Masters odds: Tiger still favored after opening-round 70

Tiger Woods shot a 2-under 70 in the opening round at Augusta National on Thursday and remains the betting favorite heading into second-round at the Masters despite trailing the leaders by four strokes.

Tiger opened as a +350 favorite at the LVH SuperBook and is now +400 to win outright at William Hill.

Sergio Garcia (opened +4,000) and Aussie Marc Leishman (opened +30,000) share the lead after firing a pair of 6-under 66s in the opening round.

Leishman is now being dealt at +4,000 prior to second-round play. An Australian has never won the Masters.

Rory McIlroy (opened +900) shot an even-par 72, while Phil Mickelson (opened +1,000) fired a solid 71 (-1).

China’s Guan Tianlang is the youngest player in major championship history after firing a 1-over 73. The 14-year-old has +5,000 odds heading into the second round.

The weather outlook doesn’t look too good for Friday. There's a 99 percent chance of rain early in the morning with a chance of thunderstorms in the forecast until 11 a.m. ET. Winds will blow from the southwest at nine mph. The first group is scheduled to tee off at 8 a.m. ET.
