Bodog.com Offers British Open Odds

20 July 2006

(PRESS RELEASE) -- With Tiger Woods preparing to defend his title, Bodog.com is setting the betting stage for the 146th British Open Championship as it returns to Royal Liverpool for four rounds beginning Thursday.

Bodog.com has Tiger Woods as a 7/2 favorite to bury his competition, which includes Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh and Ernie Els, who are listed at 17/2, 14/1 and 15/1, respectively.

With interest in betting on golf steadily on the rise, Bodog.com reports significant year-to-year increases of wagers for each PGA event, specifically the British Open and other majors. The presence of recognizable players like Woods is a key reason for the surge in popularity of golf wagering.

Betting interest in this year's British Open is expected to be the highest ever. A wide variety of posted odds allow bettors to wager on head-to-head-to-head matchups for each individual round. There are also a number of intriguing proposition wagers, such as "Will there be a Hole-in-One during the British Open Championship?"

"Creating ways to build on last year's explosive interest in the British Open has been paramount for the bookmakers leading up to this weekend," says Calvin Ayre, Founder and CEO of Bodog.com. "We have created an incredible list of wagering opportunities to give our players the opportunity to fully experience each round of the Open Championship."

In addition to winning the tournament, Bodog.com bookmakers have Tiger heavily favored to win his first 3-Ball match up:

Tiger Woods -265

Shingo Katayama +315

Nick Faldo +590
