After months of anticipation, The Match is finally here. At 3:00 p.m. EST today, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will take on one another as well as Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas, NV.
And if you're one of the many who have purchased the pay-per-view, you might as well try to make some money yourself by betting a couple of prop bets, available on FanDuel Sportsbook. I mean, Tiger and Phil are even making prop bets on The Match. So here are three of the best ones you should place a wager on.
3. Phil Mickelson to Win Hole 1 (+300)

Since Phil was so confident that he would birdie the first hole, why not take him to win it? And get 3-to-1 odds. While Woods and Mickelson have $200,000 riding on the outcome of the first hole, putting a few bucks down on Phil taking an early lead in the Showdown at Shadow Creek could be a profitable move. Just be aware that Tiger is favored at +200, but according to FanDuel Sportsbook, the most likely outcome is a tie at -110.
2. Hole 5 Closest to the Pin: Tiger Woods (-125)

Woods is the favorite for this hole prop bet and you have a 50-50 shot of winning it. Both Tiger and Phil will tee off on the 5th and whoever comes closer to the pin can win you money. We all know that Tiger is the more accurate of the two off the tee, so it would make sense to bet on him, but since they'll be using irons on the 145-yard, Par 3, Phil at even money could work too.

You can also bet, not if, but when Tiger will win The Match. He's the favorite with -195 odds (Phil is +165), and if Tiger happens to take it on the 15th hole, you'll be seven-and-a-half times richer than whatever you bet on this prop. Tiger could win at any point between the 10th hole (+25000) to 18 or later (+300), but the 15th seems like a nice spot to land.
