Rickie Fowler

Rickie Fowler shares the lead at the Masters with three other players, but in the eyes of bookmakers he's the man to beat heading into the weekend at Augusta National.

Fowler started the week at 20/1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, and those odds were trimmed to 15/1 after Fowler's opening-round 73. Fowler is now a 7/2 betting favorite after 36 holes, where he shares the top spot with Sergio Garcia (6/1), Thomas Pieters (9/1) and Charley Hoffman (15/1).

Jordan Spieth, who trails by four shots and was the pre-tournament betting favorite, has the lowest odds of anyone outside the four co-leaders.

Here's a look at the betting odds for several contenders heading into the third round of the season's first major:

7/2: Rickie Fowler

6/1: Sergio Garcia

13/2: Jordan Spieth

9/1: Thomas Pieters

10/1: Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm
