The 2015 Masters live TV and online coverage is scheduled to get underway this Thursday morning from Augusta, Ga. and for golf fans, this is the one tournament that is a cut above the rest! The Masters is the Super Bowl and Daytona 500 wrapped up in one for golf fanatics.
The chase for the green jacket is one of the oldest and deepest traditions in all of sports and this year the competition is once again fierce.
The number one ranked golfer in the world, Rory McIlroy is the favorite in this year’s Masters followed by Jordan Spieth and last year’s champion Bubba Watson. The best thing about wagering on a tourney like the Masters is the potential profits that can be made. At 6/1, McIlroy is the top dog on the Vegas boards – at odds that big make him still an attractive wager.
Unlike horse racing where the favorites may go off at 9/5 or even worse at 2/5, when it comes to golf tournaments if you are lucky enough to pick the winner you will profit nicely.
Of course all odds and predictions aside, many fans of Tiger Woods will just be glad to see him back on the links. Woods isn’t what he used to be, however at 25/1 odds he may be worth taking a flyer on. Woods has 4 green jackets to his name and we all know Tiger knows how to win. The question is does Woods have what it takes anymore to pull off a major? We shall find out soon!
