The form hasn’t been great of late and has laid entry into the valero texas, and then subsequent withdrawal shows that all is not quite rosy with dj. At the moment, justin thomas has got a great chance. Augusta is a second shot, golf course, and if he has the same ball, striking master class that he showed over the weekend at sawgrass to win the players championship, he could be a tough man to beat. However, for the big three the man for me is john ron course form well, he’s got it. Fourth, ninth and seventh over his last three visits to augusta current form. He’S got it already three top tens. This season, plus knocked out of the quarterfinals of the world match, played by an inspired scottie scheffler and the early arrival of his baby boy. Kappa means there’s going to be no off course, distractions for john ram this week either. However, his odds are probably going to be a bit too skinny for me to have a punt instead. Well, my romantic choice is lee westwood, obviously back to back runner up finishes at the arnold palmer and at the players, but for a bounce of a ball here or there he could easily have won either of those two weeks, he’s clearly enjoying his golf at the Moment he’s relaxed he’s happy in life, and it would be some story if just a couple of weeks shy of his 48th birthday after so many near misses lee westwood could finally get that major monkey off his back.
Who else do i, like? I really like calm smith runner up to dj back in november. Okay, he was five shots back, but i like everything about him. I, like his swagger. I like his creativity. I love his short game which is so important around augusta. I even like his mullet, and i also like his fellow countrymen mark leishman, i kind of understand how the odds are so big. He always plays well when he comes to augusta leash, it’s. Of course, he’s not comfortable around and enjoys playing and i’m gon na have an each way better than him too. Hello, friends, jeff feinberg, here with you from mail media network and oddschecker.com us here to talk about his 2021 pit to win the masters. It should be a great week. I certainly expect the course to play exponentially harder than it played last year when we saw dustin johnson. Take it down. A lot of early reports have indicated it’s going to be firm, it’s going to be fast. A lot of players who have been there have relayed that information even watching the women amateur play. We are seeing firm and fast it’s, exciting spieth. Will that put air into some of the numbers of guys that we are interested in betting? For me, i am going farther down the board uh i’m, going to find that range that found major champions. Last year, north of 25 to 1. we saw bryson cash’s u.s open at 30 last year, maurico flirt with 35 40 for his pga uh championship victory last year.
Yes, the last two masters champions have been quite a bit of chalk with dustin, johnson and tiger woods, but let’s not forget sergio baba reed all first time, major champions all north of that 40 to one number at augusta and for me it is daniel berger. He checks every single box has won twice since the covid restart, especially um i’m. Sorry, especially in the 2021 calendar year at pebble, beach had some quality showings throughout florida showed he was healthy out of the match play for me. It is daniel berger to wear that green jacket on sunday, as your 2021 masters champion, have a beautiful week. Friends what’s up everyone, eric patterson here from the score in the score bet with daniel berger. As my pick to win the 2021 masters we’re, avoiding some of the favorites this week, which is a little dangerous, considering how some of them are playing jt just won the players spieth just won in texas dj the defending champion can never count him out. Rom just had his baby, so you know he’s feeling good and of course, bryson will always be a threat wherever he tees it up, but i do think burger’s game can hold up around a tough augusta he’s proven in the past. He came 10th in his debut in 2016., no finish worse than tied for 32nd. He hasn’t played here since 2018, but i also think that could be a positive considering how different the last few years have been playing and then he’s playing great uh.
He just won at pebble beach, not that long ago came ninth at the players himself and then he had a bit of an injury issue at the haunted classic, but he came back played well at the match. Play so no concerns there. I think you know burger burger chips and putts it well. He hits it straight. Hits it long enough and his irons can get really hot, so there’s really no areas of his game that are too much of a concern. Um he’s, a grinder. You know he’s going to be there he’s going to be able to pull through on a sunday, so i really do like burgers chances at you know: 35 40 to 1, which are pretty good value on a top 15 player in the world. So off the board. A little bit, i hope you can find a winner out there for me it’s going to be daniel, berger and good luck. So we’ve got an interesting masters renewal this week to ponder we’re back in a traditional april, slot it’s hard to know with the event taking place in november last year. How much impact uh sort of softer conditions will have had on the eventual leaderboard? But you know immediately at top of the market this week uh, i would personally swerve dustin johnson um defending champions. Don’T have the best record here. You know a lot of people talk about the extra media commitments you have as defending champion um, but just behind him in the betting justin thomas, i think, holds quite a lot of appeal.
Um he’s got a good record here. All the right attributes to win a green jacket and he’s been playing some great golf this year and has won recently, but my main pick uh is englishman. Paul casey he’s also been playing some great golf this year, uh top five finishes pebble beach and sawgrass, which are both very testing events and, interestingly, he won the dubai desert classic on european tour uh an event which has quite a strong form line uh to augusta Uh and his his record of augusta himself is, is great. You know, he’s had top 15 finishes in four of his last six starts yeah um in november he opened with a 65, and you know if he just managed a level par final round. That would have been enough for another top 20 around here. So you know his form speaks for itself, paul casey, it’s time that you want a green jacket.
