We are less than 24 hours away from the start of the 2019 Masters and I know how excited everyone is. No need to hype this tournament up so we’ll get right to the picks.

If you want to listen to the DFS Datalytics Driver Off the Deck podcast that can be found here https://dfsdatalytics2.podbean.com. Now let’s look at some plays for this week!
Rory McIlroy ($11,600) – Rory is the hottest player in the world right now and is looking to complete the career Grand Slam this week. Rory is in great form right now and has 5 straight Top 10 finishes at Augusta. Over his past 5 events he has gained an average of at least 1 stroke over the field in every major category. This includes 10.2 SG:T2G, 5.1 SG:OTT and 3.2 SG:App. In that same time frame Rory is also averaging 5.3 Good Drives Gained, 6.2 GIR’s Gained, 4.9 Birdies Gained while avoiding 3.8 Bogeys. Rory has also been great with his long irons and prefers lightning fast greens. I expect Rory to take advantage of the Par 5’s at Augusta this week and get his first Green Jacket on Sunday.
