So Tiger Woods is returning to the PGA
00:02
tour this week at the Farmer's Insurance Open,
00:04
and no one is more excited than me.
00:06
Well, maybe sports books around the world.
00:09
In anticipation of his first full field event in
00:12
more than 17 months, here's a look at
00:14
some Tiger prop bets available on BookMaker sports book.
00:18
Even if you're not into gambling, they're fun.
00:21
Plus they'll get you into prop bet mode
00:22
ahead of next week's Super Bowl,
00:24
where you'll be able to bet on everything
00:26
from how many catches Julio Jones has,
00:28
to how many times Bill Belichick cracks a smile,
00:31
to how under inflated the Patriots' footballs are.
00:35
Kidding.
00:36
The game's in Houston, so no need.
00:37
But back to Tiger.
00:39
BookMaker lists him at minus 115 to make the cut.
00:42
That means you'd risk $115 on a hundred dollar bet.
00:46
Not bad.
00:47
The guy has a decent track record at Torrey Pines.
00:50
Of course, this is also the place where Woods
00:52
withdrew a couple years ago when
00:54
he couldn't activate his glutes.
00:57
You can get three to one odds on Woods WD-ing again.
01:00
You can't, however, bet on whether
01:01
his glutes will activate this time.
01:03
The over under of birdies Woods
01:04
will make for the week is 6.5.
01:06
If you think Woods will make the weekend,
01:09
this is a good one.
01:11
Especially since he led the field in birdies
01:13
at the Hero World Challenge in December.
01:15
Of course, he also led the field that week in double bogies.
01:20
And Torrey Pines' rough figures to be extra juicy
01:23
with the San Diego area receiving a rare dousing of late.
01:27
Maybe that over 8.5 bogies is the better play.
01:33
And of course, you can bet on Woods
01:35
winning the event at 30 to one.
01:39
Let's not get too crazy here.
01:42
