Odds To Win the 2010 Barclays

A divorce on the one hand and inconsistent play on the other hasn’t stopped Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson from sharing the lead for the oddsmakers at 12/1 for the Barclays Championship. I’m actually having a hard time figuring out the oddsmakers fascination with these two characters. Aside from Mickelson’s Masters’ victory, neither has done a thing to merit their consistent location at the top of the list.

  1. I almost think betting on Woods is the play.  It is like when you are playing roulette, and you have seven black wins in a row, at some point red had to win.  Maybe he was just trying to make sure he didn’t up his income before the divorce finalized. 

    On the other hand, I can see Phil winning too.  There are 3 more cup events, so just because he wins at the Barclays he can still blow winning the cup before it is over. 

    Does it make sense for Els to be 2.5 times worse odds than Phil? 

    The oddsmakers have been wacky with odds all year long in relation to Tiger.  At least now both he and Phil are below 10 to 1, and it should never have been better for either all year long.
