Fantasy guide and betting odds
Fantasy sports not only allow us to see the best players in the world in one of the most beautiful places, but also allow us to be competitive. Here are some free and paid options for fantasy golf during the Masters. To get an idea of the current favorites, we also check the current betting odds.
Free Fantasy Golf Option: PGA TOUR Fantasy Golf
The PGA Tour offers a fantastic free fantasy golf option. Each week the players select six golfers (four starters and two on the bench). These golfers earn points based on the week's performance. Players can move their golfers off the bench to the starting grid between rounds for the best results. Scoring is live and uses the exclusive PGA Tour Shotlink system, which allows players to follow their golfers shot by shot.
The total score adds up over three segments and the entire season to earn PGA TOUR Superstore gift cards. In addition, players can create public or private groups to compete directly against friends. If you're looking to set up a fantasy golf option for a small group of friends or colleagues specifically for the Masters, PGA TOUR Fantasy Golf is probably the quickest, easiest option.
PGA TOUR Fantasy Golf also makes it easy for casual golf fans to participate by providing free expert advice and statistics for the week's most popular selections. Would you like to try it yourself? Put up a lineup for the MyGolfSpy Readers Masters 2021 group to brag about the rights of your fellow spies.
Paid Fantasy Golf: FanDuel and Draftkings
As the undisputed leaders in DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports), both of them FanDuel and Draft kings offer paid fantasy golf tournaments. In this case, the word “daily” is a misnomer as the scoring is done over the course of a four-day tournament rather than a single round. Both locations have a very similar lineup selection system.
As with PGA TOUR Fantasy Golf, you will pick six golfers, but FanDuel and Draftkings have no bench. All golfers receive points for entry and golfers who miss the cut cannot be replaced. Another difference is the inclusion of a salary cap. Each golfer is assigned a dollar value based on their chances of winning. Players must select their six golfers while staying below the maximum salary cap. High-ranking players who are likely to win cost significantly more than underdogs. When choosing players like Dustin Johnson and John Rahm you will have to endeavor to fill the rest of the list with unfamiliar names.
Players can enter competitions for as little as one dollar and win cash based on the final leaderboard. The prize pool depends on the number of players, so a small competition may offer a better chance of winning. However, the big prizes come from competitions with hundreds, if not thousands, of submissions. Big tournaments like the Masters usually attract the biggest competitions. Draftkings also offers free contests if you'd like to try it out before wagering real money.
Note that Draftkings and FanDuel are legal in 43 states, as well as a few other countries. You need to check your location in order to play.
Masters 2021 betting odds
In addition to DFS, FanDuel and Draftkings offer sports betting online and in some physical locations in the US. Although the number of places that sports games are legal is very limited, a look at the betting odds can give us an idea of who the markets see as the best bets to win the Masters this year.
Betting odds are expressed as a + number (or sometimes a – number). For example, if Dustin Johnson is listed at +850, a $ 1 winning bet pays him $ 8.50. In traditional odds, this would be expressed as 8.5 to 1.
Here are the top 10 golfers in the FanDuel and Draftkings betting markets. Note that the betting markets are dynamic. So check the latest odds online.
- Dustin Johnson +850
- Bryson Dechambeau +900
- Justin Thomas +1000
- Jon Rahm +1 100
- Jordan Spieth +1200
- Rory McIlroy +1 400
- Brooks Koepka +2000
- Xander Schauffele +2000
- Collin Morikawa +2200
- Patrick Cantlay +2200
- Dustin Johnson +700
- Bryson Dechambeau +1000
- Justin Thomas +1000
- Jon Rahm +1 100
- Rory McIlroy +1,200
- Jordan Spieth +1 400
- Brooks Koepka +1600
- Xander Schauffele +2000
- Tony Finau +2200
- Patrick Cantlay +2500
As you can see, the odds of winning can change slightly, although favorites are relatively consistent across different websites. If you find yourself anywhere with legal sports betting, figuring out who has the best odds for your favorite golfer is a good strategy. Picking the winning golfer each week is always a difficult task, but it could be even more difficult for a tournament like the Masters. Golfers like Patrick Reed and Collin Morikawa seem to offer reasonable value with the current betting odds. Brooks Koepka is best avoided as his status after knee surgery is not yet known.
Fantasy sports are a great way to get further immersed in a major championship. Even if you're just playing free options, the thrill of winning the week is very real. You may not get a green jacket for it, but bragging rights are good too.
