Masters Predictions 2012: Adam Scott and More Players with Realistic Odds to Win

Alex Kay@AlexPKayCorrespondent IApril 4, 2012

The 2012 Masters are just one day away, and there is no better time for gamblers to get their Augusta action in.

It’s fortunate that Tiger Woods finally won a PGA Tour event recently, as he has—for some inexplicable reason that has to do with public perception—become a 9/2 favorite to don the green jacket.

Rory McIlroy isn’t far behind, with the Vegas bookmakers giving him 6/1 odds to win the event.

While these two golfers may be extremely popular, their odds of victory aren’t even close to what Vegas is offering, so let’s take a look at some players who have just a good a shot and pay much better.

 

Adam Scott – 28/1

Scott nearly won the 2011 version of this tournament, and looked like he was going to until Charl Schwartzel nailed four birdies in a row and ripped the rug out from underneath the competition.

This Australian has really come on lately and is simply due to win his first major in the near future.  With his odds at a juicy 28-to-1, it’s not a bad idea to wager him to win the 2012 Masters.

 

Lee Westwood – 20/1

Westwood is an extremely good golfer, and it’s wild to think he has yet to capture a major since turning professional in 1993.

The Englishman is 38 years old and bound to eventually win a big tournament, so why not this one at Augusta—a place he has finished second at before?

He’s No. 3 in the world for a reason, and has the talent to get it done.
