Mickelson is +1035 on Pinny to win NTO
Luke Donald is +1464 on Pinny to win NTO
The full tournament matchup right now is Mickelson +108 v. Donald
Am I missing something here why Mickelson isnt a large bet?
It's because of variance.
Betting a guy to win a tournament means you need him to get hot, go low, and be able to finish under pressure.
Betting a guy in a matchup means you need them to play steady, make the cut, and hope their opponent doesn't have a huge finish.
