2018 US Masters betting: The favourites

A year ago, Dustin Johnson arrived at Augusta as the biggest US Masters favourite in many years. He then injured his back and didn’t play. It proves anything can happen. Speaking of injured backs, Tiger Woods is recovering and is in good form. A player with Tiger’s experience in winning majors cannot be discounted when fully fit.

Johnson is back stronger this year, as is Jordan Spieth whose last 4 Masters form reads ‘T-2, Win, T-2, T-11’. Justin Thomas, Justin Rose, Bubba Watson and Australia’s Jason Day are all among the top picks.

Our best value bets with Betstar are either Sergio Garcia ($7.00) or Matt Kuchar ($11.00) for a Top 5 finish.
