Tiger Woods finished tied for 13th with nine other golfers through Round 1 at the Masters. What are his odds of winning heading into Friday's action?

After entering the opening round of the Masters as the front-runner to take home the green jacket, Tiger Woods remains the favorite to win it all. He shot a 2-under 70 on Thursday and now sits in a 10-way tie for 13th place.

Woods is currently a 3/1 favorite to capture his fifth title at Augusta, according to Bovada. His last win here dates back to 2005, and he hasn't captured a major win since the 2008 U.S. Open. His play this year, though, has the oddsmakers confident in his chances.

Dustin Johnson is right behind Woods with 7/1 odds to win. The 28-year-old holds nine PGA Tour wins under his belt, but he's yet to win a major. After shooting a 5-under 67, he sits just one stroke behind Marc Leishman and Sergio Garcia, the current leaders at Augusta.

Garcia's odds are going at 9/1 right now. Leishman is well behind with 40/1 odds. He failed to make the cut at the Masters in his only previous appearance.

Former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Matt Kuchar has 10/1 odds after finishing with a 4-under 68. Bubba Watson, last year's champion, is sitting with 200/1 odds. His opening round disappointed all the Georgia fans in the crowd, as he shot a 3-over 75.
