Woods favored to win...the Masters

Yes, the Masters odds are already out in some precincts. Jeff Sherman, the assistant director of the Las Vegas Hilton Superbook, has established Woods as a 5/1 betting favorite in the 2011 Masters.

Golflasvegasnow.com asked Sherman why Woods is the favorite, given his recent form.

"He has eight months to practice," Sherman said.

Phil Mickelson is 7/1, while Rory McIlroy is 12/1.

The odds on Woods winning the Grand Slam in 2011 are 100/1.
