One of the best individual rivalries in football history is to hit the green.
Peyton Manning (and Tiger Woods) against Tom Brady (and Phil Mickelson). The trashy dialogue and conversation between those players will be a must-have television on its own. And besides that, there is golf. But who will have the bragging rights at the end of "The Match: Champions for Charity,quot;?
The initial money is in the pairing of Tiger and Manning. As of Monday, they are the favorites to win at -230: Mickelson and Brady are at +190.

Of course, being favored doesn't necessarily mean you're better. Just ask Tiger, who entered the game in 2018 as a big favorite over Mickelson but lost in additional holes.
Regardless: While the pros are likely to do the heavy lifting in Sunday's competition, both Manning and Brady will be called up multiple times over the course of "The Match," and their game could be the deciding one on who comes out with a win.

By Sports Betting Tell me, Manning has the best disadvantage over Brady: 6.4 to 8.1, respectively. What does that mean? For the numerically inclined, it is a formula number that best measures how well you can play against a person of a different talent level than yours. Here is the formula:

The numbers aside, all you really need to know is that the lower your disability, the better a golfer you will be. In that sense, Manning can be expected to beat Brady by 1 1/2 shots on Sunday, if we go strictly for his downsides. But it's also worth mentioning that "The Match,quot; is, well, match play, not stroke play. No matter what your aggregate scores are at the end of the day, only which team has won the most holes. How will that affect who has the best day?

"It's gotten a lot better," Woods said (via USA TODAY). "When we first played, he was just getting started in the game. But now that he's retired, he can play a lot more golf. It's been great for me to be able to play with him over the years. Knowing what happened and seeing him prepare for the season and what he's been able to accomplish after all those surgeries, walking for greatness like this is always fun. "
