The World Golf Championships will be hosting the 2010 Bridgestone Invitational this weekend the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. The tournament, which beings tomorrow August 4th and will wrap up on Sunday August 8th, features a load of the world’s top golfers and guarantees to be a very exciting weekend of golf.
Many eyes will be on Tiger Woods this weekend, as he has fared quite well at the Bridgestone Invitational over the past years. Tiger has participated in the Bridgestone 10 times and has walked away with the title in seven of those tournaments. On top of that, Tiger has never finished lower than fifth on the South Course in any tournament he has played at the Firestone. Tiger enters the weekend as the favorite by quite a bit, as he is listed with just +445 odds. And by no surprise, he is followed by Lee Westwood and Phil Mickelson, who are both coming in at +1400 odds to win the Bridgestone.

Bridgestone Invitational Betting Predictions:
Tiger Woods (+445) – Even with the very low odds placed on Tiger this weekend he is hard to overlook. Woods is extremely comfortable with the Firestone course, and won this event seven times to date. If Tiger wants to prove that he is the best golfer in the world he will need to step up this weekend, and anything short of a victory will be disappointing for him I’m sure. With the PGA championship around the corner look for Tiger to be in the hunt come late Sunday.
Lee Westwood (+1400) – Westwood may over take Woods for top golfer in the world if he can win this tournament and Tiger isn’t sitting too close to him. Westwood has been impressive and consistent all season, with a St Jude Classic titel in June, and second place finishes in The Masters and The Open Championship. Westwood is due for a big win and might be able to pull it off here at the Bridgestone Invitational. At +1400, a wager on Westwood has some value.
Jeff Overton (+8500) – Overton played excellent golf last weekend at the Greenbrier Class, but fell one stroke short to champion Stuart Appleby, who shot an 11-under 59 on the final round to take the title. Overton is a longshot bet, and after a performance like we saw last weekend I think he has a chance to be in there come Sunday. Overton seems to have found his groove, and will be my longshot bet for this years Bridgestone Invitiational.
