The 2022 Masters is just what the doctor ordered. The GOAT made the cut, massive crowds are back at Augusta and… Side Hustle Bets is up 5.0123 units going into the weekend. You read that correctly… +5.0123 units going into moving day with over 40 additional potential units to add to the bank on the horizon.
For those of you new to the sports betting game, a unit is your baseline wager amount on a single bet. The most common unit for sports betting is $100 or $1000. Using those common units, if you took every bet that we’ve listed out for the Masters thus far… you’d either be up $501.23 ($100 unit) or $5,012.30 ($1,000 unit) after just the first two rounds.
I’ve broken down our successes below as well as where we missed the mark.

Round 3 Bets
3rd Round Matchups (1 unit each)
Jon Rahm (-155) vs Tyrell Hatton (+135)
Jon Rahm has struggled early but he’s still a top 3 player in the world. Expect to see him make moves on Saturday and I’m jumping at the opportunity to bet on him against Hatton at -155 odds. Hatton is lucky to be +2 up to this point and Rahm feels like he just hasn’t really gotten it going yet. This matchup feels like easy money.
Robert MacIntyre (-135) vs Lee Westwood (+115)
Continuing my trend of doubling down on my early favorites here. MacIntyre is young, plays his best in majors and Westwood ranks towards the bottom of our projections for virtually every category that matters with the exception of Strokes Gained: Approach. Don’t be surprised if MacIntyre sneaks his way into another impressive finish this weekend.
Collin Morikawa (-125) vs Will Zalatoris (+105)
Morikawa is going to be in contention on Sunday. I feel it in my bones and the numbers validate that feeling. I think Zalatoris is going to be a great player (he already is) but this is a major and I’m going to take a two time major champ on moving day over a player yet to break through in general (Zalatoris hasn’t won a PGA tournament yet).
Cameron Smith (-145) vs Corey Conners (+125)
Cameron Smith is going to come out firing on Saturday after a disappointing 2nd round and Corey Conners is overrated coming into this tournament. Cameron Smith is arguably the best player in the world right now so I’m jumping at the opportunity to snag -145 odds on him on moving day (redemption day after Friday). Conners has made me regret fading him so far but I think those regrets “fade away” on Saturday against a truly elite player in Smith.
