Following a third round score of 70, Jordan Spieth enters the final round of the 2015 Masters as favourite.
Priced at 1/2 with SkyBet, Spieth currently sits top of the leaderboard on 16 under par, having started the day 14 under. However, some poor shots on the final holes on Saturday, could play on Spieth’s mind come Sunday afternoon, when the pressure of playing at Augusta really starts to build.
Two players who took advantage of Spieth’s rare mishap, were Justin Rose and Phil Mickelson and we hope some of you got on the advice we gave yesterday that they were the ones who could make a move. The 2013 US Open Winner, Rose will be coming in to Sunday full of confidence after a sensational finish on Saturday, which saw the Englishman birdie 7 of the final 12 holes. Rose is 24/5 with Coral to claim his second major on US soil, the key will be getting off to a good start, which he failed to do on Saturday.
The real value on the final day could come in the way of three time Masters champion, Phil Mickelson. The American clearly has the experience and know-how of how to get over the line at Augusta and after carding a 67 on Saturday, starts the final round 5 shots off the pace. At 13/2 with Betfred, Mickelson is capable of posting a score lower than his third round 67 and if he does, this will really add pressure to Spieth.
Looking at the other markets, if either Tiger Woods or Rory McIlroy can put a great round together, either or both have the chance to finish top without Spieth. The best option here would be McIlroy, who is 20/1 with Bet365, with Woods back at 25/1. Additionally, SkyBet have special of 12/1 for McIlroy or Woods to win without Spieth.
Interestingly, three of the last five winners of this tournament, have all birdied the final hole and with pin position as it always is for the fourth round, there is a strong possibility the same could happen this year. SkyBet have odds of 100/30 for the Winner to birdie the 18th on Sunday, which given the recent statistics, is worth a punt.
