2021 Masters Sleeper Picks for Fantasy Golf And Betting

Here are our top Masters sleepers for 2021. We use the current odds for the Masters from Intertops at the time this was written.

Corey ConnersCorey Conners (80-1 odds to win the 2021 Masters)
Conners has been one of the better golfers on Tour this year and his putting is some of the best in the PGA at times. He finished in 10th in the fall edition of the Masters and sets up nicely as a sleeper pick this week. He has played really well in 2021 and at 80-1 odds he’s a great sleeper pick for DFS and if you want to take advantage of our FREE BET offer and see if his long odds pay off.

Justin RoseJustin Rose (66-1 odds to win the 2021 Masters)
Until Rose missed the cut at the Masters in 2019 he was easy money to bet on and to use in fantasy golf lineups. Although he’s never won a green jacket, I made some great money anchoring DFS golf lineups with him for years. Recently Rose has not been the best of golfers and odd makers have him as a 66-1 bet to win. I don’t know which Rose will show up this week but if you are looking for a guy at longer odds that has a legit shot at winning then Rose makes a lot of sense this week.

Matthew FitzpatrickMatthew Fitzpatrick (50-1 odds to win the 2021 Masters)
Fitzpatrick may be clicking at just the right time heading into the Masters. Aside for a T7 in 2016 he’s been pretty mediocre at Augusta but I have watched enough of his game to know that he can rise up to be a star on the Tour, it’s just a matter of whether he finally reaches his potential. As mentioned he is hot right now with four Top 11 finishes since February and I like him as a cheaper salary cap pick this week.

Joaquin NiemannLouis Oosthuizen (66-1 odds to win the 2021 Masters)
If it wasn’t for him shooting a 75 in the 3rd round of last year’s Masters who knows where Louis could have finished. Oosthuizen has always competed well in big tournaments like the majors and has a solid history at Augusta. He should be a low to mid-range salary cap price at all DFS fantasy golf sites and you should take advantage of him at the lower price.

Ian PoulterIan Poulter (150-1 odds to win the 2021 Masters)
One of the senior citizens on the PGA Tour, Poulter has always been competitive in major tournaments. He is an astounding 150-1 odds to win the Masters and although he is a longshot to win…it wouldn’t surprise too many golf fans if he did. Definitely look at him in your DraftKings Fantasy Golf Millionaire tournament contests but I will probably put down a couple of bucks on him at the 150-1 odds.

Things to Consider When Making 2021 Masters Sleeper Picks

Course History – It's Augusta! – The most famous course in the US and one of the most well known golf courses in the world. Most players have played there numerous times unless they are new invites to the Masters. That being said, there are some golfers that just have no luck at Augusta and some that always make the cut and play well. Look at the course history and see who loves playing there and who will have their plane ticket booked for Saturday.

Play the Hot Hand – Because so many players will already be familiar with playing Augusta, we love using golfers that are hot leading up to the Masters. Guys that are making cuts, finishing in Top 25’s and in the two weeks before the Masters are flirting with wins are great sleeper picks that aren’t necessarily going to be priced high when the rankings come out on Monday.

What are the Odds? – Here is a link to the Current Betting Odds for the 2021 Masters. The guys that set up fantasy golf salary cap numbers aren’t as smart as the professional odds makers so you will find some top golfers are given 40-1 to 80-1 odds but are a low salary cap number. It’s a good reference point when you like a certain player to see where the pros think he stacks up.

How's the Weather? – Normally the Masters has picture perfect weather but occasionally a hot spell dries up the course or the rains come through and change how the balls bounce. Knowing which PGA Tour Golfers have a good short game to take advantage of wet conditions, and which golfers are the long hitters that will take advantage of the dry conditions can help you build a lineup that suits how the weather will affect the 2021 Masters Tournament.
