Matchup to Watch
In this situation Tiger Woods is going to draw a lot of money to the Golf betting lines. However, it’s important to keep a level head. To be exact Woods will no longer have the surprise underdog element. Similarly, he will offer no betting value. By contrast Dustin Johnson is a classic beaten favorite with real ability.
