2014-watsonb01-360

AUGUSTA, GA (TheSpread) – Bubba Watson showed the experience of being a past Masters champion on Sunday, claiming his second green jacket by winning the 2014 Masters.

View Current Golf Odds

Watson had a strong final round, shooting a 3-under 69 to finish the Masters at -8 overall, three shots ahead of Jonas Blixt and Jordan Spieth for the championship.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Watson had 25/1 odds to win this weekend’s major, which means a $100 wager on him to prevail will pay out an additional $2,500.

Spieth started strong but had back-to-back bogeys on holes No. 8 and No. 9, which seemed to turn the day around, as Watson birdied those holes and never looked back. Spieth finished with an even-par 72 on the day while Blixt shot a 1-under 71.

Adam Scott 9/1

Scott is the defending champion of this event and is currently second in the world rankings.

Getting the win last year has seemingly opened up the next level of his game.

Day is fourth in the world rankings and seeking his first major championship victory.

He has finished in the top 10 in three of the last four major championship events.

Matt Every 150/1

HUMBLE, TX (ATS CONSULTANTS) – The PGA Shell Houston Open gets started Thursday morning. Here are a few golfers to consider for this event.

View Current Golf Odds

According to oddsmakers from BetDSI, Rory McIlroy is favored to win this event, as he has 9/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Dustin Johnson (14/1) and Henrik Stenson (16/1).

Here are our predictions for this weekend’s tournament.

Rory McIlroy 9/1

McIlroy has had a pretty good 2014 thus far, finishing in the top 10 in three of his last five tournaments and he has finished in the top 25 in all of them. Despite being off for a number of weeks, McIlroy should be dialed in for a strong showing with The Masters next week. Look for him to certainly be contending for this week’s title.

Hunter Mahan 28/1

Mahan is the 2012 champion of this event. He comes into the tournament ranked 32nd in the world and he has placed in the top 10 in four of his last six events. He had to withdraw during the Arnold Palmer Invite, but should be put right in the mix this weekend. Mahan hasn’t had a win since this event in 2012, so he is due to get back to the top.

J.B. Holmes 90/1

Holmes is a longshot to win, but he has made the cut in seven of his eight tournaments this year, so he has a good
