Online sportsbook action for the WGC Bridgestone Invitational heavily favors Tiger Woods as the looks to win for the second straight week.

Internet sportsbook numbers have Woods as the 8-5 betting choice this week against a talent heavy field. Here is a look at some of the odds for the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

 

Online sportsbook odds almost always favor Woods whenever he is entered in an event. The WGC Bridgestone Invitational is a warm-up for next week’s PGA Tournament. Normally Tiger would not play the week leading up to a major but this year is an exception. That is good news for the Internet sportsbook though as Tiger makes a golf event a lot more exciting.

It is always tough to bet against Tiger at the Internet sportsbook but if you do there is a lot of value on other golfers. This week is one occasion where that is the case. The second choice at the online sportsbook in golf odds is Phil Mickelson at about 12-1. After Tiger and Phil the odds go up even farther at the online sportsbook. Jim Furyk is the third choice at the online sportsbook at 26-1 followed by Retief Goosen at 27-1. Sergio Garcia has golf odds at the online sportsbook of more than 30-1.

If you have a golfer that you believe can win then this is a great week to bet them at the online sportsbook. Anthony Kim, Steve Stricker and Hunter Mahan are all 32-1 at the online sportsbook. Stewart Cink, who won the British Open is 37-1. Big names like Geoff Ogilvy and young superstar Rory McIlroy are more than 40-1 in online betting. Kenny Perry, who has won a lot of times this year already, is 41-1 in sports betting at the online sportsbook. Ernie Ells and Padraig Harrington are 46-1. Former Masters winner Zach Johnson, who has won multiple times this season in golf odds is listed at 53-1. You get the idea that there is a lot of value this week at the Internet sportsbook for golf sports betting odds.

Don’t forget about the matchups at the online sportsbook. You can bet on a large variety of matchups. Tiger is matched up against Phil and Woods is a -450 favorite at the online sportsbook. Other online betting matchups are more competitive like Jim Furyk against Anthony Kim, Luke Donald vs. Padraig Harrington, etc.
