The 2018 Masters at Augusta National Golf Club is getting closer by the day, and the return of Tiger Woods has made a splash when it comes to finding a betting favorite.

On Monday of Masters week, following Ian Poulter's dramatic win at the Houston Open, Woods currently has 12/1 odds to win the Masters. He finished T5 in his latest start at Bay Hill. Just above him are the betting favorites of Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas all at 10/1, according to Golfodds.com. Rory McIlroy and Justin Rose are tied with Tiger at 12/1.

Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson, who both won recently on Tour, are tied at 16/1 along with Rickie Fowler. Defending champion Sergio Garcia's odds have fallen to 30/1.

Four of Woods's 14 major titles have come at Augusta. He won his first major of his career there in 1997, and then won three more green jackets in 2001, 2002 and 2005.

The Masters is April 5-8, 2018, at Augusta National in Augusta, Ga.

Tiger Woods has won four Masters titles in his career.
