The 2013 Tampa Bay Championship is set to begin on Thursday, and Adam Scott is the early betting favorite.
Scott, fresh off his final round 64 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, is a 12/1 favorite according to Bovada. Scott led last week's field in total driving, a skill which could give him an advantage on the Copperhead course at the Innisbrook Resort. Looking at the prop bets, Scott is +300 to finish in the top five and a 20/1 favorite to hold the lead after the first round.
Behind Scott, Luke Donald, Matt Kuchar and Sergio Garcia are tied for the second-best odds at 16/1. Donald and Garcia are also +300 to finish in the top five, while Kuchar is +450. Webb Simpson at 18/1 and Jason Dufner at 20/1 round out the top five. Donald, Kuchar and Garcia are also 20/1 favorites to lead after the first round.
Jim Furyk sits just behind the leaders at 22/1, and may be the best bet for the money. Furyk has a nice track record at the Tampa Bay Championship, including a win in 2010 and a playoff loss last year. He is +550 to finish the event in the top five.
