I've had a trawl through the piles of 2019 Masters Betting Tips posts to see who the top tipsters fancy, and to figure out what names are emerging most.

Rory McIlroy is the outright Masters favourite, ranging from +700 to +850, despite this being the one major that has always eluded him. It's reasonable that McIlroy, who's finished top ten in seven of eight starts this year, leads the odds; but looking at the top four, it's clear that name value is (as usual) giving certain players a bump. Dustin Johnson (+1000), Justin Rose (+1200), and 42-year-old Tiger Woods (+1200) are next on the list on these most trusted betting sites that they list here. Meanwhile, world no. 7 Brooks Koepka, who's won three of his last six majors and has steadily improved over his three career starts at Augusta, is at +2000 or longer.

Don't forget my own 2019 US Masters Betting Tips post.
And my Long Odds Only 2019 US Masters Betting Tips post.

A nice one to kick off is Philip Kiedel's Masters piece which list all the favourites and includes a "Why He Will Win" and "Why He Wont Win" paragraph for each which is a nice touch.  I especially liked the line under why Jon Rahm wont win.....

"Rahm has a temper problem, and that’s not a good thing to have on Augusta’s notoriously nasty greens."

Doesn't Sergio have one too??!!

The Racing Post's Steve Palmer picks Matsuyama 33/1, Rahm 18/1, Scott 45/1, Watson 35/1.

Neil McLeman in the Mirror plays it safe (Like Me!) and lists quite a few names including McIlroy, Rose, Molinari and Fleetwood but I like his long odds pick of Charley Hoffman at 100/1 to go well.

There's a nice Masters Betting piece in ScienceTells (author not listed) which highlights Brooks Koepka as being the best value in the field at 28/1.  He didn't play last year because of a wrist injury but has bettered his finish every time he has played Augusta.

Ben Coley is one of the best tipsters in the business and he has a comprehensive review and video in Sporting Life.  He lists Justin Thomas, Fowler, Oosthuizen, Matsuyama and Leishman as the best value in the field.

Gary Trask does a nice run through of what it takes to win The Masters and chooses Marc Leishman as his pick.

Golf Monthly do a pretty good job of previewing the Masters picking Fowler, Scott, Kuchar, Cameron Smith and Matt Fitzpatrick as their top five bets. Writer Tom Clarke also points out that Matt Fitzpatrick at long odds has the added advantage of having one of the world's most experienced caddies Billy Foster on the bag.

Steve Carroll in National Club Golfer is one of the few, despite his amazing Masters record, to tip Jordan Spieth.  He does a nice job in pointing out that Spieth's putting stats are actually quite decent this season and the fact that you can get away with murder off the tie in Augusta means he has a chance!
