US Masters Practice rounds are over today and the most heated rounds are right around the corner, which keeps golf bettors’ levels of excitement quite high.
The US Masters Tournament is one of the most important golf championships, which takes place in April every year. Unlike the other major golf tournaments, the Masters is always happening at the same site – Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.
The last time when a debutant won the Masters was 35 years ago when Fuzzy “fried chicken” Zoeller beat Tom Watson and Ed Sneed in a play-off. However, according to Paddy Power, there are six players this year, who might be able to turn the odds in their favor and delight the golf fans that bet on sports in the USA.
Day is given 16/1 chances to put on the desired green jacket this year, after he finished T2 and third in his last two US Masters.
He won a total of around $16 million so far, thanks to two wins and six runner-ups Stateside, but he still hasn’t had a breakthrough in the Majors’ club.
Some experts expected Jason to win last year, but he finished third to Adam Scott, so he is currently fourth in the World rankings after he won the WGC Accenture World Matchplay title earlier this year.
Day has a real chance again and Paddy Power bookmaker gives him good odds for performing great at the Sunday’s Round 4.
Garcia’s odds are 22/1 for this year’s Masters. He entered the golf scene as an amateur in 1999. He has the potential to be among the legendary players, but so far he hasn’t won a Major tournament.
It seems that Garcia’s biggest problem is his own self, namely his temper when things don’t happen according to his own plan.
Despite some of his character features he was T12 after Bubba Watson in 2012 and T8 to Adam Scott in 2013, so this year might be his lucky one as he is in excellent shape.
Kuchar has the same odds as Garcia – 22/1. He lost to Jones in Texas, but his overall good performance places him among the potential winners of the Masters’ title.
US Masters Tournament that is taking place this week is promising a lot of emotions and couple potential winners
• It is one of the most important golf championships
• It is always taking place at the same location
• The last time when a debutant won the Masters was 35 years ago
Kuchar is one of the players with the steadiest performance on the Tour with six Top 10s in the wrap-around season.
Surely this year’s Masters is quite important for his career, due to the fact that he might get the nickname “best player never to win a Major”, if he doesn’t nail it.
With a T3 and 8th finish in the last two years, the situation might be different if he reaches a winning position.
Johnson has 25/1 odds to win the Masters, as his latest performance is relatively ok. He signed off with his second-worst round ever (80) just a week before the start of the Masters, which is probably not the best sign.
He was doing pretty well with five Top 10 finishes before his Houston disaster. Johnson was top of the leaderboard in Augusta last year, but then he dropped six shots in four holes and eventually finished T13.
Hopefully, he has put his Houston drama behind and perform at his best, so that he’ll rise his chances to win his first Major.
Rose’s chances are estimated at 28/1. His previous performances in the last three years were not all that impressive as he finished 11th, 8th and 25th.
He had medical problems with his shoulder and has played only two events this season as opposed to last year when he became England’s first Major winner since Nick Faldo (1996).
If he manages to win this week he will make very happy numerous fans and bettors who placed their wagers on him at online sportsbooks in US and around the world.
Snedeker’s chance are evaluated at 33/1 and before this year’s Masters, he has performed good in various tournaments like Juan Mata and the 2012 Fed Ex Championship.
He was at T15, T19 and T6 in Augusta in the past three seasons, and finished T8 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on his last start, so hopefully this year will be his time to shine.
