Revised Masters Odds

The first two rounds at the 2009 Masters from Augusta National are in the books as the tournament now rolls onto the final two rounds Saturday and Sunday. Let’s take a look at the revised odds after the first round of cuts.

Bet the 2009 Masters

Even though he remains seven shots off the leaders Chad Campbell and Kenny Perry, oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have made Tiger Woods a 4/1 favorite to win the 2009 Masters. Woods has struggled in the first two rounds, shooting a 70 and a 72, respectively. He started the tournament as a 2/1 favorite.

The next best odds to win this year’s Masters tournament belong to the leaders Campbell (11/2) and Perry (5/1), the latter of which grabbed a share of the 36-hole lead by playing some of his best rounds of his career. If he succeeds at Augusta, the 48-year old Perry would be the first to ever win a major championship at his age (or older).

Campbell out shot everyone one in the field in Round 1 by finishing with a 65, but he struggled a bit in Round 2 while still finishing with a respectable score of 70. Perry shot a 68 in Round 1, then bested that mark with a 67 in Round 2. Ironically, Perry missed the cut in five of his eight previous Masters appearances, with his best finish coming in 1995 when he tied for 12th.

Those still high on Tiger’s chances to win this year’s Masters need to heed the warning that he has never won a major when trailing by more than six shots after 36 holes. But Woods has overcome long odds (on the course) before, and there’s no way better when his back is against the wall. At 4/1 odds, he might still be the best value in the Masters’ field.
