Justin Thomas & Jordan Spieth Finding Peak Form Coming into the 2021 Masters Tournament

The 2021 Masters Tournament is scheduled to begin on Thursday 8 April and finishes on Sunday 11 April.

Who will win The Masters 2021?

Justin Thomas (+1200 Bovada) and Jordan Spieth (+1200 Bovada) are the form players coming into the tournament, with Thomas having just won The Players Championship and Spieth has had six top-15 finishes in his last seven starts, culminating in him winning the Valero Texas Open the Sunday prior to The Masters.

There’s a definite argument that the betting value has now gone with regards to having a wager on Spieth to win the 2021 Masters Tournament, but there is no disputing his form over the past two months.

Spieth has already won one green jacket and has also claimed a hugely impressive four top-three finishes in seven starts at The Masters.

It’s also worth noting that over the past two months, only Collin Morikawa (another player worth serious consideration if looking to back a winner at The Masters) and Thomas have gained more strokes per round on approach shots than Spieth.


What to Look Out for Before Betting on the US Masters Golf

It’s certainly worth looking at those players with a good course record. It’s also worth paying attention to those who have performed well at the The Players Championship, The Honda Classic, WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and Valero Texas Open.

With regards to the course itself, Augusta tends to favor the big hitters, while the best scramblers also have a definite advantage, with the outcome often coming down to those that can benefit most on the par fives.

With the layout at Augusta ensuring that many of the fairways have a natural dogleg from right to left, there can also be a definite advantage to right-handed golfers.


US Masters 2021 Odds

Defending champion Dustin Johnson is a marginal favorite to retain his title with the leading sportsbooks. The other leading contenders in the betting market are Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy.


What happened at the 2020 Masters Tournament?

The 2020 Masters Tournament was rescheduled for November, having been postponed from its usual start date in early April as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dustin Johnson was the 2020 Masters champion with a record score of 268, 20-under-par, to finish five strokes ahead of Im Sung-jae and Cameron Smith.
