Here's everything you need to know about Sam Burns' Masters odds and history heading into the 2023 event.

Sam Burns Masters Prediction 2023
Sam Burns has put his name on the map during the 2022-23 PGA Tour, posting six top-30 finishes and three top-20 finishes in 11 tournaments. One of those top-10 finishes came at the recent Valspar Championship (March 16-19) where Burns placed sixth after finishing -5 across the four rounds.

Burns has to be hoping his recent success can carry over to Augusta considering he missed the cut at the 2022 Masters. That was the 26-year-old's debut at the storied tournament, which makes the result much more understandable. Challenges such as nerves and unfamiliarity are no longer in play.
A lot of the top betting options for the 2023 Masters are golfers that know how to drive the ball, but Burns ranks ninth in the PGA Tour when it comes to Strokes Gained (SG): Putting. Burns has a clear chance to make up ground via clutch putts, so I'll back a top-30 finish (-155) with confidence here.
