Bubba Watson torched the field on Friday to the tune of a 68 that included a five-hole birdie streak on the second nine.

As a result he's now the favorite to win the 78th Masters.

He has some big names hot on his heels, though.


Bubba Watson: 7-4

Other favorites

Adam Scott: 9-2
Jordan Spieth: 10-1

Fringe favorites

John Senden: 16-1
Jimmy Walker: 18-1
Thomas Bjorn: 25-1
Matt Kuchar: 25-1
Jim Furyk: 25-1
Lee Westwood: 33-1
Jonas Blixt: 33-1

Everyone else

Brandt Snedeker: 40-1
Fred Couples: 40-1
Henrik Stenson: 50-1
Jamie Donaldson: 50-1
Louis Oosthuizen: 50-1
Rory McIlroy: 80-1

That last one is embarrassing. If Rory McIlroy wins this tournament I will eat a Nike polo and put it on YouTube.

My life on the line I'd go with Scott. It's tough to repeat but he's so steady and Friday might have been his "bad day" for the week.

History says one of these guys will win it: Bubba, Senden, Bjorn, Furyk, Blixt, Couples, Walker, Donaldson, Gallacher, Henley, Scott, Spieth, and Streelman.

Those are the only guys within six of the lead (winner in 76 of 77 Masters has been within six at 36-hole mark) and who shot even or better in the second round (23 of last 24 winners have been even or better in round two).

Wager accordingly.
