Dustin Johnson -120 vs. Bryson DeChambeau
This line is actually pretty short. While DeChambeau is undoubtedly the most polarizing golfer in the game right now, DJ has been unstoppable at Augusta for the most part since finding his way back in 2015 with a T6. Since that first T10 finish in his career at Augusta, the world’s premier golfer has reeled off finishes of T4, T10, T2 and then his victory last November. DJ is the favorite to win this tournament for good reason, don’t fade him in matchups.
DeChambeau’s history The Masters is actually very comparable to DJ’s. He’s made the cut in all four appearances but has yet to break through with a T10. He has finishes of T21, T38, T29 and T34 last year. He’s got the kind of game to compete on any course and his length in specific should be beneficial at Augusta.
Until he breaks through take DJ as the more sure bet of the two.
Daniel Berger -135 against Collin Morikawa
Berger has three starts at Augusta, finishes of T10 in his debut followed up with a T27 and T32. He’s got the all-around game to compete at a course that tests a golfer’s all-around game. He’s been in solid form as well, most recently placing 9th at THE PLAYERS Championship.
Morikawa placed T44 in his first Masters start in November. With his ball striking ability he should be able to become a mainstay at Augusta but the putter is worrisome and with more limited history and as a younger player I’ll take Berger to best him this week.
Louis Oosthuizen -145 vs. Bubba Watson
Louis is a sneaky golfer it seems at every major and that’s been no different at Augusta in recent years after missing the cut in four of his first five trips. Since that stretch, Oosthuizen has made the cut seven consecutive times at Augusta with five T25 finishes highlighting that.
The two-time Masters champion hasn’t been the same player he once was. With his last three starts on Tour featuring 99th, 54th and 83rd place finishes, the current form isn’t there. In last year’s tournament, he placed 57th.
It’s a juicy line on Watson so it’s enticing for the public to jump on a two-time champion. Louis is the right bet here though.
