Tiger Woods is the favorite to win Tour Championship, $10 million
Tiger Woods is the favorite for the year's final tournament but there are some other interesting odds as well.
The final tournament of the PGA Tour season is finally on deck and you aren't going to believe who the favorite is. I mean it this time, you really won't believe who the odds-on betting favorite is to win in East Lake this week.
Oh, actually you probably will.
It's Tiger Woods at 5-1.
Here are the rest of the odds for golfers at the year's final tournament:
Tiger Woods: 5-1
Phil Mickelson : 14-1
Henrik Stenson : 16-1
Justin Rose : 16-1
Jim Furyk : 18-1
Zach Johnson : 18-1
Hunter Mahan : 20-1
Matt Kuchar : 20-1
Jason Day : 20-1
Brandt Snedeker : 20-1
Steve Stricker : 20-1
In the mix
Jason Dufner : 25-1
Keegan Bradley : 28-1
Charl Schwartzel : 28-1
Jordan Spieth: 28-1
Nick Watney : 33-1
Bill Haas : 33-1
The reason so many golfers have such low odds is that there are only 30 golfers playing in the tournament.
The worst odds are Brendon De Jonge (80-1), Boo Weekley (125-1), and DA Points (150-1). Those guys have little chance of winning because of how many golfers at the top of the heap have to finish low. For example: if Brendon De Jonge wins he has to have Tiger, Brandt Snedeker, and Phil Mickelson finish near the bottom -- among other scenarios that have to take place.
The whole thing is a bit complicated but I really like Zach Johnson at 18-1. He's currently in fourth place and coming off a big win at the BMW Championship. He's the only golfer in the top five with odds that low. I also like Stricker at 20-1.
