10K BETS: The Master’s Betting Preview

Gambling Golf

Ladies and Gentleman, the time has finally come. A tradition unlike any other, The Masters is the best golf tournament of the year and it’s not really close. That’s right it’s Masters Week in Augusta, Georgia!

Augusta National Golf Club is a par 72 tipping out at just a hair over 7500 yards. Augusta rewards crafty golfers that show the ability to hit specific shots when necessary which distinguishes themselves from other golf courses.

This week we’ll be attacking golfers that we find are undervalued, especially a couple of those apart of LIV Golf. I love this tournament from a betting perspective because there’s plenty of middle of the pack golfers that I find are not getting the respect they deserve.

SammyStats10k Best Bets

Per usual, we’re going with 6 golfers in some fashion this week at Augusta National.

Cam Smith Outright Winner (+5500) Top 20 (+160)

The first horse we are backing this week is Cam Smith. This line doesn’t really add up to me. Cam is arguably the best putter in golf which is absolutely crucial at Augusta. Smith has also had 4 top 20 finishes at Augusta National in his 6 total starts. On top of that, Cam is no stranger in playing a high level of golf during Majors. He won the Open in 2022 and had a top 20 finish in both last years Masters and the US Open. I will gladly hop on Smith at this number.

Dustin Johnson Outright Winner (+4500) Top 30 (-150)

The next horse were going after this week is former Masters champion Dustin Johnson. I feel this is another number that seems a bit egregious for a player of DJ’s caliber. Dustin has proven he can have success around Augusta National and his length is a big reason. DJ is able to get away with more 3 woods and long irons for accuracy than a majority of the field, which increases his stock this week. I also feel the LIV guys are strongly undervalued this week. During last year’s Masters, 4 finished in the top 5. I have no qualms taking DJ here this week.

Brooks Koepka Outright Winner (+2200) Top 20 (-120)

What more needs to be said about Major season and Brooks Koepka? The guy simply just shows up when it matters. Brooks has 5 majors all in the last 6 years and battled it out with Rahm last year coming up just a hair short. Brooks didn’t let that stop him as he went ahead and won his next major start at the PGA Championship. BK is still looking for his green jacket and I won’t miss out on him if he does. Feed me Koepka all day long.

Tiger Woods to Miss The Cut at The Masters (-130)

Yes, this is likely not a bet that too many people can get behind and I understand that fully. We all want the best for Tiger Woods but the reality of the situation is that he’s in constant pain. He’s lost his game and that’s totally understandable at his age along with all his back and knee surgeries. I feel like most bets will be for Tiger to make the cut but I just don’t see it going well for him this week.

Per usual, many questions arise when Tiger tees it up. Can his body handle the slopes of Augusta National? How in form is his golf game with the lack of professional tournament starts? Has he improved from his WD from the Genesis earlier in the season? Too many questions for me here with Tiger Woods. Will gladly pay a little juice for a missed cut this week.

Jon Rahm Outright Winner (+1200) Top 10 (+115)

Jon Rahm is, in my opinion, still the best golfer in the world and is the defending champion of the tournament. Rahm has all the shots and all the tools in his bag to repeat here at the Masters. I don’t see a world that Rahm isn’t in the hunt come Sunday at Augusta and at 12/1 for an outright victory and +115 for a Top 10 I feel very confident that these will have a good shot at winning. If Jon Rahm has his best stuff this week he will be very hard to beat. His game works so well at Augusta, as shown last season.

Joaquin Niemann Outright Winner (+2800) Top 30 (-175)

Lastly, we are going with Juaco this week. Niemann has had the best season so far out of any LIV player with 4 total wins between the LIV Tour and the DP World Tour. He will likely say his game is in the best shape it’s ever been. I like Niemann a lot this week at this number. I think he he’ll be able to surprise some people with his elevated play at The Masters and I have no doubts a top 30 finish is very much in the cards for Niemann. Sprinkle a winner and hope to cash at 28:1.

As always, Enjoy the 2024 Masters Tournament & always wager responsibly.
