If you're looking for a reason to eliminate people from your betting pool and need a reason to be able to do so, some of these stats may help.
Note: They're all true, but not all genuine reasons to not pick someone!
- No fair-haired player has won a green jacket in the last two decades.
- No pre-tournament favorite has won the Masters since Tiger Woods in 2005.
- No player outside of the top 30 in the Official World Golf Rankings has won since Angel Cabrera in 2009.
- No first-timer has won the tournament since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979.
- Every winner since Adam Scott in 2013 posted at least three top-25s on major tours in the year beforehand.
- Only Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have won the even-aged 43 or older.
Ones to watch
Justin Thomas (+1200)
One of the favorites to come out victorious and earn a green jacket is Thomas, with the hope that he can overcome his previous woes when it comes to putting on this course.
In recent weeks, however, he has looked as though he is peaking at the perfect time to claim a huge win.
He was on course for a great win last year before he got an 8 on the par-5 13th, which really cost him a chance of victory.
Sometimes his driving can be a bit wayward but the weather could play in his favor this time around with the forecast, not the greatest, he has proven in the past that he has got a great game to cope and that could be the difference here.
Collin Morikawa (+2000)
A two-time major champion despite being just 25-years-old, Morikawa is one of the best and most consistent strikers of a ball in the sport right now.
His putting has improved substantially since last year, and his driving is among the best on the PGA Tour.
He has the opportunity to add the third leg to his potential career grand slam nice and early on and would put him in esteemed company, so at 20/1, he's hard to ignore as a potential winner.
Xander Schauffele (+2500)
Certainly a bit of an outsider here, but if Schauffele can stay true to his form prior to the tournament then he will at the very least be in the mix to win.
The American's previous two starts at Augusta have been T2 and T3, coming up short against Hideki Matsuyama last year after putting his tee shot into the water on the 16th.
He can play this course well though and is a great value bet considering his form and ability shown in the past.

Si-Woo Kim (+10000)
A huge 100/1 shot of winning the Masters? Usually, you'd say no chance, but there are some interesting things to look at here.
He has shown the ability and quality to win these events before, dominating the 2017 Players Championship, and he has a pretty good record at Augusta too. He has made the cut four times in a row, including three top 25s and a top 12 in 2021 too.
He's certainly a standout sleeper bet if you fancy a long shot, so get on while the price is high if you fancy it.
Kevin Kisner (+20000)
You thought 100/1 was crazy, well how about this 200/1 pick?
Kisner opened the year with back-to-back top-ten finishes in Hawaii and then after a couple of hot and cold weeks, he returned as a big contender at The Players where he managed to rack up a fourth-placed finish.
While admittedly being a contender in this tournament would be a big jump for him, if he can string together a few good rounds and make the cut then there's no reason he can't maintain that and wear the green jacket on Sunday.
Tiger Woods (+4300)
It's 14 months since a car accident saw Woods lucky to be alive, and lucky to keep his leg. But yet he's back on the course for the most prestigious tournament there is and having won it five times in the past, how can we rule him out?
Woods has looked sharp in the practice rounds and it would be typical of his fairytale career if he would return after so long out to win it again and match Nicklaus' six-win record.
He could just as easily be at home by the time the weekend even hits, but getting Tiger Woods at 43/1 to win a major is just something that shouldn't be passed up.
