Tiger Woods is dominating the Masters betting market, and the first round leader market isn’t much different.

However, it might be the one market he’s not the most popular play or biggest liability.

According to data released by BetMGM on Tuesday, Woods is second in first-round leader liability to Sam Burns, who is making his Masters debut. At +4000, Burns has taken the fourth-most money and bets in the market.

The most money? Tiger, of course.

Woods (+5000) will make his first appearance since the PNC Championship when he played with his son, Charlie, in a scramble. Before that, he hadn’t played since the 2020 Masters after suffering serious injuries in a car accident in early 2021.

Woods started out strong in that event, firing a first-round 68. He tailed off as the rounds wore on, which wouldn’t be a surprise to see this week as he walks potentially four full rounds. When he played at the PNC Championship, he was able to ride in a cart.

The most bets as of Tuesday are on Will Zalatoris, who finished second in his debut last year. Zalatoris (+3300) tops Russell Henley (+4000) and Scottie Scheffler (+2200) as players with the most bets.

The third-biggest liability is a player who often finds himself near the top of the leaderboard after the first round at Augusta — Justin Rose. Rose (+5000) is in the top 10 in both bets and handle. Rose not only led last year’s first round, but he was also four shots clear of anyone else.

The only player in the top 20 bets with odds longer than +5000 is Cameron Young at +6600.
