The 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open features one of the more star-studded fields of the early PGA Tour season and as a result, no player is favored well above the others.
Jason Dufner and Rickie Fowler enter the tournament as the favorites as both are 14/1 to win, according to the latest odds from Bovada. Dufner and Fowler, however, are just two of a number of players with odds 30/1 or better. Following the two favorites, Brandt Snedeker and Bubba Watson are tied for the next best odds at 16/1 with Nick Watney checking in just behind them at 18/1.
Phil Mickelson and Martin Kaymer are tied for the sixth best odds as both players are currently 22/1. There is a bit of a gap following Mickelson and Kaymer with Charles Howell III having the next best odds at 28/1. Both Bo Van Pelt and Robert Garrigus check in at 30/1.
Vijay Singh could be a sleeper pick this week as he's had success at the TPC Scottsdale. Singh, is currently a 66/1 favorite, won at the TPC Schottsdale in 1995 and again in 2003. Other notable names with lower odds include Geoff Ogilvy at 80/1 and Justin Leonard at 125/1.
While Dufner and Fowler are the favorites to win, it's Dufner, Snedeker and Watney who are the favorites to lead after the first round. All three are 20/1 to hold the first round lead while Watson and Fowler are 22/1. Watson, Whatney, Fowler and Dufner are all heavily favored to make the cut at -600. Mickelson is a bit less likely to make the cut, going off at -450.
