Justin Thomas vs Xander Schauffele Masters Matchup Best Bet
Thomas and Schauffele enter with fairly similar Masters resumes over the last five years. Both have multiple top-10 finishes. Coming into this year's event though, Schuaffle is playing slightly better. He is coming off a T5 in his last start, and had a T19 previous to that. Thomas, on the other hand, had a T10 in his last start and a T60 before that.
Despite Schauffele being in slightly better form, I'm going with Thomas, who's played better at Augusta overall and as of late. He also has more experience on the course. Furthering that, Thomas (+2100) is favored more to win the whole thing than Schauffele (+2500) is. Clearly the oddsmakers like Thomas better overall this week, despite making him the underdog in this head-to-head matchup. I'm following my gut and the odds.
