Vegas Plays: Masters Picks Based on Vegas Odds
DraftKings.com is running a $300,000 guaranteed Masters fantasy tournament with $100,000 first place prize tomorrow morning. As a huge golf fan I love the Masters and betting on it in this way makes it ridiculously fun. I’m not an expert on who will perform best at the Masters this weekend, but Vegas sports bettors are. By using Vegas odds for individual players to win, I’ve found a few very good value plays for tomorrow that should help supplement your lineups tremendously.

Thorbjorn Oleson $5,500 – his price is ridiculously low due to the face he’s been cut in all 3 PGA events he’s played this year, but this guy has been killing it on the international tours and is a 125/1 to win (the same odds as Ernie Els and Fred Couples) and 20/1 to top 5. Not bad for someone who is priced $2,000-$3,000 lower than some players who have worse odds to win this weekend. He also allows you room to afford players like Rory Mcilroy and Adam Scott who are the favorites to win it all.
Brenden Grace $5,600 – Like Oleson, Grace has done poorly on the PGA tour but has fared better elsewhere. He is a longer shot than Oleson at 200/1 to win, but his price is just way too low to ignore.
Charl Schwartzel $9,000 – He’s won the Masters before and is priced about $600-$1000 lower than others at 33/1 odds like Schwartzel. He’s also 6/1 to place in the top 5. Take him over players like Keegan Bradley and Jordan Speith, who have worse odds to place in the top 5 but are priced significantly higher.
Adam Scott and Rory Mcilroy – These two are each 10/1 to win the Masters this year and 2/1 to place in the top 5. Having the guy who takes home the Green Jacket in the end could be the difference between 1st and 3rd, which is an $80,000 difference!View all posts by Max J Steinberg
