Betting on Players to Make the Cut at the Masters

  • Charl Schwartzel (Make -125/Miss -105): With fair -125 odds, betting on Charl Schwartzel to make the cut is largely a bet on his incredibly strong history at the Masters stats. Having made the cut in three straight Masters and nine out of 13 times overall, Schwartzel clearly has the requisite knowledge to at least make the cut. Included in Charl Schwartzel's Masters history is a win back in 2011.
  • Adam Svensson (Make -165/Miss +135): With five straight made cuts and the 49th-best scoring average on par-5s, Adam Svensson appears to be a strong bet to make the cut at the Masters.
  • J.T. Poston (Make -210/Miss +170): Ranking 12th in both GIR and Par-5 Scoring stats from this season, J.T. Poston has the making of a golfer that should have no problem sneaking past the cutline on Friday. Poston's elite scoring statistics have shown up in his recent form, with back-to-back top tens at the Dell Match Play tournament and Valspar Championship.
  • Tiger Woods (Make -165/Miss +135): The main event at the Masters has Tiger Woods odds as low as -165 to make the cut at the Masters may have been the best bet in all of sports given his course history at Augusta National if it were not for injuries. Woods has made the cut 22 straight times at the Masters, overcoming his bank and leg injuries in the past to payout belief in the legend. Woods struggled after making the cut last year but has proven to be a safe bet to at least make it to the weekend.
