The 87th Masters: Latest betting with Koepka in charge

As the opening major of the season heads into the weekend, the 87th Masters look likely to add another name to the Champions Locker Room.

With Brooks Koepka holding a commanding lead into the third round, the American leads by three strokes after carding a 65-67 across his opening 36 holes.

As weather forced an early suspension of play on Friday evening, second rounds were yet to be concluded and play on Saturday is in serious doubt.

So will Koepka complete his journey to the Butler Cabin? Here’s the market latest.


Imperious Koepka

After picking up back-to-back US Open and PGA Championships, many expected Koepka to add a Green Jacket in no time.

Indeed, after coming runner-up to Tiger Woods in his own sensational fifth Masters victory in 2019, Koepka’s entrance into the Butler Cabin seemed inevitable.


However, after injury, the Floridian struggled with his game and after then leaving the PGA Tour for LIV last year, many wondered if Koepka would ever get the chance again.

Again healthy and motivated to prove a point, Koepka has been dominant up to this point this week and is 11/8 with BetVictor to win his fifth major.


Can ‘Rahmbo’ charge?

Weather was forecast to play a major role in this year’s tournament and sure enough, conditions turned decidedly cooler, windier and wetter late on Friday when play was suspended.

With Saturday looking sketchy to say the least, it is possible that a fifth day may be needed.

After play was suspended early, much could swing on the resumption of the second round and for now, the closest to Koepka is defending US Open champion, Jon Rahm.


A Masters best of fourth in 2018, the Spaniard would love to follow in the footsteps of Jose Maria Olazabal, Sergio Garcia and the great, Seve Ballesteros.

Rahm will need to keep his often fiery temper cool in what will be difficult conditions, but to win the Green Jacket from here is 2/1 with BoyleSports.


Jason’s Day?

One of our big picks of the week, had it not been for a forgettable final four holes on Friday, Jason Day would be in a considerably stronger position.

Sitting at -9 on the 15th tee, the Australian marked a double-bogey 7 on his card and dropped two further shots to end on -5.


Seven off the lead, Day quietly moved up the leaderboard through Friday though and is back to his best form on both fairway and green.

But is his chance for a second major now gone? A 28/1 shot, again with BoyleSports says otherwise.


Elsewhere, defending champion Scottie Scheffler was out of sorts in hitting a 75 on Friday and starts the weekend a full 11 shots off the pace.

Can Scheffler stage a comeback? A 13/2 shot with Betfred for a top 5 finish is still manageable.


Sam Bennett, meanwhile, has enjoyed a stunning Masters debut.

Set to be crowned Leading Amateur by some distance, the Texan has dropped just one shot so far this week.

It would be no surprise to see the 23-year-old fall off somewhat over the weekend, but remains spurred on by the motivation of his father’s passing.

A 18/5 punt with PariMatch for the same top 5 finish, looks inviting.
