on PGA tour events is impressive.
He was also in contention in the recent US Open where he finished a very respectable eighth and he has some Augusta form, finishing 5th at the 2018 event.
With the exception of his infamous collapse at the 12th hole in the 2016 renewal where he appeared booked to win his first ever Green Jacket, the three times major winner and former ranked world number one has an excellent record at Augusta. Outstanding value with at 60/1 (Bet365, paying 8 places).
This talented South Korean holds a lot of appeal, as demonstrated by his President’s Cup performance last year and he recently broke his PGA tour title duck, winning the Honda Classic.
Looks an interesting debutant entry at 80/1 (Bet365, Betfred)
if you’re looking for a super big outsider with a whopping price, look no further than Justin Harding, who finished 12th on his Masters debut last year. His speciality is long putting and could be a very entertaining punt at 300/1 (Betfair, Paddy Power, Boylesports) if he improves on last year’s run.
FIRST ROUND LEADER
Those more interested in the sprinters than the marathon runners should head to Betfair or Paddy Power who are offering generous place terms of 1-8 in the First Round Leader markets.
One of the leading UK hopes, Paul Casey, has a good record of coming fast out of the blocks on the PGA Tour in general, often in the top 10 on the first day.
50/1 (Betfair, Paddy Power paying 8 places)
TOP ENGLISH PLAYER
Another interesting market to delve into.
Current best prices as follows:
Tyrell Hatton 7/2 (Paddy Power)
Tommy Fleetwood 5/1 (Paddy Power)
Paul Casey 13/2 (Paddy Power)
Tommy Fleetwood probably has the best Masters’ form performance out of these, having registered near or around the top 10 in the last two renewals and therefore looks good value at 5/1 with Paddy Power.
PLAYERS TO MISS THE CUT
This final market doesn’t hold much value in the vast majority of these prices but at 13/2 (Betfair, Paddy Power), the notion that Bryson Dechambeau’s cavalier approach may land him in trouble on Augusta’s greens, offers an interesting wager for those with doubts about the current market leader!
