JUPITER, FL – In one of the more interesting developments of the quarantine, a superstar golf foursome has emerged to captivate the bored and starved sports masses of the world.
Golf legends Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are partnering with the two greatest NFL quarterbacks of a generation in Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to play 18 holes for charity benefitting COVID-19 relief funds.
The Match is set to tee off from Medalist Golf Club in South Florida and will feature plenty of betting options for those looking to wager on the matchup, especially on the very first hole.
Oddsmakers at legal sportsbooks don’t expect an early mishap to occur, putting the shortest odds on a tie after Hole 1.
Who will win Hole No.1?
- Tie -140
- Woods/Manning +250
- Mickelson/Brady +335
However, it appears that they are leaning toward a quick Woods/Manning success, with the shorter odds on the duo.
While the golf professionals will be leading the charge for both pairs, Manning and Brady will still have to hold their own.
When it comes to the quarterback’s accuracy off the tee, Manning is being given the advantage to reach the fairway over Brady.
Will Tom Brady hit FIR on Hole No. 1?
- No -130
- Yes +100
Will Peyton Manning hit FIR on Hole No. 1?
- Yes -125
- No -105
While the odds are rather standard for both quarterbacks, it is important to know Hole 1 at the Medalist Golf Club.
As the fifth hardest hole of the course, this 499-yard par 4 requires over 275 of carry on the opening drive. Additionally, there are two sand traps on the approach and near the right side of the green, as the golfers move up the hole.
Will Peyton Manning birdie Hole No.1?
- No -2500
- Yes +900
Will Tom Brady birdie Hole No. 1?
- No -6600
- Yes +1200
With the precision required right off the rip, betting either of the quarterbacks to get a birdie may look foolish. However, with the potential to make your money back ten-fold or more, the risk could be worth it.
Overall, the matchup is sure to be an amazing spectacle for golf, football, and sports fans in general.
Just like Tiger and Phil’s first matchup all competitors will be mic’d up and broadcast live, giving fans the inside track to all the trash talk.
Beginning at 3 p.m. EST, The Match will have plenty of action before and during live betting action.
