The Masters betting for the 2009 season is close at hand. Sports sites all across the Internet have been busy handicapping the Masters golf betting and with several months still left until the tournament kicks the Masters betting odds are shaping up nicely.
The Masters betting lines makers have one major wild card to deal with and that is the question of whether or not world number one Tiger Woods will play or not. The conjecture among the media and the Masters golf betting elite is that Woods will be at Augusta in April even if it means gnawing off his own leg and playing the Masters betting tournament with a peg for a prosthetic.
As such, the Woods is the early favorite in the Masters betting lines. The Masters golf betting lines early on make him somewhere a +175 favorite to take home yet another title at the Masters betting competition and add to his already ample collection of green blazers. But that’s no surprise considering he’s been the best player in the world for the better part of a decade and wins the Masters golf betting tournament about 40% of the time he enters them.
The man playing second fiddle to Woods in the Masters betting lines, as usual is fellow American Phil Mickelson. Despite losing his number two spot in the world ranking to Spaniard Sergio Garcia, the Masters betting minds still like Mick and have given him roughly +800 odds. Garcia is next on the Masters betting odds list with +1200 odds. Both of these men are exceptionally handy with their wedges and seem to have games perfectly suited for the challenges of Augusta. Mickelson is a two time winner in the Masters betting and has found ways to blow late leads at the Masters betting event on several other occasions. Without Woods in the field, Mickelson has to be a very attractive pick on the Masters betting board.
Padraig Harrington (roughly +1500) and Ernie Els (aprox. +2000) round out the top five in the Masters betting lines. This handful of players is none too short on talent and features multiple former winners of the Masters betting event. This is an awfully conservative list, though, and it lacks any of the up and coming players that many of the Masters betting aficionados think can do some real damage at this year’s event.
If the Masters betting fans are thinking of thinking of making a big play against the Masters golf betting odds don’t bet on these tried and true professionals and their relatively predictable lines in the Masters betting.
