Genesis Invitational odds 2023: Tiger Woods in unfamiliar territory
The days of Tiger Woods vs. The Field are ancient history. Yet still, on the rare occasions he does turn up for an official event, Woods still commands enough action in betting markets to be in the 50-1 and below range odd-wise. That is not the case this week at the Genesis Invitational at Riviera, one of the rare venues on the PGA Tour Woods has never won at.
Of course, it's not only Woods' history at Riv that has him in deep longshot territory. It's mainly the fact we haven't seen Woods swing a club since the PNC Championship alongside his son, Charlie, in December. Before that, Woods last teed it up in an official event last July at the 150th Open at St. Andrews, where he missed the cut. As for non-majors, this will mark the first time Woods has played in a regular PGA Tour event since the 2020 Zozo Championship.
All these factors have led to Woods opening at 100-1 at the DraftKings Sportsbook, and he can be found as high as 150-1 elsewhere. You don't have to be an expert to know that Woods has minimal chance of winning this tournament, but people will likely bet the Big Cat anyway.
All the way at the top is Jon Rahm, once again the tournament favorite (+750) coming off another impressive performance at the WM Phoenix Open. Rory McIlroy is next at 10-1, along with back-to-back WM Phoenix Open winner Scottie Scheffler. Justin Thomas (14-1), Xander Schauffele (16-1), Tony Finau (18-1) and 2021 Genesis Invitational champ Max Homa (20-1) round out the top of the odds board.
Below are the odds for every player in the field at the 2023 Genesis Invitational.
