US Open: Tiger Woods still odds favorite to win

US Open: Tiger Woods still odds favorite to win The second round of the 2008 US Open is close to tee off and Tiger Woods remains the odds favorite to win the golf tournament, despite trailing 4 shots. Tiger Woods, who ended Day 1 of the U.S. Open tied for the No.20 now holds 10/3 odds with the online sportsbook BodogSports to be the winner of the 108th edition of the famous golf tourney. Not bad for bettors, considering Woods opened on 5/2 odds, then he got shortened to 2/1, right before the start of the golf championship. Phil Mickelson is also keeping his second-best spot on the betting sheets, he is now listed with odds 11/2 on winning the U.S. Open. Phil Mickelson, who finished Day 1 tied for No.12 with even score, opened earlier with odds 7/1.

 The leaders of the 2008 U.S. Open, after the first round, Justin Hicks and Kevin Streelman, finally found their way to some odds. Initially the two golfers, who now share the No.1 spot on the U.S. Open leaderboard, were listed as "field" and paid out on just 5/1. BodogSports today added the two on the betting sheet and bettors are finally getting some good numbers - Justin Hicks is listed with odds 50/1 to stay on track and win the 2008 U.S. Open, while Kevin Streelman is holding odds 66/1.
