He’s joined by compatriot Jason Day as two of the top favourites who are pegged to wear the green jacket in 2014 along with Phil Mickelson and Rory Mcilroy.

Recent form has confirmed why t these names are the favourites. McIlroy was a runner-up at the Honda Classic; Scott was third at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.Day won the Match Play Championship and Mickelson is a three-time Masters champion.

To Win US Masters 2014 Betting Odds
Adam Scott (10.00)
Rory Mcilroy (11.00)
Jason Day (14.00)
Phil Mickelson (15.00)
Sergio Garcia (21.00)
Matt Kuchar (23.00)
Dustin Johnson (26.00)
Henrik Stenson (29.00)
Bubba Watson (29.00)
Zach Johnson (31.00)

The most curious omission from the list is Tiger Woods, who will miss the tournament because of a back injury. Without Woods, this year’s race has been dubbed as the most open in recent memory and the betting lines reflect that.

Other Australians playing in the field are Marc Leishman, Matt Jones, John Senden, Steven Bowditch and Oliver Goss.

Previous back-to-back Masters champions are Jack Nicklaus (1965 and 1966); Nick Faldo (1989 and 1990) and Tiger Woods (2001 and 2002) and recent titlists include Bubba Watson (2012), Charl Schwartzel (2011), Phil Mickelson (2010) and Angel Cabrera (2009).
