Justin Rose Is A Top Tip To Be First Round Leader At The US Masters

The US Masters is fast approaching and we've taken a look at a couple of side markets that have taken our fancy for Augusta, with Justin Rose tipped to enjoy a rollicking start to proceedings in Georgia on Thursday...

US Masters Outright Betting Preview.

First Round Leader

Rose has an excellent record at Augusta as he hasn't missed a cut in any of his eleven visits, finishing tied 2nd in 2015 and tied 10th in 2016. The 2013 US Open winner clearly has the game for a venue that puts a premium on course management and he looks great each-way value to be first round leader at 33/1 (Ladbrokes).

The Olympic Gold medallist is part of the 10.56am group with Brandt Snedeker and Jason Day on Thursday, so they may just avoid the worst of the forecast windy conditions, and he is bidding to enhance a sensational record in the first round of this tournament.

Rose has been in the top-five of the leaderboard at the end of the opening day in five of his eleven visits to Augusta, holding or co-holding the lead on three occasions, and we really like his chances this week as he boasts a first round average of 70.73 at The Masters.

Rose has yet to miss a cut in 2017, securing five top-fifteens, including three top-fives, in six stroke-play events and it is well worth noting that he ranks sixth on the PGA Tour for first round scoring average (68.57).

Top GB And Ireland

The usual big guns are toward the head of the market for the Top British And Irish Player but we fancy that there might be some each-way value to be had with Matthew Fitzpatrick.

No doubt inspired by seeing his fellow Sheffield local, Danny Willett, winning the first major of the year in 2016, Fitzpatrick will be relishing the chance to show off his wares. It bodes well that he has experience of Augusta already, having missed the cut in 2014 before improving to tie for 7th twelve months ago, and there is no doubting his quality.

A three-time winner on the European Tour, including his success at the season-ending Dubai World Championship in 2016, Fitzpatrick tied for 13th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational recently and he is well worth an each-way punt to be top GB and Ireland player at 18/1 (Boylesports).

Top-20 Finish

Angel Cabrera is very much a 'horse for the course' having won the US Masters in 2009 and the veteran Argentine always seems to raise his game when visiting Augusta, where he has missed the cut just four times in seventeen visits.

Cabrera tied 24th at last year's tournament but we are backing him for a top-20 finish (7/1 with Betfred), particularly off the back of his morale-boosting hole-in-one to finish the Houston Open on Sunday.
