NJ betting options for The Match

The NJ sports betting crowd will see several pages of potential wagers. Match line, or moneyline, is as basic as it gets.

The line on Woods and Manning is -225 while Mickelson and Brady is +180. Bettors who place a $20 wager on one of these pairings will earn the free live bet.

There are props and hole specials, too.

Here is a small sampling of what DraftKings has on the board:

  • Leader after 15 holes
  • First to go 2 up
  • Hole in one in the tournament (yes +5000 is the only option)
  • Hole on which The Match will be won

And here are the odds for  which team will win the first hole:

  • Tie -137
  • Woods/Manning +250
  • Mickelson/Brady +335

Breaking down The Match betting so far

DraftKings is tracking the betting action leading up to the match.

As of Tuesday, Woods and Manning had 53% of the handle while Mickelson and Brady were getting 54% of the bets.

Switching gears to the longest tee shot, Brady is generating 61% of the handle, but only 27% of the wagers. Woods is getting 34% of the bets.

Manning/Woods are attracting 89% of the handle for the back nine winner versus 9% for Mickelson/Brady. The other 2% has money down on a tie.

But no matter what the final tally is, Woods, Manning, Mickelson, and Brady are playing for COVID-19 charities.

So as the pro sports calendar slowly starts to fill up, The Match is an occasion where everyone involved will come out a winner.

This includes DraftKings Sportsbook customers taking advantage of a free bet.
