Tiger Woods is no longer the betting favorite to win the Masters

January 29, 2019

Ever since his big win at the Tour Championship late last year, Tiger Woods has been listed no lower than co-favorite to win the 2019 Masters. Not anymore. With his record-breaking victory at the Farmers Insurance Open, Justin Rose is now the odds-on favorite to claim the green jacket.

According to Golfodds.com, Rose is 12-1 to win at Augusta National in April. That  seems appropriate, given that Rose is also No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking. The 10-time PGA Tour winner has been on a tear since last season, when he narrowly beat out Tiger to win the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus.

As for Woods, he is now tied for the second-best odds to win at 14-1. He’s joined by four other heavyweights: Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka.

But of all those players, only Woods and Spieth have green jackets hanging in their lockers (or, in Tiger’s case, jackets). Rose has finished runner-up twice at Augusta, in 2015 and 2017.

Byrson DeChambeau, the only player who may be even hotter than Rose right now, comes in with 16-1 odds, same as Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler.

Perhaps no player is receiving less respect from the oddsmakers than Phil Mickelson. Phil has won the Masters three times, and he shot a 60 on his way to nearly winning the Desert Classic two weeks ago. But Lefty’s odds currently sit at 40-1.
