That puts him in sixth favourite within the market, behind the who’s who of the golfing world.
Dustin Johnson is the current 5/1 favourite, closely followed by Justin Thomas (6/1) and Xander Schauffele (12/1).
Jon Rahm (14/1) and pre-tournament favourite Bryson DeChambeau (16/1) are the only other contenders ahead of Casey in the betting.
Defending champion Tiger Woods has also been cut from 45/1 into 20/1 following his slick opening round.
Casey was 55/1 to end up as leader after the first round. Now, bookies are offering just 13/8.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Paul Casey has been extremely popular with punters following his fast start, attracting 7% of all bets since he finished yesterday.
“Only the five biggest names in golf are now ahead of him in the betting, in what would be a miraculous 66/1 Masters win for a number of punters.”
