Golf Betting on Woods vs. Mickelson at Sports Gambling

Golf betting this week from Augusta will include one of the best and most competitive matchups to bet on golf odds with.

Golf betting fans will have the choice of “Lefty” Phil Mickelson or Tiger Woods for Masters betting action against the golf odds.  The Woods vs. Mickelson rivalry is the most intense in all of golf betting and includes some colorful intangibles.

This past off season, for example, Woods’ caddy remarked on how much he disliked Mickelson, which most fans assumed was also how Woods felt about his rival.  Both golfers are usual favorites against the golf odds and enter golf betting action for the 2009 Masters with plenty of momentum.

Mickelson is currently ranked 2nd in the FedExCup golf betting standings and has three top ten finishes out of seven tournaments played while Woods is coming off a big golf betting victory in his last outing two weeks ago at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.  Woods has finished in the top ten twice in three golf betting events this year.

There are plenty of green jackets in the closets for these two foes.  Mickelson has two green jackets from golf betting wins in the Masters Tournament in 2004 and 2006.  Woods has green jackets from Masters golf betting titles in 1997, 2001, 2002, and 2005.

Mickelson has won the Northern Trust Open and the World Golf Championships-CA this year.  He finished 7th last year in the FedExCup standings and finished 3rd in the FedExCup race in 2007.

Mickelson had a long time reputation for being a choker in the mold of Greg Norman and still has the tendency to wilt under the pressure of later rounds in big events.  Woods, on the other hand, is often a feast or famine proposition.  If he gets off to a good start he usually feeds of that momentum and goes all the way to victory.

If he trails on Sundays, however, he often fails to make up ground, especially at Augusta.  The one thing that Woods has going for him beyond his obvious ability is his intimidating presence, which has served him well in the past against “Lefty”.
