Well, this is fun.
Tiger Woods shot a third round -5 at The Masters on Saturday. He finished the day at -11, in a tie for second place with Tony Finau (who tallied an absurd -8). They both trail Italy’s Francesco Molinari at -13.
The five-under was Woods’ lowest score at the Masters since his final round in 2011.
Tiger Woods isn’t favored to win the Masters
Despite heavy public money and operator liability on him, Woods is not favored to win the Masters on Sunday. That distinction (rightfully) goes to Molinari.
DraftKings stands to pay out at least $1 million to bettors if Tiger wins the Masters, but @DKSportsbook is tempting people to take more Tiger. Just boosted odds (it’s live, so it can change) from 3/1 to 10/1 to win his fifth green jacket.

At the close of the third round, Molinari was priced at +175 on DraftKings Sportsbook in New Jersey. Woods followed at +350. Brooks Koepka, who is at -10, is listed at +650. Finau makes an interesting play at +600.
Lines will continue to shift during the evening until tee time. In-play betting will be available throughout the final round.

If you’re going to bet, do it now
If you plan to bet the Masters, please note that due to incoming severe weather, all tee times have been moved to earlier in the day.

The leaders will be paired in threes (so Molinari, Woods, and Finau will be grouped together) and will tee off at 9:20 am EST.
Expect Sunday’s Masters to be the highest rated in recent history.
