The-US-Masters-Augusta-National-16th-hole_2579209.jpg

The US Masters starts on Thursday 11th April 2013 and this year’s first golf major tournament will once again be held at the traditional Augusta National in Georgia where Bubba Watson won the tournament last year.

Tiger Woods is currently the bookmakers favourite this year at 7/2 (Betfred) with Rory McIllroy 8/1 (Ladbrokes) and Phil Mickleson an 11/1 (William Hill) shot.

There is plenty of each way value available for the tournament as always and if your selection finishes 2nd to Tiger Woods, Coral will refund your losing bet up to £100.

As the tournament approaches, we have asked our tipsters to give their best bets for the US Masters 2013 and the top betting tips they recommend.

Andy Clark

US Masters Winner?

Tiger Woods is far too short for me at 7/2 so I will be looking elsewhere for a bit of value and Adam Scott (28/1 with Betfred) can gloss over his British Open scars with a victory here, he has the Augusta experience and was tied 2nd here in 2011.

Round 1 Leader?

Jason Day has shot a low round at Augusta before, hitting a 64 around here in the 2011 US Masters and it is worth taking a punt on him to take a day 1 lead into the club house at 50/1 with William Hill.

Lively Outsider?

There are always a few outsiders who make the frame and Robert Garrigus (150/1 with Sky Bet) can blast his way around Augusta and run into a place.

Dave Coffey

US Masters Winner?

7/2 for Tiger is short but he will not be far off, he doesn't get my vote though – my money is on Big Phil Mickelson (12/1 at William Hill) to add to his three Green Jackets, he has won twice, and placed on 3 other occasions in the last 7 years.  In that timeframe (2006-2012) Tiger has not won the Masters.

Round 1 Leader?

Freddie Jacobson (100/1 with Betfred) looks a good each way value bet here, 19th at the Masters last year, he is in excellent form this year. Does not have the power of some, but has an exceptional short game – 'Drive for show, Putt for dough!!' 

Lively Outsider?

A cheeky place is not beyond Branden Grace who is overpriced at 200/1 with Skybet, a four time winner on the European tour last season – an excellent all round player who can hole everything on his day.  He can hit the ball miles when necessary which is important at Augusta these days

Ronnie Keir

US Masters Winner?

There is no way I am backing Tiger Woods at a ludicrously short-price of 7/2.  Instead I am behind the best of British in Luke Donald (40/1 with Coral), who was 4th here in 2011, and is far too big a price to ignore.

Round 1 Leader?

Luke Donald (40/1 with Coral) will lead from start to finish, so he is my tip to lead after round 1 (obviously)!

Lively Outsider?

Not been in form recently, but Ben Curtis (300/1 with William Hill) is a former major winner so knows what it takes to land a big one.  Maybe he can spring a surprise at huge odds this week.

Darrell Suter

US Masters Winner?

Phil MIckelson for me (12/1 at William Hill) seems very confident and has even helped Callaway design a new club for his Masters challenge – The 'Phrankenwood' club – if that is not commitment what is?

Round 1 Leader?

Justin Rose – at 18/1 with Coral – one of the best ball strikiers on tour and loves the Masters, is helped by an early tee time; should the weather interupt others teeing off later.

Lively Outsider?

Former Champ Zach Johnson is 125/1 EW with BetVictor, despite his lack of power he racks up finishes in the top 35 here, an excellent putter who will hit plenty of Greens in Regulation is always a danger.

Bet on the US Maters with Ladbrokes and if a British or Irish player wins the tournament you will get any pre-tournament bets refunded.

New Ladbrokes customers also get £40 to bet with when you deposit just £10.
