Tiger Woods British Open Odds

The best Tiger Woods British Open odds we could find were at Sportingbet.com - US$250 for every US$100 bet.  And those are great payout odds if you don't happen to live in the US where Sportingbet does not accept bets.  If you live outside the US and happen to be reading Gambling911.com right now, by all means bet Tiger Woods at Sportingbet.com.

US gamblers will still get Woods at good odds a la Sportsbook.com, which listed him at +225 for a potential $225 payout on every $100 bet.

Woods comes into the 2009 British Open as a favorite by a very wide margin despite still having some value paying $225 to $250.

Tom Watson, Greg Norman and Nick Price won the previous three editions held at the par-70 Ayrshire links course, each of the trio doing so when at the pinnacle of the sport.

"(They) were some of the best ball strikers," Woods said in the build-up to Thursday's opening round, referring to the victory by Watson in 1977, Norman (1986) and Price (1994).

"At this golf course you can understand why. You really do have to hit your ball well here. You just can't fake it around this golf course. You have to hit good golf shots."

Peter Dawson, chief executive of Open organizers the R&A, echoed the widespread feeling that Turnberry could become another successful hunting ground for Woods.

"The three winners we've had in the past were arguably the number one player in the world each time," he said. "Whether that will be repeated this week remains to be seen but he (Woods) is the man to beat."

The next shortest odds across the board were assigned to Sergio Garcia, who promised a payout anywhere from US$2000 to US$2800 on a US$100 bet, just to give some idea of the disparity between Woods and who oddsmakers believe is his next closest competition.
