Odds For The Match 3 Curry and Manning Favored over Mickelson and Barkley

Apparently even the presence of a Hall of Famer like Phil Mickelson can’t overcome bettors’ skepticism of Charles Barkley’s swing. According to the oddsmakers at SportsBettingDime, the two are actually underdogs against amateurs Steph Curry and Peyton Manning in Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Change on Friday, Nov. 27, at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona.

The Match 3 is perhaps the ultimate in Silly Season events (although the silly season technically doesn’t exist any more). It’ll be fun to watch, but ultimately, no one gives a hoot about its final outcome.

It is, however, for a good cause. The Match 2 supported COVID relief. This edition will benefit Black colleges and universities.

The spectacle will air at 3 PM ET on TNT.

Currently, Curry and Manning are 5/6 favorites. Curry is a good player, who has finished strong in the celebrity American Century Championship.

The odds-makers at @SBD have posted a host of odds and props for the event.  The odds for Charles to make a hole-in-one (10000/1) or to hit the longest drive among the amateurs (200/1) are very long, so your best bet might be to bet on Barkley (-200) to be caught cursing on-camera.  You can also get 3/1 odds he hits a ball in the water; 4/1 odds he swings and misses on a shot; and 2/1 odds his first drive ending up in the rough.
