I’ve gone ahead and listed my three favorite 2014 Masters Golf matchup betting picks for you to devour. What this bet means is that you’re betting on a head-to-head between two specific golfers. Whomever finishes higher on the leaderboard wins the bet. It’s a really fun way to attack the PGA betting board throughout the year, especially if you don’t trust certain commodities in the futures market. Here’s a taste of the best 2014 Masters Golf matchup betting picks on the board. Check out the full list in the sportsbook!
The Masters Golf Matchup Betting Picks
Adam Scott -110 over Rory McIlroy -120
With Tiger Woods out of the running, this immediately becomes the 2014 Masters Golf Matchup to watch in betting picks. Adam Scott should be favored, but Rory’s inescapable public backing gives him the edge in terms of odds. Personally I prefer Scott, but both have struggled closing out tournament so far this season. I have a gigantic fear of Rory reacting to pressure on any kind of stage since he just seems insanely prone to massive collapses. Scott is more of a plugger and I expect Scott to finish in the top-5 if not win it all. I wouldn’t even dream of saying the same about Rory.
Phil Mickelson +105 over Adam Scott -135
People just love to doubt Phil don’t they? In the last 13 seasons, Phil has finished in the top-5 an astounding 9 times and won the event three times. He’s coming off a brutal showing where he placed 54th last year, which was his worst outing in two decades. Mickelson has also bounced back from a bad 27th place finish in 2011 by finishing third in 2012. Nobody has boasted as much success at Augusta in the field than Lefty and that experience will pay off, which is why I’m making him the take in my 2014 Masters Golf Matchup betting picks against the defending champion. Again I have Scott finishing in the top-5, so you can guess where I have Lefty. I love him to win it all without Tiger Woods playing in the Masters this year.
Jordan Spieth -105 over Luke Donald -125
Doesn’t the story seem like it’s breaking Spieth’s way at the 2014 Masters? With Tiger Woods out of action, it just feels like It’s the perfect moment for golf’s next phenom to take center stage. Spieth is a 20-year old rookie of the year winner, and Donald is a 36-year old Englishman who is as erratic at the Masters as they come. Spieth is getting a great number in this specific head-to-head and should be an automatic take in your 2014 Masters Golf Matchup betting picks.
