Masters odds: DJ surpasses Spieth as favorite

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:

6/1: Dustin Johnson

13/2: Jordan Spieth

10/1: Rory McIlroy

12/1: Jason Day

15/1: Hideki Matsuyama

20/1: Justin Rose

25/1: Phil Mickelson, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Henrik Stenson, Rickie Fowler

30/1: Adam Scott, Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia

40/1: Brandt Snedeker, Patrick Reed

50/1: Louis Oosthuizen, Paul Casey, Matt Kuchar, Thomas Pieters

80/1: Branden Grace, Brooks Koepka, Danny Willett, Zach Johnson, Charl Schwartzel, Jimmy Walker, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Daniel Berger, Gary Woodland, Tyrrell Hatton

100/1: Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, J.B. Holmes, Emiliano Grillo, Russell Knox, Alex Noren
