There's lots of PGA golf on this week and Golf Betting enthusiasts can find plenty of enticing wagers at Sportingbet.com with the highlight being on the 2008 Canadian Open betting odds offered. 

In addition to the 2008 Canadian Open odds, Sportingbet.com has odds for this week's Senior Open Championship and the Russian Open. As well, early lines are available for next month's PGA Championship, the 2008 Ryder Cup in September and the top European money winner, otherwise known as the European Order of Merit. 

The 99th edition of the 2008 RBC Canadian Open starts Thursday at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont. (3 pm ET, CBS HD).  

Jim Furyk won the $5 million PGA tournament last year, his second straight win at the Canadian Open, and he's the favorite heading into this year's tournament, at +800 odds at Sportingbet.com.  

Rounding out the top five are Anthony Kim at +1000, Canadians Mike Weir and Stephen Ames at +1800 and Retief Goosen at +2200. 

Sportingbet.com has Bernhard Langer as a +600 favorite to win the Senior Open Championship at the Royal Troon Golf Club in Ayrshire, Scotland. 

Defending Senior Open champion Tom Watson is +750 and Greg Norman, who held the lead heading into the final round of the 2008 British Open last Sunday and ended up third, is +800. 

Eduardo Romero and Ian Woosnam round out the top five at +1200 and +1600, respectively. 

And with World No. 1 Tiger Woods out of action until next year, second-ranked Phil Mickelson is a +1000 favorite to win the PGA Championship, the fourth of golf's four majors, which starts Aug. 7. 

Furyk, 2008 British Open champion Padraig Harrington, and Sergio Garcia are all +1600, and Adam Scott is +2500.

White Sox and the Rays vs. Red Sox Under Come Through Nicely Sunday

The Rays are suddenly looking human again and playing .500 baseball over their last ten games.  They will be offering up Taj Bradley (3-2, 3.60 ERA), a desperate Taj Bradely we should say.  He was charged with one run (zero earned) over 5 2/3 innings on Monday but it was still a loss to the Cubs.
