Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson :: Golf has returned, so obviously that implies betting has made a triumphant rebound too. This current end of the week’s The Match: Champions for Charity group occasion including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning has multitudinous prop wagers you can bet on in front of the golf Sunday at 3 p.m.
The vast majority of these props are – like most – crazy, however some of them are really fascinating. The group of Woods and Manning remains the substantial most loved over Mickelson and Brady, which is obvious. Yet, jump somewhat more profound, and you can locate a some decent incentive in a couple of these by means of William Hill Sportsbook.
Brady will be the X-factor here. I suspect Manning’s game will be far sharper than Brady’s since, you know, he’s retired, and I don’t expect much from Mickelson and Woods since they haven’t played competitively in months (and weren’t exactly playing stellar golf when they were playing). Brady is an unknown, though. If he’s better than Manning, then there’s value in that +175 number. If not, then Woods and Manning should win, especially with the alternate-shot format on the back nine on Sunday.
First team to go 1 up
Mickelson/Brady is definitely the play here. Tiger always takes a bit to get warmed up and sorted out. It’s easy to envision Mickelson starting hot, talking buckets of trash and fading late. For whatever it’s worth, Mickelson was the first to go 1 up in their match back in November 2018.
One team wins 3 holes in a row
I just cannot envision this happening. It’s almost certainly not going to happen on the back nine in the alternate-shot format unless one of the quarterbacks just completely loses their game, which means it could only feasibly happen on the front nine. So you have to win three holes in a row over the first nine after not having played in two months. I’m not seeing it.
Will there be extra holes?
In the first two matches similar to this one — Woods-Mickelson in 2018 and the TaylorMade match last weekend — both have gone to extra holes. However, it’s statistically even more unlikely for that to happen here, especially with the volatility of the quarterbacks on the back nine and the alternate-shot format. So I think “no” at -340 is the right call.
