We have some 2014 golf odds and though they're dominated by the man who so often dominates the golf world (Tiger Woods), they're nonetheless interesting.

Here's a look, courtesy of Bovada:

Tiger Woods - total majors in 2014  

None: 1-2
One: 7-4
Two: 8-1
Three: 40-1
All four: 100-1

I think the best value in there is for him to win one. All four isn't happening and neither is three. Two could but I hate it at 8-1.

Rory McIlroy - total majors in 2014?   

None: 1/5
One: 7-2
Two: 14-1
Three: 80-1
All four: 150-1

150-1 odds on Rory McIlroy winning the slam in 2014? That has to be the worst bet in all of sports!

Phil Mickelson - total majors in 2014?

None: 1-7
One: 4-1
Two: 20-1
Three: 100-1
All four: 250-1

Did they forget an extra zero on "three" and "all four"? I like him at 4-1 to win one of them.

To a major at all in 2014?         

Tiger Woods: 3-2
Rory McIlroy: 3-1
Phil Mickelson: 7-2
Adam Scott: 7-2
Henrik Stenson: 5-1
Justin Rose: 11-2
Jason Day: 8-1
Brandt Snedeker: 8-1
Dustin Johnson: 9-1

The reason these are different for Tiger/Rory/Phil than the odds above is because for the odds above they would have to land on exactly one or exactly two. This wager is just to win at least one.

Also, I love Adam Scott at 7-2.

Here are your top five at each of the four majors:

Odds to win Masters 2014

Tiger Woods: 5-1
Rory McIlroy: 10-1
Phil Mickelson: 12-1
Adam Scott: 14-1
Henrik Stenson: 14-1

I sort of love McIlroy here and do not like Stenson at all at 14-1.

Odds to win US Open 2014

Tiger Woods: 6-1
Rory McIlroy: 14-1
Adam Scott: 16-1
Phil Mickelson: 18-1
Justin Rose: 20-1

Phil is the fun bet here but I don't love any of them.

Odds to win British Open 2014

Tiger Woods: 11-2
Phil Mickelson: 14-1
Adam Scott: 16-1
Rory McIlroy: 18-1
Henrik Stenson: 20-1

Put it all on Scott.

Odds to win PGA Championship 2014

Tiger Woods: 5-1
Adam Scott: 14-1
Rory McIlroy: 14-1
Phil Mickelson: 16-1
Henrik Stenson: 22-1

Ryder Cup 2014           

Europe: -110
USA: +110

I picked the US at the beginning of this year. I'm sticking with it and you can get good value, too!
