At 14-to-1 odds, you won't believe what the best Tiger Woods prop bet out there is

Remember when you could bet Tiger Woods straight up against the field? Those days are long gone, but the 14-time major champ remains one of the favorites to win every time he tees it up -- at least, at Las Vegas sports books.

Not surprisingly, though, Woods' performance at the Memorial, in which he posted his career-worst round (85) and career-worst four-round total (302) en route to finishing eight shots behind anyone else who made the cut, has affected his odds for the rest of the year's major championships.

According to Bovada, Woods is now listed at 33-to-1 odds to win next week's U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. Prior to the Memorial, Woods, who finished T-17 at the Masters, was 14/1, with only Rory McIlroy (5/1) and Jordan Spieth (7/1) having lower odds. Now there are 11 players with lower odds than Woods at the U.S. Open.

Of course, many would argue that number should be much higher. After all, Woods is now No. 182 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Oddsmakers give Woods a better shot of turning it around in time for the British Open at St. Andrews, a course where Woods has won the claret jug twice. Woods is currently 14/1, but that's up from 9/1 before the Memorial. He was 12/1 to win the PGA Championship before his ochocinco in Columbus. Now he's only 20/1.

The odds of him winning one major this year are up to 5/1, while Woods failing to win a major this year has become an overwhelming favorite at 1/16. And now there's actually a prop bet on whether Woods will shoot another 85 (or worse) this year.

Incredibly, at 14/1, that's probably the best value of the bunch.
