This is your yearly reminder to open your work calendar and set your out-of-office for Thursday-Sunday. It’s officially Master Week! The Masters brings added joy to spring. In the Thomas household, we make pimento cheese sandwiches, kick our feet up and enjoy the year’s best tournament. The golfers have already arrived at Augusta National Golf Club, and the patrons can be seen walking the course, soaking in the practice rounds, and grabbing bundles full of Masters merchandise.

Becoming a Masters champion is something that most kids dream of. It’s something they aspire to be their entire lives. From the second they stroll down Magnolia Lane, there’s only one mission. That’s to have the green jacket draped over them on Sunday and earn a lifetime invitation to the Masters. Defending Champion Scottie Scheffler is PointsBet’s favorite to win the tournament at +700. Scheffler is the deserving favorite this week. He’s the OWGR World No.1 golfer, the defending champion, and is gaining the most strokes per round this season.

It’s challenging to recommend betting on Jon Rahm (+900), Rory McIlroy (+700), or Scheffler (+700) at these low prices. Since 2010, Dustin Johnson has been the only golfer priced under +1000 to win the Masters. In that time, the average odds of the winner is +3700. It’s also challenging to recommend loading your betting card with many long shots. There have only been two winners priced higher than +6000 since 2010. Winning a major is hard; winning at Augusta is nearly impossible, especially for first-time participants.

If there were to take a long shot to win, it would probably bet on Min Woo Lee at +6600. The Australian finished T14 here last season in his Masters debut. Lee also has had a couple of close calls on Tour this season. His T6 at the Players should give him more confidence in his second trip to Augusta.
