We reshuffled the first round Masters leader board according to their predicted odds to win. Here's how it looks

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

By the end of play Thursday, here's what the Masters leader board looked like. Bill Haas led the way, with the two most recent Masters champions, Adam Scott and Bubba Watson, just a shot behind.

We took those 11 names and re-ranked them based on their adjusted odds to win after the first round given by the betting website Bovada. Here's how it compares.

Adam Scott obviously jumps into the lead, and Bill Haas slips down to fourth. No love for Kevin Stadler or Jonas Blixt, though. At 66/1 and 80/1 to respectively, it seems it's all downhill for the two Masters rookies from here.
