It's Bubba Watson's tournament to lose. Or so says Vegas.

Bovada has posted odds on who will win the 79th green jacket and the left-handed free-swinger stands alone atop the field as the favorite.

But he's got some stars right on his heels. A look at who the golfers to beat are on Sunday at Augusta:

The favorite

Bubba Watson: 11-4

Other favorites

Jordan Spieth: 7-2
Matt Kuchar: 4-1

Fringe favorites

Jonas Blixt: 10-1
Rickie Fowler: 12-1
Lee Westwood: 12-1

Everyone else

Miguel Angel Jimenez: 20-1
Jim Furyk: 25-1
Justin Rose: 28-1
Thomas Bjorn: 28-1
Adam Scott: 66-1

I think smart money gets put on Fowler. It feels like if this tournament was played 10 times he would win at least one of them.

Also, Scott at 66-1 is at least intriguing. He's only six back with 13 golfers between him and the leaders. That happens at least once in 66 tries, I think.
