The Odds to Win The Barclays
Looking to make some quick money? Figure out who's going to win the next PGA Tour Event.
It wasn't long ago Tiger Woods was the favorite at every golf tournament and going off at 4 or 5 to 1. In those same events you would find Mickelson going off around 8/1. Times, well, they are a changing. As the PGA Tour has seen fourteen first time winners on The Tour, odds makers are left scrambling to pick the winners.

Although they are the favorites nearly every week, Tiger and Phil come at a much better price than they once did. This week a you can buy the co-favorites for 12/1. Those of you not familiar with betting, this means a $50 bet will earn you $600. If you're quick at math you realized a $100 wager will earn you a cool $1,200. All this for betting the worlds #1 or #2 golfers will win a 125 player golf tournament.
Tiger & Phil Won't Win, Who Else Looks Good?
According to Vegas, Rory McIlroy does. He's slightly behind our co-favorites going off at 14/1. How about Steve Stricker, his 20/1 price makes him an ideal candidate for my money. A $50 wager on him earns you $1,000.
The list goes on. Jim Furyk and Padraig Harrington are next at 25/1. I don't think Padraig has done anything this earn to earn my money but I haven't picked a winner yet this year. Dustin Johnson at 28/1? Can he recover from "Bunker Gate"? He looked great at Whistling Straits but how is he mentally? If you're up for it, a $50 wager will earn you $1,400.... if he wins.Continued on the next page
