The odds suggest a victory by Keegan Bradley, Jason Day, Brian Harman, Justin Rose, or Sepp Straka would be the best-case scenario for BetMGM, as each of those players has generated less than 1% of the handle. Collin Morikawa has the shortest odds at 15/2. Max Homa’s odds are 8/1, and Justin Thomas has odds of 14/1.

Scottie Scheffler, the world’s top-ranked player, has the second-shortest odds at 9/2 (+450). Scheffler has finished second in each of the previous two Hero World Challenges. Scheffler is on 5.4% of the BetMGM tickets but is responsible for just 3.5% of the money wagered.

However, Viktor Hovland has the overall shortest odds this week at just 4/1. The two-time defending champion is responsible for nearly 9% of the BetMGM bets and 22% of the money bet.

Tiger Woods, despite not playing a competitive round of golf in nearly eight months, is the betting favorite for this week’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. His odds have lengthened from opening at 40/1 to 66/1. On the current line, a winning $100 bet would net $6,600. Despite representing its biggest liability for the tournament, BetMGM isn’t overly concerned with a potential victory for Woods.

The book has lengthened Woods’ odds to get as much action as possible on the 47-year-old, whose play will benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation. The tournament benefits the foundation, which supports programs improving the health, education, and welfare of children. Seventeen players among the 20-person field are ranked inside the top 30 in the world, with the exceptions being Woods, Justin Rose, and Lucas Glover, who all received special invitations to the tournament.
