Former U.S. Open champion Bryson DeChambeau and future Pro Football Hall of Fame QB Aaron Rodgers are backed by oddsmakers to win golf’s newest version of “The Match” Tuesday night.

Six-time major champion Phil Mickelson and seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady will match sticks against Rodgers and DeChambeau at Moonlight Basin in Montana in the PGA Tour’s latest concoction of charity, golf and football. Action for the event is now available at several top sportsbooks. The duo of Rodgers and DeChambeau are solid favorites. They are -177 at DraftKings sportsbook. Lefty and the GOAT are +130 underdogs at the same site.

Mickelson and Brady were golf betting underdogs when they teamed up for charity in the spring of 2020, losing to Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods in Florida. DeChambeau and Rodgers are first-timers in the event.

A Field Full Of Drama

DeChambeau, who was +500 to win the U.S. Open heading into the final round, could not get away from Torrey Pines fast enough after shooting a 77 on Sunday. He led by one after eight holes. His well-thought-out plans for back-to-back U.S. Open titles then faded into the Pacific Ocean mist. None of his calculated bombs could find the fairway. The guy who brought golf-aerodynamics and sabermetrics to an unheard-of level on the PGA Tour was left pointing the finger at “bad break after bad break.” His style, of course, had nothing to do with back-to-back bogeys on 11 and 12. Or that major-ending double on 13. He even added a quadruple-bogey eight on the tournament’s penultimate hole.

Rodgers won this third NFL MVP award in 2020 but remains in the midst of a Cold War with Packers management. His future with the team is far from certain. Rodgers remains among the top picks to be MVP this upcoming season. He is the second choice behind Patrick Mahomes and sits at +1000 at PointsBet sportsbook to repeat in the latest NFL MVP odds.

Brady won Super Bowl 55 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in February, becoming the oldest QB to win a Super Bowl since 41-year-old Tom Brady beat the LA Rams in Super Bowl 53.

Mickelson, 51, became the oldest major champion with his victory in the PGA Championship in the spring. Mickelson settled at +5000 to win the U.S. Open after his improbable win at age 50 in the year’s second major.

However, Lefty returned to earth at Torrey Pines in the U.S. Open and was unable again to complete his career Grand Slam after being as high as +12500 at some sports betting sites before his PGA Championship triumph.

Eighteen holes for charity alongside Brady, with Charles Barkley chirping in his ear, should be a lot less stressful.
