Before placing Bitcoin sports bets on the golf event, let’s find out NitrogenSports’ take on the odds and which golfer will win.
2018 Genesis Open Odds
A handful of Bitcoin sports betting websites logged Dustin Johnson as the favorite with +500 odds, Jordan Spieth follows with +1,200 odds, Rory McIlroy with 1,200 odds, Justin Thomas with +2,000 odds, Paul Casey with +2,200 odds, Phil Mickelson with +2,200 odds, Tommy Fleetwood with +2,800 odds, Chez Reavie with +3,500 odds, Marc Leishman with +3,500 odds, and to round up the top-ten, Tiger Woods with +3,500 odds.
Woods And The Riviera Curse?
Tiger Woods, the 14-time major champion, makes the Genesis Open his second start of the season. Woods last played the event in 1999 when he finished as a runner-up to Ernie Els. Woods also falls short during the Genesis Open, as he has not won the event after 10 tries. Is this year the time Woods breaks this streak and get the win?
Top dog Dustin Johnson returns and defends his title after a decisive five-stroke run that lifted him to become the number one golfer in world rankings. DJ, in the four times he participated in the Riviera, has not finished lower than the fourth place. His success at the Genesis Open began a three-start winning streak that ushered him to the Masters.
Who do you think will take home the 2018 Genesis Open title? With the many Bitcoin golf odds awaiting your bets, if you hit right, you could take home a big payday in this event.
Candidates Who May Spark An Upset
Meanwhile, a surprise candidate, Charlie Hoffman, although with +10,000 odds, can be considered a longshot. But Hoffman is a serious player who could make a run at the title and possibly force an upset, which makes a great payday for adventurous bettors. Hoffman currently is currently performing well this season after finishing in the top-10 of both Hero World Challenge and QBE Shootout.
Another possible golfer with a chance to cause an upset, Bubba Watson, already won the Genesis Open twice before, Although he barely even reached the top-40 in the odds, he’s someone to be taken seriously as he had won the title before.
