If you thought that the Super Bowl was the only way to play Squares pools with your friends, then rejoice because you can do the same for The Masters. I know people who have won Squares pools with no knowledge about the NFL, so don’t be discouraged if your golf game isn’t up to par.
I know you probably play fantasy football, so holding a Masters Tournament draft shouldn’t be too much of a problem. We’ll get into these Masters’ betting games and more to play with your friends below.
Golf isn’t the first sport for many sports bettors, but with Masters Tournament betting pools, you can make it a watchable event.
Masters Tournament Betting Pool – Squares
If you’re searching for Masters Tournament betting games, there’s a good chance that you know how Squares pools work for the Super Bowl. You may have played it with friends, coworkers in the office, or at a local bar pool.
Players have the option of a tournament-long pool or round-to-round. The format is the same, though, with a 10×10 grid numbered from 0-9 on each axis. Only the leading-golfer at the end of The Masters or round is taken into consideration.
The pool administrator must take into account his final score and how many birdies or better this golfer accumulated. The numbers are compared, and this is where the ball lands on the grid. If the numbers are in the double digits, the last digit is the number of importance.
For instance, if Rory McIlroy finishes with a -11 and has 15 birdies, the winner is 1 and 5 on the axis. Further, if you are playing round-by-round, after the first round, if he’s at -3 with 4 birdies and an eagle, then 3 and 5 on the axis is marked for a winner.
Masters Tournament Betting Pool – Fantasy Draft
The vast majority of people reading this has participated in a fantasy draft. The same snake-style fantasy draft can be done for a Masters betting game. It’s completely up to you what format you’d like to do and how many rounds are included.
If five golfers aren’t enough and you want a deeper draft, then up the number of rounds to your liking. It’s also possible to have a big board where each golfer is ranked to make it easier for people drafting in the Masters’ pool. The simplest way to set up your board is by using the World Rankings or the betting odds at a sportsbook. The entry with the best odds to win The Masters will be No. 1 on your big board and so on.
Masters Tournament Betting Pool – Props
