2012 Masters Odds: Rory McIlroy Favored To Win Tournament

Entering the third round of the 2012 Masters, 52-year-old Fred Couples and Jason Dufner share the lead at 5-under, but are not the oddsmakers' favorites to win the tournmanet despite their perch atop the leaderboard. Via @RJinVegas and @GolfOdds:

The 52-year-old Couples, a fan favorite, falls behind some stiff competition. McIrloy is one of the game's up-and-comers, with a recent U.S. Open championship to his name. Westwood, a perennial bridesmaid, is bound to win a major sooner or later. Dufner, the runner-up at the 2011 PGA Championship, is even garnering more favor currently with oddsmakers than Couples.

Tiger Woods, eight back of the leaders, is only listed at 40-1 because his name is Tiger Woods.
