One of the best gambling holidays of the year has arrived.

The 2019 Masters begins on Thursday (8:30 a.m. ET) live from Augusta National in Georgia.

To prepare for a tradition unlike any other, the Action Network’s brightest golf minds got together to provide tournament outlooks for over 50 golfers, starting with Rory McIlroy.

Top Stories


Rory McIlroy 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 7-1
  • DFS pricing: $11,600 Draftkings; $12,100 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-8, 4, T-10, T-7, T-5
  • Tee times: 11:15 a.m. ET Thursday; 2:00 p.m. ET Friday

He’s the pre-tournament favorite for a reason, as McIlroy has been head and shoulders above his elite-level peers so far this year, finally getting that final-round monkey off his back with a Players Championship victory.

It’s tough to envision him not in the mix come Sunday afternoon, but in order to win – and subsequently become the sixth player ever to claim the career grand slam – he’ll have to exorcise a few demons at Augusta National, including one that appeared during last year’s final round, when he started in the last pairing, but admitted playing “not to lose” and shot 74 en route to a T-5. — Jason Sobel


Dustin Johnson 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 10-1
  • DFS pricing: $11,300 DraftKings; $12,000 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2014-18): T-68, T-6, T-4, N/A, T-10
  • Tee times: 1:38 p.m. ET Thursday; 10:42 a.m. ET Friday

Until about a month ago, DJ was at the top of the betting odds. He was passed after McIlroy claimed the Players title, but Johnson is just as big of a threat as ever here.

He’s got two wins worldwide in 2019 and has top 10s in his last three starts at Augusta.

I don’t bet favorites, but I’m not talking anyone out of DJ. — Joshua Perry


Justin Rose 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 12-1
  • DFS pricing: $10,800 DraftKings; $11,800 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-14, T-2, T-10, 2, T-12
  • Tee times: 1:49 p.m. ET Thursday; 10:53 a.m. ET Friday

Rose is another top-tier golfer who has historically done well at Augusta, posting a top-25 finish in every year since 2012, along with four top 10s. You’ll also get a little bit of savings in DFS if you use him over DJ and Rory — and not sacrifice much talent with his 67.9 LT Adj Rd Score.

Rose’s -2.8 and -5.8 adjusted strokes on par 4s and 5s are also comparable to the two favorites this week. Overall, he has an excellent balanced game, ranking second in Total Strokes Gained over the past 50 rounds, trailing only Rory in that time frame. I like Rose more as a DFS play than I do in the betting markets, where he’s priced about right. — Justin Bailey


Tiger Woods 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 14-1
  • DFS pricing: $10,500 Draftkings; $11,100 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, T-17, N/A, N/A, T-32
  • Tee times: 11:04 a.m. ET Thursday; 1:49 p.m. ET Friday

It’s been 14 years – yes, 14 – since Woods’ fourth of four Masters victories and yet, he still remains a threat to make a charge at Jack Nicklaus’ all-time record of six. His results here in the last decade have been unpredictable, to say the least.

In 2010, fresh off a highly publicized scandal and months away from the game, he finished T-4; in 2012, in the midst of a three-win season, he finished T-40; in 2015, after starting the year MC-WD, he finished T-17; and last year, following a pair of title contentions, he finished a mere T-32. In a current year where it feels like he’s still getting warmed up, this one could go either way.

But there is one thing you can bank on — casual bettors will flock to the window to bet Tiger to win. — Jason Sobel


Justin Thomas 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 16-1
  • DFS pricing: $10,200 DraftKings; $11,700 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, N/A, T-39, T-22, T-17
  • Tee times: 1:49 p.m. ET; 10:53 a.m. ET Friday

Thomas is one of the premier talents in the loaded Masters field with his 67.7 Long-Term Adjusted Round Score, a mark that trails only Dustin Johnson in this field.

However, Thomas hasn’t finished better than 17th at the Masters, and he’s lost strokes on approach in his past two tournaments, which would make me inclined to fade him as a DFS cash game option when the loose pricing makes it easier to roster guys like Rory McIlroy and DJ.

That said, he’s an exceptional tournament play if you’re looking to go contrarian on the higher end of the price range. — Justin Bailey


Rickie Fowler 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 16-1
  • DFS pricing: $9,700 Draftkings; $11,400 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-5, T-12, T-69, T-11, 2
  • Tee times: 11:15 a.m. ET Thursday; 2 p.m. ET Friday

The Masters is the first chance for Rickie to shed the “best player without a Major” title that was passed to him after Sergio Garcia slipped on the Green Jacket two years ago.

Fowler has made a habit of putting himself in contention at Majors, especially at Augusta, where he has four top-12 finishes in the past five years.

I look for Rickie once again to be in contention this year because of one aspect of his game: Putting. He has become arguably the best putter on the PGA Tour, and no other course provides a bigger advantage to putters than Augusta National. If you’re looking to roll the dice on someone with at least +1000 odds, Rickie is the best value in that price range. — Drew Stoltz


Jon Rahm 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 16-1
  • DFS pricing: $10,000 DraftKings; $11,600 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, N/A, N/A, T-27, 4
  • Tee times: 11:04 a.m. ET Thursday;  1:49 p.m. ET Friday

Rahm doesn’t have a win on the resume this year like many of the top players, but he’s been consistently inside the top 10 for months now.

The young Spaniard was fourth last year as well, so he’s had a chance to figure the course out as well.

I don’t think he’s a guy that will draw much outright action though, so his number may drift as the week goes along. I’d need his odds to get north of 20-1 pre-tournament to consider a bet on him to win. — Joshua Perry


Jordan Spieth 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 16-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,900 Draftkings; $10,400 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-2, 1, T-2, T-11, 3
  • Tee times: 2 p.m. ET Thursday; 11:04 a.m. ET Friday

It doesn’t matter how Spieth is playing before Masters week, as soon as he makes that turn onto Magnolia Road, he usually starts looking like the world’s best player.

In five career starts at Augusta, he owns eye-popping results of 2-1-2-11-3, the last of which included a furious final-round rally which fell agonizingly short.

All of that said, Spieth has seemed nothing like the world’s best player so far this year, his stats down across the board in most areas. If he’s to turn it around again, it would speak volumes about his proficiency on this golf course.

If you really want to bet the struggling Spieth, do it on Thursday or Friday. He ranks 16th and 14th in scoring average in the opening two rounds, respectively, but 205th and 208th on Saturday or Sunday. He’s been first-round leader in three of the last four Masters, so that might be the play if you think lightning can strike for a fourth time. — Jason Sobel


Francesco Molinari 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 20-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,600 DraftKings; $10,900 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2014-18): 50, DNP, DNP, T-33, T-20
  • Tee times: 1:16 p.m. ET Thursday, 10:09 a.m. ET Friday

I like Molinari more in balanced DFS builds than I do for any outright bets.His course history at the Masters isn’t the best; he’s finished 19th or worse in every appearance here since 2010 and missed the cut twice. It’s hard to gauge his DFS ownership at the time of writing, but he’s sandwiched between Hideki Matsuyama and Xander Schauffele, who I’d expect to both be more popular than Molinari.

If Molinari can get his putter going as he did at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him have the best finish of his career at this event. He’s been dialed in over the past 50 rounds, ranking 10th in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green and 14th in Strokes Gained: Approach (Fantasy National). — Justin Bailey


Tommy Fleetwood 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 20-1
  • DFS pricing: $9,200 DraftKings; $11,000 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, N/A, N/A, T-62, T-17
  • Tee times: 10:53 a.m. Thursday; 1:38 p.m. ET Friday

Perhaps the most underrated golfer on tour, Fleetwood is coming into Augusta after two straight top-five finishes. He has just two appearances at Augusta historically, missing the cut in 2017 but finishing in the top 20 last year.

Fleetwood has everything you want out of a contender: He’s among the top 10 players in Long Term Adjusted Round Score, and he’s one of the best ball-strikers in the world, leading the entire field in Greens in Regulation.

His only struggle last year was putting; if he gets hot, he can absolutely win. He’s a fine bet at that 20-1 to 30-1 range, but I’ll mostly be getting action on him to top 20 and in matchups. — Bryan Mears


Jason Day 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 25-1
  • DFS pricing: $9,100 Draftkings; $11,300 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-20, T-28, T-10, T-22, T-20
  • Tee times: 1:38 p.m. ET Thursday; 10:42 a.m. ET Friday

Jason Day checks all the boxes necessary to win a Green Jacket.

Bombs off the tee? Check. Great iron play? Check. Great speed control on greens? Check.

I think Jason Day represents an incredible value in DFS given that he is somehow priced below Bryson DeChambeau and roughly the same as Paul Casey. Day has three top-10 finishes at the Masters, including a second (2011) and a third (2013), with a worst finish of T-28.

As long as he is healthy (you never know with him), I am very bullish on Jason Day at Augusta. — Drew Stoltz


Brooks Koepka 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 25-1
  • DFS pricing: $9,500 Draftkings; $11,500 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, T-33, T-21, T-11, N/A
  • Tee times: 2 p.m. ET Thursday; 11:04 a.m. ET Friday

In the first week of June last year, Koepka was fresh off a wrist injury and his number for Augusta was at 50/1. I added him to my card at that time, figuring 10 months was plenty of time to heal up. Turns out three weeks later, he was a major champ again.

We know he shows up in these big tournaments, and betting him to top 20 in majors at plus money has been my favorite play for a few years now. — Joshua Perry


Bryson DeChambeau 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 25-1
  • DFS pricing: $9,300 Draftkings; $11,200 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, N/A, T-21, N/A, T-38
  • Tee times: 2 p.m. ET Thursday; 11:04 a.m. ET

The mad scientist of the PGA Tour heads to a golf course that requires more imagination and feel than any other course in the world.

This will mark his third trip to Augusta, finishing as Low Amateur in 2016 with a T-21. He finished T-28 last year in his debut as a pro.

I think Bryson’s biggest challenge will be on the greens. He relies on the green charts more than almost anyone on Tour, and Augusta is one of the only courses that won’t allow their greens to be charted.

I expect DeChambeau to have a respectable finish, but think there is better value in DFS in his price range and wouldn’t be surprised to see him finish in the 30th-40th range this week. — Drew Stoltz

Bubba Watson has terrific history at the Masters. Credit: Brian Spurlock, USA Today Sports.

Bubba Watson 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 25-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,800 Draftkings; $10,200 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): 1, T-38, T-37, T-62, T-5
  • Tee times: 1:27 p.m. ET Thursday; 10:31 a.m. ET Friday

Bubba is the most course-dependent player perhaps we’ve ever seen. When wins come for him — like they have at courses like River Highlands and Augusta — they’ve come in bunches. The two-time winner may not rate well in a bunch of non-course-specific models because, well, he’s a pretty streaky golfer. But his history at Augusta is hard to deny, and he benefits from perhaps the best characteristic there: He’s a lefty who can hit a fade.

Don’t get me wrong: He’s still streaky, even at Augusta: He placed fifth last year after missing the cut the year before. But he clearly has winning upside, which is why the best way to bet him is with to-win odds rather than matchups or a top 20.

Shoot for the stars and give yourself some hedge opportunities on the weekend if you’re itching for a Bubba bet. — Bryan Mears


Paul Casey 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 30-1
  • DFS pricing: $9,000 Draftkings; $10,800 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, T-6, T-4, 6, T-15
  • Tee times: 2 p.m. ET Thursday; 11:04 a.m. ET Friday

Casey is in the middle of a career year.

He’s already got a win and four top-3 finishes on Tour in just a few months. I want to find a way to get action on him this week, but I’m not sure about an outright win.

His top 20 history here is excellent, with four straight and seven in his last 10. So that’s the direction I’ll probably go unless his odds to win drift back into the 40s. — Joshua Perry


Tony Finau 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 30-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,200 DraftKings; $9,900 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, N/A, N/A, N/A, T-10
  • Tee times: 9:58 a.m. ET Thursday; 12:54 p.m. ET Friday

Finau might be one of the most underpriced golfers in the field. His 68.2 LT Adj Rd Score is the ninth-best mark in the field, but he’s priced all the way down as the 20th most-expensive golfer on DraftKings.

The main concern with Finau here would be his game around the green (53rd in Strokes Gained: Around the Green), but he’s worth exposure considering he ranks seventh in Total Strokes Gained over his past 50 rounds. There’s a strong chance Finau makes my cash game roster, and I like a top-20 bet on him depending on the odds. — Justin Bailey


Hideki Matsuyama 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 35-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,700 Draftkings; $10,600 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-68, 5, T-7, T-11, 19
  • Tee times: 10:09 a.m. ET Thursday; 1:05 p.m. ET Friday

Hideki Matsuyama is one of the guys slightly below the top tier players in the world who is ready to pop.

After battling injury last year, he has made all 10 cuts this year with three top-10 finishes, and is equipped with as much talent as nearly anyone on Tour. His last four finishes at Augusta have been 5th, 7th, 11th, and 19th.

I think Hideki finishes in the top 15 this year, and the only thing holding him back from really contending is his putter. He just doesn’t hole enough longer putts (10 feet or more) like you have to at Augusta to win. Expect another high finish out of Hideki and a great DFS value at $8,700. — Drew Stoltz


Phil Mickelson 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 40-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,300 DraftKings; $10,500 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T52, T2, T58, T22, T36
  • Tee times: 1:49 p.m. ET Thursday; 10:53 a.m. ET Friday

The game’s ultimate riverboat gambler — and I mean that strictly in an inside-the-ropes, during-the-round sense — has enjoyed some massive highs and endured some curious lows in his game already this year. Obviously, the win at Pebble Beach was momentous, but he’s also sprinkled in a trio of missed cuts, many of which were littered with some big numbers.

Last year, Lefty chased an opening 70 with a 79 in this tournament, essentially eliminating himself from contention. While he could certainly be a factor this week, it’s not tough to envision a similar fate once again. — Jason Sobel

Xander Schauffele has won in elite fields before. Credit: Bill Streicher, USA Today Sports.

Xander Schauffele 2019 Masters Betting Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 40-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,500 DraftKings; $10,300 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2018): T50
  • Tee times: 10:53 a.m. ET Thursday, 1:38 p.m. ET Friday

There’s a lot to like about Schauffele’s game, but nothing more than this: He continually brings his best stuff to the biggest events.

In his short time on the PGA Tour, he already owns wins in a WGC, a winners-only tourney and the elite-field Tour Championship, plus finishes of sixth-or-better in three of his seven major championship appearances.

Schauffele broke par in his first career Masters round last year, only to play the next 54 holes in 9-over and finish T-50. Expect a top-20 performance this time — if not much, much better. — Jason Sobel


Adam Scott 2019 Masters Betting Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 40-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,400 DraftKings | $ 10,100 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-14, T-38, T-42, T-9, T-32
  • Tee times: Thursday 10:09 a.m. ET, Friday 1:05 p.m. ET

For those who believed Scott’s winning putt in 2012 looked undignified because he was anchoring his putter, just wait until he grabs his broomstick with a claw-type grip and leaves the flagstick in this time around.

Now 38, he still owns the long game to be a factor, especially on a second-shot golf course such as Augusta.

The real trick, as always for the Aussie, is getting his ball into the hole. Scott’s putting has been much improved this year, as he ranks inside the top-20 on the PGA Tour, though he continues to tinker with the details. — Jason Sobel


Louis Oosthuizen 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 40-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,100 DraftKings; $9,700 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): 25, T-19, T-15, T-41, T-12
  • Tee times: 10:42 a.m. ET Thursday; 1:27 p.m. ET Friday

Oosthuizen has been riding a hot putter for a few weeks and pushed the eventual match play champion Kevin Kisner in their match before bowing out. We remember Louis pushing Bubba Watson into a playoff in 2012 here, but outside of that, he’s never been inside the top 10. He still hasn’t found a way to win in the US yet either.

He could pop up on the leaderboard if that putter stays hot, but I’m not putting anything on him this week. — Joshua Perry


Matt Kuchar 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 40-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,900 DraftKings; $9,700 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T5, T46, T24, T4, T28
  • Tee times: 1:05 p.m. ET Thursday ; 958 a.m. ET Friday

It’s been a weird year for Kuchar. He was always the guy who struggled to close out tournaments, but he’s grabbed two wins this season.

He was also the guy about whom no one seemed to have a bad thing to say. Now he can’t dodge controversy. It hasn’t seemed to affect his play, and he’s probably a top-20 lock this week. I’ll be backing him in that market at plus-money odds. — Joshua Perry


Marc Leishman 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 50-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,400 DraftKings; $ 10,100 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-52, N/A, T-58, T-43, 9
  • Tee times: 10:42 a.m. ET Thursday, 1:27 p.m. ET Friday

It’s been a quiet season for the veteran Australian. He’s had some good results in 2019, but the game has seemed to be slipping slightly. He’s one of those guys who seems like a safer play than he really is.

He’s been boom-or-bust at the Masters recently with two top 10s and three missed cuts in his last six appearances. — Joshua Perry


Henrik Stenson 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 60-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,600 DraftKings | $9,600 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-14, T-19, T-24, T-62, T-5
  • Tee times: 9:58 a.m. ET Thursday; 12:54 p.m. ET Friday

Stenson is always solid tee to green. If the putter shows up, he could be on the leaderboard Sunday afternoon. Outside of last year though, that hasn’t happened much for Henrik, who usually finishes outside the top 10.

I don’t really see myself getting involved much with him this week. Maybe in a low Swede prop vs. Noren if there isn’t much juice. — Joshua Perry

Kevin Kisner is coming off of a win at WGC-Match Play. Credit: Stephen Spillman, USA Today Sports.

Kevin Kisner 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 60-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,700 DraftKings; $8,700 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, N/A, T-37, T-43, T-28
  • Tee times: 12:54 p.m. ET Thursday; 9:47 a.m. ET Friday

Kisner is one of the more consistent players you will find in this price range on DraftKings. His highest finish at the Masters is 28th, but he’s made the cut in all three of his appearances here.

He’ll enter this tournament in great form with a 68.1 recent Adj Rd Score, along with ranking 18th in Strokes Gained: Ball Striking and 22nd in Strokes Gained: Approach over his past 24 rounds (Fantasy National).

There is a strong chance he ends up on my cash game roster considering the flexibility he allows. — Justin Bailey


Patrick Cantlay 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 60-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,700 Draftkings; $9,900 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2018): T58
  • Tee times: 1:27p.m. ET Thursday ; 10:31 a.m. ET Friday

One fellow pro recently suggested that if he could take a player outside the top-10 to win this week, Cantlay would be the pick. A guy who lives, breathes and sleeps golf, he’s settled into a life of elite-level consistency, but still has just a single win to his name.

It’s difficult to imagine him parlaying a 2017 victory in Las Vegas into a Masters title for his second career win, but it’s similarly difficult to envision anything close to the 75-76 rounds he posted here last year to miss the cut. Contending at the Masters often takes baby steps and he’ll move in the right direction this time.

Check the matchups carefully. If you can find him against a Tony Finau or Xander Schauffele or Marc Leishman, fire up his opponent.

I have each of those players ranked ahead of Cantlay, who hasn’t shown great form this year and still doesn’t have a top-10 in a half-dozen major starts as a pro. — Jason Sobel


Patrick Reed 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 60-1
  • DFS pricing: $8,000 DraftKings; $10,700 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-72, T-22, T-49, T-71, 1
  • Tee times: 10:31 a.m. ET Thursday; 1:16 p.m. ET Friday

Reed won here last season, but he caught a hot putter, averaging 26 putts per round, although he did manage to hit 67% of greens in regulation.

I think Reed is a fade in DFS and not worth a look in the betting markets considering he mostly relies on his short game, and once in a while everything else seems to click and he’ll sneak in these victories.

Over Reed’s past 50 rounds, he ranks 70th in Strokes Gained: Approach and 52nd in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green, per Fantasy National. I won’t be placing a bet on Reed unless it’s for him to miss the cut. — Justin Bailey


Sergio Garcia 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 60-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,700 DraftKings; $10,000 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-52, T-17, T-34, 1, T-82
  • Tee times: 9:58 a.m. ET Thursday; 12:54 p.m. ET Friday

Sergio had quite the highlight reel at the 2018 Masters after he carded a 13 on the 15th hole. The former champ is my favorite outright bet considering the odds you can get him at.

You’ll get plenty of value for a golfer who has plenty of experience at Augusta and is in good form, ranking fifth in Strokes Gained: Approach and sixth in Strokes Gained: Ball Striking over his past 24 rounds (Fantasy National). — Justin Bailey


Gary Woodland 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 80-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,500 DraftKings; $9,800 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-26, T-56, N/A, T-81, T-75
  • Tee times: 10:53 a.m. ET Thursday; 1:38 p.m. ET Friday

Woodland is playing some of the best golf of his career these days, as evidenced by his current placement in the world ranking, which is well above where’s he’s been at this point in recent years.

Perhaps that will also buoy him to a stronger Masters result, as he’s been curiously lackluster in a tournament where his length off the tee should be an inherent advantage. In six career starts, he owns a T-24, a T-26, three missed cuts and a withdrawal. Even despite his improved play, it’s probably best to fade him here until he proves he can play better on this course. — Jason Sobel


Cameron Smith 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 80-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,400 DraftKings; $9,600 FanDuel
  • Masters History: T-55 in 2016; T-5 in 2018
  • Tee times: 11:15 a.m. ET Thursday; 2 p.m. ET Friday

Overall, I like Smith’s prospect on tour and I have a wager on him at this year’s U.S. Open.

He hasn’t been playing really well lately, but that tends to happen when he hits the southern swing and the greens shift to Bermuda. The two times he’s played the Masters have been a mixed bag, but he finished tied for fifth last year, so maybe he’s figured out how to play well here.

I don’t have a hard opinion on him one way or the other. I don’t think I’ll have a play on or against him all week. — Joshua Perry


Si Woo Kim 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 80-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,700 DraftKings; $8,800 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, N/A, N/A, T-84, T-24
  • Tee times: 9:25 a.m. ET Thursday; 12:10 p.m. ET Friday

Kim is an excellent putter, averaging 28.6 putts per round over the past 75 weeks, and his -4.5 adjusted strokes on par 5s is one of the best marks among golfers in his price range.

Historically, he lacks off the tee, ranking 85th in Stroked Gained: Off-the-Tee and 53rd in driving distance gained (Fantasy National), so I won’t have anything invested in Kim for the Masters, even though he’s coming off a top-five finish at the Valero Texas Open. — Justin Bailey


Webb Simpson 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 100-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,400 DraftKings; $9,500 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-52, T-28, T-29, T-62, T-20
  • Tee times: 10:31 a.m. ET Thursday; 1:16 p.m. ET Friday

Webb is rather underpriced in DFS considering his 68.4 Long-Term Adjusted Round Score is the 12th-best mark in the field, but he’s priced as the No. 31 golfer on DraftKings. He likely won’t make my cash game rosters, but he’s worth exposure in three-entry max tournaments and mass-multi-entry.

He thrives around the green, ranking seventh in strokes gained: around the green over the past 24 rounds, but unlike Patrick Reed, Webb excels in other aspects of the game, ranking 16th in strokes Gained: approach and 21st in strokes gained: tee-to-green (Fantasy National) over the same time frame. — Justin Bailey


Ian Poulter 2019 Masters Betting Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 100-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,600 DraftKings; $9,500 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2014-18): T-20, T-6, T-49, N/A, T-44
  • Tee times: 12:54 p.m. ET Thursday; 9:47 a.m. ET Friday

Don’t call it a comeback, he’s been here for years.

Poulter never left the scene of golf’s top level, but his game did abandon him for a time. The current resurgence, though, is palpable. Poulter has looked as good as any non-Ryder Cup event so far this year.

He’s proven to be consistent at the Masters over his career, though not exceptional. He owns three top-10s and seven top-25s among his 13 total starts — and I like the value of betting Poulter for yet another top-10 this week. — Jason Sobel


Billy Horschel 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 100-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,100 DraftKings; $9,100 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2014-2018): T37, MC, T17, N/A, MC
  • Tee times: 12:43 p.m. ET Thursday; 9:36 a.m. ET Friday

Horschel’s had a solid 2019 campaign, with 12 cuts made in 13 starts and one top 10.

Augusta, however, is not the type of course that suits his game. He is relatively short off the tee at 289 yards and a middle of the road putter, as well.

Horschel’s biggest strength is that he doesn’t have a glaring weakness, but you need more than that to be a factor at Augusta. He has two missed cuts, a 37th and a 17th in his four starts at Augusta, and while I think he is a safe bet to make the cut this year, I think his ceiling is a top 20 finish and realistically expect him to finish in the 35th to 40th range. — Drew Stoltz


Charles Howell III 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 100-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,000 Draftkings; $8,600 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): Hasn’t played since 2012
  • Tee times: 9:47 a.m. ET Thursday; 12:43 p.m. ET Friday

The Augusta native is back in the Masters for the first time since 2012. Howell has been his usual consistent self this season and even found a rare victory during the fall swing to earn his spot in the field. He may be worth a top 20 wager. — Joshua Perry


Keegan Bradley 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 100-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,000 DraftKings; $9,300 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-80, T-52, T-22, N/A, N/A
  • Tee times: 12:32 p.m. ET Thursday; 9:25 a.m. ET Friday

Keegs hasn’t played at the Masters since 2016, but he’s made the cut in four of his five appearances since 2012. He’s an awful putter, averaging 29.6 putts per round over the past 75 weeks, but he’s one of the best ball strikers on tour, ranking sixth in strokes gained: Approach and 11th in strokes gained: ball striking over his past 50 rounds (Fantasy National).

He won’t make the cut in my cash game builds, but he’s worth exposure in tournaments considering he has a top-25 long-term adjusted round score, but he’s priced outside the top 40. — Justin Bailey


Rafa Cabrera Bello 2019 Masters Betting Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 100-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,500 Draftkings; $9,200 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, N/A, T-17, T-62, T-38
  • Tee times: 1:16 p.m. ET Thursday; 10:09 a.m. ET

The coolest dude on the pro circuit that most casual fans don’t know about, RCB is quick with a shaka to show off his surfer persona, but can also fire laser beams into tucked flags anytime.

The truth, though, is that at 34, he probably is what he is as a golfer, which is to say he’s not going anywhere for a while, though he likely isn’t making a huge leap, either. In 22 career major starts, he owns just a pair of top-10 results and neither of them have come at the Masters.

Though one of ‘em, a T-10 in the most recent major at last year’s PGA Championship, could offer some momentum, it’s tough to see a deviation from the norm taking place anytime soon. — Jason Sobel


Branden Grace 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 125-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,100 DraftKings; $9,200 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T80, T67, T63, T27, T24
  • Tee times: 9:36 p.m. ET Thursday; 12:32 p.m. ET Friday

Grace had been really off his game this year, but seemed to find a little form at the match play event.

He has never really contended here and it’s been awhile since he’s been a factor in a PGA Tour event, so it’s hard to see everything lining up for The Masters out of the blue.

Augusta National isn’t somewhere you go to find your game. I’ll be staying away from Grace this week. — Joshua Perry


Matthew Fitzpatrick 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 125-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,300 Draftkings; $9,300 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-52, N/A, T-7, 32, T-38
  • Tee times: 12:32 p.m. ET Thursday; 9:25 a.m. ET Friday

Big things are on the horizon for this 24-year-old, who was recently the 54-hole leader at the Arnold Palmer Invitational before ceding to Francesco Molinari on the final day.

His career arc has yet to match similarly aged players such as Jordan Spieth or Justin Thomas — and he might never get to their level — but he should be at the point where he starts seriously contending in big events more often. His result of T-7 here three years ago proves that Fitzpatrick is capable of getting into the mix. Don’t be surprised to see him equal that number this week. — Jason Sobel


Zach Johnson 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 125-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,900 Draftkings, $9,000 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-63, T-9, T-63, T-54, T-36
  • Tee times: 1:05 p.m. ET Thursday; 9:58 a.m. Friday

Realistically speaking, I can’t find one good reason to expect much from Zach Johnson this week at Augusta. He has been relatively consistent on tour this year, making six of nine cuts, but his only top 10 came during the wrap-around season at his home courses in Sea Island.

Although he is a Masters Champion, it has been a long time since he’s played any decent golf at Augusta. His last three Masters appearances have yielded two MC’s and a 36th. His 284-yard average off the tee will be an even bigger issue with the length that’s been added to Augusta and I don’t see how he is a viable DFS play.

I would much rather fill my line-up with guys like Keith Mitchell or Kevin Kisner, who are priced below Zach. His best value may be fading him in head to head match-ups. — Drew Stoltz


Alex Noren 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 150-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,900 DraftKings; $8,600 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2017-18): MC, MC
  • Tee times: 12:30 p.m. ET Thursday, 9:25 a.m. ET Friday

Noren has just been lost this year. He flashed a bit of form at the match play event two weeks ago, but overall he’s been nowhere near his best.

He’s also never played well at Augusta, even when the form was good. Maybe he figured something out in his match play wins, but it’s tough to expect much from him this week. — Joshua Perry

Charl Schwartzel won the 2011 Masters. Peter Casey, USA Today Sports.

Charl Schwartzel 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 150-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,300 DraftKings; $8,900 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): T-52, T-38, T-63, 3, T-54
  • Tee times: 9:47 a.m. ET Thursday; 12:43 p.m. ET Friday

What a roller-coaster year it’s been for the 2011 Masters champion. For a while there, Schwartzel looked like he might be endured a mid-career slump like those which afflicted guys such as Lee Westwood and Henrik Stenson at one point.

He made a conscious decision to play the alternate-field Puerto Rico Open, chasing four MCs and a WD with a T-6 there, then a T-16 the next week’s Honda Classic.

None of that should be mistaken for him being on the verge of a title contention – or anything close to it – this week, though his potential career demise might have been greatly exaggerated. — Jason Sobel


Tyrrell Hatton 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 150-1
  • DFS pricing: $7,200 DraftKings, $9,100 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2017-18): MC, T-44
  • Tee times: 1:56 p.m. ET Thursday, 10:09 a.m. ET Friday

Hatton is a guy I have a longshot bet down on for the U.S. Open. He relies a little too much on the short game and his form hasn’t really been that great so far this year.

He’s still never finished inside the top 40 in the Masters, either. — Joshua Perry


J.B. Holmes 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 150-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,800 DraftKings; $8,700 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): N/A, T-56, T-4, 50, N/A
  • Tee times: 9:25 a.m. ET Thursday; 12:10 p.m. ET Friday

The slowest player on tour is off my radar at this prestigious event. For being a long-hitter, he’s not great at par 5s (-3.7 adjusted strokes). He’s also abysmal around the greens, which could spell trouble if his approach game is off.

Over Holmes’ past 50 rounds he ranks 71st in Strokes Gained: Around the Green and 57th in Strokes Gained: Putting (per Fantasy National). — Justin Bailey


Keith Mitchell 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 150-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,800 Draftkings; $8,500 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): Never qualified
  • Tee times: 8:41 a.m. ET Thursday; 11:26 a.m. ET Friday

Mitchell’s 225-1 win at the Honda Classic will be tough to top for me this year. His game should be a good fit for Augusta, but rookies tend to struggle here.

If he can keep up the ball-striking numbers, he could be a threat in the future though. He may also be worth a look in the low debutante prop along with Matt Wallace. — Joshua Perry


Emiliano Grillo 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 200-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,600 DraftKings, $8,900 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2016-18): T-17, 51, N/A
  • Tee times: 9:36 a.m. ET Thursday, 12:36 p.m. ET Friday

An immense ball-striking talent who seemed on the precipice of the game’s elite level, Grillo appears to be treading water a bit so far this year. We should remain bullish about his long-term potential, but it might be pie-in-the-sky thinking to believe he can contend this week.

Though he did make the cut in each of his previous two Masters starts, Grillo has also missed the cut in five of his last six major championship appearances. — Jason Sobel


Kevin Na 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 200-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,500 DraftKings; $8,100 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2015-18): T-12, T-55, T-54, N/A
  • Tee times: 11:59 a.m. ET Thursday; 9:03 a.m. ET Friday

Similar to Billy Horschel, Na is a player who has no glaring strengths, nor weaknesses. He is longer than he gets credit for off the tee, averaging close to 300 yards, and a solid putter as well, ranking 31st in strokes gained: putting.

He has a lot of Augusta experience under his belt, with this being his eighth showing, but his record is pedestrian other than a 12th in 2012. He is priced very low in DFS and may be worth a shot as a guy who will most likely make the cut, and will be low-owned.

I like him more than a number of guys priced above him, but don’t expect much more than a finish around 40th or so if you do take him. Anything better than that would be icing on the cake. — Drew Stoltz


Shane Lowry 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 200-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,700 DraftKings;$8,600 FanDuel
  • Masters History (2014-18): N/A, T-56, T-39, T-54, N/A
  • Tee times: 8:52 a.m. ET Thursday; 11:37 a.m. ET Friday

Lowry has made one of three cuts at the Masters over his past three tournaments, and finished just 39th at his best. Overall, he’s had a rocky start to 2019, as he has missed the cut in three of his four PGA events. In those events, he failed to gain strokes tee-to-green, off-the-tee, and on approach. I think it’s safe to avoid investing any equity in him and not feel like you’re missing out. — Justin Bailey


Kiradech Aphibarnrat 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 250-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,700 DraftKings; $8,500 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2016-18): T-15, N/A, T-44
  • Tee times: 12:54 p.m. ET Thursday; 9:47 a.m. ET Friday

Kiradech has made the cut in both of his appearances at the Masters, but I am not that interested in investing any equity on him considering he’s lost strokes on approach in six of his seven events this season. — Justin Bailey


Corey Conners 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 250-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,600 DraftKings
  • Masters History (2015-2018): T-73, N/A, N/A, N/A
  • Tee times: 8:30 a.m. ET Thursday; 11:15 a.m. ET Friday

Conners is the last man in the field after claiming victory Sunday at the Valero Texas Open. This won’t be his first trip, though. He qualified as an amateur in 2015 and missed the cut.

I think his ball striking is in good enough shape to make the cut, but not much more than that. But considering he was in a Monday qualifier last week, Conners even having a Thursday tee time for The Masters is one of the crazier stories we’ve seen in golf. — Joshua Perry


Aaron Wise 2019 Masters Odds, DFS Pricing

  • Odds to win: 300-1
  • DFS pricing: $6,600 DraftKings; $8,300 FanDuel
  • Masters history (2014-18): Never qualified
  • Tee times: 9:03 a.m. ET Thursday; 11:48 a.m. ET Friday

I’m not really seeing much from Wise. He’s never played here, and the game isn’t anywhere near what it would need to be to compete against this field. Nothing on him for me this week.

Maybe in a couple years when he’s seen the course a few times, he’ll have a better shot. But he’s got work to do with his irons and putter. — Joshua Perry
