8th May, 21:19Driving Relief: McIlroy-Johnson vs. Fowler-Wolff odds and bets
The PGA Tour will return, at least briefly Sunday, May 17 for the TaylorMade Driving Relief skins match with Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson taking on Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff. The four golfers will compete in their teams of two at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida, in a charity match raising money and awareness for COVID-19 relief efforts.
Skins are a form of match play whereby the teams will be competing to win each hole and the prize money associated with it. If a hole is halved (tied) the prize money will carry over to the next hole. Multiple holes can be won or lost on a single stroke.

McIlroy/Johnson: -223 vs. Fowler/Wolff: +165
On paper, the teams are incredibly lopsided. McIlroy and Johnson combine for 38 career PGA Tour victories and five majors. Fowler and Wolff combine for just six PGA Tour wins, with Wolff's first and only win to date coming at last year's 3M Open.
FORWARD PRESS PODCAST: Relief efforts, questionable aces amid COVID-19
McIlroy sits second in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings with Johnson ranked 10th. Fowler is 31st and Wolff is 87th.
The skins format helps level the playing field as a single good or bad hole can drastically flip the match. Even still, the odds aren't quite enticing enough for Fowler and Wolff with a $10 bet returning a profit of $16.50. It's better to back McIlroy and Johnson as favorites, with the same bet fetching a return of $4.50.
