Disgraced golfer Tiger Woods finds himself in a peculiar spot this weekend going in to the Players Championship. After a dismal display at Quail Hollow where he uncharacteristically missed the cut the bookies have given him his longest tournament odds in almost 3 years with Sportsbet willing to pay $8.00 if he can take out the title. This amazing payout comes in spite of Tigers unprecedented run of 258 weeks as the games number one ranked player and could be a great time for punters to cash in. Tiger has undoubtedly been under a lot of pressure of late with experts saying that it is showing through in his swing. But you can never ever right off the man that is quite simply the greatest golfer of all time and with Sportsbet offering you up to $200 in free bets on top of these great odds it is an opportunity that you simply can not miss.
Tigers amazing odds caused me have a little look around the sporting world to see if there was any other good outside bets going around and found a couple that could tickle you taste buds. The French Open Tennis tournament is nearly upon us and we find the usual suspects Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer pitted in as hot favourites paying $1.40 and $4.50 respectively. Novak Djokovic is third favourite at $13, but what about Aussie open finalist Andy Murray? You can find him further down the list with Sportsbet offering a whopping $51 for him to take out his first major. While I seriously don’t think that he will win a small bet on him making the final could be well worth it.
Another good looking bet is $6.50 for Australian F1 driver Mark Webber to win the Spanish GP. His Red Bull car has looked the business this year and with a little bit of luck he could very well be sitting a top of the podium. But watch out Lewis “Doughnut King” Hamilton.
