My Masters winning picks are to be consumed with a little salt of your own analysis, but I find golf betting odds to be reasonably easy to handicap. Why is that? Primarily because golf is very much a game of “form”. When golfers are running well they tend to remain that way, and when struggling the same. It is probably more of a mental game than a physical game at the end of the day.
Any individual sport functions this way and is very different than a team sport in this sense- there are no teammates to pick up the slack when things go wrong. Golf is probably a paramount example of this and I will factor it heavily into my Masters winning picks.
In fact, I used exactly this technique when I picked Henrik Stenson to win the British Open last year. Enough resting on my past victories however- who are my Masters winning picks for the 2017 Masters in Augusta, Georgia? Well let’s break it down a bit and see who jumps out.
Masters Winning Picks – DJ
DJ DJ DJ. DJ. Now talk about a golfer being in form. Dustin Johnson has been on an explosive upward trajectory since becoming the baby daddy to Paulina Gretzky’s, well, babies. Having already won life’s prize by marrying the Great One’s daughter, DJ went on to have a huge 2016. Not only did he take (and still holds) the No.1 spot on the PGA Tour, but he also was (and is) the Tour’s leading money winner.

So, how is his recent form? With three recent PGA wins DJ looks to be in very good form. The graduate of Coastal Carolina University (kegger anyone?), Johnson won the Genesis Open and the two subsequent World Golf Championship events in a space of 35 days. In other words, Dustin Johnson is in fine form and and is at the top of my Masters winning picks.
If you are planning to bet PGA golf online, then we should look at the odds for Dustin Johnson to win the 2017 Masters. Currently “the DJ” is the clear favorite in the eyes of the pasty and pale bookmaking team here at RealBet, and is listed at a fairly lean +550 to win the Masters. Of course we always want the price to be bigger and longer, but we have to be careful not to be greedy and work with the odds bestowed upon us.

But what of the competition? Is there any cause for pause among his competitors achievements this year? Short answer, no. In fact the names of the winners of the 2017 PGA Tour seem pretty unfamiliar. One victory by Jordan Spieth. None by Jason Day. Rory McIlroy who? Now you can argue that McIlroy has yet to return to form from nagging injury, and that Day has had family health issues to deal with and that would be fair. Spieth? Not sure. Regardless, the three other top golfers in the world are clearly not in form.
PGA Masters Betting – Dustin Johnson Pick
So in my mind that leaves DJ the clear favorite in terms of golf’s top five or so. He has every big club skill needed to play a course like Augusta, and some newly honed putting skills, to make this his second PGA Major Championship. But before we go awarding him the hardware just yet, there are a couple of dark horses rounding in to shape this year with excellent finishes that may play spoiler. For those Masters winning picks tune in later this week for my inside scoop. I will also be taking a look at Masters Tournament Match Ups as lucrative golf proposition bets.
