Betting Odds For The 2010 Players Championship

Are you kidding me? After mailing in a performance last week at Quail Hollow, Tiger Woods is the bettors favorite to win the Players Championship at 7/1. They are speculating, I suppose, that last week’s dismal results were an aberration and not a trend. I’m not so sure.

It’s no surprise, however, that Phil is everyone’s second choice at 8/1. He’s followed by a list of the usual suspects: Jim Furyk (20/1), Ernie Els (22/1), Rory McIlroy (22/1), Ian Poulter

< Lee Westwood and Padraig Harrington at (25/1) and Paul Casey, Anthony Kim, Camilo Villegas, and KJ Choi at 33/1.

I think the history of the Players, however, favors someone coming from out of the pack. Take a look at the last ten year’s worth of winners: Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, Stephen Ames, Fred Funk Adam Scott, Davis Love, Craig Perks, Tiger Woods, Hal Sutton and David Duval. Phil, Tiger and Double D surely were favorites in their years, but the others had to be surprises.

  1. Tiger is going to get eaten alive this week at The Players.  The course is way too tough for him to handle at this particular point in time.

  2. Tiger is way rattled.  At some point he may channel it into 2-3 good rounds in a row.  He may be ticked from last Friday and may come back on fire- I don’t think there is any way of knowing.

    I, personally, would want Phil even money over Tiger, but I also don’t think that is stupid money to bet on Tiger. 

    Stupid money would be betting on him in a real major.

    What I think would be entertaining is a Phil/Tiger in the last group on a Sunday either this weekend or for the Memorial.  Phil gets under Tiger’s skin by existing – and right now, I am not sure you can rattle Phil – with every Philtacular shot, Tiger would try and one up and just blow up like an atom bomb.

    However, if Tiger fails to make the cut this weekend – my prediction is to forget about what he has committed to, and forget about the majors.  He will have some “injury” which will take him out for the rest of 2010.
