Welcome to Moving Day at the Masters. Scottie Scheffler's got a pretty good grip on this Tournament right now, so pressure's on him to keep pressing forward and not give these guys any life. Saturday is usually set up for scoring at The Masters, so it should be fun to see who can make a push.
On the gambling side, went 3-1 on H2H matchups yesterday and 2 of my 3 longshot live picks (Varner +9000 and Na +15000) cut those numbers in half. Looking to duplicate that today.
Scottie is just about close to even money with his 5 shot lead. 5 other golfers have held a 5 shot lead at the Masters thru 36 holes and only one failed to close it out.
Given the leaderboard and prices above, I think there's some value in Will Zalatoris making a push from -1. If you don't have a bit on him already, you can pretty much jump in at his pre-tournament price of +3500. He still hasn't played a round over par at Augusta in 6 rounds now. Hasn't gone super low either, but he's capable of changing that.
Best Round 3 Score - Joaquin Niemann +3300 - Perhaps he fed off this sort of thing but most don't. He played great with all the Tiger hubbub surrounding him and he'll be freed from that tomorrow.
Hole in One in Round 3 - Yes +650 - It hit yesterday at +400. Tougher pins today but it's such a fun bet.
Marc Leishman (-114) over Seamus Power - Both at +4 but I like Leishman's history here over Power's inexperience.
Cameron Champ (+150) over Tony Finau - Couple of bombers here. Just don't think Tony has been playing well enough to warrant being this heavy a favorite.
Tiger Woods (-117) over Kevin Kisner - Sorry Kiz. Moving day belongs to El Gato Grande.
Dustin Johnson (-210) over Kevin Na - SPICY pairing after these two had a dustup at the Match Play last year. Former champ will be on a mission.
Let's have a Saturday…. at the Masters.
