There’s a new name atop the Masters betting sheet following the WGC-Mexico Championship.
Dustin Johnson’s one-shot win in Mexico City didn’t move him up in the world rankings, considering he started the week at No. 1. But his second victory in as many starts did allow him to supplant Jordan Spieth as the top favorite to win the season’s first major.
Johnson started the week at 8/1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, but his odds were trimmed to 6/1 after his fourth career WGC victory. Spieth, who tied for 12th, maintained his 13/2 odds.
While Johnson failed to crack the top 10 in his first five trips to Augusta National, he finished T-6 there in 2015 and T-4 last year.
Other moves included Jon Rahm, who went from 40/1 to 25/1 after his T-3 finish, and Thomas Pieters, who fell from 60/1 to 50/1 after finishing T-5. Here’s a look at the betting landscape, with the Masters now just five weeks away:
