Best Round 4 Masters bets: Our top wagers

USATSI_18053047

Scottie Scheffler held a five-stroke lead overnight on Friday. He expanded to a seven-stroke lead making the turn into Saturday's back nine; by the conclusion of Saturday's round, Scheffler's lead has been cut to three. The World No. 1 carded bogeys on three of his last five holes while Cameron Smith, who was recommended at 14-1 in-play last night, shot two-under on the back side to finish at -6 and just three shots back of the leader. 

Here is the current leaderboard after 54 holes at The Masters:

Obviously, there are few options to fade the leader if you want to cash an in-play outright winner. We have some good equity with Smith at 14-1 from Friday as he is now around 1/5th of that price. Lowry (50-1), Thomas (14-1) and McIlroy (20-1) were on my pre-tournament outrights card, but they are distant long shots to win the green jacket at this point. 

The "Winner without Scheffler" market could be a place to attack from a wagering standpoint if you do not already have exposure in the futures markets (Smith leads that market at -220). If you want to swerve from the Australian favorite in this market, Justin Thomas at 14-1, Rory McIlroy at 50-1, or Tommy Fleetwood at 100-1 look to be the most potentially lucrative to have a low round tomorrow. 

The easiest way to have action for Sunday's final round is likely the head-to-head matchup markets. Here a couple that are of interest to me:
