British Open: Vegas, online books differ on Tiger’s odds

No matter where you bet the British Open, Tiger Woods will be the favorite, but the odds you’ll find may differ drastically from Vegas sportsbooks to online betting shops.

Golfodds.com, which supplies odds for the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, had Tiger set as a +1000 favorite to win next month’s tournament, with Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood on his heels at +1200.

However, bet365.com had Woods set as a +550 favorite as of Monday afternoon, with McIlroy and Westwood at +1000.

After winning The Memorial, Woods had a share of the lead last weekend at the U.S. Open through the opening two rounds before posting a 75 Saturday and a 73 Sunday to fall out of contention.  It has now been four years since Woods last won a major, but he took some positives from the weekend.

"I'm excited about the consistency of it. How well I hit the ball all week," Woods told reporters. "I didn't really miss it that badly this week. The misses were just a fraction off, which is great. That's what we want to have happen. This golf course is just so demanding that a fraction off you pay a price."

U.S. Open winner, Webb Simpson, is set at +4000 to win the British Open at bet365.com and LVH.

British Open odds from bet365.com:


Tiger Woods +550
Lee Westwood +1000
Rory McIlroy +1000
Luke Donald +1400
Sergio Garcia +2500
Phil Mickelson +2800
Justin Rose +2800
Graeme McDowell +2800
Martin Kaymer +2800
Padraig Harrington +3000

The thing with Tiger is that when he's bet on fairly lightly he can play real good but on days when everybody and his brother is pounding the living shit out of him like rounds 3 and 4 of the US Open then all of a sudden he plays like a little dumbass tard on the take! ,,,,,,,,,,,,, same thing with Earnhardt jr, for years he aint done shit but this season for the first time ever he's actually not a popular bet with the fans so of course he's winning most of his matchup's each week and he even managed to win a race last week,,, but watch out, as soon as the masses come back they turn into little fkn moron actors that cant seem to do shit right!!!!!!!!!!
