Masters 2019 betting odds.  Can Tiger Woods reach the top again? Let's hop in a time machine and head back to the US Open in 2008.

Tiger Woods has just won his 14th major title and is just 32 years of age.

How hard of a time would you have convincing people in 2008 that Tiger Woods would go the next 11 years (at least) without winning another major title?

If somebody offered up a line on that happening in 2008, the line probably would have been 100/1 or even worse.

This is exactly what has happened, however, as personal issues and injuries have derailed the career of arguably the greatest golfer in the history of the game.

In 2018, however, things finally started to click again for Tiger. He came very close to winning a couple of majors, though he did win his first title in a very long time.

Thanks to a very strong second round, Tiger has now found himself in the thick of the race at the 2019 Masters. That's the good news. The bad news? The top of the leaderboard is absolutely clogged with some of the game's best talents.

That being said - Tiger is still a co-favourite to win the tournament now, as he is currently listed at 8.00 to win. Let's take a look at the current betting odds for the top 10 players, courtesy of Bet365:

Will we see some vintage Tiger this weekend at Augusta?
