Tiger Woods is the heavy +350 favorite for The Masters at BroburySports.com, but that’s just a small part of the huge story brewing.
Make BroburySports.com your home for Masters action all the way through the Sunday final-pairings. We’ll have odds-to-win and matchups updated every day, so there’s no reason to go anywhere else.
Woods hasn’t won this event since 2005, finishing third, second, second and sixth the last four years. He’s won the ‘Green Jacket’ four times in his career.
The Masters is almost like reality television this week. Everyone wants to see Woods perform for the first time since his scandal broke. If we could have Jerry Springer as his caddy, it would be even better.
One item in Woods’ favor is the atmosphere at Augusta. They don’t tolerate any misbehavior by the patrons and thus heckling should be non-existent. Woods has been known to be machine-like on the course, but even he isn’t immune to the pressure this week.
Woods’ props bets are the hot item this week. You can wager on how many birdies he’ll have in round one with 4-5 the favorite (+130).
The favorite score for his first round is 69-70 (+200) and his favorite overall finishing position is 1st-5th (-150).
You can also get Tiger matchup odds versus Phil Mickelson (+130) and Ernie Els (+140)
Looking at the other golfers, Mickelson (+1000) is second in the odds, but it should probably be the hotter Ernie Els (+1200). If you’re looking for the big names of Sergio Garcia and Vijay Singh below, note they’re long shots at +6000 and +8000 respectively.
A long shot could be the right person to back this week. Angel Cabrera, Trevor Immelman, and Zach Johnson are the last three winners. Another one might come through and steal the spotlight right from Woods (probably not a bad thing).
