US Masters 2014 Betting tips, First Round Leader


Not long until we tee off in the US Masters 2014, first tee off in 12.45pm Thursday afternoon and with that in mind, now is the time to get those first round leader tips on to make sure you don’t miss out!

3 players below all at reasonable each way prices (will pay out at ¼ of the odds for top 5 after the first round), having checked the weather for the last few days and for Thursday’s first round and it has been a wet build up, so length could be a significant advantage in the first round; although less so in the remainder of the tournament as the weather improves.

I have one selection from the early starters, one late starter and the other tees off late morning.


Patrick Reed- 50/1 EW – William Hill – Open a new William Hill account by clicking this link and get a free £25 bet.

Incredibly impressed with his play this season to date, is on debut but played college golf in area so should have some familiarity with the course,  3 reasons for selecting him in this market-

1.       Lies 3rd in Round 1 scoring average over the last 3 months on the PGA tour

2.       Is tied 4th in Par 5 scoring over the same period (aggressive approach could be rewarded if course still soft after rain).

3.       Plays with McIlroy (3.52 pm tee time in UK) which could be seen by some as a disadvantage, I think this could help Reed as he will not be the focus of the group and can free-wheel a little in comparison to rightful favourite Rory.

Harris English- 60/1 EW – Sporting Bet – Open a new Sporting Bet account by clicking this link and get a ‘Risk Free’ £50 bet.

Another player in tremendous form over the last few months, play’s in the last group out with Westwood and Henley (6.59 pm tee off in UK), with winds expected to be light all day and playing the entire round in warm conditions this could be just the ticket.  2nd in all around ranking with boxes ticked for Par 5 scoring, Par 4 scoring and GIR; a hot start from English should not be unexpected despite his inexperience.

Fred Couples- 100/1 EW – Betfred – Open a new Betfred Account on a mobile device – GET £10 FREE!

A very generous price for ‘Freddie’, often at the sharp end of the Masters over the first 36 holes, before his age and ailing back catch up to him.  Not as long as the young guns but still long enough and has Top 20 finishes in the Masters the last 4 years; that run includes two opening rounds in the 60’s, 68 last year and 66 in 2010.  Vastly experienced and out at 2.24 pm UK time, early enough to have the greens in near perfect condition but late enough so he has some time for his back to warm up.
