Scottie Scheffler

  • Putting has not proven to be very important in Masters history, with players better off betting on golfers who are strong from the tee box until they are on the green. Scottie Scheffler is a standout in all non-putting stats and is the best bet at Augusta with +450 odds.
  • Betting on golfers who start late on Thursday and early Friday is a good bet because of extreme weather forecasts.

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Fading the putter is likely the best bet for the 2024 Masters, as Augusta National Golf Club ranks 49 out of 52 courses for the importance of strokes gained putting stats.

Valuing players at Masters betting sites who best fit at Augusta is a strong way to begin your research for the biggest major in golf. The ranking of strokes gained stats out of 52 courses on tour shows that bettors should look for golfers who hit the ball far and are strong around the green if they miss on approach. Augusta’s ranking relative to those 52 courses for major strokes gained stats are:

  • SG Off-the-Tee (OTT): 17/52
  • SG Approach the Green (APP): 16/52
  • SG Around-the-Green (ARG): 9/52
  • SG Putting (PUTT): 49/52

Those statistics clearly show that users of legal sports betting sites should focus on OTT, APP, and ARG strokes gained stats. With +450 odds at Bovada, it should come as no surprise that Scottie Scheffler dominates the field in nearly all of those stats when looking at the top five performers in players’ last 24 rounds.

How Will The Weather Influence Betting On The Masters?

Last week, the weather at the Valero Texas Open made it relatively easy to find the best bets for the tournament because of significantly better conditions for golfers who teed off Thursday afternoon and early Friday. The weather at the Masters this week appears to be chaos for all golfers per the National Weather Service. But, there is a slight advantage to golfers who tee off Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning.

Wave Thursday 8 AM-1 PM Thursday 1 PM-6 PM Friday 8 AM-1 PM Friday 1 PM-6 PM
Wind 20 MPH-22 MPH 18 MPH-20 MPH 14 MPH-18 MPH 18 MPH-20 MPH
Wind Gusts 30+ MPH 30+ MPH 25+ MPH 30+ MPH
Chance of Rain 62%-92% 21%-62% 0% 0%

Two golfers to target at Bovada in their tournament 3 ball bets with tee time later tee times on Thursday and earlier tee times on Friday are:

  • Ludvig Aberg +170 (1:48 PM/10:42 AM) over Bryson DeChambeau +170 (8:48 AM/11:54 AM) and Cameron Smith +180 (10:54 AM/2:00 PM)
