The Masters: Final round betting guideApril 13, 2014 Golf News
Watson and Kuchar are the favourites ahead of the last day at Augusta National
Yesterday’s overnight leader Bubba Watson remains the slight favourite to win the 2014 Masters ahead of the final round at Augusta National. Despite shooting a one-over-par 73, Watson remains tied at the top of the leaderboard with 21-year-old rookie Jordan Spieth, and the former champion is priced at around 3/1 with bookmakers this morning.
Despite being one shot off the lead, Matt Kuchar just shades Spieth into the position of second favourite following his stunning four-under-par 68 yesterday, priced between 3/1 and 4/1 this morning.
If you think that Spieth can become the first rookie since Fuzzy Zoeller to win the Masters, then he is also priced at around 4/1 ahead of the final round.
With the leaders at five-under overnight, it would be hard to imagine anybody currently sitting on a score higher than -2 winning the tournament. Beyond the three main leaders, the likes of Lee Westwood (12/1), Rickie Fowler (12/1) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (20/1) have an outside chance and will benefit from earlier tee times this afternoon.
Jimenez’s six-under 66 yesterday was the lowest round of the week, and with the leaders at five-under overnight, it would be hard to imagine anybody currently sitting on a score higher than -2 winning the tournament. That is very much reflected in the odds today, with a sharp jump from Thomas Bjorn (-2, 28/1) to John Senden (-1, 66/1).
