With the start of the Masters tomorrow, I’ll be updating you on the odds movements after every round and give you the best bets, in my opinion.
So be sure to check back in tomorrow after the first round and make sure you sign up for FanDuel here to receive a $1000 risk-free bet.
With that in mind, here are some of my favorite prop bets you can find on FanDuel ahead of the tournament start.
First Round Leader
Jordan Spieth +3400
Look, I’ve been hard on Jordan Spieth over the last couple of years since his performance has dropped off, and his 2019 Masters start was a garbage 75. But he opened with a 66 in 2018 and finished third, as well as a 66 in 2016 when he finished T2. There was another 75 sandwiched in between those two 66 scores, but the point is that Spieth can get it going early at Augusta. He may not be a guarantee, but then nothing in golf is.
I should also mention that after Spieth’s opening round 75 in 2019, he followed that up with rounds of 68-69-71 which brought him up to a T21 finish.
Ian Poulter +6000
If you’re looking for someone with a little bit longer odds for a first-round prop, Poulter may be your guy. Sure, he’s rubbed plenty of us the wrong way over the years, thanks to the Ryder Cup, but don’t let that sway you. In 2019, he got off to a great start with an opening-round 68. His last start was October 18th at the CJ Cup, so he should be well-rested.
Sungjae Im +1000
There are so many great options here, from PGA Championship winner Colin Morikawa to Matthew Wolff, whom I included in my opening Masters odds piece. I don’t want to give you Wolff here again, even though I think he can contend this week. So I’ll roll with Sungjae Im instead. Im had a win, a second-place finish, two third-place finishes, and seven top 10s in 2020. The win came at PGA National, which isn’t the easiest place to win down the stretch.
Scottie Scheffler +750
ClubProGuy included Scheffler as his first-round leader, and that very well could happen, but the real bet here is Scheffler as best first appearance. Scheffler finished up 2020 with a T4 in the PGA Championship, T4 in the Northern Trust, and a fifth-place finish in the Tour Championship. While he only managed a T32 at the Houston Open, he finished with a final round 65. There’s really good value here.
Hole-in-One By Player
Jon Rahm +4300
Look, this is a longshot, but Rahm has made two hole-in-ones in two days while practicing at Augusta. Of course, one of those was a gimmick skipped shot across the water at 16, but it is what it is. If he can make two in two days with no fans present, who’s to say he won’t make a third over the next four days?

Bryson DeChambeau/Brooks Koepka +6500
What could possibly be better than having Bryson and Brooks battling for one and two on Sunday? Honestly, other than seeing Tiger at the top of the leaderboard, there probably isn’t a better storyline than Bryson and Brooks going back and forth.
