Does momentum matter at the Masters? What it means for Tiger Woods at Augusta National

  Does momentum matter at the Masters? What it means for Tiger Woods at Augusta National Tiger Woods is the betting favorite for the 2018 Masters. But does momentum matter at Augusta National?The Masters begins in two weeks, and Tiger Woods is the Vegas favorite to grab the green jacket. A position that's a byproduct of Woods' recent performance, with the 42-year-old turning in consecutive top-five finishes at the Valspar Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational. It's worth remembering these numbers are reflective of the betting habits of the public rather than the forecast of odds makers; conversely, fans aren't dropping real money on a player routinely missing cuts.

Tiger Woods' sudden resurgence has generated perhaps more pre-Masters gambling talk than ever before, keeping oddsmakers on their toes with every hole he plays. Woods will tee off this Thursday at Augusta National as one of the favorites (about 10-to-1 odds at most sportsbooks), and there are plenty of other ways to bet him as well, from finishing in the top 10 (+515 -- a $100 wager would win you $515) to withdrawing (+265). But there are plenty of other Masters prop bets that don't involve Tiger, and we've highlighted seven of the most fun wagers out there, courtesy of BetDSI. So take a gander and enjoy -- in moderation, of course.

Opinion: Masters shaping up to be one for the books

  Opinion: Masters shaping up to be one for the books The 2018 Masters is going to be incredible. If you’ve followed golf on a relatively routine basis in 2018, you’ve probably heard that a lot. If you’re tired of hearing it, we’d suggest you find a way to get used to it. Because between now and the time the Green Jacket is decided, you’ll hear it a lot more.Now, to be fair, the Masters is always exciting. Generally speaking, it’s the highlight of the golf season. But this year, there’s a little extra excitement to it. The number of players who will enter Augusta on a strong note is rather large. More notably, it’s overwhelmingly impressive.

Headwear of winner in 2018 Masters

Hat -1500

Visor +900

No headwear +5500

That visor bet has some decent value considering the pair of lefties, Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson, who often go with this look. Also, Ian Poulter's late addition to the field gives you another potential player to pull this off. Pull off the bet, that is. Does anyone really pull off the visor look these days?

Will the winner cry on the 18th green of 2018 Masters?

Yes +550

No -1000

Again, with Bubba alone, you're in decent shape if you bet "Yes." Although, no Steve Stricker in the field this year hurts your chances of seeing some waterworks on Sunday evening.

Child +225

Parent +605

Wife/Girlfriend +165

Wife holding child +305

No hug +825

Unless Sergio Garcia, who arrived in Augusta with his baby daughter Azalea, successfully defends his title, "wife/girlfriend" seems like a pretty safe bet here over "Wife holding child." Then again, if Dash Day's dad wins, "Child" is a lock.

Will winner of the Par 3 Contest win the 2018 Masters?

Yes +2200

No -5000

"No" seems like a safe bet as well considering no one has ever overcome this Par 3 curse. However, you'd be crazy to risk that much to win so little (a $5,000 wager would earn you a cool hundo). And if a 16 seed could finally beat a No. 1 in the NCAA Tournament, then this might be the year someone finally pulls this off.

Will Jordan Spieth hit ball into water on No. 12 during 2018 Masters?

Yes +140

No -190

Hey, he's done it two years in a row. . . OK, so that's actually not a very fun Masters prop bet. Strike that. Back to the fun stuff. . .

Masters 2018: Tiger-mania returns to Augusta National

  Masters 2018: Tiger-mania returns to Augusta National Masters 2018: Let there be no doubt: Four-time Masters winner Tiger Woods has returned to Augusta NationalAUGUSTA, Ga.—The practice facility at Augusta National is a quiet nook. Traffic surrounds it, especially with the commotion generated by the new Masters Golf Shop, which sits adjacent. But on a property that screams serenity, the range is a special place of repose, where patrons sit under a canopy of clouds to soak up the sun like they are at the park. It's usually where one can gather their thoughts and enjoy the scene in peace, which is why I headed there for an afternoon breather.

Number of hole-in-one shots during 2018 Par 3 contest

0 +1215

1 +600

2 +225

3 +225

4 or more +205

And what's more fun than betting on holes-in-one? Nothing. Last year's Par 3 was rained out, but there were NINE aces in 2016, including back-to-back ones by Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler.

Will a player make a hole-in-one skipping ball across No. 16 water? (Tuesday practice round)

Yes +865

No -2200

We take that back. There is something more fun than betting on a hole-in-one. Betting on a SKIPPING hole-in-one. And it's actually been done at least twice before, by Vijay Singh in 2009 and Martin Kaymer in 2012.

Will there be a playoff in 2018 Masters?

Yes +235

No -285

Finally, it seems like you should get much better odds for "Yes," but last year's Masters needed extra holes and there have already been nine playoffs on the PGA Tour this season. So brace yourself for an epic Tiger-Phil-Dustin-Justin-Jordan playoff, people! Come to think of it, is any sportsbook offering odds on that?
