Las Vegas sports books are starting to adjust Dustin Johnson’s odds to win the Masters based on news that the tournament favorite injured his back Wednesday.

Westgate oddsmaker Jeff Sherman has adjusted the odds to make Johnson, Rory Mcilroy and Jordan Spieth tri-favorites at 7-1. Westgate had Johnson alone at 11-2 before the injury.

Johnson, the world's top-ranked player, remained 11-2 at the South Point sports book, but oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro took Johnson off board on head-to-head prop bets.

Johnson injured his back falling down stairs at his Augusta rental home, according to David Winkle of Hambric Sports, Johnson’s agent.

Winkle says Johnson landed hard on his lower back and is resting with discomfort. Winkle told ESPN that the injury is muscular in nature, and Johnson is taking anti-inflammatories and icing the injury.

Winkle says Johnson hopes to play when the Masters starts on Thursday. Johnson’s tee time is 2:03 Eastern.
