Tiger Woods' withdrawal from last week's Honda Classic likely cost him his the title of oddsmakers' favorite at this week's WGC-Cadillac Championship.

Last week Woods withdrew from the final round after 12 holes, citing an issue with his back. Las Vegas took notice, making Rory McIlroy the 7/1 favorite.

Woods is next at 12/1 with Australian Adam Scott. Dustin Johnson is 15/1, with a trio of WGC-Accenture Match Play contestants – Jason Day, Spain’s Sergio Garcia and Jordan Spieth – at 20/1.

After withdrawing from Doral in 2012, Woods was a 10/1 favorite last year and won by two shots over Steve Stricker.

The withdrawal also affected Woods' favorite status going into the Masters in early April. In the middle of February, Woods was a 6/1 favorite, but Monday the most recent odds for the Masters made Woods a 7/1 co-favorite with McIlroy.
