Are you ready for the 85th staging of the Masters Tournament? As usual, names like Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, and Rory McIlroy are the top ones to watch out for, but what about the sleepers? Here are three players with longer odds whom you should be keeping a close eye on, as the possible Cinderellas in this prestigious event down at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.
Top 3 High-Value Sleepers and Sleeper Picks and Predictions for the 2021 Masters Golf Tournament
Where: Augusta National Golf Club – Augusta, Georgia
When: April 8–11, 2021
TV Broadcast: ESPN/CBS
Matthew Fitzpatrick (+5500)
Although Fitzpatrick has not won an event so far this season, he’s currently on a nice stretch. The Englishman has made the cut in each of his last five starts, finishing inside the top 10 in three of them, with the other two being a T11 at the World Golf Championships-Workday Championship at The Concession and a T18 in last week’s World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play. Fitzpatrick is 5 of 6 at Augusta, with his best finish there being a solo seventh during the 2017 edition of the Masters Tournament.
Max Homa (+10000)
Homa is also riding a wave of momentum to Augusta. He’s gone 9 of 10 in his last 10 starts, a stretch that saw him score a win at the Genesis Invitational last February. Last week, he bounced back from a missed cut at THE PLAYERS Championship by getting a T18 at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play. Homa only has one Masters Tournament appearance under his belt, missing the cut at Augusta last year. He seems to be a better player now, though, so perhaps a higher finish is in store for the 30-year-old pro.
Abraham Ancer (+8500)
Ancer has made the cut in all his last four starts. Last week, the Mexican had a T23 at the Valero Texas Open. So far this season, Ancer has two top 10s in 14 starts, and in last year’s Masters, he showed out well, finishing T13 with a 14 under 280 score. He led that tournament after 36 holes but stumbled with a 76 in the fourth round. Nevertheless, Ancer seems to be a worthy sleeper pick at his current odds of +8500.
Will one of the above sleepers actually pull of a surprise win, or will it go to one of the favorites? View our predictions for the 2021 PGA Masters to find out.
