    What the hell-Bettors place more money on Tiger Woods to win U.S. Open at 40-1 odds

    ANYONE ELSE BITING?
    Dustin Johnson
    is the betting favorite to win this week's U.S. Open at Winged Foot Golf Club, but some popular veterans are attracting notable action at sportsbooks around the U.S.

    More money has been bet on Tiger Woods to win the tournament than has been bet on any other golfer at William Hill sportsbooks, while Phil Mickelson has attracted the largest bet.
    As of Tuesday night, 18% of the money that had been wagered on the tournament winner was on Woods, who is listed at 40-1. Johnson is the favorite at 17-2, followed by Jon Rahm (10-1), Xander Schauffele (14-1) and Justin Thomas (14-1).
    Mickelson is way down the odds board, but there are some believers in the left-hander who has never won the U.S. Open. Last week, a bettor placed a $45,000 bet on Mickelson to win the tournament at 75-1 odds at a William Hill sportsbook in southern Nevada. The bettor would win a net $3.375 million if Mickelson prevails.
    The wager represents the second-largest liability on an individual golf bet in William Hill's history in the U.S., behind only a $100,000 bet placed last year on Woods to win all four major tournaments at 100-1 odds.
    Mickelson held a 1-shot lead on No. 18 of the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot, but then double-bogeyed and lost by 1. He joked about the big bet on him on Twitter.
    Only Schauffele had attracted more bets to win the tournament than Mickelson at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.
    "Phil is our largest liability," said Jeff Sherman, vice president of risk management for the SuperBook.
    Sherman said Woods has attracted a lot of bets but not much money. "He's a positive position for us, which is rare for a major," Sherman added.
    At FanDuel's sportsbooks, Woods had attracted more bets to miss the cut than any other golfer.

    WillHill is printing money by putting Woods and Mickelson on the board.

    What are Tigerís odds to miss the cut? Iíll jump all over that. This course is going to be too much for him and his putting isnít good enough to hang on these greens. Ill take the over on 4.5 three putts by Tiger this week.

    Gotta love the quote by Rory. They asked him if under par could win this week and he laughed and said ďNot a chance.Ē

    I saw River Illinois had it originally +180 and then +250 after profit boost. I take it you think that's a good bet?

    I do. Itís a hard bet because I am rooting for Tiger. But my head says heís gonna really struggle here. He missed the cut here in 2006 in his prime. And I get his head wasnít in it that year but he still played awful. The course doesnít suit his strengths and magnifies his weaknesses, which is putting.

    I heard today they cut the rough.
    They asked an official why and they said if they didnít they were afraid the winning score could be +10 or more. The course is so firm and hard bc of lack of rain and now dry weather coming in. Itís super tough enough already without the rough.

    Not true. Seriously what would you do after 8 back surgeries he is still swing adjustment and won few times last year wtf??lol
    Granted his goals have changed for course achievements like passing nicklaus, snead. Doesnt need the money anymore really never did. Its the love of the game. Can he still bring the game yes but not 75/100 more like 40/100 now
