In terms of individuals, it is hard to stay away from Tiger Woods. Oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com have given Woods 3/2 odds to win this years event and being a former five-time winner, it is hard to find a better play. Woods is looking to start 2011 off strong after a winless 2010 and with all his off-the-course issues taken care of, he can start to focus on getting back to the top of the sport.

In terms of matchup odds, I like Woods over anyone obviously but a few others to consider are Dustin Johnson -125 vs. Nick Watney and Gary Woodland +110 vs. Jhonattan Vegas.

Johnson is poised for a big 2011 as well as he finished in the top 10 in four of his last eight events and he is among the favorites to win this tournament with 8/1 odds. Watney has been playing well as of late too, but this is his first showing in 2011 and you can expect a little bit of rust from someone that isn’t quite as established.

For Vegas, he is coming off his first win and is still a rookie, so I expect him to take a step back this week and struggle after riding the high of his first tour win. Woodland finished second and is also a rookie, so his motivation will be higher to perform well and especially beat the man who edged him last week.
