Rory McIlroy listed as betting favorite at star-studded Genesis
Rory McIlroy is back to No. 1 in the world rankings, and he’s also topping the list of favorites this week according to oddsmakers in Las Vegas.
McIlroy is one of the headliners of a star-studded field at the Genesis Invitational, hosted by Tiger Woods and featuring nine of the top 10 players in the world. But it’s the Ulsterman who has been installed as an 8/1 betting favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook as he looks to win for the fifth time in the last 12 months. McIlroy is making his fourth career start at Riviera and finished T-4 last year.
Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm are next on the odds list at 10/1, followed by 2017 winner Dustin Johnson. Woods, who has famously never won this event despite making 13 prior appearances, headlines a group at 20/1 that also features former world No. 1 Brooks Koepka.
