The Match II - Champions for Charity Preview: The bets and where to find them

Woods and Mickelson the rematch.
Woods and Mickelson the rematch.

A week has passed since we were treated to the Driving Relief Skins competition where Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson defeated Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff with all four of them raising a heap of money for charitable causes.

Sunday we're back in Florida for The Match - Champions For Charity event, a rematch between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson who played a shootout for $9m last year with Phil coming out on top.

There's some notable twists for this event however, firstly all money raised will go to charity, this time the match will be played on Tiger Woods's back yard and the players will be joined by two amateur golfers, NFL legends Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.

Woods and Manning are big favourites, best price 13/25 at the time of writing which is an implied probability of 65.8%. Mickelson and Brady are a widely available 7/4, rated only 36% chance of winning.

First time round the match was pay-per-view but Sunday's event will be accessible to satellite and cable subscribers via CNN International on Sky channel 506 on Sky in the UK and 607 on Virgin Media.

With the different format The Match brings different rules and here at BettingOdds.com we'll do our best to explain how exactly the contest will be played out.

What are the rules?

The front nine will be a best ball format, so all four men involved will play their own balls with the best individual score winning the hole. As amateurs the two future NFL Hall of Famers have handicaps that will be used, meaning they'll be working to a 'net' score for the front nine.

Reports suggest Peyton Manning is a slightly more accomplished golfer with a handicap of 6.4 opposed to Brady's 8.1 although there's not a massive amount in it. What it does mean is that both players will receive the same amount of shots on the front nine, a shot apiece at holes three, six and eight, with the extra two shots Brady would normally get from Manning on the back nine. Advantage Manning!

What could be the telling factor is that Manning has been retired a few years and will have been spending much more time on the course than Brady, who is still playing in the NFL and has just moved from the New England Patriots to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, upping sticks and moving to Florida might not be the best prep for this event!

At the turn, the teams will pair up and play a modified alternate shot for the back nine. This means the handicaps are null in void and the emphasis becomes on every shot. Another added twist as the format is slightly modified in that all players will drive off the tee and then the team's will play alternate shots from the ball they choose to keep in play. Got it?

What is the bet?

Last week's skins event saw some prop bets and special markets around but for Sunday's match the bookmakers are having none of it. The betting is straight up, to win, and as mentioned Woods and Manning are big favourites, for good reason.

We've already explained that the two amateurs will be both receiving the same number of shots on the front nine which means it's automatically advantage Manning who'd normally be giving Brady two shots over 18 holes.

The Match is also being played at Tiger Woods home course, Medallist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida. Providing his back isn't playing up Woods will be nice and relaxed and Manning looks the perfect partner. Carving himself out a career after NFL on TV, Manning has the gift of the gab and when it comes to trash talk will laud it over Brady and Mickelson.

Will it be any good?

Although it was great to see some live golf last weekend, it was ultimately a rather frustrating and soulless experience for the viewer. Constant ad breaks will once again be in play on Sunday but here's hoping they let the players do more of the talking.

With all four golfers mic'd up in the Driving Relief Skins, it was hugely frustrating having to listen to the commentator team jabbering on and talking over them for the most part. Then, if that wasn't bad enough they broadcast phone calls into the show from Bill Murray, who seems to be the 'funny' golfing go to in the US and viewers reached for the remote when Donald Trump rang in to pitch for re-election!

Will CNN take a different approach? The 'banter' should be an improvement but with Charles Barkley in the commentator booth you already fear it will detract from the event. The addition of Justin Thomas as an on-course commentator could bring some insight into proceedings but we're not holding out much hope.

The lack of any female involvement caused rightful consternation last weekend and is sure to do so again. Although the likes of Manning and Brady will bring in the numbers for TV, it would have been great to involve some of the top women golfers as well.
