Masters Odds 2013: Latest Info on Favorites Heading into Final Round
With one more round at the 2013 Masters, there's still plenty of opportunity to make some money this weekend.
This has been a rather unpredictable tournament as the biggest names on the tour don't find themselves near the top of the leaderboard. The guys there are talented golfers, but it's unlikely too many people had money on Jason Day, Marc Leishman, Fred Couples or Tim Clark to have had the kind of performances they put on display.
Here's a quick look at the leaderboard:
Brandt Snedeker and Angel Cabrera share the lead at seven under. Seeing Snedeker there isn't a huge shock considering he's near the top of the world golf rankings. And Cabrera has already won himself a green jacket.
Along with Snedeker and Cabrera here are the other top favorites to win the 2013 Masters. Odds are courtesy of Bovada.
Brandt Snedeker: 2/1
It's understandable why Snedeker is the favorite right now. He was scary consistent during the third round on Saturday, which was just an extension of his play in the first two rounds.
Snedeker was bogey-free in the third round. On a course like Augusta, anytime you avoid getting any bogeys, you deserve a pat on the back at the very least. Instead, Snedeker got himself a part of the lead after his three birdies moved him up to seven under for the tournament.
If he can continue that type of play into Sunday, there's every reason to think Snedeker will win his first green jacket. At only 2/1, though, it might not be worth it to put money on Snedeker unless you're going to get a huge return.
Adam Scott: 7/2
With a three-under 69 in the third round, Adam Scott moved to within a shot of the lead. He was one of the runners-up in 2011 and finished in a tie for eighth in 2012.
Augusta is a course where Scott looks to have a certain comfort level. He really came on strong on the back nine. Much like Snedeker, Scott avoided costly mistakes but didn't manage to bridge the gap between himself and the leaders. Then, he birdied 13, 15 and 17 and shot up the leaderboard.
Scott has never managed to win a major, but he's found himself in contention on multiple occasions. He seems to be a fairly safe bet going into Sunday.
Angel Cabrera: 5/1
It's quite a curious thing that Cabrera has worse odds than both Scott and Snedeker. He finished with a three-under 69 for the third round, much as Scott and Snedeker did, and Cabrera is the only one of the three who has actually won a green jacket.
Granted he hasn't had the kind of success recently that the other two have, but you would think Cabrera would get a little more credit. Putting him behind Snedeker is one thing, but behind Scott is a bit odd.
Putting some money on Cabrera might be a very smart bet. The odds are big enough that you could have a nice return on your investment.
Tiger Woods: 11/2
After Tiger Woods' two-stroke penalty for his drop on the 15th hole in the third round (h/t Rachel Nichols and Steve Almasy of CNN.com), you probably counted him out. While Woods recovered slightly, it will take a lot of things going right for him to win a fifth Masters title.
Woods is four strokes back of Cabrera and Snedeker. He's created a separate persona for himself that's reserved for the final day of major tournaments. Woods puts on the red shirt, and he's a different player.
Making up that big of a gap, though, is going to demand a masterful performance from Woods coinciding with the guys at the top either falling or at the very least sticking with their current scores.
