Masters Golf Tournament 2011 Odds: Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood Favored

Our friends at Bodog.com have odds on the 2011 Masters Tournament up and ready, with defending champ Phil Mickelson favored to win his second-straight green jacket by 6/1 odds. Tiger Woods is close behind at 10/1, with world No. 2 Lee Westwood sitting at 14/1.

The rest of the top 10 is rounded out by Nick Watney (16/1); world No. 1 Martin Kaymer and Dustin Johnson (20/1); Luke Donald, Paul Casey, and Rory McIlroy (25/1); and Padraig Harrington, Hunter Mahan, and former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets golfer Matt Kuchar (28/1). That's actually a top 12 if you're counting.

Former Georgia Bulldogs star Bubba Watson checks in close behind at 33/1 odds to win the tournament. Georgia Tech's Stewart Cink is a 100/1 longshot.

Mickelson's odds are much too small for practical wagering -- they'll certainly lure in plenty of oh-he-won-it-last-year bets. But the thing is, Mickelson looked very good in rallying to win last week's Shell Houston Open, his first win since the 2010 Masters. Think he can get a streak going both in this season and at this course?
