One of the best parts of Masters week from a gambling stand point: the seemingly endless array of prop options.
We usually get the Top 5, Top 10s and Top 20s each week along with the first round leader option, but outside of that, it can be slim pickings during a normal week.
There are a couple that caught my eye this week.
Pick: Matt Wallace +450
Wallace is the co-favorite in the group of Masters first timers with Eddie Pepperell. He’ll also be up against guys like Lucas Bjerregaard, Keith Mitchell and Aaron Wise.
Everyone in this group will have those Augusta jitters teeing it up for the first time, so that’s a wash here.
With Wallace, we have decent form on our side heading in. Four of his last eight results were in the top 20 and he missed the cut just once in that time frame. In this group, no one outside of Justin Harding can match that type of consistency over the past couple months.
Augusta is a tough place the first time around, so a top 25 may be enough to win this bet for any of these players. We’ve seen a few months of good results from Wallace coming in and that’s what I’m looking for with this group.
