Betting Odds To Win The 2010 Masters

I think it’s somewhat of a surprise that Tiger Woods is a 4/1 betting favorite to win the 2010 Masters Tournament. Given the stress that he’s been under, it would be an extraordinarily inhuman feat to be able to pull off such a victory. But there it is.

Phil Mickelson at 9/1, Ernie Els at 10/1 and Steve Stricker at 14/1 are the more conventional star picks, as is Padraig Harrington at 16/1. The superstars are always betting favorites, but in truth, they are not consistent winners. Take a look at the last ten years (counting backward): Angel Cabrera, Trevor Immelman, Zach Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Mike Weir, Tiger, Tiger, Vijay Singh. Cabrera, Immelman, Johnson and Weir are the only winners not named Tiger or Phil—and none of them could be considered stars. For heavens sake, the final group last year was Cabrera, Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell.

  1. I think Els at 10 to 1 is right.  Phil is 20 to 1.  Tiger is somewhere between.  Freddie is not on this list, huh?  I put him about 30 to 1.
