2012 Greenbrier Classic Betting Odds

Filed under: PGA Golf Betting Odds |

Say what you will about Tiger Woods being back, or not being back until he wins at least one major. The fact of the matter is that he is back to being the best golfer in the world.

And while the rankings don’t yet show that, as Woods remains No.4, his third victory of the 2012 PGA Tour Season speaks volumes as to where he is. Woods captured the AT&T National this past weekend, getting his second victory in a little over 30 days, and his third this season.

It won’t be long until we get to see Woods back in action on the golf course with the 2012 Greenbrier Classic this week from the Old White TPC in White Sulpher Springs, West Virginia. Woods headlines what will be one of the best fields for this tournament in recent memory.

When it comes to the odds to win, you can probably guess that the betting lines are riding the coattails of Woods victory on Sunday. And you would be exactly right, as he is a big favorite to win for a fourth time on the PGA Tour this season.

Greenbrier Classic Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have set Woods at 7/2 to win. And when looking at the rest of the odds, this betting line has the feeling of three or four years ago, with Woods set as a huge favorite.

To put that into perspective, U.S Open winner Webb Simpson comes in next on the odds to win, going off at 16/1. That is four times the payout than Woods.

Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson come in next in line, going off at 20/1 each. Johnson returned from injury about a month ago, getting a win in the process. Mickelson hasn’t really strung four good rounds together in a tournament since the beginning of the season, and will try to get back into good form with the British Open and PGA Championship on the horizon.

Jim Furyk rounds out the top-five favorites to win the Greenbrier, going off at 22/1. You have to think that the sting of losing the U.S Open might still be with him, but he has been around long enough to hopefully not let that bother him.

Coverage of the 2012 Greenbrier Classic starts on Thursday on the Golf Channel at 3pm Et, with weekend coverage on CBS.

Below, you will see the full field betting odds for the Greenbrier Classic as seen on Bovada, so if we didn’t mention your favorite golfer, see how they stack up this week.
