Tiger Woods a Longshot to Win a Major Championship in 2019

  • A prop has been posted on whether Tiger Woods will win a major or not in 2019.
  • At +325, his implied probability is a bit less than 25% to take home his 15th major.

Although Davey Pageviews would disagree, it’s safe to say that Tiger Woods is “back.” His T-6 finish at The Open coupled with a runner-up at the PGA Championship make that pretty clear. Unfortunately for him, he’s on top of his game right when he has to wait eight more months for another major.

Luckily, if you’re a bettor you don’t have to wait. Odds have been posted regarding whether Tiger will take home a major in the 2019 season:

  • Yes: +325
  • No: -450

These odds correspond with a ~23.5% chance that he does and an 81.8% chance that he doesn’t. Of course, those add up to more than 100% because they’ll be taking a cut of the loot.

His odds for each major will slightly vary, but if all things were equal, he’d essentially be a 16-1 shot in each of the four tournaments. He’s already opened at 12-1 to win the Masters at the Westgate, tied for second-best odds behind only Jordan Spieth.

Of course, this also gives bettors the opportunity to fade Tiger if they so choose, which isn’t an option most of the time. Considering his health woes over the past several years, a healthy Woods playing this well is nowhere near a guarantee that far down the road. Even if Tiger is playing well, there’s still a good chance he doesn’t win one, making the -450 a potentially enticing option for the naysayers.
