Jason Day Odds to Win the 2014 Masters with Picks and Predictions
by George Monroy - 3/13/2014
Australian golfer Jason Day is still less than a month removed from his Match Play victory in Arizona in mid February, and he is entering the Masters tournament as the No.4 golfer in the world. The 26-year-old, however, is still dealing with a thumb injury that could affect his play next month during the first, and perhaps most prestigious, major of the year.
Day was forced to pull out of the Cadillac Championship in early March and plans to rest his thumb for the next few weeks leading up to the Masters. In 2012 Day withdrew from Augusta National due to a wrist injury and will not be taking any chances this time around with his currently injury. Let's take a closer look at Day's 2014 Masters odds with picks, analysis and predictions. All odds come from Sportsbook.ag

Jason Day 2014 Masters Story Lines
In 2011, Day broke into the Top 10 rankings and has been a consistent presence near the top of the game since. The Australian golfer has still not won a major, but he finished second in three of them since 2011 and even had consecutive runner-up finishes in Masters and U.S Open three years ago. Day earned another second during 2013's U.S Open and may be ready to finally get the "monkey" off his back with a win next month.
Day is not a household name like some of his other golf counterparts, but the Australian is set to become one of the sport's bright young stars-all he needs is that first major win to help set him apart. The golfer will head into the 2014 Masters with nearly seven weeks of rest since his last tournament, and the extended time off will give Day the extra peace of mind in knowing that his body is full healthily.
Jason Day Masters Odds and Key Stats
Day is currently receiving +1500 odds to win the 2014 Masters at Sportsbook.ag. The golfer earned $1.5 million for his Match Play win in February and already has two Top-10 finishes in only three events played in 2014. Day is also ninth on the yearly PGA money list with $1.9 million earned through the first three months of the year and is averaging a 70.9-stroke round in his first three events of the year.
Day shot a 216 overall score at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, but he missed the cut with scores of 68-77-71. The golfer also shot a 280 overall score back in January during the Farmers Insurance Open and was 8-under par with scores of 66-73-73-68 for a second-place finish.
Jason Day 2014 Masters Picks and Predictions
Day is an excellent player to bet on at +1500 odds. The young golfer just won a tournament in February, moved up to the No. 4 ranking in the world, and may be entering the first major of the season with his confidence at an all-time high. The only issue surround Day is his injured thumb. The Match Play champion received an MRI early in March, which came back negative, but the injury may still be a lingering issue once April rolls around.
However, a speculative wager on Day feels like an excellent value bet to make as a Masters win would not be shocking to those that follow the young Australian player.
