Josh Sens Louis Oosthuizen

The guys over at Golf.com obviously share the same passion for the sport of golf and excitement for the upcoming 2019 Masters, but their picks differ. That said, Rory McIlroy and Francesco Molinari are two standouts, as both have gotten the most selections. McIlroy isn’t much of a surprise here, as he’s the current favorite to win the tournament with odds of +750 to slip on the green jacket this coming weekend. Molinari, on the other hand, is priced +1,500. He’s getting plenty of attention lately, especially following a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and a third-place finish at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Expert Picks
Dan Kilbridge Dustin Johnson
Christine Brennan Rory McIlroy
David Dusek Rory McIlroy
Eamon Lynch Rory McIlroy
Beth Ann Nichols Justin Rose
Steve DeMeglio Jordan Spieth
Geoff Shackelford Tiger Woods

USA Today’s experts are also loving McIlroy’s chances in Augusta. Christine Brennan is expecting the Northern Irishman to come into the tournament fully motivated. Not that he hasn’t been in that mindset before, but this is McIlroy’s last chance to pull off a rare feat in the sport. If he wins the Masters this weekend, he’ll just be the fifth man to complete a career grand slam before turning 30. There is also some support for Tiger Woods, who is +1,200 to win his fifth Masters and first since 2005 this year. Geoff Shackelford cited Woods’ performance against McIlroy at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play as a sign of the 14-time majors winner preparedness for the 2019 Masters.


Golf Digest

Expert Pick
Alex Myers Dustin Johnson

Alex Myers of Golf Digest has no outright pick to win the Masters, but he has Dustin Johnson atop his list of best players to bet on at the 2019 Masters. And it’s not a bad advice at all. Johnson has back-to-back top-10 finishes in his last two appearances at the Masters. He was a T10 last year and a T4 in 2016. He missed the event in 2017 due to a back injury, but he’s been  in top form since recovering from that. He has three T6 or better finishes over his last four starts, including a win at the World Golf Championships in Mexico.


TopBet Writer – Ryan Simpson

Expert Pick
Ryan Simpson Rory McIlroy

TopBet’s resident author is aware that McIlroy just lost to Tiger Woods at the Match Play, but that’s too small of a sample for him to look the other way. It’s still McIlroy for Simpson. He’s been flirting with the green jacket over the past few years. He was a T5 last year and a T7, T10, and placed fourth in three appearances at the Masters prior to 2018. You can read Ryan’s full preview of the 2019 Masters here.
