2013 Masters odds: Tiger Woods still favored after 2-stroke penalty

Mike Ehrmann

A five-shot deficit with 36 holes to play is not enough to knock Tiger from favored status.

On what may be the most controversial day in Masters history, Tiger Woods will attempt to play his way back to the top of the leaderboard, trailing Jason Day by 5 shots. Tiger left the course last night trailing by only three shots, but an overnight debate on an questionable drop at No. 15 resulted in a two-stroke penalty for the No. 1 player in the world.

But even with the two-shot ding, Tiger remains the favorite to win the green jacket on Sunday afternoon. According to Bovada, Woods is now a 4/1 favorite, edging out leader Jason Day, who is 11/2. Brandt Snedeker, Rory McIlroy, and Adam Scott round out the favored top 5. Five shots is certainly not an insurmountable lead, but it's a significant margin for any other player. With 36 holes to play, however, it's not enough to knock Tiger out of favored status.

Here are the updated Saturday odds from Bovada:

Tiger Woods 4/1
Jason Day 11/2
Brandt Snedeker 8/1
