The oddsmakers at Bodog Life have—to no one’ surprise—established Tiger Woods as a 3/2 favorite to win the US Open at Torrey Pines. A month ago, he was a 5/4 favorite. Phil Mickelson, in second, has been upgraded form a 10/1 to an 8/1.
Padraig Harrington, Jim Furyk and Ernie Els round out the top five, but I wouldn’t put my money on any of them. None are playing particularly well.
It’s interesting to note that twenty-something players have won eight tournaments this year, including Trevor Immelman at the Masters. Given the often wild results at the US Open, it may be time for another young up and coming player to take the trophy.
For those not in the know, odds are read by looking at the second number first. So, a bet of 2 on Tiger pays 3.
