Filed under: PGA Golf Betting Odds |

Bet On The 2013 Masters @ BovadaFew sporting events evoke the same type of nostalgia and aura than that of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club. It’s one of the great annual spectacles in golf, and beginning on Thursday the 2013 Masters is set to get underway. It’s the first Major championship of the season, and with many of the game’s top players in the world finding form, it has the makings to be an exciting tournament. But then again, the Masters rarely disappoints.

Of course, there is one player who has stood out this season above the rest, and has made a habit of doing that for the majority of his career.

Tiger Woods is back to the top of the world golf rankings, overtaking Rory McIlroy a couple of weeks ago with his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Woods has won three times in five starts on the PGA Tour this season, getting back to his winning ways and old form. But winning might be the only thing similar to this Tiger Woods. His swing has been revamped, as has his image.

The four-time Masters winner appears to be in complete control of his game from tee to green, which it’s been a while since someone has said that. And oddsmakers have certainly taken notice. Woods is a huge favorite to win a fifth Masters, which would put him just one back of Jack Nicklaus’s six green jackets. It would also give Woods 15 total Major championships. 2013 Masters betting odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have installed the top-ranked player at 3/1 on the line to win this week.

If you have been following the Masters lines with LatestBettingOdds this year, you might notice a quick change near the top as well. Woods has been right around this payout for about a month, but the jump came from this past Sunday on into Masters week with Rory McIlroy. McIlroy elected to stay in Texas for another week to play at the Valero Texas Open, because he felt that he needed more tournament competition to shake off some self-admitted rust.

That has appeared to pay off, as McIlroy tabbed a runner-up finish this past weekend to Martin Laird. McIlroy certainly looked pretty sharp on the weekend, shooting a final round 66 on Sunday to close the tournament out. McIlroy has jumped up from 12/1 last week, all the way to 8/1. In fact, McIlroy was behind Phil Mickelson until his finish at the Valero Texas Open.

Mickelson, a three-time Masters winner, has remained the same at 10/1. Lefty did not compete last week, though he did play at the Shell Houston Open two weeks ago. Mickelson, like Woods, is always considered a top favorite, having last won the Masters in 2010.

Continuing with some of the other favorites this week, Justin Rose has been set at 20/1. Rose is still looking for his first Major Championship. His best finish in the Masters came back in 2007, when he finished T-5.

Charl Schwartzel won the 2011 Masters, so there is no question that he knows how to play Augusta National. Schwartzel has been slated as 22/1 to win for a second time, installed with the same odds as Dustin Johnson. Johnson has come close to winning a Major, but has yet to break through the winner’s circle.

For the complete list of Masters favorites this week, check out the full odds below as they can be seen on Bovada. These odds will be up all week long leading up to the first tee shot. And even from there, there will be revised betting lines formed throughout the course of the week as well through the final round on Sunday.
