If you're seeking some thrilling, down-to-the-wire action, look no further than Round 4 of the 2014 Masters at Augusta National.

With 13 players within four strokes of the lead, just about anything can happen on Sunday.

Bubba Watson is searching for his second green jacket in three years. Masters rookie, 20-year-old Jordan Spieth is attempting to become the youngest winner in tournament history. Matt Kuchar continues to improve with every passing round.

Needless to say, we're in for a dramatic conclusion to this historic tournament.

It comes as no surprise Bubba Watson is the favorite to win it all this year.

Despite a third-round 74, Watson has done a marvelous job navigating the treacherous Augusta National. He has plenty of experience in this situation—it was only two years ago when he took home his first green jacket.

Watson knows what it takes to win on Sunday at Augusta. Expect him to enter the tournament's final round very well prepared. This is where the smart money goes.

Jordain Spieth is very intriguing as well. He's recorded three rounds under par so far at his Masters debut. The only other golfer in this year's field to do the same is Jonas Blixt.

Spieth will be the youngest Masters champion ever if he can hold on to the lead through 18 more holes. However, his inexperience in this situation could come back to haunt him in the end. Playing in the final group on Sunday at Augusta will be a daunting task for this up-and-coming player.

Matt Kuchar has improved with every round at the Masters. He began with a 73 in Round 1, improved to a 71 in Round 2 and fired a 68 in Round 3. If he continues that trend in the final round, he has a great shot of donning new apparel at tournament's end.

If your money isn't going on Watson, it should certainly be on Kuchar.

The dark horse here is Justin Rose. The reigning U.S. Open champion looked to be making an early exit after shooting a 76 on Thursday. However, he found his groove in a big way, recording rounds of 70 and 69 thereafter.

Obviously, Rose is familiar with this situation. He's in the hunt for another major win. He's done it once before, and even though the odds are slightly against him, it certainly wouldn't be surprising to see him surge on Sunday and do it again.

At 28-1 odds, he could earn a huge payday—not only for himself, but for anyone willing to take a gamble on Sunday.
