Bet 2010 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Odds

The Favorite

Woods is a 9/2 favorite to win according to oddsmakers from online sports book Other short odds to win are Phil Mickelson (12/1), Lee Westwood (12/1), Rory McIlroy (20/1), and Padraig Harrington (20/1). Woods has won this event an amazing seven times, including the 2009 tournament. He has taken the title in four of the last five years, but he is still winless in 2010 and has just two top five finishes on the year.

Past Winners

Aside from Woods, the only other golfers to win this tournament are Vijay Singh, Stewart Cink, Darren Clarke, and Craig Parry. Singh was the most recent winner, as he took the 2008 title. Singh has 80/1 odds to win this year while Cink comes in with 60/1 odds.

World Rankings

Woods continues to have his hold on the top spot in the world rankings but Mickelson and Westwood are close behind and could make a considerable jump with a win this weekend. Aside from the top three, not many others are really close. Steve Stricker is currently fourth, but he sits 2.4 points behind Woods, which is a major deficit in the world rankings.

The 2010 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational starts on August 5 this year and runs through August 8. The event is played at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio.
