Rory McIlroy is the betting favorite this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and it's not a close race.

The world No. 1 headlines the field at Bay Hill, where he won in dramatic fashion two years ago. McIlroy has finished worse than 11th just once in five trips to Orlando, and coming off fifth-place finishes in each of his last two starts, he is listed as a 5/1 favorite this week according to oddsmakers at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

McIlroy's spot at the top isn't exactly surprising, but the distance between him and the competition might be: Tommy Fleetwood (14/1) is the only other player listed at lower than 20/1, with Bryson DeChambeau and Hideki Matsuyama next on the odds sheet.
