Moving Day at the 2017 edition of the Masters lived up to its billing with several big-name players marching up the leaderboard on Saturday and that means we have a new favorite heading into the Final Round.

Justin Rose, who began the Third Round one-stroke under par and at 10/1 according to the Westgate LV Superbook, had the round of the day, shooting a five-under 67 to become the co-leader and the 5/2 favorite to win the Green Jacket heading into Sunday. The 36-year-old Englishman is looking to win his second major and first Masters. His best finish at Augusta National was back in 2015 when he placed second.

Joining Rose at the top of the leaderboard is another veteran player searching for not only his first Green Jacket, but his first major championship, Sergio Garcia. The 37-year-old Garcia, who entered the day as one of the leaders and was on the board at 6/1, posted a solid two-under 70 and is now 9/2 to win the tournament.

Another big name that was on the move Saturday was 2015 Masters Champion Jordan Spieth. The 22-year-old Spieth shot a very impressive four-under 68 to sit just two shots off the pace and is the second favorite to win his second Green Jacket at 3/1.

Rickie Fowler is just one shot behind the leaders at five-under par for the tournament and is 4/1 to win.

Other players who made moves into contention on Saturday were Ryan Moore (15/1), Adam Scott (15/1), Charl Schwartzel (40/1) and Lee Westwood (60/1).

The other two co-leaders heading into Saturday, Charley Hoffman and Thomas Pieters had a tough round. Hoffman, who at one point was seven-under par, collapsed down the stretch, but isn’t out of it at -4 and is on the board at 25/1. Pieters meanwhile, shot a three-over 75 and is currently -1 and 80/1.
