2012 Masters Odds: Tiger Woods Remains The Heavy Favorite

After winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational two weekends ago, Tiger Woods have turned the golf world on its collective ear.

Woods finally broke through after his very public incident and now is the clear favorite to win the 2012 Masters Tournament, according to BOVADA.

Woods has slipped a little after starting the week as a (4/1) pick. He's still being shown ample respect, but the betting folks have expressed some doubt in his ability to win two tournaments in a row.

The four-time Masters champion is now a (9/2) favorite with Rory McIlroy (6/1) and Phil Mickelson (11/1) right behind. McIlroy is an exceptional talent and many expect he'll put on quite a show in his quest for a green jacket.

Some other tempting bets include Luke Donald and Rickie Fowler.

Donald is the No. 1 ranked player in the world and has (16/1) odds while Fowler is a legitimate talent (even if he needs to prove quite a bit) who could surprise but has been put down at (100/1).

St. John's alum Keegan Bradley is also one of the trendy picks at (25/1).
