Tiger was basically a coin flip to play in the Masters earlier this week, but industry leader Circa has adjusted their market to heavily favor Woods teeing off, a little more than a year after a devastating car accident left us wondering if we'd ever see him play competitive golf again.
Tiger Woods' finishing props
To win outright (+5,000)
To kick off our list of picks we're going with the most popular bet, the outright winner. Woods opened 50/1 to win the whole thing and for good reason. Saying a win here would be a long shot is an understatement and there are plenty of other golfers with much higher value to win it all.
That being said, Tiger won the 2019 Masters Tournament at 14/1 odds and although this line is much longer, we've learned to 'never-say-never' when it comes to Woods.
To finish in the Top 5 (+1,000)
Woods has finished Top 5 at Augusta four times in seven appearances since 2010, with his last trip being a victory back in 2019. Although those numbers are impressive and +1,000 looks like good value, we need to put into account this will be Tiger's first PGA appearance since his car crash back in February of last year.
To finish in the Top 10 (+450)
With the window opening a little wider, we see the odds take a drastic dip falling all the way down to +450. However, keep in mind this is a feat he has accomplished 14 times here and depending on how much magic is left in him, we could see it a 15th.
To finish in the Top 20 (+200)
Finishing Top 20 on this course would be a dream come true for most golfers on the Tour, but not for Tiger — who has dawned the green jacket five times over his illustrious career.
The farther we go down on the leaderboard the less money there is to win, but considering the circumstances, getting 3/1 odds on this prop presents a lot of value if you're looking to put some money on a finishing prop for Woods.
Tiger Woods' first-round props
To lead after 1st Round (+5,000)
Oh boy, now we're getting into absolute fairytale territory here. We all love Tiger... but there's a reason this bet sits at +5,000.
Augusta always features the best golfers in the world, including betting favorite Jon Rahm and (new) OWGR No. 1 Scottie Scheffler. Although everyone loves a good Cinderella story, understand this is a long-shot bet.
Top 5 after 1st Round (+1,000)
Although this bet is still a bit of a stretch, it has much more legs to it than him leading after the first round of play. When Woods won the Masters back in 2019 his first-round score sat at 70.
That same number would have slotted him T2 with Will Zalatoris in last year's tournament. If he can find his groove early — and hover right around that low-70s mark — this bet could get frisky.
Top 10 after 1st Round (+450)
Going back to the previous bet, this all hinges on how well Tiger can come out of the gate. Woods has performed extremely well in the first round here before but there may be some rust that need to be shaken off those clubs before putting any serious money on a first-round bet.
Top 20 after 1st Round (+250)
If you're really sold on putting any money on a first-round prop bet for a guy who hasn't played on the Tour in over a year then, again looking in the Top 20-finished range is your safest bet. You have by far the most wiggle room for him to sneak in and, unlike betting on Eldrick to finish Top 20 after four rounds... this only requires one good day — crazier things have happened, right?
Tiger Woods' cut props
To miss the cut (-145)
There's a reason this is the only bet listed that isn't at plus money.
Was his Masters win back in 2019 the greatest golf moment ever? Possibly.
Will him making any sort of noise in this tournament — in his first professional round in over a year — require a small miracle? Probably.
Will he still be facing a tall task to see Saturday's action, making these short odds justified? Definitely.
To make the cut (+115)
But where's the fun in a weekend without Tiger?! To find the last time Woods missed a cut at the Masters, you'd have to go all the way back 1996. That's right, the last time he missed a cut here wasn't even in this millennium.
I'm not saying it won't happen... but I'm not saying it will, either.
Tiger Woods' extra props
To shoot 70 or lower in all four rounds (+3,300)
The level of consistency and focus you need to have to shoot 70 or below for four straight rounds is something even some of the world's best struggle with frequently. It's also a feat Woods has accomplished just twice at Augusta since 2010.
Let's also not forget he actually has to make it to all four rounds for this bet to even have a chance.
To play in final group in final round (+2,200)
To round out the Tiger bets, we have him playing in the final round of the tournament. Once again it sits so high at +2,200 because so many things have to go right for him to make it there.
What makes this prop enticing is that you believe Tiger can recapture that same magic he found back in 2019, getting 22/1 is great value... considering he only needs to play three strong rounds.
We only need Woods to play in the final group on Sunday at Augusta, removing the need for him to finish off another historic event — but we'd all be rooting for him anyways.
