The Second Round of the Masters is in the books and there are some interesting names atop the leaderboard after another day of blustery conditions at Augusta National.

Charley Hoffman, who started the day at 13/2 after opening 150/1, was unable to keep up his torrid pace after Day 1, shooting a three-over 75 to sit at 4-under for the tournament. Hoffman is still leading, but the fall back has resulted in his odds dropping to 15/1 and has him in a four-way tie for first, which includes players young and old looking to capture not only their first Green Jacket, but also their first major championship.

Hoffman is joined at the top of the leaderboard by Rickie Fowler, Thomas Pieters and who many call "The best golfer to never win a major" Sergio Garcia.

It was Fowler who had the round of the day at five-under par and is now the 7/2 favorite to claim the Green Jacket, according to the Westgate LV Superbook. The 28-year-old is has been playing the best golf of those among the leaders, finishing no worse than 16th in his last five tournaments, with three top-four finishes and a win at The Honda Classic.

Fowler will be paired with 22-year-old Thomas Pieters, who shot a four-under 68 on Friday. The rookie from Belgium, who is participating  in his first Masters, is now 9/1 to win the tournament after opening at 200/1 and starting the day at 40/1.

That brings us to "El Nino" himself. Garcia has us all wondering, is this finally his year? Will the long wait for a major championship come to an end? Garcia will be in the final group with Hoffman on Moving Day and the Superbook has him as the second favorite on the board at 6/1 after his three-under 69 Second round.

Other players with notable odds are Jordan Spieth, who is listed as the third favorite at 13/2 sits four shots back at Even par, while Rory McIlroy (+1) and Justin Rose (-1) are on the board at 10/1.
