At some point, people are going to stop betting on Tiger Woods to win the Masters. We haven't reached that point yet.
Since August at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, more than 100 bets were placed on Tiger Woods to win the Masters. Out of the 108 golfers offered at sportsbook operator CG Technology, Woods attracted the 19th-most Masters bets. And not all of these seemingly risky wagers -- described as "donations" by some -- were small, either.
"We took a $1,000 wager on him at 50-1, after he showed some signs of life in the tournament in December down in the Bahamas," said SuperBook assistant manager Jeff Sherman. "Prior to him withdrawing, he was our largest liability on the [Masters] betting board. He was top five in ticket count at the time too."
