He’s probably not winning the tournament, but some guy named Tiger Woods is the betting favorite heading into the weekend at the Valspar Championship.
Woods, who’s in a five-way tie for second place, is listed at +350. Tiger trails only Corey Conners, a relatively unknown golfer from Canada who has a career-best finish of 29th in 20 starts. Conners leads the field by two strokes at 6-under par.
It’s hard to envision Conners, who is at +800, stringing two more strong rounds together, so I’m going to focus on that large group of players within a few strokes of Woods.
