Bets to win
Justin Thomas 10-1; Top-10 finish (+100)
Bearman: JT’s weekend performance at The Players Championship was a reminder not to exclude him from the “top golfer in the game” conversation. In 10 non-match play events in 2021, he has finished in the top 15 in nine of them, missing the cut at the Genesis the week his grandfather died. This includes his win at Sawgrass, a third-place finish in Hawaii and top-10 finishes at the last two majors, which are technically part of the 2021 season. He was fourth at Augusta back in November, holding a share of the 36-hole lead before a weekend 71-70. His last seven rounds at Augusta National are all under par, as he has progressively performed better each year. Thomas is fifth in total shots gained and third on approach, which is always key at the Masters. With a win vs. the best field of the year a few weeks back, Thomas is primed to add his second major title to his impressive resume.
