Warriors’ Stephen Curry big favorite in celeb golf tournament behind leader Tony Romo, Aaron Rodgers 100-1
Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry might not be taking part in the NBA bubble, but he’s already preparing for his next win. Curry is trading the basketball for a much smaller ball as a 12-1 favorite to the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament.
NFL color analyst and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is at even odds to win the tournament while Green Bay Packers gunslinger Aaron Rodgers isn’t far behind Curry with 100-1 odds — currently 14th in the list, according to William Hill Sports Book.

Stephen Curry will have some major competition — and not only with Romo, who has been a sensation in the links since his playing days — but also with former MLB pitchers Mark Mulder, Derek Lowe and John Smoltz. The three aforementioned are ranked in the top five.
Former tennis player Mardy Fish rounds out the top five list with the third-best odds at 15-2.
In last year’s iteration of the tournament, Curry finished seventh with a score of 50. Case Keenum trails Curry by a spot at 30-1 odds, but the NFL quarterback finished a spot above the two-time MVP in 2019.
Romo has won the last two tournaments, which naturally makes him a three-peat candidate at the Edgewood Resort in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada.
Patrick Mahomes, who is fresh off a 10-year, $450 million extension after beating the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl earlier this year, is set to make his ACC Tournament debut but only has 400-1 odds to win as a newcomer.
