The countdown to the 2018 Masters has officially begun, and according to Las Vegas, Jordan Spieth will once again be the man to beat next spring.
Hours after Justin Thomas lifted the Wanamaker Trophy at Quail Hollow Club, the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook published betting odds for the Masters, which kicks off in a mere 234 days. While odds are sure to shift in the coming months, Spieth starts out as a 7/1 favorite, followed closely by Dustin Johnson (8/1) and Rory McIlroy (10/1).
Defending champ Sergio Garcia is among a quartet of players at 30/1, while four-time Masters champ Tiger Woods headlines the group listed at 100/1. Woods has not played competitively since withdrawing from the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in February, and he has played the Masters only once since 2013.
