Masters betting options
Masters betting is a difficult field to call, with 92 golfers all battling it out for the top spot. We’ve put together this article to help you decide how to bet this year, whether it be outright or group betting. 92 golfers might seem like a huge amount but the Masters possesses the smallest field out of the majors, giving you a good chance to call the winner at good odds.
Whilst the majority of wagers placed during the Masters will be outright betting on the winner, there is smart money to be made in head-to-head matchup betting, where your man only has to beat one other player rather than the whole field.
72 Hole group betting is another option for those who don’t fancy the longer odds on outright betting. Players are divided into smaller groups by bookmakers and then bettors pick the winner in that group. The odds on all of the golfers are lower than betting to win outright but winning should be easier than picking the eventual winner of a golf tournament.
Sports Interaction are one of the best sites out there for Group and match-up betting. They also offer odds on winning margin, winning score and simply whether we’ll see a hole-in-one at Augusta in 2012.
Most of the bookmakers are offering ¼ odds on a top five finish but Paddy Power have topped that this year offering ¼ odds on the top six places.
Paddy Power are well worth a visit for Masters betting as their Money-back special will refund all losing bets if Tiger Woods secures his fifth Masters title. Given that Tiger goes into Augusta as +450 (9/2) favourite this is a superb betting opportunity, which you can take up here.
Sporting Bet are also paying on six places for their mobile users on the US Masters. For more details and information visit Sporting Bet here.
William Hill are generously priced and therefore one to check out for the Masters. One of our names to look out for, Johnson Wagner, is +15000 (150/1) whilst the player on the move after winning the Shell Houston Open, Hunter Mahan, is priced at +3300 with William Hill. The American already has two PGA tour wins in 2012 and heads to Augusta in great shape.
