With no PGA event this week, it was a perfect time for “The Match III”. This is the third edition of the popular event that has been very entertaining in the past. For this “The Match”, it will be former NFL QB Peyton Manning and NBA star Stephen Curry teaming up against PGA pro Phil Mickelson and the ever-popular Charles Barkley.

Good news for golf bettors, this event can be wagered on at legal sportsbooks offering action on the event. DraftKings Sportsbook already has odds posted, and just released a series of props for the event as well. Let’s take a look at the odds, props, and more information for “The Match”.


The Match III Odds – Peyton Manning and Steph Curry Favored

As ActionRush’s own Ryan Honey discussed, Curry and Manning are favored in “The Match III”. The favorites are -175 to win, with the only PGA pro playing (Mickelson) being an underdog at +138. That of course, is due to Charles Barkley’s infamous golf game. While it seems odd that the PGA professional is an underdog, Peyton Manning and Stephen Curry are quite good on the course. Here’s a look at the most updated odds:
