The Masters 2020 Price Boosts – Paddy Power

The Masters 2020 golf gets underway on Thursday and you don’t want to miss these Paddy Power price boosts! They’ve enhanced Rory McIlroy to finish in the top 5 from 5/2 to 9/2 and Tiger Woods to make the cut from 1/2 to evens. Translated into matched betting terms, this gives us a guaranteed profit of £8.15 and here’s how…

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

The maximum stake for these price boosts is £20.00.

As you can see, the calculator tells us that our lay stake should be £23.50…

Place £20.00 on Rory Mcilroy to finish in the top 5 @ 5.50 = Potential profit of £90.00

Lay £23.50 on Rory McIlroy – Top 5 @ 4.70 = Potential liability of £86.95

Outcomes:

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

Outcome Bookie Exchange Profit/Loss
McIlroy finishes in the top 5 + £90.00 – £86.95 £3.05 profit
McIlroy finishes outside the top 5 – £20.00 + £23.03 £3.03 profit

So, no matter where McIlroy finishes, we’ll make a guaranteed profit of £3.03 on this Paddy Power price boost!

Note: If you would prefer a risk-free shot at £14.49 profit, you can simply use the ‘UNDERLAY‘ tab in the ‘Advanced‘ section of the calculator.
