After a long couple of months, live sporting events are slowly starting to return. The next big one on the calendar is The Match: Champions for Charity.

This golf event pits Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson against each other in a rematch, but with an added twist. Tiger will team up with Peyton Manning, while Phil is paired with Manning's long-time NFL rival Tom Brady.

Sports bettors have wasted no time getting in on the action, and FanDuel Sportsbook has a wide variety of lines available for the event.

Tiger and Manning are heavy -210 favorites to take home a win, but bettors don't seem to be sold on them.

On FanDuel Sportsbook, 64 percent of the moneyline bets (as well as 66 percent of the money on those bets) has come in favor of the underdog duo of Mickelson/Brady.

It's not just the overall betting community that's loving the underdogs either, as the big-money bettors are in on it too, with one FanDuel Sportsbook user risking $2,000 on Brady and Phil.

This event should be a ton of fun, and it's for a great cause with the proceeds going to charity.

If you're looking to get in on the action, FanDuel Sportsbook is offering a special promo as well — if you place a $50 wager before the tournament, you'll receive $5 in free bonus credit for every birdie or eagle hit by the QB in your pair.
