2017 Masters Betting Tips PT 1- By A.J. Ryder on February 21, 2017 19:47 GMT
The 2017 Masters at Augusta National Golf Course is nearly upon us and this represents one of the most popular golf events on the planet – both for the spectatators and for the wagering public as well. There is a lot to like about how this iteration of the tournament appears to be shaping up and many of us are looking forward to a tournament that could be an absolute classic.
Taking a look at the bookmakers odds for this famous clash in Georgia, we have five contenders all priced at below or around low double-digits to secure the coveted green jacket.
As we head into the tournament it appears as though Jordan Spieth is getting the edge from the bookmakers to pull off the dramatic victory here. The bookmakers have him trading around a 6/1 margin at the time of this writing and those odds are coming lower by the day as the volume for this particular tournament is beginning to pick up steam as we are just over 5 weeks away from the start of play.
The best price you will find anywhere currently on Spieth is a 7/1 shout.
Dustin Johnson is trading as the clear second choice and he can be backed around a 9/1 margin right now with most major bookmakers. This comes on the heels of some quality performances as of late and you can bank on him being able to handle the pressure on the big stage like this as the American continues to go from strength to strength on the golf course.
A few bookmakers have Dustin Johnson priced as low as a 6/1 listing.
