Tiger Woods is the betting favorite at 9-1 in Las Vegas to win the Masters next April, but what are his overall odds to win any major in 2019?
Betting on Woods to win one of the majors next year has tightened since his victory in the Tour Championship.
He is a +225 underdog win a major next year, meaning a $100 bet would net a $225 profit. Betting against Tiger is less profitable at -275, meaning one would have to wager $275 to net $100 if Woods goes winless in the Masters, PGA Championship, U.S. Open and British Open.
Here are the major championship prop bets for Woods for 2019. All odds are courtesy of golfodds.com and the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

For those so inclined, the wisest play may be the 5-2 play on Woods to win just one major next year. You get a slightly better payout than betting him to just any major. Even though that number is still a bit lower than common sense would dictate.
It took Woods an entire comeback season to end his PGA Tour winless streak in Atlanta after five years. However, the Tour Championship field was limited to 30 players.
Woods won the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in record-breaking fashion. If he is going to reach that major pinnacle in his comeback, it appears all signs point to next June, when the Open returns to Pebble.
The PGA Championship will be held at Bethpage Black on Long Island in New York in May and the British Open is set for Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland in July.
