Not quite sure who you like to win this year’s Masters? Well no need to worry as there’s still plenty to wager on in the 2010 Masters prop bets. Today, let’s look at the odds on which golfer will be the tournament leader after Round 1.
Tiger Woods (+800): The clear favorite in this one is the world’s best golfer, Tiger Woods. We all know what the all-time great has accomplished, as he’s got six Green Jacket’s and 14 major championships. However, as hard as it is to believe, he hasn’t won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open, close to two years ago.
While we’d never tell you to stay away from Woods as the leader after one, proceed with caution. Remember, we all know the personal scrutiny he’s been under as of late, in regards to his recent marital infidelities and time spent in rehab.
Woods is still the favorite to win this tournament. Just don’t expect him to be on top of the leader board after day one.
Ernie Els (+1400): With all the talk surrounding Woods, as well as two time champion Phil Mickelson (+1200), the safest bet on the board might be Els at +1400.
Why Els? The 40-year-old South African has simply been phenomenal in 2010, as he has already won two tournaments, the World Golf Championships in mid-March and the Arnold Palmer Invitational just two weeks ago. He also comes into this tournament as a highly seasoned veteran, having won three majors, and finished in second place at Augusta in both 2000 and 2004.
One drawback on Els though could be his recent play on golf’s biggest stage. Since that 2004 second place finish, Els hasn’t finished better than tied for 27th, and has missed the cut in each of the last three years. Be weary of Els at Augusta, as you get ready to make your 2010 Masters prop bets.
Jim Furyk (+3000): Not feeling comfortable with Els and looking for someone with better odds? Jim Furyk may be your guy.
There’s nothing sexy about Furyk’s game: He isn’t particularly showy or emotional, and isn’t a big driver off the tee. However he’s been surprisingly efficient on tour, as he’s got 14 championships to his credit, including the 2003 U.S. Open.
Also, keep in mind, that much like Els, Furyk comes into this tournament hot, having won the Transitions Championship just three weeks ago, in a one stroke victory over K.J. Choi.
Furyk has had two fourth place finishes and tied for 10th last year.
Angel Cabrera (+5000): Because Cabrera doesn’t play a ton of PGA Tour events (spending most of his time in Europe), he doesn’t get nearly the respect he deserves from the North American golf audience. But isn’t 50-1 pretty good odds on a guy who has won two major championships, and is the defending champion at this event? Cabrera may be the best wager of all in the 2010 Masters prop bets.
