Doc's Top 5 Best Each Way Bets
Viktor Hovland 20/1
Only his third appearance and no top-20 at Augusta yet so why am I picking him? Heart, graft, determination and a Major Champion in waiting. Close at the Genesis, closer still at Bay Hill, battled to a top 10 at Sawgrass and even though Augusta will stretch his short game Viktor is well worth an each way crack at 20/1 with all the noise elsewhere.
Cameron Smith 16/1
You cannot leave Cam off your betslip at Augusta. Winner at the Tournament of Champions and again at The Players with the best putting game in the world right now. That same stroke has already yielded three top-10's from four here including a T2 in 2020 and while there are no certainties ever at The Masters, you've got to think he'll be in the mix.
Dustin Johnson 18/1
Not the same dominant Dustin that won at Augusta in November 2020 but plenty to suggest he'll contend. His T9 at The Players was a microcosm of his season to date, 76 on Saturday, incredible 63 on Sunday. Looked very tidy with his wedges during a good run in tricky Austin at the matchplay and with four other top-10's at Augusta since 2015 apart from his win, is still good value.
Scottie Scheffler 16/1
Only playing his third Masters and the story of the first two were solid top-20 finishes despite up on 120 putts in each. What's different this year? Wins in Phoenix, Bay Hill and Austin, a smoking hot putter and sky high confidence. What's also great is that when he hasn't won he's still battled hard like at the Genesis. Rested and with nothing to lose on a week where everyone else will be peeing their pants, Scottie is the man in form.
Corey Conners 55/1
Overpriced at 50/1 in his fifth Masters. Gave the field a head start in last two Augusta Thursdays before battling back to score top-10's. Playing better than his strokeplay results suggest; his irons at Bay Hill were brilliant and was on a run 5 wins at the Matchplay before going out in the semi final. If you think the first four picks are low odds, here's the leveller at 50/1.
