US Masters Betting: Five reasons we loved Augusta 2015

Jordan Spieth facing his public as Masters Champion

This year's Masters was dominated from beginning to end by a humble young man by the name of Jordan Spieth, who's now being tipped up for a long and successful career having dominated all four days at Augusta. Join us as we take a look back at a great weekend of golf.

One of the best bets we saw on our Exchange over the weekend was a mammoth £30k bet backing Jordan Spieth at odds of 11/1. Since our Exchange matches players' bets with each other, there aren't the same bet limits or restrictions you see with other bookies, so come Sunday evening this player was celebrating a monster £360,000 win

This year's Masters was dominated from beginning to end by a humble young man by the name of Jordan Spieth, who's now being tipped up for a long and successful career having dominated all four days at Augusta. Join us as we take a look back at a great weekend of golf.


Sizzling Spieth


Becoming only the second youngest ever recipient of the Green Jacket drew favourable comparisons to a young Tiger Woods, unsurprisingly perhaps given Tiger still holds the title for the youngest winner at Augusta. But even with the weight of those comparisons on his shoulders, the 21 year old coped extraordinarily under what must have been incredible pressure throughout the weekend, to only just miss out on a new tournament record by one shot.


We go 11/4 on Spieth to Win another Major this season and 16/1 to win a career Grand Slam before Rory McIlroy.


Show-Stopping Shots


As always at Augusta there were some sensational shots along the way. Three-time champion and crowd favourite, Phil Mickelson, was turning back the years with some unbelievable strokes. How about this bad boy from the bunker at the 15th?



And if that wasn't enough arguably the greatest golf of all time, Jack Nicklaus, hit this belter of a hole-in-one. Not bad for a 75 year-old.



A stupendous £39.8 MILLION traded on our Exchange

Slip-ups!


There's nothing big nor clever about laughing at others' misfortunes. Unless that person is in the biggest pop band in the world and has more than enough money to cheer himself up.



STOP THE PRESS!


This was the second Masters for Price Rush, which is our way of giving punters the benefit of our Exchange's massive prices, without the hassle of learning how to trade. Over the course of the four days we saw a total of £39.8 MILLION traded on the Exchange as punters bet against each, mainly on whether Jordan Spieth could maintain his incredible start.

One of the best bets we saw on our Exchange over the weekend was a mammoth £30k bet backing Jordan Spieth at odds of 11/1. Since our Exchange matches players' bets with each other, there aren't the same bet limits or restrictions you see with other bookies, so come Sunday evening this player was celebrating a monster £360,000 win (minus a commission that Betfair takes from winning Exchange bets).
