The American had a blistering opening round on Thursday and is now the strong favourite for the Green Jacket on Sunday
Former world No.1 Brooks Koepka has emerged as the clear favourite to win the Masters after his brilliant opening round at Augusta National.
The American’s odds have been cut from 28/1 to 5/1 to win the major.
Play started on Thursday and 16 per cent of all bets on the eventual winner have been placed on Koepka wearing the Green Jacket on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Dustin Johnson is second favourite at 13/2, with Bryson DeChambeau (7/1), John Rahm (12/1) and Phil Mickelson (14/1) third, fourth and fifth favourites respectively.
Fellow American Tiger Woods is also 14/1 to win the major while Rickie Fowler (16/1), Adam Scott (25/1) and Rory McIlroy (25/1) outside contenders.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “Koepka is the early standout and has put himself in a great position. That’s translated into what the public is punting, with Koepka easily the most popular.
“But, with the likes of Dustin Johnson breathing down his neck, he’ll know that there is a long way to go before thinking about a fourth major.”
