US Masters 2014 Betting Tips & Predictions- Editor’s Long Shots- Can’t believe it’s the Masters this week, fantastic! Trying to take advantage of some early prices with this piece; some big prices on some players with potential for EW or Top 10 finishes. Our full preview will hopefully be up tonight but let this one wet your appetite.
LADBROKES SPECIAL – Ladbrokes are running a great deal for this year’s Masters, if any European Win’s get money back on EVERY other player! Not bad huh – SIGN UP HERE
Selections below are price plays, on players I have been watching over the last few months that I believe have got a suitable game for the course, shown reasonable recent form combined with a little course knowledge to sneak us a Top 10 at least – if any of them hit we will turn a profit even if we go on the EW and Top 10 with a level stake. With Tiger missing and some questionable form from some other big names, an early punt on the 3 below may well pay dividends.
Jamie Donaldson – EW@ 125/1 and Top 10@ 10/1 – Ladbrokes – Open a new Ladbrokes account by clicking this link, and get a £50 free bet!
Leader of the early Race to Dubai rankings, courtesy of a tied second in the recent Cadillac Championship and top 20’s in Omega Dubai Desert Classic & Volvo Golf Champions. Has gone off the boil in the last couple of events stateside but not too concerned about that, he has had a couple of weeks so should be well prepared and rested; only missed the cut by 1 here last year on debut. Ranks inside the Top 50 on European tour statistics over the last few months in all key attributes required for Masters success, Driving distance, GIR, scrambling and putting.
Branden Grace – EW@ 200/1 and Top 10@ 14/1 – William Hill – Open a new William Hill account by clicking this link and get a free £25 bet.
Opened up with a horrid 78 on debut here last year BUT still finished Top 20 with fine rounds of 70, 71 and 69 to close the event, horrid recent form in the states (3 straight MC’s) but much like Donaldson above his playing style should really suit the course. He is top 50 in the same categories as Donaldson above on the European tour (excluding scrambling, 69th), but it’s really that performance last year which makes me think he could just be one of those Masters specialists in the future. If he can start better than last year we could well be in business for a top 10 minimum come the back 9 on Sunday.
Scott Stallings – EW@ 250/1 and Top 10@ 20/1 – Ladbrokes – Open a new Ladbrokes account by clicking this link, and get a £50 free bet!
One thing to do when looking at Stallings recent form IGNORE IT! This guy ‘just win’s’ and he’ just win’s’ carrying no to little form, look at this season for example, when he won the Farmers Insurance Open he had missed cuts in 4 of the last 6 events including the preceding week in Phoenix. Placed 27th here on debut in 2012, but some background to that is that he played near 20 practice rounds at Augusta to prepare for the event so has significantly more course knowledge than it appears. Perhaps unsurprisingly for such an erratic player his stats for 2014 do not look great, but he is 34th in driving distance and 65th in strokes gained putting on the PGA tour in the 2014 season; a long shot? You bet, but one who might just spring a big surprise.
