Okay MyBookie golf betting enthusiasts, while the PGA Tour isn’t in action this coming weekend, golf fans everywhere will be treated to a fun-filled affair when The Match 3: Champions for Change, gets underway on Friday, November 27 at Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley, Arizona. Let’s take a closer look at this upcoming event so you can bet on their Golf odds.
Golf Betting Preview for The Match 3: Champions for Change
While the first two Champions for Change events featured Tiger Woods Vs Phil Mickelson, The Match 3 will see the legendary Woods sit this one out while NBA superstar and golf aficionado Steph Curry steps in – and no – not to shoot long-range three-pointers. In addition to that, NFL superstar quarterback Tom Brady, who was Mickelson’s partner in The Match II, will also sit this one out while being replaced by NBA Hall-of-Famer and admitted awful golfer, Charles Barkley. The unique, two-on-two Match 3 will air at 3 p.m ET with proceeds going to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Match 3 Champions for Change Odds
Manning and Curry as the betting favorites at -150 while Mickelson and Barkley are +125 underdogs. While the previous Match 2 event was split between nine holes of four-ball competition and nine holes of modified alternate-shot, play, the Match 3 is set to be an entire alternate shot competition. That means each player will tee off and then the players will swap balls for the second shot. For example, both Manning and Curry will tee off, but Manning’s second shot will come off of Curry’s drive and vice versa.
Manning, who teamed with Tiger Woods to defeat Mickelson and Tom Brady in a May exhibition. Curry is a near even golfer who has twice played the Korn Ferry Tour’s Ellie Mae Classic on a sponsor exemption, despite missing the cut both times (2017 and 2018).
While Charles Barkley gets ripped often for some of his wild golf swings, he’s actually a pretty decent golfer. Phil Mickelson finished T55 at the recently completed Masters, but missed two cuts in three events just prior to that while finishing 76th in the Zozo Championship in late October. The 50-year-old Mickelson is ranked 64th in the official golf world rankings, but hasn’t finished better than T44 in five events this season. Still, even with Mickelson on his side, Manning and Curry look like the pair to back in this year’s event.
