The Odds Favor DeChambeau
Bryson DeChambeau will be making his second appearance on The Match as he paired up with Aaron Rodgers to go against Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson. Online sportsbooks may value his experience in the event as he’s been labeled as a slight favorite over Brooks Koepka.

- Brooks Koepka EVEN
In order to bet on the event, it’s important to know the rules. They will not be playing the full 18-hole course as they will only use 12 of the holes and will compete in match play. This means that rather than totaling the number of strokes for all the holes combined, you get a point for each hole that you score better than the opponent.
It's also important to know the backstory of DeChambeau and Koepka. There’s a long and convoluted history between the two not liking each other. However, the two have seemingly ended their beef with one another as they allegedly bonded during the Ryder Cup as a part of Team USA which ultimately resulted in The Match 5 becoming a real thing.
So Who Will Win?
As is the case with every other match in this series, it’s not your typical handicapping process. However, it’s a bit easier to break down DeChambeau and Koepka’s games than it is Brady and Rodgers’. At the end of the day, it’s two top-ranked golfers in the world playing on a course that’s never been used for the PGA Tour.

It’s a guessing game.
So far golf betting sites haven’t been too good at predicting the winners of these events as underdogs have won in two of the previous four matches. Given that the two are playing for charity and it’s more entertainment than it is a competition, taking the underdog, regardless of who it is, likely carries more value as it seems to truly be a coin toss.
How To Watch
The Match 5 is set to take place on Friday and start at 4 p.m. EST. Multiple channels will have coverage of the event including TNT, TBS and TruTV.
