All odds as of April seventh at DraftKings
Jon Rahm has completed T7, T9, and 4th in his final three Masters tournaments, posting -10, -10, and -11 scores. The Spaniard can be taking part in very effectively as of late, with seven prime ten finishes in his final 9 begins.
Rahm doesn’t have a serious victory below his belt, however I believe that is the place the levee breaks.
The opposite wager I’m inserting is Dustin Johnson to be the highest previous champion. Since 2015, DJ has been so regular at Augusta, logging 5 straight prime ten finishes, three of which have been prime 5 finishes.
Together with his snafu over being caught on a sizzling mic utilizing a homosexual slur, and the passing of his grandfather firmly within the rear-view, this looks as if the week Thomas lastly captures his first Inexperienced Jacket.
He’s improved his standing every time he’s performed within the occasion at Augusta Nationwide, and at present sits inside the highest 30 in GIR on Tour, in addition to 1st in birdies per spherical – two stats essential to rivalry on the Masters.
One of many gamers i’m fortunately fading this week is fiery Brit, Tyrrell Hatton. Though Hatton has been identified to catch fireplace and win any given week, the final 4 cuts he’s missed got here on the Gamers Championship, 2020 Masters, US Open and the PGA Championship.

With such a robust development backing up the choice, choose Hatton to overlook the lower at +200 looks as if a sensible play, given his lack of success on the largest occasions.
I wouldn’t hassle with DeChambeau in a top-five or top-ten prop. If he’s not in near-perfect kind, one other T-34 is simply as doubtless as a top-five end. However selecting a champion is about believable upside, and – with the doable exception of DJ at his greatest – nobody’s upside at Augusta is larger than Bryson’s.
He’s going to assault all 4 par 5s each likelihood he will get and could have a number of appears to be like at birdie if he’s in kind.

High Mexican is a head-to-head duel between Ancer and Carlos Ortiz. The latter received the Vivint Houston Open final November, however has missed the lower in two of his final 4 and will likely be taking part in Augusta for the primary time. Ancer completed T13 right here in November, and that was with a +4 aberration within the closing spherical. He’s the higher golfer and has extra related expertise. This can be a good value.
JT completed 4th in 2020, and has made the lower in each begin at Augusta Nationwide. This can be a match the place huge names are inclined to flourish, and I really feel JT is poised for his 2nd main win. Thomas has improved in each Masters from 2016-2020 (T39, T22, T17, T12, 4) and I see that development persevering with this weekend.
Matsuyama enters the match with a great deal of success and expertise on the Masters, and is in competitors with simply 3 different Asian gamers within the match. He’s completed within the prime 20 5 of his final 6 begins at Augusta, and a couple of of these finishes have been within the prime 10. I like the worth with Hideki’s previous success and a small area for this prop.
Bryson DeChambeau has been on the prime of his recreation for a very good a part of the 2021 PGA Tour season. He leads the Tour in Driving Distance, Strokes Gained: Off the Tee, Strokes Gained: Tee to Inexperienced and Scoring Common.
He says he has a extra calculated method this 12 months after nearly lacking the lower 5 months in the past at Augusta. If he can roll the rock effectively, Bryson will likely be preventing for his first inexperienced jacket come Sunday.

Matthew Fitzpatrick’s greatest end on the Masters was again in 2016 the place he completed tied-seventh. He has been in glorious kind, not too long ago posting 4 High 15’s in his final 5 begins.
Fitzpatrick takes on Tyrrell Hatton this week, who has struggled at greater occasions in North America. Hatton missed the lower on the Masters in November posting, scores of 73 and 74. Circumstances will likely be harder this week, which leads me to imagine Fitzpatrick will likely be to complete forward of his fellow Englishman with ease.
Rahm was tied in seventh right here simply 5 months in the past and has now completed within the top-10 in every of his previous three Masters with a tied-ninth end in 2019 and fourth-place end in 2018. Within the six occasions he’s participated in since in 2021, he’s completed ninth or higher in 4, highlighted by a fifth place end on the Genesis Invitational.
Solely Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau had extra top-10 finishes than Rahm in 2020 and Rahm’s seven top-10s within the 2021 season are two greater than anybody else on tour.
Within the 2021 season he additionally ranks third and second in strokes gained off-the-tee and strokes gained tee-to-green respectively.
I’m going for the sentimental favourite and one of many prime contenders and can again Rahm for the outright win.
