2012 Masters Odds: Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood Favorites To Win Tournament

Saturday is "moving day" at the Masters, and 61 golfers will be looking to catch Fred Couples and Jason Dufner, tied atop the leaderboard at 5-under entering the third round at Augusta.

Couples and Dufner being in the final pairing on Saturday has not made them favorites to win the tournament, however. Via @RJinVegas and @GolfOdds:

The 52-year-old Couples falls behind some stiff competition. McIrloy is one of the game's up-and-comers, with most fans remembering his dominant U.S. Open performance last year outside Washington, D.C. Westwood, a perennial bridesmaid, is bound to win a major sooner or later. Dufner, the runner-up at the 2011 PGA Championship, is even garnering more favor currently with oddsmakers than Couples. Tiger Woods, eight back of the leaders, is only listed at 40-1 because his name is Tiger Woods.
