Tiger Mania is in full force as it appears Tiger Woods will be returning to competitive golf for the first time in well over a year at the 2022 Masters.

He released a statement on Saturday, describing a return to competitive golf as a “game-time decision.” However, he has been on the course throughout the week, and barring any setbacks, appears to be set to tee it up at Augusta on Thursday.

Tiger-hysteria has made it a wild time for sportsbooks. First, they were hanging lines on whether he would play or not. And now that it appears he is likely to play, it’s a massive guessing game on how far the public is willing to go when it comes to odds.

The public loves betting on Tiger, and books typically love taking money on Tiger. They will be offering boosts throughout the week, so let’s take a look at some of the best deals out there for placing bets on Woods.

Bet $10 on Tiger, Win $200 (No Matter What!)

DraftKings Withdrawal Insurance

There is always the possibility that Woods’ leg acts up, and he is no longer able to keep going. Woods has withdrawn 11 times in his career, mostly citing injuries. DraftKings is offering withdrawal insurance on every bet placed on Tiger this week. If Woods pulls out of the tournament for any reason, DraftKings will refund the bet.

To Win Outright

Woods is currently between +4000 and +6000 on most sportsbooks to win The Masters. He was as low as 80-1 at PointsBet as early as Tuesday morning, but that line has shot up to 60-1.

The best bet is at Superbook, which is offered in Arizona and Colorado, as well as at the Westgate in Las Vegas. Superbook is offering boosted odds of 80-1 to win The Masters.

Circa Sports, which is offered in Colorado and Iowa, currently has a line at +6500.

Top 5

Not every sportsbook offers a top-5 market, but most do. PointsBet and WynnBet lead the way offering the best odds on Woods to finish in the top 5 as they are currently offering +1100.

Top 10

Bet365 for the New Jersey bettors is offering some of the best odds for Tiger to finish in the top 10. Bet365 has boosted the odds to +600. Most books are hanging a line somewhere between +450 and +500.

Circa, for those in Iowa or Colorado, has the best line at +700.

Top 20

Not all books are offering a top-20 bet. But, out of those that are, WynnBet leads the way out of the widely available books at +200 to make the top 20. Circa, however, has the best line at +320.

Top 30

Only DraftKings, FanDuel and PointsBet are offering top 30 odds. FanDuel has the best odds at +100 for Tiger to make the top 30.

Top 40

This is one of the more popular bets for golf fans to make, but it’s not exactly the smartest one. The line is around -190 on most sportsbooks for this bet, but Tiger to make the cut is available at even money at some places. He has to make the cut in order to finish top 40.

To Make/Miss the Cut

This will likely be the most popular bets of the week on Woods, and it appears the books are getting some good two-way action. Superbook–available in Arizona and Colorado–is currently offering the best odds on to make the cut at +110. Most other books are closer to -115 to make the cut. This appears like it will be close to an even-money bet no matter which side you are on.

Bet $10, Win $200 if Tiger Makes a Birdie.
