One thing I have noticed in recent years is the last two European winners Sergio Garcia and Danny Willett have a certain affinity for Crans-sur-Sierre golf club in Switzerland. At first glance we think that in the Alps course would not be a great correlation as hitting the ball a long way has never been an advantage. We know hitting long and accurate at The Masters has always been a positive and no one on the European Tour hits the ball longer than the Dane Lucas Bjerregaard who is fast developed a liking for European Masters venue. He has been over on the PGA tour in recent weeks and has been acclimatizing with a win over Tiger Woods in the World Matchplay Quarter Final the highlight. Last week was a poor week for the Dane at the Valero Texas Open and we need to forgive him which at the price we can.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Lucas Bjerregaard – each way @66/1 (67.00) Paddy Power</strong></em></a></p><h2><strong>First Round Leader</strong></h2><p>Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth have dominated this market more than any other competitors in recent years, in fact the Texan Jordan Spieth has been the first round leader three times in the past five seasons. The Englishman Justin Rose’s domination has been over a longer sample, three times winning the market with three other top 5 finishes in the last thirteen seasons.</p><p>In recent years the other player to regularly feature at the top of the first round leaderboard is Charley Hoffman winning once and placing three times in only five attempts. The forty-one year old Californian has been something of a slow burner throughout his career and it is only recently he has become a regular qualifier for the US Masters. When I started to write this article he opened 100/1 in a place, now down to 50/1 sadly but the most likely winner after an impressive week at the Texas Open.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets </strong></h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=95095aa3-ae41-43ba-886d-99a97893c4a3" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Charley Hoffman - each way @50/1 (51.00) Boylesports </strong></em></a></p><h2><strong>Top Asian</strong></h2><p>Hideki Matsuyama will always be favourite for this market which brings value to the other selections when we consider he is always over-hyped. We have plenty of alternatives to analyse starting with Kiradech Aphibarnrat who has become a global player/character winning many friends with his cavalier approach. He is a serious competitor who has the ball striking needed to prosper at Augusta national proven by a 15<sup>th</sup> place on debut in 2016. Si Woo Kim the 2017 Players Championship winner, played well last week at the Texan Open and 24<sup>th</sup> here last year is the most viable alternative to the favourite. Satoshi Kodaira winner of the Heritage Classic and 28th on debut last year must be considered.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets </strong></h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Si Woo Kim @9/2 William Hill</strong></em></a></p><h2><strong>Place Markets, Top 10, Top 20</strong></h2><p>Players with impressive records in the place markets since the millenium are recent Valspar winner Paul Casey with eight top 20 finishes. Veteran and former champion Fred Couples also with eight top 20 finishes and still churning them out well into his Senior tour career. Another veteran and previous champion Vijay Singh is still competitive on the main tour as a top 10 finish at the Honda Classic last month proved and with seven top 20s since 2002 looks a good bet. Matt Kuchar with four top 10 finishes in the last nine years and only once outside the top 30, he comes here in fine form having just finished 2<sup>nd</sup> to Kevin Kisner in the World Matchplay.</p><h2><strong>Recommended Bets</strong></h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Matt Kuchar – Top 10 @9/2 (5.50) Bet365 </strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Paul Casey – Top 20 @5/4 (2.25) Ladbrokes </strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829" target="_blank" title="Golf Betting Odds"><em><strong>Vijay Singh – Top 20 @14/1 (15.00) Coral</strong></em></a></p><h2><strong>Related articles:</strong></h2><ul> <li><strong><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/pro-betting-tips-for-us-masters-2019/89739/" title="Pro Betting Tips for US Masters 2019">Pro Betting Tips for US Masters 2019</a></strong></li></ul>
