But more than just the amount of time that will elapse between now and the start of the Masters betting odds this year, the health of one Tiger Woods will impact any potential outcomes that the Masters odds might predict.
The Masters odds makers will favor Woods in this competition no matter what his physical state nor how much time he’s taken off since playing in a PGA event. If Tiger Woods name is on the entry list he will be favored in the Masters odds. It’s a simple fact of life and it would take a very brave bettor (or some inside knowledge) to bet against the mighty Woods.
But assuming Woods doesn’t make it back in time for the Masters odds competition there is a talented field of golfers licking their chops at the chance to claim the Masters odds title –with or without Woods in the field.
World number two and perennial foil for Woods heroics, Phil Mickelson, has to be at the top of all the Masters odds makers lists as a favorite. And despite his historic melt-downs suffered during events in the past, Mickelson is as good as they come and his touch around the greens and out of the traps seems tailor-made for the Masters odds competition. His two Green Jackets also attest to his prowess in the Masters betting odds competition and you’ve got to like his chances.
Veteran Ernie Els also has a soft touch and has finished runner up in the Masters odds on two occasions. It wouldn’t be surprising to seem him with a win in this year’s edition of the Masters odds, but there is a crop of golfing young guns that have perhaps even a better shot at the title.
Anthony Kim came out of nowhere last year to emerge as one of the best players on tour and an instant contender for the Masters odds crown in 2009. He has no weakness in his game and if he can keep focused, Mickelson is the only one with shot at beating him. Fellow American Zach Johnson has also proven resistant to the pressures of the event and his 2007 Green jacket makes him a front runner in the Masters odds 2009 competition as well.
