Don't look now but Tiger Woods is closing in on the lead at the 2018 Valspar Championship with the potential to pay out $2000 on every $100 bet if he can get the deal done.

Canadian rookie Corey Conners kept the lead in the tournament while Woods was right in front of him Saturday, and Conners could hear the roars all afternoon.

Conners, who ran off birdies in the early stretches of both sides at Innisbrook, saved par from the bunker on the 17th and kept his cool when his ball moved slightly on the 18th green to finish off a par for a 3-under-par 68.

Odds updated ahead of Sunday's play with betting available up until Day 4 starting time.

Here are the odds heading into Sunday's final round with Woods a surprising favorite to win:

Tiger Woods 9/4

Justin Rose 5/2

Brandt Snedeker 5/1

Corey Conners 13/2

Patrick Reed 15/1

Sam Burns 25/1

Ryan Palmer 50/1

Paul Casey 50/1

Adam Scott 50/1

Rory Sabbatini 60/1

Kelly Kraft 60/1

Webb Simpson 60/1

Louis Oosthuizen 60/1

Branden Grace 80/1
