Phil at 12 to 1 is great value.
Watson at 40 to 1 is great value. While he hasn't won he has played well this year and this is a lefty's course.
Nicolas Colsaerts 100 to 1 is a great steal. I'm going to throw 5 bucks on him. I doubt he wins since it is his first time playing Master's but he is too good to get that number.
Dufner 75 to 1
Darkhorse is Scott Piercy at 350 to 1. Course fits his game and he has the ability to go really loooooow!
Yeah, I agree, Phil is a great value bet. He's played the Masters 20 times and has won 3 times, but he's finished in the top 5 10 times. That's a top five finish 50% of his appearances. And of those 10 top 5 finishes, 7 have been in the last 10 years. That's 70% the last 10 years (that's frickin amazing). While it's really hard to guess who will win, it's a pretty safe bet that Phil will at least be in the mix, which is always a good way to bet.
Where do you place your bets at?
