Wandering through the 'Woods' betting options takes time, patience and a great deal of effort but having such a heavy favorite at the top of the list creates excellent value throughout the rest of the card.

Pre-tournament press conferences were in full-swing for the 2009 Masters and as the golfers fielded questions from the media, sports bettors have shifted into full-on research mode trying to dig up the gem that will lead to a win when the final putts are made Sunday afternoon.
