Odds for Thursday four-ball matches at 2013 Presidents Cup
Tiger Woods' group and Phil Mickelson's group are both favorites to win on Thursday at the Presidents Cup.
The Day One matches are set and the US side is favored in all six of them. The Thursday play will be four-ball (you take the lowest individual score from your pairing) and all 12 golfers from each team will be competing.
A quick refresher on how these lines should be read since we don't normally do these kinds of lines in golf. If a pairing is -155 to win that means you have to bet $155 on them to win $100. If a pairing is +200 to win that means you only have to bet $100 to win $200.
OK, let's jump in.
International: Graham DeLaet and Jason Day (+135)
Thoughts: This is great value on the International Team. Snedeker and Mahan don't exactly scream "great at match play" and Day is a killer.
International: Adam Scott and Hideki Matsuyama (-105)
Thoughts: I'm not real sure why Simpson and Haas are favored here. I'd take Scott on his own over both of them.
International: Charl Schwartzel and Louis Oosthuizen (+140)
Thoughts: You knew Bradley and Mickelson were going to be heavy favorites but you didn't expect them to be this heavy of a favorite over Schwartzel and Oosthuizen.
and Jordan Spieth (-150)
International: Ernie Els and Brendon de Jonge (+130)
Thoughts: Do you think when Jordan Spieth started his season in January he thought he'd be a favorite over Ernie Els in the Presidents Cup in October?
International: Angel Cabrera and Marc Leishman (+165)
Thoughts: More good value here. Woods and Kuchar should win handily -- they played with and absolutely smoked Stricker and Spieth in a practice round on Wednesday -- but who wants to go against Cabrera? Not me.
International: Branden Grace and Richard Sterne (+130)
Thoughts: Dufner and Johnson is an odd pairing to me -- like Couples ran out of people and had to put the last two guys he had together in a match. I like them to win but I'm more intrigued to see how they interact.
