On Friday, at the Masters, we had an absolutely wonderful golf day because the players happened to finish the first round after sunrise, and when there was no light tonight, the afternoon wave was stopped.
Just after halfway through the second round, we were among the best in a four-stroke draw, including Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, two of the top three in the world. Third place Jon Rahm (Jon Rahm) will have a five-foot putt to start the day on Saturday morning and compete under the age of 9.
Perhaps the biggest story of the day was the unfortunate situation of the third hole. Bryson DeChambeau and everyone in the area were looking for his motivation to drive into the left draft area. After three minutes, although it was obvious that his ball was dropped about fifteen yards from the left of the fairway, within a small radius of only thirty yards from the green, he was forced to re-took the ball. He will continue to make a triple bogey 7 and throw his Masters into chaos, which makes him questionable to enter the final two rounds.
This shows how crazy it is today. We have reached my fourth summary. I haven̵
We once again entered an all-night scene in which we are not sure how the last hole of the second round will work, and now there will be less between the two rounds. The most likely scenario is to advance to -1, but either way will have an advantage (especially in DFS) because the player enters or exits the third round before being locked.
I will again focus on my favorite winning bet because we have no battles or other markets between the two rounds. There are still plenty of good betting opportunities because this is a messy leaderboard with 21 players within four shots of the lead.
The biggest decision maker you might bet on at the top of the leaderboard is based on your perception of Lahm’s completion of the second round. As I mentioned, he birdied a 5-foot putt on the 13th and then had at least two very accessible holes on the 15th and 16th.
If you think he will end the round as the direct leader, you should wait for this to happen before pulling the trigger. This stance makes sense, especially in terms of odds, because Ram has the lowest odds to win.
I will play by myself and keep an eye on the odds of Patrick Cantlay, who sits under 8 and currently only has one shot. He is now ranked +1400 in BetMGM, and if Ram takes the lead, I hope this number will increase.
Cantlay defeated the best round of the day with a score of 66 under 6 in the second round, despite a bogey on his first hole. He is my choice to win this week and has a wealth of experience at Masters after competing with Tiger in 2019. I still hope that he can experience this week, and as the number drifts towards +2000, I am willing to collect more exposure.
The one who jumped out the most when I was shopping in the round market was Sungjae Im. His position in the clubhouse was lower than 8, but the price was lower than 4 and 5. What makes me surprised is that I am the 25th player in the world; he is not a stranger, he suddenly appeared near the top of the leaderboard.
Sungjae won the Honda Classic last season and then finished third at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Both events have top-level fields, and he has shown that he can compete at this stage.
For him, overcoming many of the world’s top players to win this week’s green jacket is undoubtedly a feat, but his position of +3300 on BetMGM does not match his current position.
I think Weber Simpson’s odds are too high, which illustrates the difference in the current betting market. When I saw Webb at +5000 on BetMGM, I started writing Webb as other intermediate games, but looking further, he climbed all the way to +8000 on DraftKings.
Scan the leaderboard, you have to scroll a little bit to find Weber’s 3rd place tied for 27th, but this does not tell the whole story. His first shot on Saturday morning was to push a three-foot eagle on a 15-par par. should Jumped him to 5 at par. Then, he will bring all these good feelings into an attackable par-3 of 16 and have a chance to enter the top 15.
Simpson finished fifth at the 2019 Masters, and how he became a different player since winning The Players in 2018 has been well documented. He has won two victories in the 2020 season, and if he is seventh, he will not be shocked. Since the 2012 US Open, the world’s number one player won his first major.
In any case, +8000 is a crazy number, and it reflects his current position on the leaderboard more than considering that he has the opportunity to move two shots with a short putt to start his morning.
