I’ve seen golf tipster chucking 5pt win only bets onto their US Masters golf betting tips. Calm the **** down dickheads!
Yes, it’s the biggest event of the season but with that comes extra scrutiny from the bookmakers to get their prices right. SkyBet has gone 11 places on EW bets. Sounds amazing. It’s not.
The first player they can boast top price on is Marc Leishman at 175/1 and he’s been playing hopeless. All they’ve done is cut their odds to allow for the extra places. Don’t be duped.
I’ve been tipping on the US Masters for over 10 years now and have always taken the same approach. Course form is key. It’s worked for me time and time again. I have no reason to change that mindset despite the lack of fans (I mean patrons) at Augusta this week.
So first up is a win only bet on Bubba Watson. The only player in the field to win this title twice in the past 10 years. Watson’s ability to hit the ball a long way and shape it in both directions has been paramount in his success here down the years.
The 2012 and 2014 champion has played well here the previous two seasons (T12 – T5) and appears to have found form at just the right time. Watson finished T7 in the CJ Cup and T4 in the Zozo Championship in his last two starts.
Throughout his career, Watson has flourished at certain courses. A 3-time winner at TPC River Highlands, 3 wins at Riviera and hopefully adding a 3rd Green Jacket to his wardrobe this weekend. Simple!
Yes, some bookies are offering lots of places but EW at 28/1 doesn’t work for me. I’d rather stick a tenner on him to win using the more generous odds on the exchange. SBK use those odds from smarkets in their new bookmaker app. Take advantage of their SIGN UP OFFER if you haven’t yet joined.
At first glance, my final outright golf betting tip from the US Masters looks ludicrous. For Jordan Spieth has been hitting it “off the planet” for a while now. There have been hints of a turnaround in form. Last week he popped up at the top of the leaderboard, albeit briefly in Round 1.
At the CJ Cup, his weekend rounds of 69 67 were beaten by only 3 players. T9 at Pebble Beach, T10 at Colonial and T13 at the Memorial suggest he can pull something out of the bag this week.
Spieth has a sensational record at Augusta. A scoring average of 70.17 which when compared to some of the market leaders, you realise just how incredible it is: DJ (71.5), Koepka (71.5), Mcilroy (71.52), Thomas (72.0), DeChambeau (72.37).
I accumulated the scores in the past 5 seasons for the US Masters and here is what I discovered.
DJ – 29
Fowler – 22
Again Spieth dominates the rest and that, despite his woeful form is the reason I’m willing to chuck a fiver at him EW. I’m one for getting the best odds, so whilst more places are on offer, I’m happy with the 66/1 and 7 Places available at 888Sport.
