How to PointsBet the Masters: Go big or go home

Let’s say you love Kevin Na. Love his social media. Love how he walks in his putts. And love his chances at Augusta National.

Sure, PointsBet allows you to take him to win (+25000), to finish in the top 10 (+1100) or to make the cut (-154). Or to roll the dice that he’ll finish as the low American (+10000) or make an ace (+12500).

But if we’re talking true devotion, click on the PointsBetting to the right of Fixed Odds.

That’s where things get juicy.

PointsBet pioneered this style of betting. In football the wagers include a quarterback’s passing yards, a team’s total points and the game’s total.

In golf it works like this: Na’s finishing position is projected to fall between 41-44.

Let’s say you believe Na will overperform. If you wager $10 and Na finishes 21st, you win $200. It’s a multiplier. If you think he’s more like Kevin Nah and bet $10 on the over, a 64th-place finish would net you $200.

Every shot matters.

It’s important to note that PointsBetting works both ways. If you bet on Na to finish over 44 and he finishes Top 20, you will lose at least $200. PointsBetting is best used if you are extremely confident in your knowledge but only want to wager a smaller amount. If you’re right you will be rewarded handsomely.

Just ask those who used Pointsbetting to wager on Jimmy Butler during his 40-point triple double in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. A $1 wager on the Butler multiplier (points x rebounds x assists) netted clients $2,000, the maximum win.

Indeed, there are also multipliers for the Masters: One is called Leaderboard (LB) and the other, Wire to Wire Leaderboard (WTW).

Leaderboard adds (or subtracts) extra points based on how a player rises (or falls) during the tournament. Wire to wire leaderboard is a measure of the player’s standing at the end of each round. Click on the little “i” info button for more details.

Na, by the way, tees off in Group 7 with Matt Kuchar and Lee Westwood at 7:33 a.m. ET Thursday.

Be prepared.
