The Match Tiger/Peyton vs Phil/Brady Odds & Analysis

The Match Tiger/Peyton vs Phil/Brady Odds & Analysis

Get ready for a super-sized MATCH this year with Tiger Woods teaming up with Peyton Manning and Phil Mickelson teaming up with Tom Brady for a made for betting event.

Tiger/Peyton Are -200 Betting Favorites To Win

Tiger. Woods spent the past couple of years perfecting a new swing. He was ready to unleash at the Masters in April. Woods must feel he can win. If he didn’t, he’d have put the kibosh on this before it got legs. Also, Tiger is motivated. Phil beat him in the last head-to-head. 

But that’s not the only reason to like Tiger. Peyton is a good golfer. That’s the real reason these two are favored over Lefty and Terrific Tom.

Phil/Brady’s Moneyline Betting Odds Are +160 To Win

Phil has history on his side. A couple of years ago, Tiger was favored over Lefty in the Match at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas. After 18-holes, the pair were tied. Mickelson beat Woods in extra holes. If Phil beat Tiger once, he can beat him again. 

Not only that, but like Peyton, Tom is also a good golfer. Brady won’t hurt Phil’s chances of beating Tiger in a repeat. That’s all a pro can ask for when they pair with an amateur.

The Match Tiger/Peyton vs Phil/Brady Betting Analysis

On paper, Tiger and Peyton look like obvious winners.  Peyton shoots around 80. He’s a member of both Augusta National and Cherry Hills in Denver. Manning also has a big advantage over Brady. While Tom has played in the NFL the last few seasons, Peyton has had a chance to work on his game in between Nationwide Insurance commercial shoots.

Manning won’t be the problem if Tiger and Peyton lose. We expect Peyton to shoot around an 80. That’s what he’ll shoot no matter the course. For this team, Tiger could be the problem.

If the tournament happens at a Florida course, then, yes, Tiger has an advantage. But 

Tiger must play up to his best. He doesn’t often go into a tournament cold and perform well. Not only that but before the shutdown Tiger wasn’t 100% sure he’d be ready for the Masters. As crazy as it sounds, Mickelson might be in better golf shape. 

Last July, Mickelson decided to change his lifestyle. He ate better and exercised. Results didn’t happen until the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am this year where Phil finished third. He missed the cut in the next couple of tournaments. Then came the sports shutdown.

The missed cuts shouldn’t worry you. Mickelson doesn’t play for a paycheck. He plays to get ready for the big tournaments. If this happens, Lefty will be at his best. 

Like we wrote above, don’t worry about Terrific Tom. The GOAT won’t allow Manning to outplay him in a game of hopscotch. Why would he allow him to outplay him on the golf course? The odds say Tiger and Peyton are the favorites. But Lefty and Terrific Tom are the team to back.   

Most 1st Round Picks By College Odds

Most 1st Round Picks By College Odds

Its draft week and time to find out which college will produce the most 1st round picks. Keep reading for the latest NFL draft odds and analysis.

Which College Will Have The Most 1st Round Picks?

Alabama Crimson Tide
O 5½ +115
U 5½ -145

5 Alabama players appear destined for the first round. Those 5 players are OT Jedrick Wills, wide receivers Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III, corner Trevon Diggs, and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Tua has dropped off some team’s draft boards. But the Patratis are supposed to be hot for the Bama signal-caller. Safety Xavier McKinney could get the Round 1 call.

Auburn Tigers
O 1½ +260
U 1½ -350

Derrick Brown, a defensive lineman, should be a Top 10 pick. Brown is 6’ 5” and 326 lbs. He had 55 tackles and 4 sacks last season. Edge Marlon Davidson is another who might get the first round phone call.

Clemson Tigers
O 1½ -260
U 1½ +200

Most mock draft have linebacker Isaiah Simmons in the Top 5. Simmons dominated with 107 tackles, 8 sacks, and 3 interceptions. Isaiah is 6’ 4” and 238 lbs. Few teams in the NFL couldn’t use a player with those physical gifts. Corner A.J. Terrell is another player that could go in Round 1. Some believe Tee Higgins might get the call. But the wide receiver had an awful 40-time.

Georgia
O 1½ -155
U 1½ +125

Tackle Andrew Thomas is the sure-fire Georgia Bulldog to go in the first round. Thomas can play left tackle or right tackle. Even if a team has a strong line, he’s a player they’d consider drafting for depth. Both running back D’Andre Swift and the other tackle, Isaiah Wilson, have gotten some first round mentions.

LSU
O 5½ +270
U 5½ -360

Quarterback Joe Burrow will be the first player taken off the board. Edge K’Lavon Chaisson, linebacker Patrick Queen, corner Kristian Fulton, and wide receiver Justin Jefferson are also possible first round picks. Center Lloyd Cushenberry could sneak into Round 1. So could safety Grant Delpit.

Ohio State
O 2½ +425
U 2½ -610

Two of the picks are obvious. DE Chase Young might be a once in a lifetime player. The 6’ 5” and 264 lbs. player provided 16 ½ sacks last season against some of the best offensive lineman in the country. Corner Jeffrey Okudah is another who could have a hall of fame type career. Okudah is a shutdown corner. He won’t last past pick 5. Another player getting limited discussion as a first round pick is running back J.K. Dobbins.

Oklahoma
O 2 -150
U 2 +120

The two definite Round 1 picks per most draft analysts are wide receiver CeeDee Lamb and linebacker Kenneth Murray. No other Oklahoma player has received much attention for going in the first round.

NFL Draft Position Over-Under Odds By Player

NFL Draft Position Over-Under Odds By Player

The 2020 NFL Draft is days away and keep reading for my analysis on the what position each of the top players will be drafted at.

NFL Draft Position Over-Under Odds

EDGE Chase Young: 2½
O +650
U -1175

Washington coach Ron Rivera loves defensive players (a la Luke Kuechly in Carolina) like Young. With Dwayne Haskins and Kyle Allen under center, it is impossible D.C. picks anyone else.

QB Tua Tagovailoa: 3½
O -260
U +200

The first team that wants a quarterback after the Bengals are the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins have pick 5.

QB Justin Herbert: 5½
O -150
U +120

Philip Rivers bolted to Indianapolis. The L.A. Chargers could do worse than to grab Herbert with pick 6.

CB Jeff Okudah: 4½
O +100
U -130

The Detroit Lions, who pick third, need help at cornerback. Okudah is a shutdown corner.

LB Isaiah Simmons: 7½
O +260
U -350

The Giants’ defense is awful. They pick fourth. Simmons can rush passers, stuff the run, or backpedal into coverage because he’s a converted safety.

DL Derrick Brown: 8½
O +130
U -160

Carolina, with the seventh pick, are a good fit for Brown. The Panthers need run stopping help now that Luke Kuechly retired.

OL Mekhi Becton: 8½
O -140
U +110

The league flagged Becton’s drug test at the NFL Combine. That might affect what Jacksonville does with pick 9. The Jags could use Becton’s athleticism, though. That might trump the failed drug test.

OL Andrew Thomas: 10½
O -160
U +130

Thomas might be the perfect fit for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs have pick 14 and must protect Tom Brady.

OL Jedrick Wills: 8½
O +110
U -140

Arizona will consider Wills at 8. Jedrick can play multiple positions along the offensive line. Protecting QB Kyler Murray is a priority.

WR Jerry Jeudy: 11½
O -145
U +115

Oakland, picking twelfth, must find a capable wide receiver for Derek Carr to throw too. Jeudy runs routes better than any WR in the draft.

WR CeeDee Lamb: 12½
O +115
U -145

NYJ has pick 11. Although the Jets need a lot of pieces, the priority is to grab a wide receiver for QB Sam Darnold.

QB Jordan Love: 19½
O -140
U +110

New England must find a quarterback. The Patriots first Round 1 pick is 23. Love has the right intangibles to be a star in the NFL.

DL Javon Kinlaw: 15½
O +170
U -215

San Francisco DL DeForest Buckner went to the Indianapolis Colts. The 49ers could draft Kinlaw 13 to replace Buckner.

WR Henry Ruggs III: 13½
O -105
U -125

Ruggs III is a good fit for Denver at pick 15. Henry ran his 40 in 4.27. The Broncos have a legit WR1 in Courtland Sutton. Ruggs could be the speedy WR2.

CB CJ Henderson: 16½
O +215
U -275

Dallas needs a cornerback. They’ve got the pick 17. Henderson offers value at Dallas’ point in the draft.

EDGE Klavon Chaisson: 16½
O -145
U +115

Atlanta, picking 16, is a good fit. The Falcons signed Dante Fowler. But Vic Beasley is gone and the ATL was the worst team in the NFL at sacking quarterbacks last season.

LB Kenneth Murray: 19½
O -300
U +240

At pick 21, the Philadelphia Eagles will look for linebacker help unless one of the top 3 wide receivers are on the board. Murray fits at 21.

WR Justin Jefferson: 21½
O +100
U -130

Minnesota traded Stefon Diggs to Buffalo. The Vikings pick 22. They should grab Jefferson.

CB Kristian Fulton: 24½
O -125
U -105

The Raiders have 2 first round picks, 12 and 19. They need a WR and a CB. They can address the corner issue by grabbing Fulton at 19.

OL Josh Jones: 25½
O -135
U +105

Green Bay is always looking out for the offensive line. The Packers pick 30. There’s a chance Jones is around at 30.

LB Patrick Queen: 25½
O +105
U -135

Queen is undersized. The Saints won’t mind, though. 3 of New Orleans linebackers are free agents after the 2020 season. The Saints drafting Queen at 24 makes sense.

S Xavier McKinney: 25½
O +145
U -175

Miami’s third pick is 26. If McKinney’s around, they’ll draft him.

EDGE Yetur Gross-Matos: 27½
O +140
U -170

Seattle picks 27. The Seahawks must rebuild their defense to contend. Gross-Matos is a good pick at 27.
