Oddsmakers Formulating Several Tiger Woods Prop Bets

April 7th, 2010-  By Bryan Cross

All eyes will be fixated on Tiger Woods as he makes his return to competitive golf this week at the 2010 Masters, following a five-month long, self-imposed break from the game, after admitting to multiple acts of infidelity.

He announced several weeks ago his intentions to make his debut at the Masters, as he embarks on his mission for a fifth green jacket, and fifteenth career major championship.

In spite of all he has endured since the beginning of December, USA Online Sportsbooks believe that Woods will play well, and have installed him as the betting favorite to win the 2010 Masters tournament, going off at 4/1.

Additionally, oddsmakers have formulated, and are fielding a variety of prop bets relating to Tiger Woods and his performance at the Masters this week.
