With the 2020 Farmers Insurance Open all ready to tee off, many high-profile golfers have joined the field of competitors.
The 2020 Farmers Insurance Open Overview
On Thursday, January 24, the Torrey Pines will once again host the PGA Tour 2020 Farmers Insurance Open, the inaugural first even in this year’s PGA Tour, and first important event of the year for competitors in what is arguably the most important golf tournament in January.
The event is important for a number of reasons and not least of all because Tiger Woods, the legendary golfer, is returning to seek his 83rd PGA Tour victory and set a new record that golfers long after him will have to aspire to.
To Woods, of course, the Farmers Insurance Open is not exactly a new challenge. He has already won it seven times and he also clinched a 2008 U.S. Open victory, to top his stellar track record off. Here is a look at the latest odds.

One look at the latest odds tells a story to tell. Woods (+1000) is once again in the top potential finishers and this is not by surprise. His track record at the Farmers’ is something friend nor foe cannot ignore for long.
Not surprisingly, he is listed in the first three most likely golfers to seal the title. Of course, this is hardly the reason to expect success, and there are many talented golfers, albeit the odds wouldn’t suggest so quite openly.
Jon Rahm and Rory Mcllroy are clearly in the lead boosted by their most recent performance. With some 7,698 yards to cover in South Course and another 7,258 yards in North Course on Thursday, there is definitely plenty of opportunity to see some of the underdogs climb back up to the top.
Pinning your hopes on Woods could also cost you a bit, as Woods, the amazing golfer he is, plays in fits and starts. His last victory at Farmers Insurance Open was back in 2013. He is 44 now and that definitely puts a bit of a strain, even if Woods appears to be in good shape.
However, numbers don’t lie and he finished 20th or worse in all tournaments from 2016 through 2019, making for a rather poor showing. He seems confident about this year’s title and the odds seem to back him up, but we wouldn’t advice you to bet on Woods.
Gary Woodland: The Longshot Underdog
Speaking of 2020 Farmers Insurance Open value betting opportunities, one golfer you might want to look into is Gary Woodland. What is to say that Woodland (+2500) would make it anywhere near the placement that is necessary?
Well, not much to be fair. According to predictive modeling used by SportsLine, the golfer is right on track to aim for the title. Of course, this is all based on AI, but if an AI gives Woodland a fairly decent chance of emerging as a strong contender, it might just be worth looking into it as well.
In our opinion, betting on Woodland as an underdog may be better value for your money than backing Woods.
