Steph Curry Well Down Ellie Mae Classic Odds

Steph Curry Ellie Mae Classic Odds at Bovada

It is not quite NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan trying to make it as a baseball player with the Chicago White Sox, but Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors will give golf another try this year as a massive underdog on this week’s Ellie Mae Classic odds. Curry received a sponsor exemption to tee off in the event at TPC Stonebrae for the second year in a row, and he is listed at +100000 to finish first.

To say Curry is a long shot might be an understatement, as he is one of the last golfers on the betting board along with Matt Williams, Daniel Mazziotta, Rodolfo Cazaubon, and Frank Lickliter II. Patrick Sullivan is officially the longest shot on the board at +200000. Last year, Curry shot an 8-over-par 148 with dual rounds of 74 to miss the cut in front of record crowds.

The 30-year-old point guard is a 5-handicap golfer and has participated in many celebrity tournaments after competing in the sport as a freshman and sophomore at Charlotte Christian School before going on to star in basketball at Davidson College. Though still an amateur golfer, his debut in a pro tournament at the Ellie Mae Classic a year ago went much better than expected, topping Tony Romo’s first event.

In addition, there are several more prop bets you can wager on regarding the two-time NBA MVP and three-time league champion. Curry missed the cut last year by 11 shots and ended up tied for 148th in a field of 156 golfers. If you think Curry will make the cut this time, you can get +750 or pay a hefty price of -1600 if you believe he will be sitting at home on the weekend for the second straight year.

 

Eagle Payout on Steph Curry Golf Odds?

Perhaps the most realistic Yes prop bet involving Curry though is him getting an eagle at +450. Curry had three birdies in the opening round last year, so it is not out of the question for him to pull off that feat. However, No is still a heavy favorite at -750.

Other Steph Curry golf odds on the board include where Curry will be at different stages of the Ellie Mae Classic. Is it possible for Curry to lead the tournament after the first round of play? While doubtful, you can get odds of +50000 that he will be the leader following the first round.

If Curry does make the cut and finishes out play over the weekend, there are a couple more props you can wager on that could be in play with regards to where he ends up. A Top-10 finish is worth +15000 according to oddsmakers with a Top-5 finish coming in at +25000.

Of course the caveat to betting on these two props is that you need to have the confidence to wager on them before the tournament tees off on Thursday. Regardless, it could be an exciting weekend in Northern California if he is still playing on Saturday.
