The US Masters 1st Round tees off at Augusta on April 10th and Boylesports can report that the players at the top end of the market are easy to back with four-time Masters Champion, Tiger Woods, now 11/1 having been installed at 5/1.
Rory McIlroy heads the betting at 8/1 but is very easy to back whilst last year’s winner, Adam Scott, is 11/1 to retain the title. Boylesports are paying 1/4 odds 1-2-3-4-5 places on the tournament and Ireland’s largest independent bookmaker has seen some support for a few outsiders in the field.
England’s Justin Rose has never won the US Masters and had his best result in 2007 when finishing tied fifth. He has been nibbled at and is now 28/1 from 33/1 whilst American player, Webb Simpson, has also been subject to support and is now 50/1 having been installed at 80/1.
Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “The top three players in the market are very easy to back at present but we expect to see business gathering pace this week before the “rush” begins next week.”
He added “We have laid hefty bets on both Justin Rose and Webb Simpson and as a result have had to slash both players’ prices as they stand to be big Ante Post losers for us.”
