Betting Odds To Win WGC Bridgestone Invitational

Filed under: PGA Golf Betting Odds |

Many of the top players in the world will be back on the golf course this week in their first appearance since the British Open. The PGA Tour goes to Akron, Ohio for the playing of the 2012 WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Tiger Woods tops the list here, and rightfully so. He has won this event seven times.

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Woods is the favorite on WGC Bridgestone Invitational Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook.

But there are a number of notables coming in behind, one of which is Adam Scott. Any golf fan remembers a couple of weeks ago the heartbreaking finish that Scott had. He blew a four-shot lead with four holes to play to lose by one stroke to Ernie Els. Scott was seeking his first Major championship victory. But in the end, shaky play down the stretch cost him, and he was denied the victory.

Scott also happens to be the defending champion at the WGC Bridgestone this week, so you have to think that there are some positive feelings coming into it.

Scott is behind only Woods and Luke Donald on the betting odds to win the WGC Bridgestone. Woods is going off at 7/2, well ahead of the rest of the field. Donald comes in at 14/1, and then there is Scott at 16/1.

It will definitely be interesting to see how Scott will respond after the disappointment. But he was not the only one with a disappointing Sunday. Woods did not play well on Sunday at all, and probably looks back at it wondering what could have been. It was the second Major this year that Woods was at or near the top of the lead and was unable to make any kind of a move, and frankly fell out of contention. But Woods did move up to the No.2 ranked player in the world, behind only Donald.

A win this week, and Woods might be back at the top of the golf rankings depending on how Donald finishes.
