The Masters Betting Odds

Coming off his win Sunday at the Shell Houston Open, and heading into Augusta as the defending champion, Phil Mickelson is favored to win this week at the Masters.

A look at some notable player odds:

Phil Mickelson 6-1
Tiger Woods 10-1
Lee Westwood 14-1
Nick Watney 16-1
Martin Kaymer, Dustin Johnson 20-1
Luke Donald, Paul Casey, Rory McIlroy 25-1
Hunter Mahan, Padraig Harrington, Matt Kuchar 28-1
McDowell, Stricker, Watson, Anthony Kim, Fowler 33-1
Fred Couples 80-1
Ryo Ishikawa 150-1
Tom Watson 400-1

Looking at the overall board, there are so many players capable of winning. Of course, there is Tiger and Phil with seven combined green jackets already. There is a host of European players who could take it, a bunch of great young players in search of their first major, as well as a group of wily veterans prepared to win.

I'd love to see someone like Fowler, Ishikawa, or AK win. It would be great for golf.
