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.
