The PGA Tour wrapped up its Florida Swing last week at Bay Hill, and it’s now on to Texas for a two-stop run up to the Masters. The first tournament is in Austin for this week’s WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play at the Pete Dye-designed Austin Country Club.

As a World Golf Championships event, the field in Austin is loaded with top-ranked players, including 64 of the top 70. Last week’s winner Rory McIlroy, who won this event in 2015, is the favorite this week at 7-1, just ahead of defending champion, and World No. 1, Dustin Johnson, who is offered at 8-1.

No one else in the field has odds with a payoff line in the single digits.
