It's all change in the betting following the first round of The Masters, with guys like Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth's odds tightening and others fading out in the betting.

For those of you who resisted the urge to splurge pre-tournament. here are five of the best bets out there following the first round.

The Five Best Bets After Round One Of The 2016 US Masters

Jason Day (Level par) 10/1

Jason Day now 10/1 from 13/2.

As I outlined in my original betting tips for the 2016 Masters, don't back the favourites pre-tournament; their odds do go out.  And so they have for Jason Day who has gone from 13/2 to 10/1.  Yes he was -5 at one point in his first round and the wheels came off on the closing holes, but the Aussie is by no means out of this.  The very fact he got it to -5 on the more difficult front nine, shows he's dangerous.

Brandt Snedeker (-1) 50/1

Sneds has come close twice at Augusta but whatever scar tissue remains certainly didn't seem to bother him in round one.  If the organisers follow through and speed up the greens as expected Sneds has a real chance.  Having said that he'll know that missed chances on 13 and 15 in round one would have seen him even higher up the leaderboard.  Over the course of four rounds though he'll make more than he'll leave behind. Out to 50/1 now.

Henrik Stenson (Level par) 40/1

Stenson is now pretty much double his pre-tournament odds after an opening round of level in windy conditions and is still right in there at level par.  Brings form, experience and is the kind of guy who will guts it out in the windy conditions. Five birdies in round one.

Phil Mickelson (Level Par) 28/1

Came into the tournament with real enthusiasm and but had a mare in round one.  Now out at 28/1, and still within touch on level par, it can only get better. Nobody knows the place like Lefty.  Could have a big say in the outcome.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat (Level par) 300/1

Kiradech was +4 after eight holes of his first round in tough conditions and finished level par.  A tidy front nine today could see the Thai work his way up into the place positions. An fun each way look at those odds.
