The Odds-On Favorite To Win The Masters: Jordan Spieth 6/1
Spieth won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by four shots last week to move from a 8/1 favorite to a 6/1 favorite. Since turning pro in 2012, Spieth has recorded nine wins on the PGA Tour and nearly pulled off the impossible by winning the Masters and U.S. Open to start 2015 before finishing fourth at the Open Championship and second at the PGA Championship.
In his last three appearances at the Masters, Spieth has two-second place finishes and one win, including last year’s second place finish. Spieth is not a lock to win the 2017 Masters, but he’s about as close as it gets these days.
The Smart Bet To Win The Masters: Dustin Johnson 12/1
Not only does Dustin Johnson, have a dozen career wins on the PGA Tour, but the super talented South Carolinian won the 2016 U.S. Open and finished the 2016 Masters in fourth place, one year after tying for sixth place.
In seven appearances at the Masters, DJ has one top five finish, two top 10 finishes, and three top 25 finishes. Make no mistake bout it, Johnson has the length off the tee – and the short game – to win the 2017 Masters.
The Value Pick To Win The Masters: Zach Johnson 60/1
Zach Johnson is a fine golfer even if he doesn’t quite get the national media attention that some of the other high-profile golfers get. Johnson only had one PGA Tour win to his credit when he shook up the golfing universe by winning the 2007 Masters to earn his first major title in unexpectedly chilly conditions no less.
Now, the Iowan is a Tour fixture, having recorded nine additional PGA Tour wins before bagging The Open Championship in 2015 in a playoff to become just the sixth player ever to win at both Augusta National and St. Andrews.
The Longshot Pick To Win The Masters: Tiger Woods 100/1
I know Tiger Woods has had numerous back issues and hasn’t played much competitive golf over the last two years. Woods has also skipped two of the last three Masters events, including last year’s, though he does has a trio of fourth place finishes at the Masters since 2010.

Since 2001, Woods has three wins at the Masters, a pair of second-place finishes, one third-place finish, the aforementioned trio of fourth place finishes and one sixth-place finish.
If you’re looking for a long shot selection that offers real value, look no further than at the incomparable Tiger Woods. Besides, after seeing Roger Federer pull off the impossible at the 2017 Australian Open, I see no reason why Tiger can’t turn back the hands of time at the 2017 Masters.
