The 2022 US Masters starts on Thursday this week and is certainly one of the most wide open Tournaments of recent years.

Our Tips for the Masters will focus on trying to find three players whose odds represent good value particularly given the outstanding each way terms that are on offer from some of the leading bookmakers. We will be looking mostly at Boylesports paying 11 places , Paddy Power 10 places and William Hill 9 places all at ⅕ of the odds for our bets.

It’s really important to remember that form around Augusta is critically important as the US Masters is played here every year and the elite of the world’s golfers tend to excel around this course.

In fact eight of the last 10 Masters winners were ranked in the World’s Top 20 whilst the other two winners Patrick Reed and Hideki Matsuyama were ranked 24th and 25th respectively.

The course consistency factor is borne out by the fact that seven of the last ten Champions had posted a previous top 10 finish at Augusta.

And being in good current form is massively important as all of the last ten winners of the Masters had finished in the Top 30 in at least one of their two previous tournaments.

Driving distance counts for more at Augusta than it does at an average US PGA Tour event whereas accuracy is not quite so important.

Our 1st Masters Tip is Paul Casey currently ranked 25 in the world rankings and a very impressive third place at the Players Championship two weeks ago. Casey doesn’t win too often but is regularly placed and in contention in the big events. Casey was T26th in the 2021 Masters but finished in the Top 6 including ties 2015/2016/2017 . At odds of 50/1 for 10 places with Paddy Power, Casey should give backers a very good run for their bet.

Our next 2022 US Masters selection is South African Louis Oosthuizen who has been performing at the highest level for a long time. Oosthuizen knows what it takes to win a Major and is currently the World No.15 golfer. Recently Louis finished 30th in the Honda Open and 14th in the Phoenix Open just a week earlier. Louis was runner up in the 2012 Masters and has an amazing seven Top 30 finishes at Augusta since.

Odds of 40/1 for Oosthuizen with Paddy Power paying 10 places represents great value.

Corey Connors is our final pick to win the 2022 Masters and the in form Canadian is now in the form of his life with a 3rd place at the WGC World Matchplay last week and a strong final round 67 in this week’s Valero Open. The 30 year old will be making just his fifth Masters appearance as a pro but has finished Top 10 in the last two years !

40/1 with Paddy Power for 10 places again represents top value as Connors attempts to step up on his 2021 8th place finish.

Previous Tips

2021 Masters Tips [Expired]

The 2021 US Masters is back to its usual slot in early April and once again promises to be an open and entertaining event. The bookies are once again doing their best to give us all a chance with Paddy Power, Betfair and Boylesports offering 10 Places whilst Skybet have gone even further by offering each way odds of ⅕ for an amazing 11 Places!

The 84th edition of the Masters is very competitive despite Dustin Johnson winning the November 2020 Tournament by five shots the World No.1 has been far from his best since then. Johnson finished 8th at Riviera and pulled out of last weekend’s Texas Valero competition to get his game straightened out for this week but is clearly not going into the Masters with the form he had prior to the November tournament. Johnson is a worthy favourite and should contend but I do feel that there are better value options. 

As of now the form player is Jordan Speith who has capped a remarkable return to form by winning the Texas Open yesterday. Speith has had problems with the Driver and was in big danger of dropping out of the World Top 100 in February before finishing T4th in the Phoenix Open and following that with a T3th at Pebble Beach and a T4th in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Speith of course also has an amazing US Masters record having won in 2015 and finishing 2nd either side of that win. However, Speith is now sharing 2nd Favourite status with Bryson DeChambeau and best odds of 12/1 reflect the fact that bookies have already got his chance fully covered. 

Another player in fantastic form right now is DeChambeau and the enigmatic World No.5 went into the November Masters as favourite only to disappoint with a T34th finish. Bryson’s win in the Arnold Palmer Invitational and 3rd place finish in the Players Championship represents top form and a strong performance can be anticipated. 

Going head to head with DeChambeau in both those Tournaments was of course Lee Westwood and there would be no more popular winner this side of the Atlantic than the 48-year-old who has been playing some of the best golf of his career recently. Westwood has twice finished runner up at Augusta and at odds of 33/1 might just give his backers a good run for their money. 

However, Westwood just fails to make into onto our shortlist for this week which is as follows : 

Each Way Tips For 2021 US Masters

1 Point Each Way Justin Thomas 

Brilliant winner of The Players Championship, Thomas has hit top form at just the right time. His 4th place finish at the November Masters was his best Augusta performance so far and Thomas looks like he is primed for his best chance yet to don the green jacket. Take the 12/1 each way with 9 Places at William Hill.

1 Point Each Way Patrick Reed 

Maybe not the most popular choice but Reed does win regularly including the Farmers Open already this year and won the Masters as recently as 2018 . His 10th Place finish at the November Masters once again showed his liking for Augusta and at odds of 28/1 with Paddy Power and Betfair paying 10 Places he has an excellent chance.

1 Point Each Way Sungjae Im 

The ultra-consistent Im took a share of second place on his Masters debut last year and is set for another big performance. At odds of 35/1 each way paying 10 Places at Paddy Power and Betfair Im is a very solid bet in a very open Masters renewal. Im has outstanding talent and with youth on his side will become a prolific winner on Tour 

1 Point Each Way Colin Morikawa 

Already a major winner and followed that up with the WGC Workday Championship last month Morikawa is an exceptional all-round golfer. Finished in a T44th on his Masters debut in November but can be expected to improve on his return. Available at 30/1 each way with William Hill for 9 Places  

2020 Masters Tips [Expired]

It certainly seems very strange that the US Masters is being held in the middle of November but the anticipation and excitement remain as high as ever for one of the great sporting and betting events of the year. It will be difficult to match the epic glory of Tiger Woods comeback Masters victory last year but golf at this level regularly produces moments of enthralling competition and outstanding personal achievement. Our each way tips for the 2020 Masters will take into account the players current form , Masters track record , form in the Major golf tournaments and expected weather conditions.  

Woods Masters win in 2019 was part of the current sequence of 10 consecutive American wins in US based Majors in a row, something which has not happened for almost fifty years. The cream rises to the top at Augusta and the winner of the US Masters is generally found amongst the world’s elite with eight out of the last 10 winners having been ranked 16 or higher going into the tournament . The vast majority of the world top ranked players are American with only Jon Rahm , Tyrell Hatton , Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott featuring in the Top15 from outside the US.   

Course form is of course particularly important at Augusta National as the Masters is played here every year and many players have particularly outstanding form here. We have summarised the form and chances of some of the leading contenders below : 

 

Dustin Johnson

Current World No.1 has great form at Augusta including joint 2nd in 2019 , recently ill with Covid19 but showed good return to form in last weekend’s Houston Open. Johnson has been in great form this year with wins in Northern Trust Championship and Travellers Championship. 

Best Odds: 9/1 William Hill 

 

Bryson DeChambeau

2020 US Open winner and 4th in the PGA Championship the highlights in a superb year for the new beefed up Bryson . Will expect to improve on best Masters performance to-date which was a 21st place in 2016  

Best Odds: 8/1 William Hill 

 

Jon Rahm –  current World No.2 and has performed well at Augusta with 4th place in 2018 his best showing. Rahm won the BMW and Memorial Championship this year 

Best Odds: 11/1 William Hill 

 

Rory McIlroy

Has not been at his best since the re-start in mid Summer although was playing exceptionally well at the beginning of the year. Rory enjoyed five consecutive Top10 finishes at Masters until 21st last year. This is the only Major McIlroy still to win

Best Odds: 12/1 William Hill 

 

Justin Thomas

Won the Fedex St Jude Invitational in the summer and been in typically consistently good form recently. Last year’s 12th was Thomas’s highest finish to-date at Augusta.  

Best Odds: 12/1 Paddy Power & Betfair Sportsbook 

 

Xander Schauffele

Won the 2020 Tour Championship and has been consistently very good all year . Finished joint second with Johnson & Koepka at last year’s event. Yet to win a Major

Best Odds: 14/1 Paddy Power & Betfair Sportsbook 

 

Brooks Koepka

Has won 4 Majors and joint 2nd at 2019 Masters improved on his eleventh placed finish from 2017 having missed the 2018 tournament due to injury. Has dropped in rankings and form this year. Koepka showed almost back to his best at the recent Houston Open. 

Best Odds: 16/1 Paddy Power & Betfair Sportsbook 

 

Patrick Cantlay

Recent winner of the ZoZo Championship and finished inside the Masters Top 10 last year. Cantlay undoubtedly has the game to win a Major

Best Odds: 25/1 William Hill 

 

Patrick Reed 

The 2018 winner of the green jacket went on to finish 36th last year and in good consistent form this season although without a win to-date. Reed saves his best form for the major events.   

Best Odds: 28/1 William Hill 

 

Bubba Watson 

A real course specialist with two Masters wins and 12th and 5th in the last two years. The World No.44 has two Top 10 finishes in his last two starts at the ZoZo Championship and the CJ Cup and is a live outsider.

Best Odds: 28/1 William Hill 

 

Tyrell Hatton 

Has been in outstanding form this year with two wins and a host of Top 10 finishes , will relish the opportunity to improve on previous US Master’s form. Good warm up week for Hatton at the Houston Open

Best Odds: 28/1 Paddy Power & Betfair Sportsbook 

 

Adam Scott 

Scott is a previous Masters winner and has an outstanding record at Augusta. The World No.15 won the Genesis Invitational this year and has maintained consistent form all year. 

Best Odds: 50/1 Bet365

 

Tony Finau

With only 1 USPGA Tour win so far Finau has blown some great opportunities but is one of the top players week after week. Last year’s 5th finish at the Masters followed 10th in 2018 and he has eight Top 10 placings in 2020 so far !  Very strong performance in Houston Open preceding the Masters until a poor final round.  

Best Odds: 35/1 Bet365

 

Tiger Woods 

His 2019 Masters win will surely go down as one of the greatest sporting achievements but the fifteen time Major winner has struggled to re-capture anything like his best this year. Perhaps his favourite venue will inspire Tiger again but can not be fancied at current odds. 

Best Odds: 35/1 Bet365 & Betfred 

 

Jason Day 

Another Augusta National course specialist and has found form again at the Houston Open in the week before the main event. Day was 5th in the 2019 Masters renewal and has found the Top10 on five occasions so far in 2020. 

Best Odds: 35/1 Bet365

 

Jordan Speith 

Has an extraordinary record at the US Masters including one win in 2015 and 2 second places but is badly out of form again. Speith is one of the great putters on Tour but still difficult to fancy this year. 

Best Odds: 50/1 Bet365

Best Bookies For 2020 US Masters 

William Hill are guaranteeing to be best odds for the Top10 in the Outright Winner market betting and offering each way terms of ⅕ Odds for 9 Places. 

However some other bookmakers are offering equally competitive odds on some players and better each way odds for example :

Skybet ⅕ odds for 11 Places 

Paddy Power ⅕ odds for 10 Places 

Betfair Sportsbook ⅕ odds for 10 Places 

Bet365 and Betfred ⅕ odd for 8 Places

The each way terms are particularly important here as the place part of the bet represents very good value in many cases.    

Course Profile 

Augusta National is an iconic Par72 golf course for both players and TV viewers and has many famous holes including the tricky par 3 12th where Jordan Speith took a quadruple bogey when leading in 2016 and the par 3 16th where Tiger Woods chipped in from 50ft on his way to victory in 2005. However it is the Par5’s that often determine the outcome.  

At over 7400 yards the course rewards the big hitters and favours those with a right to left shot shape. This is likely to be particularly important this year with the event taking place in November the fairways should be softer than usual. There is not a lot of rough at Augusta and the fairways are pretty wide , the players just have to keep out of the trees that line most of the holes. The greens at Augusta are generally super fast and undulating and therefore very difficult. 

Each Way Tips for 2020 US Masters Outright 

1 point each way Brooks Koepka – outstanding player in Major golf tournaments in recent years. Great record at Augusta including joint 2nd last year. Returned to top form last weekend.

16/1 @ ⅕ Odds Paddy Power & Betfair Sportsbook 

1 point each way Tony Finau  – Consistent form in recent months and great record at Masters with Top10 in last 2 years. Good value at current odds 

33/1 @ ⅕ Odds William Hill

0.5 points each way Francesco Molinari – Major winner, joint 5th last year and has shown good return to form.

110/1 @ ⅕ Odds 8 Places Bet365   or   90/1 @ ⅕ Odds 10 Places Paddy Power & Betfair Sportsbook

US Masters – Top Former Winner

Some of the smaller niche markets for the US Masters often provide great value and this year is no different with the Former Winner market offered by many of the top bookies particularly attractive this year. 

With the withdrawal of Sergio Garcia on Monday there are 16 players in this market see below with current best odds :

As you can see a few of the older generation are quoted at odds of 100/1 or much bigger and widely expected not to make the cut .Augusta nowadays rewards the longest hitters and with rain forecast in the run up to and during the tournament the softer fairways and subsequent lack of run will make it even more difficult for the older players to score well. 

This makes an Each Way bet on the Top Former Winner an interesting opportunity. The leading three players in this market are all playing well and have expectations of winning the tournament outright. 

Bubba Watson is a real Masters specialist and excels at Augusta winning here in 2012 and 2014 and has good recent form to his name with Top10 finishes in the CJ Cup and Zozo Championship. 

Patrick Reed won in 2018 and finished 36th last year when defending the green jacket , Reed has had some good finishes since the new season began and will expect to contend . 

The ultra consistent Australian Adam Scott however is the best value at odds of 11/2 with Paddy Power for 4 places . Scott hasn’t missed the cut in the Masters since 2009 , winning in 2013 and showed his game was in fine shape at last weekend’s Houston Open. 

Tiger Woods and Jordan Speith both excel around Augusta but given their current lack of form they cannot be backed even in this niche market.
