Betting on 2010 Masters

Betting on the 2010 Masters traffic has been brisk at Gambling911.com, though it can hardly be seen as rivaling that of the Super Bowl or Oscars (or the upcoming Kentucky Derby for that matter). 

The bookies have to be thrilled however.

Las Vegas reported a substantial betting frenzy on the 2010 Masters with Tiger Woods so-called "comeback" following his self-proclaimed infidelity. 

The Las Vegas Hilton is on pace to break its record for Masters wagering by 33 percent, assistant manager Jeff Sherman told the Las Vegas Sun. At the Red Rock Resort, director Jason McCormick estimated the Masters handle would top last year's by 50 percent.

Lucky's sports books director Jimmy Vaccaro told the Las Vegas Review-Journal the early Masters betting is about double what it was in 2009. "We are writing more tickets than I've ever seen," Vaccaro said. "Obviously, it's very simple. It's all because this kid is in the tournament."

But it was those bets against Tiger Woods that look to boost the Vegas books should the world's top golfer continue to perform strong.  The majority of wagers placed were on Woods finishing 11th or worse.

Obviously, there are some people who don't want to see Tiger play very well," McCormick said. "Maybe it's just the layoff or maybe some people are disgusted with some of the things he's done."

Live 2010 Masters betting was available at Sportsbetting.com throughout the weekend.
