The Masters is here, and it’s time to make some money.

Betting on a winner, straight up, is a good way to burn through money quick. Taking Top 20 finishers is a good way to build up a decent bank roll with much less risk.

Bet365.com: Top-20 Masters Finishers at Augusta National

Rickie Fowler (-175)

Fowler is a little chalky at this price level, but he was a runner-up last season to Patrick Reed, and he has been tearing it up this season. Sure, Augusta National is a different animal, but Fowler has made the cut in each of his nine events this season, including a win at the Waste Management Open, three top-10 finishes and five top-20 showings. It would be shocking if Fowler isn’t challenging for a green jacket Sunday.

Matt Kuchar (+137)

Kuchar put the distractions of ‘Caddygate’ from his win at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in the rear-view mirror, and he was involved in a putt flap with Sergio Garcia at the WGC-Dell Championships Match Play event. Despite a lot of noise, Kuchar has been playing well. He has made the cut in all nine of his starts at Augusta National, while hitting par or under in seven of those showings. Three of those starts resulted in a top-10 finish, so a top-20 is not only likely, but expected.

Phil Mickelson (+137)

Lefty has been measured for three green jackets, and he nearly had a fourth one as recently as 2015. Who else knows this course better than Mickelson? Sure, he’s getting a little long in the tooth, but he proved he still has the goods with a victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and he managed a runner-up finish at a competitive Desert Classic. He’ll somehow find his way to be in one of the final pairings Sunday, and the TV execs will love that, too.

Patrick Cantlay (+200)

Cantlay has a little longer odds, but he could be a difference maker come Sunday. He has nine events under his belt this season, registering four top-10 finishes and seven cuts made in nine events, including a runner-up at the Shriners Hospital for Children Open. He also more than held his own in the Bahamas in a star-studded field at the Hero World Challenge in the winter. While a little bit of luster was lost with a missed cut at THE PLAYERS Championship in his most recent showing, he is a sneaky good play at a nice price level.

Thorbjorn Olesen (+450)

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

If you’re looking for someone with a little longer odds, take Denmark’s Olesen. He placed sixth in the event in 2013, his best-ever at a major. This will be his third go-around at Augusta, and he has played well in his previous two outings.
