Best Matchups Bets for the 2020 Masters
The excitement continues to build as we inch closer to Thursday morning. You’ve probably already seen the odds and have an idea of which players you want to back. Many of you have probably already pulled the trigger.
While you’re at it, don’t forget to attack the Masters matchups. I’ve keyed in on a trio of Masters head-to-head picks that don’t require us to lay any juice.
Talk about golf bets seeping with value, check these out below.
Brooks Koepka vs. Patrick Reed
To quickly reiterate just how utterly dominant Brooks Koepka has been at the majors, peep this tweet.
Best cumulative score to par in majors since 2016 (min. 10 rounds played):@BKoepka -73….— Justin Ray (@JustinRayGolf) November 10, 2020
D. Johnson, -14
DJ is the only player within 60 strokes of Koepka.
And you mean to tell me we can latch onto Brooksy at even money in a H2H versus Patrick Reed?
Koepka has gotten better every Masters he’s played in (T33, T21, T11, T2) and is coming off a brilliant weekend in Houston (65-65).
On the flip side, Reed has failed to crack the top 20 in five of his six appearances at Augusta.
Frankly, this isn’t about fading Patrick or thinking he will play poorly. This is about capturing the blatant value attach to BK in a Masters head-to-head pick.
Matthew Fitzpatrick vs. Cameron Smith
I’ve been touting Cameron Smith all week long. One of my sleeper picks for the Masters has been playing wonderfully over the last three months and has good vibes at Augusta thanks to a T5 finish in 2018.
Matthew Fitzpatrick may have a more well-rounded resume, but the 26-year-old Englishman has landed outside of the top-30 in three of his five trips to the “Tradition Unlike Any Other.”
After tallying an 11th at the CJ Cup and a 4th at the Zozo Championship (his last two starts), Cameron Smith appears to be on the verge of a breakthrough performance.
Bryson DeChambeau vs. Rory McIlroy
Rory’s record at Augusta is stellar. He’s played a bit better since the birth of his daughter and surely enjoys strolling down Magnolia Lane flying well under the radar.
At the same time, McIlroy is still searching for his perfect rhythm and may or may not be firing on all cylinders this week. Quite the opposite for Bryson – the dude who’s set to make mincemeat out of this legendary golf course.
DeChambeau’s confidence has never been higher, and the intimidation factor is real.
Anyone planning on betting the Masters online, go ahead and gobble up the Mad Scientist in this Masters head-to-head pick.
