U.S. OpenJune 17, 2015

Judging by the odds of these prop bets, Vegas doesn't think much of Tiger's chances at Chambers Bay

Tiger Woods has fallen from the lists of favorites for this week's U.S. Open, but just how far? Westgate SportsBook in Las Vegas is listing the 14-time major champ and three-time winner of this event at 60-to-1 odds.

On the bad side, it would appear Woods has little chance of competing at Chambers Bay. On the bright side, if you're into making sucker bets, these are the best odds that have ever been available on Tiger!

But don't worry, there are plenty of other Tiger prop bets that you might find more interesting if you're looking for some action. For instance, there's actually a bet where Woods is a favorite -- hitting the first fairway. Woods is -120 (risk $120 to win $100) to hit the first fairway on Thursday. Considering the generous landing areas Chambers Bay features off the tee, this doesn't seem like a bad bet. Until you consider this stat from ESPN's Jason Sobel:

Hmm. Maybe not, then. What about Woods finishing in the top 20? Westgate is offering 3-to-1 odds on that. That sounds pretty good considering Woods finished T-17 at the Masters. Until you look at Woods' results and realize that's his only top-20 finish since 2013.

OK then, what about Woods just making the cut? Westgate lists Woods at +120 (risk $100 to win $120). In other words, Tiger Woods, a man who you used to have to bet straight up against the rest of the field, is a slight underdog just to make it to the weekend. We repeat: Tiger Woods, who used to be expected to win every time he teed it up, isn't expected to even play four rounds at a golf tournament anymore.

Yes, Woods is struggling, but that seems like your best bet. Tiger has to make the cut. Put us down for a Benjamin. Eh, on second thought, let's make that a Hamilton. . .
