2014 The Masters Odds Reveal Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson as Favorites


Tiger Woods The Masters Odds

Las Vegas, Nevada (January 8, 2014)--Recent PGA TOUR betting odds released by GolfOdds.com reveal Tiger Woods as a 5/1 favorite to win The Masters followed by a trio of golfers at 12/1. The three are Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, and former Las Vegas Golf Region resident Adam Scott. And 2013 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open champ Webb Simpson is 50/1. Another Las Vegas golfer included in the odds is Nick Watney at 60/1. The Masters will be played April 10-13 in Augusta, and viewing parties at Las Vegas sports books are becoming more and more popular each year much like football viewing parties. --By Brian Hurlburt, Odds by Jeff Sherman.

The SuperBook at LVH has a special room that can be reserved for parties in addition to other televisions throughout the book being tuned to the event. Also, betting has increased each year for the event as golf wagering becomes more popular. And the odds reflect the public's willingness to put money on the big names despite little recent success in the tournament.

Players who have some decent value appear to be Graeme McDowell at 50/1 and the previously mentioned Simpson. McDowell tied for 12 at Augusta in 2012 (missed cut last year) but is playing solid golf cyrrently and finished in the top 10 at the HSBC Champions earlier this season.

Simpson doesn't have much history at The Masters but is playing as well as anybody so far in the 2014 season wtih three top 10 finishes in five starts. He was tied for the lead entering the final round of the Tournament of Champions this past weekend.
