Genesis Invitational Odds & Favorites 2024: Tiger Woods Returns, Scheffler Remains Man to Beat

Must read

Another PGA Tour Signature Event follows Nick Taylor’s win in the WM Phoenix Open and we’re breaking down the Genesis Invitational odds from our best golf betting sites with Scottie Scheffler as the betting favorite while Tiger Woods returns to competitive golf.

Tiger Woods returns to a truly competitive golf event for the first time since making the cut but withdrawing due to injury from the 2023 Masters. He’s the playing host of this week’s Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club.

Woods tied for 45th in this event last year, in what was his first competitive outing since the 2022 British Open. He’s a sizable long shot in this strong 70-man field.

Scottie Scheffler remains the betting favorite, as he’s been each week he’s teed it up this year while still occupying the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR). Scheffer’s given a slight edge over Rory McIlroy and Viktor Hovland by the PGA Tour odds from our best sports betting sites.

Who is the Genesis Invitational favorite?

Scottie Scheffler

Best odds: +750 via DraftKings

Scheffler is the favorite again this week with an implied win probability as high as 12.50% in the 70-man field, based on the +700 odds from bet365.

While there’s a little more value in the slightly longer odds from DraftKings, long-shot winners have remained the theme of the 2024 PGA Tour season, and there are still plenty of other top golfers in this field for Scheffler to be carrying such short odds.

The No. 1 golfer in the world tied for third in the WM Phoenix Open after being tied for the lead for a period on Sunday afternoon at TPC Scottsdale. While there is no better ball-striker on the planet right now, putting continues to hold Scheffler back from what feels like an inevitable run of dominance.

He’s a pass for me at these odds in this field.

Tiger Woods’ Genesis Invitational odds

Best odds: +20000 via bet365

Tiger’s +20000 odds to win the Genesis Invitational from bet365 represent an implied win probability of 0.50%, according to our odds converter. Even a 1-in-70 chance with the small field would equate to a 1.43% chance if all was equal. 

But all isn’t equal, and Scheffler is a sizable favorite for well-earned reasons. Woods is among the lowest-ranked golfers in the field at No. 893 in the OWGR.

Sportsbook Review will dive further into Woods’ Genesis Invitational odds through the week, but his outright odds draw a pass.
