The Masters 2021 tees off on Thursday and you don’t want to miss these Paddy Power price boosts! They’ve enhanced Jordan Spieth to finish in the top 5 (including ties) from 5/2 to a rather nice 5/1 and Rory McIlroy to do the same from 3/1 to 11/2. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £5.12 and here’s how…

1. Jordan Spieth to finish in the top 5

If you’d like more information about price boosts and how they work, please see my price boosts guide.

Place £20.00 on Jordan Spieth to finish in the top 5 (inc. ties) @ 6.00 = Potential profit of £100.00

Lay £25.64 on Jordan Spieth (Top 5) @ 4.70 = Potential liability of £94.86

Outcomes

Let’s have a look at our profit/loss for the two potential outcomes…

Spieth finishes in top 5+ £100.00– £94.86£5.14 profit

So, no matter where Jordan Spieth finishes, we’ll make a guaranteed profit of £5.12 on this Paddy Power price boost!

McIlroy finishes in top 5+ £110.00– £97.96£12.04 profit
McIlroy finishes outside top 5– £20.00+ £20.00£0.00

So, if Rory McIlroy finishes outside the top 5, we’ll break even and there’s no harm done. However, if he finishes in the top 5, we’ll make a nice risk-free profit of £12.04 on this Paddy Power price boost!

Note: If you would prefer to lock in a smaller profit, you can simply use the ‘Standard‘ tab on the calculator for a guaranteed profit of £2.04.

* Jordan Spieth finished in a tie for 3rd place and Rory McIlroy missed the cut, resulting in a profit of £5.14 on these Paddy Power price boosts. *
