Gamblers are a superstitious bunch by nature and sports bettors are no different.

They’re looking at trends and stats and data and streaks and the like, but they often go with their gut, hunches.

Sometimes, they’ll look to the gambling gods or even the Big Guy in the Sky for a sign of who to wager on.

Such is the case this year for the 87th Masters (April 6-9 ), which is now less than a week away from teeing off at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.

The 29-year-old Texan, who won the Masters back in 2015, is a Christian and reportedly occasionally attends PGA Tour Bible study meetings.

Spieth has been quoted as saying his priorities are, in order, “My faith and then my family, and then after that, you know, this is what I love to do.”

The former No. 1 in the world currently is ranked No. 16 and has enjoyed a solid 2023 thus far with five top-25 finishes in 10 starts including a T-4 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and a T-3 at the Valspar Championship.

He also has four other top-3 finishes at The Masters.

But what really has put faith in some for Spieth to win his fourth major and second green jacket, is this:

Easter Sunday 2021: Jordan Spieth wins Texas Open

Easter Sunday 2022: Jordan Spieth wins RBC Heritage

Easter Sunday 2023: Final round of The Masters

As you can imagine, some wonder whether this is Spieth’s fate or merely a coincidence and a good time to fire off a quick quip.


Can Jesus help him make a 3-foot putt?

The Spiethster Bunny is coming!

He’ll finish resurrecting his career on Sunday.

Those are the mild ones. You can imagine how many more will be written before Easter evening.

Others rightfully point out that the world’s No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler, last year’s Masters champion, is an even more devout Christian than Spieth. After winning last year at Augusta, Scheffler said: “The reason why I play golf is I’m trying to glorify God and all that He’s done in my life.”

He could become the first man to wear consecutive green jackets since sinner Tiger Woods, ahem, did the deed in 2001-02.

For many churchgoers, Scheffler winning would be pure joy.

For others, my goodness, wouldn’t it be something if Woods was somehow in contention down the stretch with Spieth and/or Sheffler on Sunday?

That would be a devilishly good time while shattering TV ratings (and beliefs) while becoming the most-watched final 30 minutes in sports broadcasting history.

Don’t bet on it – the Tiger part, I mean (He’s 55-to-1; don’t even think about throwing any at that).

Anyhow, with all of these scenarios whirling around in our heads, let’s take a look at the current odds. Note: I have two dark horses in bold, followed by my predicted winner at the end, but please do sprinkle a little on Cam Smith (top-10 finishes in four of the past five Masters, including runner-up in 2021) and Max Homa (No. 6 in the world who has the perfect game for Augusta).

My Best Bet to WIN the 2023 Masters:

Jon Rahm (+850)

The 28-year-old Spainard is primed to win his second major following his U.S. Open triumph in 2021.

He’s ranked No. 3 in the world, has won three tournaments already this year – along with six top-10 finishes – and his 2023 stats look like this.

Tour rankings in parentheses:

Scoring Average: 68.903 (1)

Birdies Per Round: 5.21 (1)

Eagles Per Hole: 47.5 (1)

Driving Distance: 314.1 (5)

Putts Per Hole: 1.674 (2)

Rahm is second on the money list so far this season ($10,048,540) and I truly believe he’ll take home the staggering $2.7 million first-prize money after winning his first green jacket and second major. Have faith, folks.
