US Masters Betting – Mickelson Hits Form At Perfect Time (Apr 7-10)
US Masters betting at Pinnacle Sports has Phil Mickelson as the 7.990* favourite after he made the perfect preparation for defending his title, by winning last weekend's Shell Houston Open.

Phil Mickelson put in a near faultless performance at Augusta in 2010 to gain his third US Masters title in seven years, and fourth major victory. However, it has taken Lefty almost a year to rediscover that form, with no further tournament success until last weekend at the Shell Houston Open where he won by three shots from Scott Verplank, making a strong statement of intent ahead of his title defence. The odds to win the US Masters at Pinnacle Sports reacted by pushing Mickelson in to the 7.990* favourite ahead of Tiger Woods.
Woods is enduring a barren spell even longer than Mickelson experienced, with his last tournament success at the Australian Masters in 2009, just before his personal and professional life crumbled amid allegations of ex-marital indiscretions.
Any bettors that have been expecting Tiger to bounce back will have had their nerve and pockets severely tested. He has falled to regain any sort of consistency, and has fallen to number seven in the world, with Mickelson now ranked above him (no.5) for the first time since 1997. Despite all this, Woods is the 11.950* second favourite at Pinnacle Sports, largely because he has the US Masters four times, and hasn't been out of the top ten since 2004.
Though Woods and Mickelson will undoubtedly hog all the attention, Martin Kaymer arguably has the strongest claims. The 26 year old German is the world number one, and won the last major, the US PGA Championship last August - showing he has the nerve for the big stage - and ended the year as top of the European Order of Merit. With odds of 18.210* Kaymer is likely to see a lot of interest.
If Lee Westwood could reproduce his form from Augusta last year, where he finished second behind Mickelson, he'd stand a great chance of ending his search for a first major. However, his season so far has been forgettable, which has seen him lose the no.1 spot to Kaymer, so the likeable Englishman has a lot to prove, but is the 15.690* third favourite at Pinnacle Sports.
