Bettors are buying the Jordan Spieth rebound in a big way.

Spieth entered The Masters as one of the top three favorites at most books and he's now the top liability for FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings for a number of bets.

He also is getting more than 50 percent of the total handle at PointsBet for the outright tournament winner.

At FanDuel, Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson are the co-favorites at +950.

BetRivers also noted a surge in Spieth support.

Spieth, who won the 2015 Masters, has the third-shortest odds (+1100) to win with the largest percentage of the outright winning handle (14 percent) and outright winning bets (8 percent).

Spieth surged up the board at most books following a win at the Texas Open last week. FanDuel said Wednesday he is the top individual bet liability for the book in these markets:

--Outright Winner

--Top 5 finish

--Top 10 finish

--First-round leader

Spieth (+250) has been pushed in the "Top 5 Finisher" market with 13 percent of the bet count and 16 percent of the handle. Justin Thomas (+250) is second with 9 percent of the bet count and 15 percent of the handle.

Brooks Koepka (+245) leads the bet count in the "To Miss the Cut" market with 15 percent of bets followed by Bryson DeChambeau (+460) with 10 percent of the bets.
