Masters Odds: Lee Westwood’s Masters Odds Slashed Following Strong Play

At the start of the month of March Lee Westwood was hardly on anyone’s Masters champion radar. The 47-year old former World No. 1 has never won a major and was long considered to be past his former prime.

But, following back-to-back second place finishes, first at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and then at The Players Championship, oddsmakers have completely slashed Westwood’s price at Augusta National in April.

Westwood has finished runner-up at the Masters twice, once in 2010 and again in 2016. He’s still got to work on closing, he’s come into Sunday’s final round with the lead in both the last two events, only to lose it.

Still, bettors are rushing to the window to back Westwood in the 2021 Masters.

Masters Betting

When March kicked off just two weeks ago Lee Westwood was +11000 to win the Masters this year. Now, after he’s shown signs of being back at the top of his game in back-to-back weeks, you can get Westwood as short as +2900. The difference in implied probability between those odds is 0.9% (+11000) and 3.3% (+2900).

In that same amount of time, since the beginning of March, Westwood is far and away the most backed golfer in the entire Masters field. As of Sunday night, 30.99% of all outright wagers on the Masters have backed Westwood to win.

The second most popular pick is Jordan Spieth, backed by 8.38% of wagers. Viktor Hovland is right behind Spieth with 5.37% of the bets behind him. Dustin Johnson (3.87%) is just ahead of this week’s Players Championship winner Justin Thomas (3.51%)
