US Masters First Round Leader Betting Tips – Three Each-way Selections

US Masters price boosts

US Masters first round leader betting tips for this week at Augusta. Bet on these three each-way selections for first-round leader.

Some added betting interest for the Masters this week and it’s the first-round leader market.  Always a great bet for punters who want an early win to set them up for the rest of the tournament and on the Masters, Paddy Power are paying EIGHT places for each-way bets on the first-round leader market.

 

US Masters First Round Leader Odds

A lot of the time you will find that a player who is leading the tournament after the first day doesn’t go on to win the title so that is why a first round leader bet is always a good one to get you started at a golf major such as the US Masters.

It also means you get bigger odds for most players compared to their outright winner odds. For example, US Masters favourite Bryson Dechambeau is 8/1 to win the tournament but as big as 16/1 to be first round leader. This is always a wide open betting market and there is plenty of each-way value to be found.

 

Best Bookmaker for first-round leader betting

This year, Paddy Power are the best bookies to use for betting on the US Masters first-round leader because they are paying EIGHT places for each-way bets.

No other bookies are even paying seven places for each-way bets on this market, with Sky Bet and bet365 both only paying six along with William Hill and Betfred. Bet Victor are only paying five places as are 10Bet.

Scottie Scheffer – 45/1 Paddy Power

My first selection is SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER 45/1 EW. Scheffler started fast last week and was in a tie for 1st after the first round before a disappointing three rounds followed. Scheffler has always been a streaky player and he certainly knows how to go low. Scheffler has been a star of 2020 and he’ll be relishing making his Masters debut here. He has played in Georgia three times on the PGA Tour and every time he has finished in the top 5. He certainly has an eye for this part of America and although experience might tell as the week goes on I expect a fast start.

 

Lee Westwood – 66/1 Paddy Power

My next selection is LEE WESTWOOD 66/1 EW. Westwood has bags of experience and despite the fact he’s coming to the end of his career he has shown us plenty of times this season he’s far from done yet. He won in Abu Dhabi and that seemed to give him the confidence that he can still compete at the highest level. He started fast in the US Open and I see no reason why he can’t start fast again here this week. Recently in the Scottish open he shot an opening round of -11 and his first-round often proves to be his best of the week a lot of the time.

 

Rickie Fowler – 45/1 Paddy Power

My final selection in this market is RICKIE FOWLER 50/1 EW. Fowler has been very up and down this year on the whole and he always tends to play three rounds well but has one stinker of a round that ruins his chance of challenging for the tournament victory. He tends to bring his best golf to the majors and he has led a few times before in majors after round 1. I can see him going low once this week and I’m hoping it comes in the first round for betting purposes.
