|Internet sportsbook and casino, BoDog, are offering punters the opportunity to bet on Annika Sorenstam in this years PGA golf tour. Annika is the first woman to compete in the PGA in over fifty years.|
Rob Gillespie, BoDog President: 'The sporting world's attention has been focused on one thing the past week, and that's Annika and how she's going to do against the men.'
BoDog are offering two options for the punters: bets may be placed on where Annika will place in her first round, with over 75 being a 3/2 favourite; whilst current odds on her winning the tournament are 400/1 lonsghot.
Gillespie explains the lack of faith in Annika’s chances to win: 'She's going to be under an intense amount of scrutiny throughout the week. Even if she plays well enough to be in contention, it's unrealistic to think she could handle the pressure associated with winning it all.'
BoDog has been earning itself quite the reputation in the gambling community for offering odds that no one else would offer. Who could forget the opportunity to gamble on which shoe LeBron James would choose? Well now they’ve done it again becoming the first sportsbook in the world to offer odds on Annika.
When Annika plays in the upcoming Colonial Invitational this May it will have been fifty-eight years since a woman has competed against the male dominated PGA. For the rarity alone it might be worth a flutter.
