AUGUSTA, Ga. – As he heads into the final round of the Masters equipped with a two-shot lead, Francesco Molinari is the new betting favorite to slip into the green jacket.

Molinari won his first major last summer at The Open, and he was listed at 20/1 by the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook to win before play began this week. Those odds fell to 7/1 after Molinari grabbed a share of the second-round lead, and he’s now a 7/4 favorite with one round to go. Tiger Woods, who was the 6/1 favorite after two rounds, is now listed behind only Molinari at 3/1.
