The final 2010 golf Major starts on Thursday - and we have the PGA Championship betting odds. For the first time in a long time, Tiger Woods is not the Las Vegas favorite in a Major he's playing. COMMENT NOW:
2010 PGA Championship Betting Odds
Phil Mickelson: 14 to 1
Tiger Woods: 17 to 1 (less than a 6% chance)
Rory Mcllroy: 20 to 1
Padraig Harrington: 25 to 1
Steve Stricker: 28 to 1
Ernie Els: 30 to 1
On one hand it is impressive that Tiger is still the second favorite – but last year in the 2009 PGA Championship, Tiger Wood was a massive 2-1 favorite (with Phil Mickelson the second favorite at 18 to 1)! Said another way, Tiger had SIX TIMES BETTER chance of winning last year than this year (33% vs. 5.5%), according to Vegas. Talk about a noteworthy drop!
Also note these odds are a weighted average, taking into account multiple markets. Odds from any single sportsbook can be misleading for numerous reasons.
