March Madness ends, and The Masters begins. Another exciting and highly anticipated tournament.
It wouldn't be a Masters weekend without some betting picks. If you need some pre-requisite betting info, take a look at my blog from two years ago. If not, let's get right into it. Additionally, shoutout to my buddy Seamus, who provided the heat and insight behind these picks.
As a prerequisite, I love to sprinkle my units across the board, and I'll be making all of the plays below. Before we get to winners, here are some of my favorite props of the weekend.
My Masters Board
Tiger Woods Top 10 (+500)
Tiger Woods to Make Cut (-120)
Will there be a hole-in-one (-160)
Bubba Watson Top Left Handed Finisher (+185)
Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Rory McIlroy all Top-40 Parlay (+157)
Hideki Matsuyama to miss the cut (+240)
Max Homa top-30 finish (+145)

Best Bets and Odds
My Pick: Scottie Scheffler (+1200)
Scottie has been GOOD. Top 20 in four of the last five majors he's played in. He is due for sure. He has won 3 events this past couple months and is coming into the tournament at the right time. Also, his caddie? Ted Scott. He knows Augusta very well, as he caddied for Bubba Watson for each of his Masters wins.
Safe Pick: Cam Smith (+1400)
The runner up in 2020, he also was in the top 5 back in 2018. A top tier putter and has a great short game, which is essential in Augusta, I like his +1400 odds. He's confident and his game is ready.
Other Safe Bets:
Justin Thomas (+800)
Jon Rahm (+1000)
Dustin Johnson (+1200)
Brooks Koepka (+1400)
Jordan Spieth (+1800)
Dark Horses: Tony Finau (+4000)
Three top-tens in four years at Augusta, not bad! He has some closing issues, and hasn't played great in 2022, but he's got the game to compete. People forget he was in the final group for Tiger back in 2019. He finished 5th shooting even-par 72, so he can handle the big moments for sure.
A Responsible Wager Longshot: Tiger Woods (+5000)
I mean, come on, you literally have to. If Tiger says he feels good and he thinks he can win, then you would be a mad man not betting on him.
