Betting Odds To Win The 2011 Masters; March 13, 2011

What we learn from looking at the early odds to win the 2011 Masters is that the betting public isn’t yet over the former former number one. He’s starting to look like that Linus blanket left over from your childhood. You don’t need it any more, but don’t want to give it up for old times’ sake. Tiger is currently the odds-on favorite to win the 2011 Masters at 6/1. We’ll see how that changes as we get closer to the Masters.

Phil, in my mind, is a better bet, even at 7/1. Lefty’s record at the Masters over the last ten years has been remarkable: Since 2000 (in order) – T7, 3, 3, 3, 1, 10, 1, T24, T5, 5, 1. But its too early to say. I’m still not convinced that he’s over the bout with arthritis he had last year.

After that, we have a series of European players: Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer (14/1), Rory McIlroy (20/1), then Paul Casey and Graeme McDowell (25/1). Dustin Johnson (16/1), Ernie Els (40/1) and Padraig Harrington (40/1) finish out the top ten.

You read a betting line by looking at the second number first. That is how much you bet. The first number is how much you win. So in the case of the former-former, a bet of $1 would pay $6 if he wins.
