Woods tops early odds for 2014 Masters

Tiger Woods is listed as the 2014 Masters favorite by oddsmakers at the Las Vegas Hilton (Woods is shown here at Augusta National last year).

World No. 1 Tiger Woods, who won five events during the PGA Tour's 2013 season yet came up short at all four majors, stands atop the odds to win the 2014 Masters. Woods tops the list at 6-1 despite an ailing back that prompted a WD at the Honda Classic and a final-round 78 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. One has to wonder how much more of a favorite to win he could be with a strong (read: healthy) showing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational next week.

Rory McIlroy is close behind at 8-1, with Jason Day third at 12-1 and Phil Mickelson tied with defending champion Adam Scott and Dustin Johnson at 15-1.

Also of note: Last week's winner, Patrick Reed – who attended GRU-Augusta – is not listed individually. For now, that places him in the "field" at 15-1.
