It has been a quarter-century since Medalist Golf Club was a part of a golf telecast, but the famed South Florida course will host “The Match: Champions for Charity” on Sunday at 2 p.m. ET. Tiger Woods will pair with former NFL great Peyton Manning against the team of Phil Mickelson and six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady in the charity event, which will generate a $10 million donation for coronavirus relief efforts.
Woods and Manning will battle Mickelson and Brady in fourball on the front nine and modified alternate shots on the back nine. While Mickelson won in 22 holes against Woods in 2018, Woods and Manning are -190 money line favorites (risk $190 to win $100) in the current Woods vs. Mickelson odds. Mickelson and Brady are the underdogs, going off at +170 (risk $100 to win $170) at William Hill. Along with the main match play, plenty of Tiger vs. Phil prop bets are available. Before you lock in your own plays, be sure to see the top Tiger vs. Phil picks and predictions from SportsLine’s proven golf expert, Mike McClure.
McClure built SportsLine’s renowned golf prediction model, which has nailed two of the last three majors entering the weekend. The model predicted Gary Woodland’s first career major championship at the U.S. Open even though he wasn’t the favorite entering the weekend. The model also called Brooks Koepka’s historic victory at the 2019 PGA Championship, predicting he’d hold his lead in the home stretch.
In all, McClure’s advanced computer model has nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. And already this season, the model called Justin Thomas winning the CJ Cup, Rory McIlroy taking down the WGC-HSBC Champions and Viktor Hovland earning his first career PGA Tour victory at the Puerto Rico Open. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Now, with sportsbooks taking bets on Tiger vs. Phil 2, McClure has scoured the odds, revealed his top prop bets, and picked a winner. You can only see who to bet, and which props are a must-back, at SportsLine.
