It’s just 100 days until the 2016 Masters, so I thought it was a good time to take a look at the odds to win the 2016 Masters.
Defending Champion Jordan Spieth is of course the odds-on favorite at 13/2. That means that bettors have given Spieth a 13.3% chance of picking up his second green jacket in as many years. It’s not out of the question. In 2014 before, Spieth tied for second, just three shots off the winner, Bubba Watson.
Rory McIlroy is in at 7/1, which translates to an 12.5% chance of winning. The Masters is all that stands between Rory and the Career Slam, so you can be sure it is high on his list..
Jason Day at 8/1 is given an 11% chance of winning. He could definitely win — if he manages to avoid the strange setbacks that have struck him over the last several years.
Bubba Watson, who has won two of the last four Masters’ tournaments is in at 14/1. That’s a 6.67 chance to win. I’m frankly a little surprised that he’s not more in line with Spieth, McIlroy and Day along the 7/1 – 8/1 lines. If he wins, it will come as no surprise to anyone.
The big surprise to me is that Tiger Woods is in at 40/1. Louis Oosthuizen is in at 50/1. Charl Schwartzel is in at 66/2. Former Masters Champion and Reigning Open Champion Zach Johnson is at 80/1. Who could seriously think Tiger has a better chance of winning than those three? Or than others behind him like Keegan Bradley, Gary Woodland and Bill Haas?
I doubt that Tiger even tees it up at the Masters this year.
