Tiger Woods Bet: Largest Betting House in Ireland Makes Book on Which Advertiser Will Drop Woods Next–Guess Who’s the Favorite at 7 to 4

Dec 15, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, the largest bookmaker in Ireland (it’s legal there) is taking bets as to which of the companies that Tiger Woods has endorsements  will drop him next.

Leading the pack is AT&T at 7/4, meaning that if you bet $4 you’d win $7 if AT&T drops Woods.

Next is General Mills at 9/4, Gillettte at 3/1 and American Express at 6/1. (Gillette has already said it’s taking a hiatus from running any Woods’ commercials, but has not dropped him as an endorser.)

The two least likely companies to drop Woods, according to Paddy Power’s betting line, are Nike and golf ball maker Titlelist, with odds of 33/1 and 40/1 respectively.

These numbers are from an article at the Irish news Web site Irish Central.

According to the article, "Netjets, the private plane hire company, are 12/1 and Golf Digest  is 16/1 to split from Tiger, with Upper Deck trading cards at 10/1. Paddy Power says it will pay out whenever there is an official announcement from the company that they are dropping Woods."

Accenture has already ended its commercial relationship with Woods. To read Open Mike blogger Chuck Ross’s comments about that split, click here.

  1. The companies that are currently endorsing Tiger should wait it out and stick with him. Remember, it is not about making him rich, he’s already rich. It is about how the consumer, how good the product looks on Tiger, and how we would want the product to look on us as the consumer. A commercial is a commercial. So what! The truth is when we go inside a retailers we are going to look to see how the product is displayed and buy it from that. So really it is Tiger that is doing the Endorsing. Companies need Tiger’s Endorsement, Not the other way around. Both knows each wins when they work together. Until their issue is resolved, I am Endorsing the Russell Simmons Prepaid Visa “BLACK CARD”. It is like an investment to myself in a sense that I can earn money in activated referrals. The money I earn in referrals with this card is way more than what my other bank is able to give me in interest on money sitting in my savings account. This is the card I use when purchasing online golf memorabilia and from the money I earned just telling others to do the same. To inquire, visit http://www.rushcard.com
    Use Referral Code: MARIAGLOVER3 when applying.
