THE US Masters has a special place in American sporting folklore, providing a lifetime of heartbreak, joy and punting fairytales along the way.
The first and perhaps biggest golfing major of the calendar year is held at the mythical Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia and will see resurgent Irishman Rory McIlroy begin as the $7.50 favourite to take home the famed green jacket awarded to the winner.
As always, the storylines heading into the Masters are fascinating.
Will the new breed of golf’s guns shine on the biggest stage, or could it be the old guard, led by the most famous sex addict in sporting history, Tiger Woods, that takes centre stage?
It’s not just the magical surroundings of Augusta, the fabled champions and the emotion that attracts us to the Masters — the betting markets are the stuff of golfing punter dreams.
The most popular golf gambling event comes with a bevy of attractive markets and, in a game that is often so difficult to predict, the odds are incredible generous for anyone capable of making the right choices with their betting account.

2019 US Masters green jacket betting selection
There’s a form line that can’t be ignored coming into this week’s Masters, and it goes something like this:
Second – winner – second – eleventh – third.
From just five US Masters campaigns, Jordan Spieth has already achieved more than many other greats of the game will do with 30 attempts.
Yes, there are some serious question marks around Spieth’s game of late, a faltering swing and struggles off the tee, but no one can deny the fact that Augusta seems to bring out the best in his game.
Offering $19 at most bookmakers certainly does not hurt our willingness to have a crack here.
Spieth’s driving has been wayward of late, but his putting is still ranked inside the top 10 on the PGA Tour.
Augusta does not punish poor driving as much as other courses on the tour may, leaving Spieth with a window to capitalise on his short game — the key to his past hot form in this tournament.
Our US Masters winner tip: Jordan Spieth at +1800 with 5Dimes
Best 2019 US Masters smokey and big odds predictions
It seems that every year, the US Masters brings forward an enormous outsider to provide real drama and give punters the kind of odds you’d usually only dream about.
Predicting the Masters dark horse is a difficult affair, but there is no shortage of quality in the field to choose from.
This year, we’ve set our sights on a consistent American that knows this course better than most.
Matt Kuchar is offering as much as +3900 with some bookmakers at the moment and could be one to sneak under the guard of bookmakers.
Kuchar has made the cut at Augusta in his last nine attempts and has finished inside the top five in 2012, 2014 and 2017.
Kuchar is a man that welcomes the pressure this tournament brings and in addition to the +3900 to win, he is also offering a very healthy +300 to place within the top 10 at 5Dimes..
