The Masters – 12/1 Thomas To Bloom At Augusta


The Masters is back in its usual slot, the Azaleas are in bloom and there are even some patrons allowed back on to the hallowed grounds of Augusta National.

It really is a Carlsberg kind of week for golf fans!

We’ve already brought you our top outside bets this week, which you can check out below.

And now it’s time for our headline selections!

Our Top Odds Pick – Justin Thomas – 12/1 at BetVictor

Justin Thomas to win the Masters

Softer conditions saw Dustin Johnson post the highest winning score of all time last November.

However, Augusta is set to fight back this time around, with early reports of a much firmer and faster course.

Less forgiving greens will require accurate iron play, and that should suit Justin Thomas down to the ground.

Thomas was also the best tee-to-green player at Sawgrass three weeks ago, as he swept to a scintillating Players Championship victory.

And that win did not come out of the blue, as it was his fifth top-five finish in his last ten tournaments.

Thomas has also improved his final position every time he has competed at Augusta, with his last five finishing spots reading 39-22-17-12-4.

And we reckon he has his best chance yet of securing that famous Green Jacket.

Our Extra Pick – Jon Rahm – 12/1 at bet365

Jon Rahm to win the Masters

As long as he can get some kip this week, new father Jon Rahm should be set for a serious tilt at his first Major Championship.

The World Number 3 ticks all the boxes ahead of his fifth trip to Augusta, having finished in the top 10 in each of the past three years.

And no one has secured as many as Rahm’s seven top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour this season.

He’s also 14th in strokes gained on approach shots this campaign, which bodes well as he looks to tame a fast and firm Augusta National.

Free from the fear that his Missus might go into labour any minute, a relaxed Rahm could spell trouble for the opposition.

And as brand-new father Danny Willett proved at the 2016 Masters, when life couldn’t be better off the course, that often translates onto it!
