2012 Masters Odds: Tiger Woods Favored To Win 5th Green Jacket At Augusta

Perhaps the most anticipated week in golf is here, as the 2012 Masters gets underway Thursday in Augusta, Georgia. Two weeks after snapping a long drought with a win at Bay Hill, Tiger Woods has resumed his place as the favorite to capture the green jacket this week.

Woods, who last won The Masters in 2005, is listed by Bovada as the 4/1 favorite to win his fifth green jacket and 15th major tournament title. Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson are also among the favorites.
