The odds are out for this year’s edition of The Match and Tom Brady is an underdog. Bryson DeChambeau and Aaron Rodgers have opened as the favorites to win the event, while the team of Brady and Phil Mickelson is a solid underdog.

DeChambeau is coming off a horrible finish to the U.S. Open, but he and Rodgers, who is in a standoff with the Green Bay Packers, are the favorites to win at -140. The odds for Brady, who, of course, just won his seventh Super Bowl, and Mickelson, also just coming off the U.S. Open, are +115.
And the odds are good these four are going to keep taunting each other on social media right up until The Match takes place.
Brady and Mickelson also opened as underdogs ahead of this event in 2020 when they ended up losing to Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning.
The Match is set to go down on July 6 at Moonlight Basin in Montana.
And I would bet Brady will do everything in his power to make sure his pants don’t split on live television again this year.
