US Masters betting tips for this week. Read on for our expert tips for the US Masters taking place at Augusta National Golf Club in Atlanta, Georgia.

US Masters

The countdown to the sporting summer begins this week with the first major of the golfing season the US Masters from Augusta National Golf Club, Atlanta, Georgia. The Masters is a tournament which is usually won by one of the World's top players and barring Danny Willett's shock victory in 2016 the recent list of winners is a who’s who in the golfing world. 

This year the man who the bookies have as their market leaders and tournament 7/1 favourite is Rory McIlroy and the former World number one's game is coming along nicely for an assault on the only major that has eluded the 29 year-old.

McIlroy, ended his long run without a Tour win last month at The Players' Championship and with no worse than a ninth place finish in his last seven tour starts and impressive form figures at Augusta, I can see why he is being punted, but as low as 6/1 he still looks mighty short at to complete a career Grand Slam.

Three From The Tee

Dustin Johnson @ 10/1 William Hill

While all the money has been coming in for the Northern Irish man a market leader who would appear to be friendless in the betting markets is DUSTIN JOHNSON and the big hitting American gets my vote at the general 10/1 (check the best each-way terms) to be wearing the famous green jacket on Sunday evening.

Augusta was always a course that was considered not a venue where DJ could thrive, but since the course has been extended the former US Open winner has had three successive top 10 finishes at The Masters and has a scoring average of 70.58 which if he continues will see him right in the mix at the weekend.

Like Rory, Johnson's whole season has been primed and focussed on this week, but unlike Rory he's been winning events all over the world with regularity with successes in Mexico and Saudi Arabia in the last couple of months.

In his last start the 34 year-old was below his best with an early exit at the World Match Play, but prior to that he finished inside the top 10 in six of his last seven starts with his only blip a poor performance at Pebble Beach which was a week after winning in Saudi Arabia and I am putting that down to the long distance travel.

There is no question that in 2019 DJ has been the most consistent and best performer in the golfing world and I am also very happy to side with him in a 72 hole match bet against McIlroy as despite his recent win at Sawgrass, Rory just doesn't close out winning positions as often as he should.

Hideki Matsuyama @ 33/1 William Hill

I am a massive fan of HIDEKI MATSUYAMA and nothing would please me more than to see the Japanese star win his first major and especially if I was holding a 33/1 betting slip with his name on it.

Matsuyama was really challenging at the top of the game until his wrist injury last year and although it has taken a bit of time the 27 year-old is right back to his best playing some very good golf, third in strokes gained tee to green and second in scrambling on the season so far.

The five time tour winner is one of the straightest hitters on the PGA Tour and he has no flaws in his game and at a venue that always throws up fairy-tale stories his return to the winning enclosure at Augusta would be right up with the best of them. 

In the 11 tournaments this year Matsuyama has made very cut and has made the top 20 in seven of them with three top 10 finishes including a very impressive eighth place finish at the Players Championships closing with two marvellous rounds of 66 and 67 and with top 20 finishes in the last three years at Augusta he is a serious contender this week.

Charley Hoffman @ 100/1 William Hill

The outsider to keep an eye on this week is CHARLEY HOFFMAN at the 100/1 that is available with both William Hill.

Hoffman has played in The Masters on five occasions and he's made the top 30 in every one with is best finish ninth in 2015 and his worst 29th in 2016. Last year he finished just outside the top 10 in 12th position and arriving at Augusta after a runners-up finish at the Texas Open at the weekend there are a lot worse bets than three figure prices about an in-form four time PGA tour winner.

Hoffman is always a fast one out of the blocks and he led the Masters in 2017 after his first round 65 and with opening rounds of 65, 67 and 69 in his five appearances I also like the 40/1 on him being the first round leader with most bookies.
