Like Spring, The Masters is fast approaching, and players, fans and bettors are already gearing up for a thrilling event. 

With the tournament steadily approaching on April 11, and a handful of tournaments already completed in 2019, we're starting to see our first significant shift in odds to win The Masters. 

Back in December, when odds were freshly posted, the two favorites were two previous winners of The Masters, Jordan Spieth, and Tiger Woods, both listed at +950 to win, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Fast forward to Feb. 25. and there is a shift in the leaderboard. The updated odds now have three new names at the top in Rory McIlroy (+950), Dustin Johnson (+1100) and Justin Thomas (+1200). Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth now sit at +1300 and +1500, respectively. All betting information is via  FanDuel Sportsbook.

The odds are clearly indicative of the play we have seen on the course in 2019 thus far. McIlroy has four top-10 finishes in 2019. Johnson has three top-10 finishes and is coming off a win at the WGC Mexico Championship. Thomas has five top-10 finishes on the season, including a second-place finish at the Genesis Open. Tiger, meanwhile, has been up-and-down this year, with only one Top 10 finish in four events and only five rounds (of 16) in the 60s. 

Who will don the green jacket in April? The odds have shifted in Rory's favor for now, but things could change even week between now and the start of the tournament.
