The European Tour is finally over. 

The PGA Tour's six fall events are finally over.

Silly season is winding down.

You know what all of that means? 2014 is right around the corner and once the calendar flips to January we aren't that far from Augusta.

So why not some mid-November Masters odds with a few bets I really like right now.

The favorite

Tiger Woods : 5-1

The other favorites

Phil Mickelson : 11-1
Rory McIlroy : 12-1
Adam Scott : 16-1 


Brandt Snedeker : 25-1
Henrik Stenson : 25-1
Justin Rose : 25-1
Jason Day : 28-1
Charl Schwartzel : 33-1
Dustin Johnson: 33-1
Lee Westwood : 33-1
Luke Donald : 33-1 

Fringe contenders

Bubba Watson : 40-1
Jason Dufner : 40-1
Keegan Bradley : 40-1
Louis Oosthuizen : 40-1
Matt Kuchar : 40-1
Sergio Garcia : 40-1

The value pick

Jordan Spieth: 66-1

Sweet mercy, you can get Jordan Spieth at 66-1 right now?! I mean, I don't think he's going to blow through Augusta and grab a green jacket but that should be no higher than 40-1. Maybe 35-1.

I also like Oosthuizen at 40-1 (he will have recovered from his injury by then) and Stenson at 25-1 (though his best finish there is T17).

I don't love Donald or Westwood at 33-1 -- those are bad bets. 

Also, Scott at 16-1 is a steal. He's going to be in the mix in every major he plays for the next few years. I have no idea why he has worse odds than McIlroy.
