The umpteenth version of “The Match” goes down this Saturday, but hey, at least Tiger Woods is competing in this one so it should draw a few more eyeballs that the last few made-for-TV golf exhibitions.
Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas are good buddies who should feed off each other throughout the 12-hole, best-ball format. Woods is with world No. 1 Rory McIlroy so the pairings are pretty even, and the odds reflect that as well.
SportsBetting.ag currently has Team Spieth/Thomas as a slight favorite (-125) against Team Woods/McIlroy (+105).
There are also a ton of different SportsBetting prop bets available to wager on for The Match.
