Odds To Win: Arnold Palmer Invitational

The PGA Tour heads 80 miles south, from Tampa to Orlando, for the finale of its three-tournament Florida Swing. Up this week is the 53rd edition of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge.

Tiger Woods Favored at Arnold Palmer Invitational

The field this year at the Arnie’s Place is loaded with top-ranked players and big names, headlined by eight-time API winner Tiger Woods, who is also the heavy favorite this week to capture his first PGA Tour title since 2013.

After nearly winning the Valspar last weekend, Tiger has odds of 6-1, and is the only player in the field with a payoff line in the single digits.

Up next is 2016 tournament champion Jason Day, who enters Bay Hill off three-straight top 5s, including a win at Torrey Pines, and a T2 at Pebble. Day is listed at 12-1, just ahead of World No. 5 Justin Rose, who lost to Woods here in a playoff in 2013. Rose is offered at 16-1.

Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy have odds of 18-1. No one else in the field has better than 20-1 chance.


Bet on the Valspar Championship at Bovada


Reigning Race to Dubai champion Tommy Fleetwood, Hideki Matsuyama, and Alex Noren are next with odds of 22-1, 25-1, and 28-1, respectively.

Defending champion Marc Leishman has a nice payoff at 35-1. The Aussie is ranked No. 16 in the world, and is a proven winner here.
