I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy Augusta National showing its teeth and making the best players in the world look human. Saturday was a struggle for the majority of the field but NOT FOR SIDE HUSTLE BETS. After Round 3 Side Hustle Bets is now up 6.1562 units (+$615.62 for $100 units and +$6156.20 for $1000 units) thanks to some solid showings from Collin Morikawa and Cameron Smith (Jon Rahm beat Tyrell Hatton as well but they both looked terrible).
Given how well we’re positioned moving into Sunday (Outright Winner bets in the top 2 players in the tournament right now), the main focus is protecting the early bets we placed that look promising and zeroing in on the matchups that jump off the page rolling into the final round.
Enjoy our final round bets, thanks for riding the lightning with us and always remember to bet smarter, not harder.
Outright Winner: Sungjae Im (+1700) (0.2 units)
It’s officially time to drop some money on Sungjae Im to win it all. The guy has a game that’s catered to Augusta, he’s playing half decent thus far and realistically there’s only so many people even remotely close enough to threaten Scheffler or Smith for the 2022 title. At +1700 odds 0.2 units is a no brainer.
4th Round Bets
4th Round Matchups (1 unit each)
Collin Morikawa (+105) vs Rory McIlroy (-125)
If Rory McIlroy is Achilles then Augusta National is his heel. The two simply don’t click and Morikawa is going to wear a green jacket at some point. I’m taking Morikawa here to sneak his way into a top 10 finish and set the stage for his 2023 Masters victory.
Shane Lowry (-120) vs Sungjae Im (+100)
While I predicted both of these players to show out at Augusta this year, Sungjae Im is simply better than Shane Lowry and I expect that disparity in talent to show on Sunday. Sungjae Im would be tied for 2nd or better right now if it wasn’t for such a god awful front nine on Saturday. Only one player has the chance to make a run on Sunday, I think we all know who it is…
Scottie Scheffler (+115) vs Cameron Smith (-125)
I’m taking Cam Smith here considering he’s down 3 shots to Scheffler and I fully expect Scottie to play conservative on Sunday until he can’t anymore. There’s always the chance that Scheffler just runs away with the championship but history tends to repeat itself and if that’s the case then Smith is going to have a day and it’s Scheffler’s tournament to lose. What a great 4th round matchup considering our initial outright winner bets…
