Arnold Palmer Invitational Odds & Betting Preview

Tiger Woods PGA Tour

With the Masters only three weeks away, the PGA Tour season is heating up. Next up on the docket is a tournament that has a special place in the hearts of golf fans: the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Tiger fever is back, and golf bettors are all-in.

It’s been a long time since I’ve typed these words, but here it goes: Tiger Woods is the favorite to win a professional golf event. Woods is the heavy +650 fave at Bovada, with Jason Day (+1100), Justin Rose (+1400), Rory McIlroy (+1400), Rickie Fowler (+1600), Tommy Fleetwood (+2200), Hideki Matsuyama (+2500), Alex Noren (+3000), Tyrrell Hatton (+3000) and Henrik Stenson (+3300) rounding out the top 10 at the shop.

The decision to install Woods as the favorite comes immediately after the legendary golfer posted a 9 under showing at the Valspar Championship, which was only one shot shy of champion Paul Casey. Tiger fever is officially back, however, and sports bettors are hammering Woods’ odds as a result.

Woods’ impact on the popularity of golf is undeniable, and some steady consecutive strong finishes by the 42-year-old will go a long way to proving that he can still be competitive despite his well-documented fall from grace. Woods hasn’t played at the tournament since he edged out Rose in a dramatic Monday finish in 2013.

Who has the betting edge at Arnie’s Place?

Marc Leishman emerged triumphant at the 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational, topping Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman by a single shot on the final day. The Aussie made only one bogey over his final 15 holes on the way to a 3-under-par 69. It was Leishman’s second PGA Tour win, which came nearly five years after his 2012 Travelers Championship victory. Leishman can be had at a price of +3500 to go back to back in Florida.

Five of the top 10 players in the current world rankings will tee it up in Orlando. Matsuyama, who’s been out of action since early February with a nagging wrist injury, is making his return to the tour at Arnie’s Place. Matsuyama was forced to withdraw from the Waste Management Phoenix Open but notched finishes of T-5, T-4 and T-12 prior to that.

Bay Hill Club & Lodge is a 7,419-yard par 72 that’s steeped in tradition. The course, which is fondly referred to as “Arnie’s Place,” was built in 1961 and has hosted tour events since 1979. Palmer, who passed away 19 months ago, is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most charismatic players in the sport’s long history. Winning here is considered to be a great honor for many players on the tour.
