Masters’ Odds, Storylines: Tiger, Rory Lead the Way


The Masters, the season’s first major championship, gets underway next Monday at Augusta National Golf Club.

This year’s tournament is shaping up to be one the anticipated editions in recent memory with a rejuvenated Tiger Woods headlining a stout field that offers all kinds of juicy storylines.

A four-time Masters champion, Woods will be joined by superstars Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Brooks Koepka, Rickie Fowler, and Jordan Spieth, among others.

McIlroy is the tournament favorite at 7-1. A win would complete the career grand slam for the 29-year old Northern Irishman. Woods, one of the top-5 betting favorites, is listed at 14-1 to take home his first major since 2008.

Other top storylines include big-game Koepka (20-1) attempting to win three of the last four majors; Rose (14-1) looking to add a Green Jacket to his Olympic Gold Medal and Silver U.S. Open Trophy; Fowler (22-1) seeking to lose the ‘Best Player to Never Win a Major’ label; and Spieth (22-1) returning to his safe space of Augusta, while attempting to break what has been a stunning, and horrific, slump for the young Texan, which ironically began after exiting Augusta one year ago.
