Justin Rose Tipped For Augusta Glory At The 2018 US Masters

The 82nd edition of the US Masters gets underway at Augusta on Thursday and what a tournament it promises to be. The top-six in the betting could be covered by a small child's blanket and that is where we will start this preview...

The Big Six

The bookmakers have had their work cut out in trying to find a favourite in Georgia, with Jordan Spieth's strong showing in Houston last week (tied 3rd) propelling him to 11/1, with the 2015 champion still looking for redemption following his Masters meltdown of 2016.

Speaking of Masters meltdowns, Rory McIlroy is still hunting for the one elusive major title that continues to deny him a 'career grand slam' and the man who has finished in the top-ten in each of his past four appearances at Augusta is also available at 11/1.

Justin Thomas (11/1) is the 'form horse' in world golf right now as the FedEx Cup points leader has picked up four wins (including his maiden major title at the US PGA Championship) and five top-tens in his past 15 starts, while his two appearances at Augusta have yielded progressive finishes of 39th and 22nd.

World No.1, Dustin Johnson (12/1), finished 6th in 2015 and 5th in 2016 before missing last year's edition with a back injury when he had been a warm-order favourite.

Tiger Woods is the big talking point going into the first major of the year as the four-time Masters winner is bidding to land a green jacket for the first time in 13 years. The 42-year-old last won a major at the 2008 US Open but his rejuvenated form since returning from injury ensures he is as short as 14/1 ahead of his first appearance at Augusta in three years.

Justin Rose appears to be sneaking under the radar despite never missing a cut at Augusta and he has finished runner-up twice in the past three years following his valiant defeat to Sergio Garcia last year. Much will depend on how Rose putts this week but there is no questioning his form, with the Englishman racking up three wins and ten top-tens (including five top-fives) in his last 16 starts worldwide.
Tip #1: Justin Rose (each way) @ 14/1 with Betfred - 1/5 odds on 6 places.

First Round Leader

Rose is also worth a look in the 'first round leader' bracket too as he has finished in the top-five of the leaderboard after the first day's play in six of his 12 appearances at Augusta, leading or co-leading three times in the process. His first round scoring average is an impressive 70.75 in this event, while his average first round score on the PGA Tour this season is an impressive 69.00.
Tip #2: Justin Rose first round leader (each way) @ 20/1 with Boylesports - 1/5 odds on 6 places.

The Each-Way Selections

There is so much strength in depth to this field as Sergio Garcia (33/1) returns to defend his title, while the likes of Hideki Matsuyama (35/1), Jon Rahm (22/1), Rickie Fowler (25/1) and Paul Casey (22/1) are all looking to follow in the Spaniard's footsteps by winning their first major crown in Georgia.

Three-time winner Phil Mickelson (20/1) and two-time champion Bubba Watson (16/1) have enjoyed something of a resurgence in winning three PGA Tour titles between them in 2018 and are obvious threats.

It is Adam Scott who tempts us though as he bids to following Mickelson and Watson back into the winner's enclosure. The Australian tends to enjoy playing Augusta as he won the tournament in 2013 and has finished in the top-20 in six of his last eight visits.

US Masters Power Rankings.

Scott endured a tough 2017 campaign but still managed to top-ten at Augusta and there have been signs of better things to come this season, with Scott tipped to build on a couple of top-sixteen efforts so far.
Tip #3: Adam Scott (each way) @ 66/1 with Unibet - 1/4 odds on 6 places.

Matt Kuchar is another player in this field who could sneak under the radar and the 39-year-old has as fine course record, having secured four top-eight finishes in his last eight visits, including a tie for 4th in 2017.

The world No. 20 was able to peak for majors last year as he finished in the top-16 in all four, including a runner-up effort in The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, and he warmed up for the Masters with a tie for 8th in Houston on Sunday.
Tip #4: Matt Kuchar (each way) @ 55/1 with Unibet - 1/4 odds on 6 places.

Finally, Ryan Moore has finished in the top-fifteen of the Masters leaderboard on four occasions during his career, including a tie for 9th last year, and he is well worth considering at a massive price after he tied for 5th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last time out.
Tip #5: Ryan Moore (each way) @ 125/1 with Ladbrokes - 1/4 odds on 5 places.
