PGA Hero World Challenge Features a Trio of Favorites

A stacked deck ensures action all around as the PGA returns to action this week.  The event features only the cream as the eighteen player field all reside within the top forty of the world.  This makes for compelling round and tournament matchups each day for the PGA Hero World Challenge.  Tiger Woods will not only host but play in this one.  After a very limited 2014, will he be among the trio of favorites in the eyes of the oddsmakers in this one?

Form Trumps Rank and History

Tiger is not listed among the three players whom are pegged to have the best chances this weekend.  The very good thing for golf bettors is that their is even extreme value among the favorites.  Let us look at one market’s opinion and prices on this subject.

  • Stenson + 635
  • Rose + 675
  • Bubba Watson + 675

Futures for PGA events are usually not this high.  Even in the first round matchups there is no consensus as their are slight price fluctuations among fantasy matchups.

  • Stenson -115 over Rose
  • Stenson -125 over Watson
  • Rose -125 over Watson

This is just among the top three.  Tiger Woods’ value is still a little overstated as this is one of his better venues at Windermere in Florida.  Last year he was nowhere in form and got into a playoff with the eventual winner Zach Johnson.  With the size and compactness of the ratings, the linesmen have no qualms in pricing almost every matchup and this is where the value is in.  Too many options to provide means that we can find the chinks in the armor and strike.
