- Tiger Woods enters Round 3 of the Masters as the betting favorite to win.
- Our experts detail their favorite bets for Round 3, including one golfer with odds too good to pass up.
After two rounds we have a five-man tie atop the leaderboard at Augusta, with a familiar name favored to win it at 6-1. Hat tip to you Mr. Woods.
The field is down to 65 players after the cut, but that didn’t stop our experts from firing away on their favorite bets for Round 3.
Below, they’ll hit on three matchups of interest, one Round 3 leader with value, and two outright futures. Good luck!
Bet: Charles Howell III over Phil Mickelson (+105)
Both Howell and Mickelson have been playing well through the first two rounds of the tournament. Howell’s ball-striking has been stellar, hitting 75% of greens in regulation so far, which isn’t far off from his 75-week average.
Mickelson has hit just 61% of greens in regulation — granted, a lack of greens in regulation has never held Phil back before with his elite putting and work around the greens, but I’ll take the plus-money with Howell who just fired off a round of 67.
Bet: Jason Day 9-1 to win the Masters.
