Woods/Manning: -200 vs. Mickelson/Brady: +150
Woods and Manning open as fairly heavy favorites in the charity exhibition. Woods, the defending Masters champion, sits 16th in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings amid the PGA Tour's pause due to the pandemic. Mickelson has slipped all the way to 222nd in Golfweek's rankings after missing the cut in four of his last six professional events.
Manning also holds an edge over Brady, playing to a handicap of 3.5 to Brady's 8.
While Mickelson bested Woods one-on-one after four playoff holes the last time around in 2018 at Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, the favorites are the ones to back at Medalist. Woods is one of many PGA Tour pros who calls it his home course, and he's pairing up with the better of the two amateurs.
Back WOODS/MANNING at -200. A $10 bet will return a profit of $5 with a win. There are sure to be more prop bets released in the build-up to the event, and we at SportsbookWire will have you covered.
