2017 Masters Picks

Jordan Spieth’s win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am this past week has led to his odds of winning the 2017 Masters to drop all the way to 6/1. Is Spieth a good pick at those 6/1 odds? In addition to discussing Spieth’s chances of grabbing a green jacket, read about my smart, longshot, and value picks for the 2017 Masters Tournament.

The Odds-On Favorite To Win The 2017 Masters:  Jordan Spieth 6/1

Spieth was so good in the first three rounds of the Pebble Beach Pro Am Tournament that he could afford to shoot a 70 in Round 4 and still win. Spieth shot a 68, 65, 65, 70 total of 268 to finish at -19. He beat Kelly Kraft by 4 strokes. He beat Dustin Johnson, who excels at Pebble Beach, by 5 strokes. Spieth is at the top of his game. If he continues his excellent play, the 6 to 1 odds could be a gift. Then again, there’s a reason winning at Augusta is special. It’s hard to do. I can’t back Spieth at the 6/1 odds.

The Smart Pick To Win The 2017 Masters: Jason Day 10/1

Day tied for fifth with a 12-under at the Pebble Beach Pro Am. He shot the ball well. His best finish at the Masters was a second in 2011. He finished tenth in the 2016 Masters Tournament. Although Day only won 3 tournaments in 2016, he finished eighth in the U.S. Open and second in the PGA Championship. He spent a lot of time last year preparing for the Major Tournaments. I firmly believe that this is the year he puts it all together at Augusta.

The Longshot Pick To Win The 2017 Masters: Tiger Woods 100/1

There’s a reason that Tiger is at 100 to 1 to win the 2017 Masters Tournament. Let’s be honest. Tiger’s odds should be 100 to 1. He’s only played all four rounds in one tournament this year, and that was his tournament, The Hero Challenge. He missed the cut at the Farmer’s Insurance Open. He withdrew after the first round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic after hitting a 77.

But, I still feel that Tiger is the best longshot at the huge 100 to 1 odds. He shot a 65 second round in The Hero Challenge. To me, that’s a sign that he might have enough to pull off the major upset at Augusta. Not only that, but history says that Tiger has a shot.  It took Jack Nicklaus 11 years, from 1975 to 1986, to win his last two Masters Tournaments. Tiger’s worth a couple of bucks at the odds.

The Value Pick To Win The 2017 Masters: Sergio Garcia 30/1

I know that Sergio’s best finish at Augusta was fourth in 2004. I get that. I also know that some golfers tend to excel at Augusta while others fail miserably. But, I truly believe that 2017 might be Sergio’s year. He started out February hot, that’s for sure. Sergio shot a -19 at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the same tournament that Tiger withdrew from. Par is 72 at Emirates Golf Club. Sergio crushed it with a 65-67-68-69. It was Sergio’s first tournament played either on the PGA Tour or on the European Tour in 2017. Without a doubt, Sergio offers the best value on the board at 30 to 1 to finally secure a green jacket, something he’s been chasing his entire career.
