2021 Masters Picks & Predictions
Trying to predict a Masters winner is very hard, and as the Masters odds market shows there are numerous players with strong chances this year. There's no less than six players under +2000 in the 2021 Masters odds market, and given the quality of these top players there's very little value in picking a player at the top of the Masters betting market.
If picking one player in the +1000 to +2000 odds range is hard, then picking a Masters winner greater than +10000 is almost impossible. However, we are going to make two Masters picks in this price range. One of these Masters picks will be based on 2021 Masters betting patterns, and will highlight the most-wagered long-shot in the field. The other Masters pick over 100/1 will be OddsChecker's own fancy.
Former Masters Winners
You might think looking at long-shots to win the 2021 Masters is pointless, however, there have been plenty of upsets in this tournament in recent history.
Zach Johnson was a shock winner on the Masters way back in 2007, when he won at odds of +12500, he had only one PGA Tour victory to his name before pulling on the famous green jacket.
The 2008 Masters was another shock year, this time Trevor Immelman claimed victory at +15000.
2011 was the last time we saw a winner at 100/1 or bigger, this time Charl Schwartzel stunned the golfing world and claimed Masters glory. The South African birdied the final four holes to beat Jason Day and Adam Scott.
