If you’re a bettor and a Tiger Woods believer, hopefully you’ve already made your wager on Woods to win the first major championship of the season.
Following his second made cut in three starts on the PGA Tour this year, and his best finish since 2015 at the Honda Classic, Tiger Woods’ betting odds to win the Masters have gotten significantly smaller.
When Masters odds opened, Tiger Woods was 100-1. Not anymore. https://t.co/3LEPEvxJ17

Kevin Casey of Golfweek.com had more on the adjustment Las Vegas sportsbooks made following Tiger’s performance at PGA National.
Tiger Woods impressed at the Honda Classic, and (unsurprisingly) his odds at Augusta National have improved.
After opening at 100-to-1 odds to win the 2018 Masters, Woods went to 20-1 odds by mid-January. He went to 25-1 after his missed cut at the Genesis Open, but now he’s trending in the opposite direction after his solo 12th at PGA National.
According to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, Woods’ Masters odds are now 16-1.

Only six players are ahead of him now. Dustin Johnson is the favorite at 7-1, with Jordan Spieth second at 9-1. Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Jason Day and Jon Rahm are all at 12-1.
And Woods is sitting pretty at his 16-1 number with Rickie Fowler.
Woods, 42, has won four Masters (1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005) among his 14 major titles and now owns two top 25s in three PGA Tour starts since his return from a fourth back surgery.
