Top Nationalities Markets
As well as the usual win and place markets, major championships such as The Masters offer up a whole array of support markets where we can look to find extra value. In this case, I am focussing on the top nationalities and have found what I think are three gems for us.
Rob’s Betting Tips
Top English Player
The top English Player market is dominated by many experienced players with much history of Augusta National. Still, it is last week's runner up Matt Wallace who has grabbed my attention here. That result was Matt's third top 40 in four events, and he has progressive form here, having missed his first cut and proceeding to finish in the top 40 last year. TPC Four Seasons, where he was runner up last week, is set up like Augusta to attract the best players, and that preparation will have been ideal. Matt has a great short game, and his long game (he was 3rd for the week in total driving) is coming together at just the right time. I have backed him with 3 Points Win at 11/1.
Top Continental European Player
John Rahm and Viktor Hovland are the stand out favourites in a top-heavy European betting market. Rahm has been consistent here without ever really contending, and his golf of late has been scratchy, whilst Hovland has no top 40s in his last three events and finished 32nd here two years ago on his debut. Neither gives huge cause for excitement, whereas Garcia, who won here in 2017, finished 5th in the match play and 9th in his last stroke-play event in Florida. Sergio is a seasoned campaigner and arrives in some of the best form he has enjoyed for many years. I think he will be very close to contending this week, and that should be enough to secure the top Continental European barring any magic from the other front market two. He is worth a bet with 4 Points Win a 4/1.
Top South African Player
The top South African market is made up of just the four runners, and given the absence of any sort of form for Charl Schwartzel, Frittelli only needs to perform better than two of them to take the spoils. Market favourite Louis Oosthuizen has been slid but unspectacular recently with a host of missed cuts without getting even close to contending for any titles. Christian Bezuidenhout also has just one top 10 in his last eight starts, so neither is flying by any means. Frittelli looked in great touch at the matchplay where he was knocked out in the quarter-finals, having beaten Dustin Johnson en route. He finished 5th last year, and his excellent long game should set him apart from his other two countrymen (they all gave great short games). He is another value selection with 4 Points Win a 3/1.
