US Masters Betting

The US Masters is one of the four biggest golf betting events of the year, with millions of golf fans around the world attempting to turn their knowledge and insight into the game of golf into a profit.

For many, the US Masters is the best golf betting event of the year, as the small field of 93 players makes it somewhat easier to make returns off the outright US Masters betting markets.
There are literally dozens of betting markets available on each day of the US Masters. Here are just a few things to think about if you’ve toyed with the idea of putting money on the year’s first Major Championship:

1. Bet Outright

The US Masters is a great outright betting opportunity, with only 93 golfers contesting the event and perhaps two dozen of these playing as legitimate title contenders. While picking the winner is a lottery, you can still make money off your outright bets if your selection finishes in the top five at the end of the tournament.

To do this you simply need to mark the ‘each way’ box on the betting slip when you place your US Masters bets in the outright betting markets. Doing so will double your stake, wagering half of it on your player finishing in the top five at the tournament. If he makes the top five your bet will be paid out at 1/4 odds. If your selection wins, you’ll also earn a full payout on the other half of your stake.

2. Hedge Your Bets

Only the boldest golf fan could predict who would win the US Masters. Rather than place a single bet on a single player, look to cover a spread of players. Expert tipsters recommend that you bet on the same number of players as there are places paid, which would mean five outright bets would be the ideal number for the US Masters.
Provided you don’t be on a short odds favourite, only one of your bets would have to place to cover your other bets and provide a small profit. If you’re an astute observer of the game, two or three of your bets could place, securing you an excellent payout on your US Masters bets.

3. Bet For Free

Why pay for your US Masters bets when you could use money offered by the best known and most trusted bookmakers in the United Kingdom? All top bookmakers have free bet offers running during the course of the US Masters. All you neeed to do to score a free bet is open an account, make a deposit and place your first bet.

Your bookmaker will match your first bet with a bet of equal value, and you can then use this bet on any sports betting market – no strings or complex play-through requirements attached! Using free bets will allow you to either halve the cost of your US Open bets or double the size of your bankroll for the tournament – you choose.
