Tiger Woods will return to golf action this week at the Masters.
He’s drawing plenty of action at the BetMGM online sportsbook, pulling in 11.5% of the tickets and 14% of the handle as of Thursday morning. This is with Masters golf odds of +4000, down from +5000 at the start of the week.
Instead of looking at Woods to win, it might make more sense to look at some of the Masters prop bets for him.
My favorite Woods bet for the week is to make the cut at +115.
Betting on Woods to win the tournament, or even finish in the top 10 or 20, means he needs to put together four solid days and make it through 72 holes. In order to make the cut, it’s just two decent days and ultimately being better than 40 players in the field.
Right off the bat, Woods will likely be better than the six amateurs and many of the returning champions. So, can Woods be better than roughly two dozen players over two days? I like my chances.
Not to mention he’s never missed a cut at Augusta National as a professional in 21 appearances.
