Is Woods a Value Pick with Genesis Open Betting Odds?
The Legend Returns to the Links
Genesis Open betting odds have been released and Tiger Woods is the biggest name along the entrants.
Woods is making a highly anticipated return to competitive golf at the Genesis Open this week, following a 20-month hiatus.
This exciting event will feature some of the top golfers in the world, including Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, and Scottie Scheffler. While it is uncertain if Woods will be able to match his previous form, such as winning the Masters in 2019, his presence alone is enough to make the tournament a must-watch event for golf fans.
Specking for Woods at Odds
Woods has not had the best form lately, with missed cuts at The Open Championship and PGA Championship, as well as a 47th-place finish at the Masters in 2022. Despite this, his +12,500 Genesis Open betting odds may be worth considering for sentimental bettors.
This is because Woods has a long and storied history in the sport and has a large following of fans who will be eager to see how he performs after such a long break from competition.
It will be a hard tournament to win because of all the great names teeing it up, but the PGA Tour schedule is never easy.
Getting such high odds makes Woods a play for old-time’s sake.
After all he’s gone through. It’s incredible that he keeps trying,” Jon Rahm said. “Spoke to him at the Bahamas. Everything he had on his leg and then you add the plantar fasciitis. I really feel for him in that sense. But I know he’s going to keep doing everything he can to still try to win more tournaments. Possibly get that 83rd win. Hopefully, obviously in his mind a major, right?
Scheffler Eyes Consecutive Wins
Scheffler, who recently dethroned McIlroy as the world number one after winning his fifth PGA Tour tournament at the WM Phoenix Open, is a strong contender for the Genesis Invitational.
He has a solid track record of performing well during the months of February, March, and April, making him an excellent choice for bettors at +1000 with PGA odds this week.
He held his nerve well at the Phoenix Open and he can’t be left out of selections. We expect his Genesis Open betting odds to firm to single figures. He could close the gap on Rahm, who is best-backed to win at +750.
Young and Theegala at Value
Another player to keep an eye on at the Genesis Open is Cameron Young. Despite finishing 64th at the Phoenix Open, Young has a history of shining in big tournaments and could be a solid bet at +3000 odds.
He is overdue a winning turn and we compare him to Scheffler of 2022. Once he breaks through for his first PGA Tour win, the floodgates could open.
We’re happy to stick with him at his current odds.
Former top amateur Sahith Theegala is also worth considering for your golf picks. Currently, at +7000 odds, Theegala has shown solid form with a strong showing at the Farmers Insurance Open, followed by a T39 result at the Phoenix Open.
This indicates that he is playing well and could be a dark horse with Genesis Open betting odds. He’s worth a top 10 wager as well, so include him in selections.Follow us on Twitter
