Tiger Woods has been installed as a heavy betting favorite in Las Vegas sports books to win the Masters, Thursday through Sunday at Augusta National Golf Club.
Bettors backing Woods at the windows will get paid at odds of plus-125 (risk $1 to net $1.25) if he wins the tournament. Woods is shooting for his fifth Masters title and 14th major title.
Bettors who opt to back the entire rest of the field against Woods can get a price of minus-140 (risk $1.40 to win $1). That wager would be a winner if any other player wins the tournament.
Odds are from the Las Vegas Hilton sports book and are subject to change.
