Tips for betting on the Masters tournament
Here are three Masters betting tips you might want to pay heed to this year:
- Do some research: Consume everything you can about the PGA Tour heading into The Masters. Look for who’s hot and who’s not. Find out whose game sets up well for Augusta. Good research is the key to making informed and educated golf bets.
- Take the odds: Nobody is an odds on favorite to win The Masters. That means you’ll get a good price on just about anyone. The odds are so good for most it pays to bet on more than one golfer to win.
- Bet futures early: The Masters futures market is filled with decent odds on even the consensus favorites. However, once the first couple of rounds are through, those odds will drop dramatically for the real contenders. That’s why it’s a good idea to get in the market early and take advantage of all the attractive pricing.
