Las Vegas reveal list of favourites for the 2017 Masters

The Masters is back on our screens in just 3 weeks. Las Vegas have recently released a spread that gives you some idea of the the general population’s betting habits.

The Masters comes at such an interesting time of year for professional golfers. The landscape is tumultuous to say the least; some players are halfway through their season, others are making a slow return. This year sees so many players in form. Surely this is the first time in decades that the defending Masters Champions isn’t in the top 25. Such is the poor form of Danny Willett. Other notables include Tiger Woods at 125/1 (an enormous change); Smylie Kaufman – who booked the final tee time at last year’s tournament – at 150/1; and the 2016 high amateur, Bryson DeChambeau, on 150/1. See the gallery of top pick below.

Based on hearsay, and a marginally analytical approach to the current golf world, here are our four picks for the Masters: Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson and John Rahm. Who makes the roster?
