The 2019 Masters has lived up to its billing as the premiere golf event of the year.
The leaderboard after Round 2 suggested that this weekend would be a treat but little did we know how big of a spectacle this tournament was about to become.
Several players shot the lights out on Saturday, leaving us with a wide-open sprint to the finish on Sunday. The weather is certainly iffy, but that hasn’t stopped our golf team from plucking their favorite bets from the board for the curtain-closer at Augusta.
Bet: Brooks Koepka Over 69.5 (-110)
Koepka would’ve beaten this prop twice this tournament so far after shooting a 66, 71 and 69 through the first three days. Although, his 69 on Saturday narrowly beat it during pristine conditions on Saturday.
With the wind expected to pick up Sunday, I’ll take a chance on the over. He’ll be in the second-to-last group going off on Sunday, and the winds are expected to get progressively worse as the day goes on, which should play in favor of the over.
Additionally, since 2017 Koepka ranks 68th in Strokes Gained: Approach and 56th in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green under moderate-to-windy conditions, per Fantasy National.
