We have an interesting development on the gambling side of things when it comes to the 2014 Masters.

As of last week Bovada had Rory McIlroy as the 7-1 favorite with Adam Scott at 9-1. Both have been pulled back a bit, though, and are the co-favorites as of Monday afternoon.

I talked to a spokesperson for Bovada who said McIlroy wasn't seeing much action at 7-1 so he was pulled back a little back to his current 10-1 odds.

Here's a look (last week's odds in parentheses):


Rory McIlroy: 10-1 (7-1)
Adam Scott: 10-1 (9-1) 

Other favorites

Phil Mickelson: 12-1 (12-1)
Jason Day: 14-1 (16-1)
Matt Kuchar: 18-1 (25-1)
Sergio Garcia: 20-1 (33-1) 

Fringe favorites

Dustin Johnson: 22-1 (16-1)
Henrik Stenson: 22-1 (20-1)
Bubba Watson: 25-1 (20-1)
Justin Rose: 28-1 (25-1)
Zach Johnson: 30-1 (25-1)

Everyone else

Brandt Snedeker: 33-1 (33-1)
Keegan Bradley: 33-1 (33-1)
Charl Schwartzel: 35-1 (33-1)
Hunter Mahan: 40-1 (40-1)
Jason Dufner: 40-1 (50-1)
Jordan Spieth: 40-1 (28-1)
Lee Westwood: 40-1 (40-1)

Hope you got Sergio at 33-1 before he went shooting up the board after a solid Houston Open. On the flip side I hope you waited on Spieth. he was 28-1 last week but is now 40-1 just seven days later.

I love Scott and McIlroy equally as the favorites. I don't know if either will win but I think both will be in a position to do so and when you have golf-like odds which are by nature skittish, that's all you can ask for.
