The 2021 Masters is back in its familiar slot this year, with the first Major of the year starting on April 8 at the iconic Augusta National in Georgia.

World number one Dustin Johnson added the Green Jacket to his wardrobe in November, with the tournament moved to the end of the campaign due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This time around, it should be back to its beautiful best with the patrons set to be in attendance and the weather should also be much better as the 93-strong field attempts to make history.

The Masters Betting Odds

Johnson is hoping to become the first golfer since Tiger Woods in 2002 to retain the Masters crown and DJ, who has a win to his name this year, is the 8/1 favourite to achieve this feat.

The American pair of Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau are both priced at 11/1, while Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy is 16/1 price to complete the Grand Slam.

However, our attention is on the bigger prices in the Masters market and which players could potentially slip under the radar heading into the tournament.

The Masters Long Shot Prediction

The Masters is a tournament like no other, with trends very important when trying to pick a winner.

The course demands so much from the field and, usually, those towards the top 30 in the world rankings are crowned champion.

Recent good form is also a plus, while many of the previous winners have won a tournament in the same calendar year.

Previous form at Augusta is also important, with no debutant winning in Georgia since 1979.

Patrick Reed to Win - BET NOW

 

The world number seven heads to Augusta in good form, having won the Farmers Insurance Open this season, while he has finished in the top 30 in his last two starts at The Players Championship and WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Reed needs no introduction to the tournament, having won it in 2018, and he knows exactly what it takes to get himself another Green Jacket.

Daniel Berger to Win - BET NOW

 

Berger has climbed to 15th in the world rankings after an impressive start to 2021 and he has made huge strides in the last 18 months, with victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am a particular highlight.

A few weeks ago, Berger claimed a share of ninth at The Players Championship and he has done well at Augusta in the past, recording a 10th-place finish in 2016.

Paul Casey to Win - BET NOW

The Englishman has yet to win a major but he has come close to ending that run on a few occasions, having finished tied-fourth at the 2016 Masters.

World number 19 Casey has a win to his name this year, having landed the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, while he has two top-five finishes to his name after some gutsy displays at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and The Players Championship.

In the past, Casey's putting has let him down at Augusta, but his strokes gained numbers are strong and this could be his year to end his wait for a Major.
