Sepp Straka v Francesco Molinari v Larry Mize

Francesco Molinari ($2.25)

Put a line through 1987 Masters winner Larry Mize, who won’t be featuring. Sepp Straka is in good recent form with his maiden win at The Honda but is on debut at Augusta. Molinari has played in 10 of the last 12 Masters and has four Top 30s. Expecting that experience to prevail.

Cameron Smith v Bryson DeChambeau v Paul Casey

Cameron Smith ($2.10)

Absolutely no idea how Smith is $2.10 here. He comes off a win in the Players, has Top 10 finishes in three of the last four Masters and is typically a very fast starter. DeChambeau and Casey have both been battling injury of late. Smith should be closer to the $1.60 mark.

Rory McIlroy v Brooks Koepka v Matt Fitzpatrick

Matt Fitzpatrick ($3.25)

Rory McIlroy has been a dreadful Round 1 performer in majors of late so happy to take him on as a favourite. Koepka is a major beast and has four Top 16s in his last six. The value here though is Fitzpatrick, who has four Top 10s in his last six starts and is expected to be a major contender here.
