PICK: Dustin Johnson +1100 at FanDuel

“I don’t care what people say. Dustin Johnson is the favorite this week. He hit it impeccably in Houston and just couldn’t get the putts to drop.”

Nick Piastowski, Golf.com

PICK: Hideki Matsuyama +3000 at DraftKings

“He looked REAL good last week. It’s finally his time to win a major.”

Rick Gehman, GolfDigest.com

PICK: Dustin Johnson +1100 at FanDuel

“It took Dustin Johnson exactly one round to shake off the rust after missing a few weeks from a positive COVID test. He kicked off the Houston Open with a 2-over 72 before rattling off rounds of 66-66-65 to finish in a tie for second. The way he performed last week was vintage DJ. He gained 10.17 strokes from tee-to-green last week, second in the field behind only Sam Burns. He passed the eye test, looking dialed-in with his putter, and he’s ready to add a second major to his résumé.”

Ryan Banengee, TheGolfNewsNet.com

PICK: Dustin Johnson +1100 at FanDuel

“DJ has been on a tear. He hasn’t finished worse than T-6 in his last six starts. He was T-2 here last year.”

Jason Sobel, Action Network

PICK: Justin Thomas +1300 at DraftKings

In his last 10 starts, JT owns a win (at a WGC event) and a handful of bitterly tough defeats. That should only strengthen the inner motivation and chip on his shoulder. I’ve maintained previously that a fiery Justin Thomas might be the best Justin Thomas, as he tends to play some of his best golf following brief bouts of playing something less than his best golf, when he’s obviously unhappy with his effort.

Pat Mayo Experience, for DraftKings.com

PICK: Bryson Dechambeau +800 at PointsBet

“If you think one of the top five players is going to win, you’re going to need that player in your lineup. I think Bryson is going to win, so I’m picking Bryson. Projecting ownership is critical to make sure you don’t have the same lineup as everyone else, but you need that winner, so don’t let anything talk you off your position if it’s firm. Bryson has simply been preparing for this Masters the entire year. The increased distance, improved short game and lack of focus on short irons all screams Augusta. His game has gotten so good that he picked up a major win along the way. You may have to get creative with the rest of your roster, but making Bryson your anchor is how you should start.”

Esten McLaren, USA Today

PICK: Patrick Cantlay +2800 at DraftKings

“Cantlay will enter his third career Masters as a professional off a win at the Zozo Championship against a start-studded, 78-man field. He tied for ninth last year following a missed cut in 2018. He was also the low amateur in 2012, finishing T-47.

His recent victory pushed him to ninth in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings. He’s now a three-time PGA Tour winner since 2017 with one other playoff loss. He excels around the greens and averaged 0.93 Strokes Gained: Putting per round at the Zozo, according to Data Golf.”
