The US Masters is the first of the four major championships in golf to take place each year and is played at the famous Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, USA. It is played in April each year and was won in 2014 by Bubba Watson, his second win in three years (Adam Scott having won in 2013). But who looks best placed to triumph when this fascinating golf tournament rolls around again in 2015? Read on for the most up to date betting odds and our thoughts on which players offer the best betting value.
As the time of writing it is the Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy who is jointly top of the betting priced at best betting odds of 10/1 with BetVictor and others. He only managed to tie for eighth place in the 2014 tournament having finished on level par though he would have been much closer to the winner Watson had he not messed up his second round in which he shot a five over par 77. But really in a field of such class and depth we wouldn’t be tempted by 10/1 for anyone and we wouldn’t recommend backing Rory here.
Tiger Woods – who at the time of writing is recovering from back surgery – is always going to attract a lot of betting interest as punters pine for the day he shows signs he’s getting back to his best. He’s also priced at best betting odds of 10/1 with William Hill, but we feel he has had his day and we won’t be tempted to pile in at that price.
Watson could be well-placed to make it three wins in four years, but at 20/1 we can’t commit at this stage. Instead we are going to plump for youngster Jordan Spieth who was second behind Watson in 2014 and looks to be making good progress towards superstardom. Priced at great betting odds of 33/1 with Sportingbet, he’s our early tip for the 2015 Masters.Google+
