Our Best 2018 Masters Sleeper Picks

He came close in 2012 to winning the Masters only to lose to Bubba Watson in a playoff. Oosthuizen is a streaky player so watch how he’s playing the few tournaments leading up to the 2018 Masters. If he’s making cuts and near the top of the leaderboard in those tournaments, he’ll be a solid sleeper pick at Augusta.
Hatton was actually closer to 60-1 odds and then played really well at the WGC Mexico Championship to drop him to 55-1. He’s ranked in the top 15 in the world but…he missed his only cut ever at the Masters (2017). On the bright side he’s not a newbie at Augusta but since he did miss the cut last year he goes against our Top 5 Masters Betting Tips.
Kooch hasn’t missed at cut at Augusta in 8 years and finished in a solid 4th last year. He is just a hair under 40 years old so he still could win the Masters and he is a safe golfer that makes cuts and sneaks up leaderboards when others are falling. He won’t outscore anyone on the course but he will score well enough to be close unless someone starts putting up low scores and running away with the green jacket.
Hoffman has been around the PGA Tour forever but has only been invited to the Masters 4 times. In his 4 tries at Augusta he’s finished top 30 all four times with his best week in 2015 when he played in the final pairing with Jordan Spieth. Last year he was at the top of the leaderboard in round 3 until finding the water at 16. He shot a poor round on Sunday to finish in 22nd. I don’t love Hoffman as a bet in general but at 80-1 odds, he’s a guy that seems comfortable on the course and could sneak up and win.
Perez is having one of his best years on tour and is game is rounding into form right before the Masters. He has not missed a cut so far this year and has 1 win, 3 Top Tens and 5 Top 25's. Last year at the Masters he finished tied for 18th and is currently sitting at 100 to 1. That is some serious value to jump on right now for a guy playing some steady golf.
2018 Masters Longshot Pick To Win
In his rookie year Grillo was on fire and finished T17 in his first Masters. Last year his whole season was a bit of a sophomore slump and he didn’t play well at all although he did manage to still make the cut at Augusta and finish in 51st place. So far 2018 has been a good year for him by making cuts, contending in some tournaments and looking like the young phenom he was predicted to be in his rookie year. There are a lot worse players at better odds you could pick to win but as a longshot pick to win the Masters, Grillo could actually pull off a win. He would be a great head to head player depending on his matchups as well.
