The Masters is the most bet on golf event of the year. Whether you're a casual golf fan or just like filling out an office pool, you're probably going to bet a couple of dollars if you're reading this article.

I've already given out my top 3 picks to win in my full betting preview article, but in this piece, I'm going to break down a few long shot odds.

Having a long shot golfer win The Masters isn't completely unheard of. Zach Johnson, Trevor Immelman, and Angel Cabrera won at odds of at least 125/1 from 2007-2009.

Even if you don't want to bet on these golfers to win, they may be good options for your office golf pool. So, without further delay, here are my top 3 longshot bets to win this year's edition of the Masters.

All odds listed are via WynnBET Sportsbook.

3 Longshot Bets to Win the 2022 Masters

Si Woo Kim +9000

Si Woo Kim seems to be a name that pops up every now and then, and he's always performed well at Augusta National. He was near the top of the leaderboard heading into the weekend last year, but a 74 on Saturday led him to finishing in 12th.

He could make another strong appearance this year, especially considering his recent form. He finished T13 at the Valero Texas Open. If he can dial in his putting this week, he's going to be a fantastic dark horse bet.

Max Homa +10000

People still seem to think that Max Homa is just another average Tour golfer who will be in contention a couple of times a season, but that's no longer true. It's time to give him the respect he deserves.

He ranks 24th in Tour in total strokes gained this season, including 28th in strokes gained: tee-to-green. He also has a career win at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club. Not only was it a very strong field when he won it in 2021, but many say that Riviera is the course that most closely resembles Augusta National. Keep an eye on Homa this week.

Luke List +12500

Eight of the last 10 winners at Augusta National ranked inside the top 10 in strokes gained: tee-to-green heading into Masters week. If you followed the trend last season, you would've been a stroke away from having a chance to cash a 120/1 ticket on Will Zalatoris.

This year, List ranks third on Tour in that statistic heading into Masters week. If the the trend continues this week, he could be in contention when the weekend comes around.

Wild Card Bet of the Week

Want another longshot? FanSided's Cody Williams wrote about backing 64-year old Bernhard Langer to finish in the Top 20 this week. Here's what he had to say:

"We’re getting wild here. WynnBet has the 64-year-old Bernhard Langer’s odds to win at an eye-popping +100000. That’s not happening, but the two-time winner here has been impressive when he tees it up every year given his age. He’s still made the cut in four of the last six years and has two Top 30 finishes in that span."

"Given where his odds are set to win, he legitimately might be in the +1000 range to finish in the Top 20. Course knowledge is perhaps more important at Augusta National than anywhere else, so seeing the veteran at that number is worth at least a small, small sprinkle this week as a longshot."
