From the desk of Kinda Mind Blowing But Not Really: the betting odds for winning the Masters have been released, and you know who is the projected favorite, at 3 to 1. Devil Ball Golf cites British bookmaker William Hill, who set Tigers odds at 4 to 1. Which is amazing, since the last time Tiger Woods saw someone else swing a golf club, it was reportedly being aimed at his face.

It’s not that big of a surprise. People will throw money at his name if he has a broken arm, so it makes sense for the sportsbooks to hedge their risk, seeing as more people will probably bet on Tiger Woods than all the other golfers combined, even at such a horrible price. But the average golf fan won’t recognize the value of Zach Johnson at 40 to 1, or Retief Goosen at 33 to 1. Even Phil Mickelson, at 7 to 1, makes more sense. But even Lefty doesn’t make us care about golf the way Tiger does. Partly because Phil hasn’t conclusively banged droves of women.

The Masters “Tuh-na-mint” starts April 8th. A complete list of Bodog’s odds are after the jump.
