DraftKings Sportsbook Favors Brady, Rodgers

Both Brady and Rodgers (-190) have played in past versions of The Match, with Rodgers on the winning end in July 2021. Brady last played in the second version of The Match, where he and Phil Mickelson lost to Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods. Rodgers previously matched up with Bryson DeChambeau, which gave us this contentious and admittedly awkward bit.

Both of the vets are good golfers – experienced in these televised settings – with Brady posting an eight-stroke handicap and Rodgers an impressive five.

Mahomes and Allen (+160) are newcomers to the contest, but Allen has roughly a handicap equal to Brady (around eight), per the USGA GHIN handicap system. Mahomes doesn’t have a listed handicap, but he’s participated in celebrity tournaments before. Recently, he won one of the tournaments, beating out Travis Kelce. The former MVP has also played in the American Century Championship.

Since this is a charity event tailor-made for TV, The Match provides some interesting outcomes. Underdogs are 3-2 outright in the event (Rodgers and DeChambeau were favorites in their win) and neither team boasts a clear golfer advantage. Especially given the unprecedented nature of no pros participating, the outcome could be rather unpredictable.

As of Monday, May 30, Brady and Rodgers were huge public favorites, soaking in most of the bets and handle (per data provided by DraftKings Sportsbook).

The Match 6 Format And Scoring

Each time this contest is played out, it offers a different set of rules. This time around, the four quarterbacks will play 12 holes of match play, with each hole win counting for one point, a tie counting for a half point, and a loss counting for zero points.

They will play modified alternate-shot, meaning both players will hit the same ball, alternating shots, but both players will get a chance to tee off. The one who hit the best tee shot will hit first and then alternate shots throughout the hole.

The winning purse hasn’t been made public, but past events have offered amounts well in the millions. Winnings go to charity, typically at the choosing of the winner.
