Masters Odds – Is it Jason’s Day or Will Spieth Repeat?

A few years ago, news that Tiger Woods will miss the Masters would’ve led to a ratings disaster for the PGA. But there will be no Tiger prowling the greens at the 80th edition, and the golf world couldn’t care less. The new era of golf is in full swing and this weekend, Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy will all try to establish themselves as the game’s new frontrunner.

Spieth was the favorite to repeat at Augusta for much of last year after he ran away with the green jacket and placed no worse than fourth in any major. But after the hot streak Day had to close out 2015 and then open this season, he has eked past Spieth as the new favorite.

While it’s a huge field at Augusta with a ton of great stories to follow – like first-time participant and former Donald Trump employee Jim Herman – the focus will be on a select few. Be it McIlroy trying to bounce back from last year’s injury-plagued season or former multiple-time winners Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson trying to add yet another jacket to their closets, Sunday will have enough storylines to overcome the lack of any charging red shirts.

I guess you can tell, we’re amped up for golf’s major season to finally get under way. And the best way to expend that energy is to compile a big ol’ list of props, so that’s just what we did. Here’s SBD’s list of 2016 Masters odds.
