On June 1st we have the “Battle of the NFL Quarterbacks” in a charity golf match over twelve holes at the Wynn Golf Course in Las Vegas.
We have seen Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers in previous renewals of “The Match” pitted against each other with their golf partners of Phil Mickelson and Bryson Dechambeau last year. The year before, it was Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady.
It needs to be stated that charity has been the big winner from these contests, in total, there have been five renewals of “The Match” now which have raised a remarkable $33,000,000 for various good causes.

Not only do the older guard of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers have the NFL experience, but they are also likely to have a fundamental advantage from their experiences gained in previous “The Match” renewals.
What Can We Expect From the Four NFL Quarterbacks on the Golf Course?
We know that Tom Brady is a respectable golfer and a solid 8 handicapper while Aaron Rodgers has been below a 4 handicap at one point. At this season’s Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Josh Allen debuted as a partner to Keith Mitchell, but they missed the fifty-four-hole cut, however, the experience will be positive.
Patrick Mahome’s only competitive pro-celebrity experience is the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe. There have been reports that both the young quarterbacks are single-digit handicappers at golf but there’s not conclusive proof that we have with the experienced TV Golf duo.
BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review) has the odds set on Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers as the -195 favorites and Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes as the +170 underdogs for those same reasons mentioned above. It needs stating that if Allen and Mahomes are indeed solid single-figure handicappers, then this match has the potential to be closer to a coin flip.
How Should We Bet on the Match?
It always adds that bit of extra excitement to have a wager while watching an exhibition match for good causes and maybe the angle here is to look at the “young bucks” upstaging the “old guard”.
Let’s be honest, everyone is expecting, Brady and Rodgers to win just on experience alone but outside of a gridiron contest, the next best thing for Allen and Mahomes would be to beat their respected opponents and gain bragging rights.
Don’t forget these contests have both teams fitted with open mics so we can enjoy that banter and looking at Twitter it’s well and truly started between the two teams.
I might be wrong so keep stakes modest, but I don’t expect television will want a one-sided contest so I’m betting they have done their homework and we have a good level match up. It’s possible that Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers may start to feel the pressure as “The Match” draws on their own weight of expectation if the “young guns” can stay in touch.
With that in mind let’s trust youth to beat experience after all the nerve of the younger man could come in handy on those slick putting surfaces at the Wynn Golf Course so take BetOnline attractive price of +170 on Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes.
