The Masters Tips and Predictions: Best Bet 🏆
After one round, England’s Justin Rose holds a four-stroke lead after a first round of 65 to finish seven under par. He finished tied for second in the Saudi International won by Dustin Johnson. His previous form hadn’t been as good as that effort, but he has blasted out of the blocks early to take a comfortable lead.
Rose finished T23 in the 2020 edition of The Masters, finishing -5 after starting with a 67. Hopefully he doesn’t put in one bad round like last year where he shot a 76 on the third day.
The Masters Tips and Predictions: Next Best 🥈
After finishing T7th in 2020, Jon Rahm returns looking to finish off better than last year. After opening rounds of 69 and 66, Rahm then shot 72 and 71 to finish -10 for the tournament. He is currently T13th after the opening round with an even 72 under his belt.
The Spaniard was T9th at The Players as he finished eight under par. His form has been very consistent over the past few months and one or two good rounds across the final three days will see Rahm in with a massive shot of winning it all.
The Masters Tips and Predictions: Best Value 💰
World number one Dustin Johnson is the defending champion of The Masters and he aims to become the first player since Tiger Woods in 2001 and 2002 to win back-to-back The Masters tournaments.
Johnson produced a disappointing 74 to begin his defence but he can bounce back on day two. He is simply too good of a player not to produce a round of 65 or 67 to get himself back into winning contention. Happy to back him at good odds to bounce back and threaten late in the tournament.
