2021 Masters expert picks, odds: Insider with 12 winners unveils predictions, prop bets, matchup plays

4 min read

The staff at Augusta National Golf Club has become accustomed to making one of the sport’s marvels peak every spring, but now they’ll be tested with a shorter turnaround than usual at the 2021 Masters. That’s because the last Masters was moved to November due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the 85th edition will take place less than five months after the 84th. Dustin Johnson shot a record 268 thanks to advantageous conditions and won by five strokes, the largest margin since Tiger Woods blitzed the field by 12 shots in 1997. Can you trust Johnson in your 2021 Masters bets and matchup plays?

Johnson skipped the Valero Texas Open this week to prepare and is the 8-1 favorite in latest 2021 Masters odds from William Hill Sportsbook. Picking Masters winners is all about finding value, and there are also plenty of  2021 Masters props that can give you skin in the game. Before you lock in any 2021 Masters picks, make sure you check out the golf predictions from SportsLine data scientist Rick Gehman.

With his data-driven approach to betting golf, Gehman routinely crushes sportsbooks. At the Players Championship three weeks ago, the golf expert’s best bets cashed more than $1,000 for $100 players. Those who have followed his picks have cashed in big, and his golf bets brought in more than $1,900 over the final 17 tournaments of 2020.

Gehman barely missed hitting on huge bets in two of the three weeks before the Players, but Justin Thomas came through for him at TPC Sawgrass. The former Player of the Year and PGA Champion had been in a funk, but he completed his rebound to win outright at 22-1 and also cashed Gehman’s top-10 ticket.

What’s more, at Pebble Beach, Gehman made a profit of $400 thanks to backing Daniel Berger to win at 20-1. At The American Express, his bets brought in nearly $600 when he hit a top-five bet on Patrick Cantlay and top-10s on Abraham Ancer and Francesco Molinari. Anyone who has consistently followed Gehman’s advice is up big-time.

Now Gehman, whose models have produced 12 outright winners in the past year, has analyzed the latest 2021 Masters odds from William Hill Sportsbook and revealed his picks to win. You can only see them here.

Top 2021 Masters expert picks

We’ll share one of Gehman’s top selections to win the 2021 Masters: He likes the value on the surging Collin Morikawa at 22-1.

The 24-year-old who played collegiately at Cal has been a professional for less than two years, but he’s already won four times on the PGA Tour and rocketed up to No. 4 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Morikawa won the 2020 PGA Championship in TPC Harding Park, where he rose to the top of a leaderboard packed with some of the biggest names in golf. Morikawa is an elite ball-striker who ranked second on the PGA Tour in strokes gained on approach in 2020 (0.884) and is first in that category so far this season (1.238).

Look for Morikawa to manage speed better on the greens in his second Masters appearance, which should help his superior ball-striking shine on a course that has always valued players who can create opportunities for themselves.

How to make 2021 Masters bets

Gehman also has isolated two other players to win, including a mammoth longshot listed at longer than 30-1. Anyone who backs these underdogs could hit it big. You can only see those 2021 Masters picks at SportsLine.
