With the spotlight firmly on the Spaniard after a comment made about world number one Tiger Woods, Sky Bet and BetVictor offer that price.
Garcia, who has been involved in a public row with Woods since The Players Championship at Sawgrass, was asked last night if he would have the world number one around for dinner one night during the upcoming US Open.
"We will have him round every night," Garcia said. "We will serve fried chicken."
Garcia has since apologised. "I want to send out an unreserved apology, I did not mean to offend anyone," he said today.

Porto boss Vitor Pereira is the new favourite to take over as manager of Everton.1510
In a market which has already had several favourites, there's been a move for the Portuguese this afternoon and he's now no bigger than the 5/2 offered by Sky Bet, Ladbrokes and Coral.
The previously well-backed Roberto Martinez, Alan Stubbs and Malky Mackay can now be backed at 11/2, 9/1 and 12/1 respectively.
Reports in Portugal sugget Pereira, who is out of contract with Porto this summer, held talks with Everton yesterday, hence the plunge.
He has just led the club to a thrilling league title success in Portugal, Porto edging out Benfica by a single point.
Manuel Pellegrini is no bigger than 1/10 to become Manchester City's next manager after confirming he is to leave Malaga at the end of the season.1430

Telescope has been pushed out across the board for the Investec Derby after failing to impress in a raceoruse gallop at Lingfield this afternoon.1330
sportingbet will now give you 10/1 about Sir Michael Stoute's Classic hopeful.
Paddy Power offer 6/1 'with a run' on June 1.
Coral, Ladbrokes, William Hill and Boylesports all reacted by making favourite Dawn Approach an odds-on shot.
Hill's and Ladbrokes are now at 4/5 but Spreadex still go 6/5.
Leon Blanche, of Boylesports, said: "Telescope wasn't impressive on his racecourse gallop at Lingfield so we have pushed him out in the betting.
"Dawn Approach is a worthy 10/11 favourite after an impressive victory in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket."
Running in the 1900 at Kempton, Top Of The Glas has been one of the best-backed horses ahead of today's action.1250
Several firms are in from 10/1 to 4/1 about the chances of Alan Jarvis' charge.
Sky Bet's Seb James said: "Alan Jarvis' yard are firing the winners in at the moment, and their first two-year-old runner of the season has seen good support at Kempton this evening.
"A half-brother to a three-time all-weather winner, the colt should be at home on the surface and, in what looks a very weak race, the early support could be significant."
The Leeds-based firm also report support for Anton Dolin in the 2050 at Worcester.
Sommersturm and Whenever have also been backed in for a race which has seen two non-runners declared.
Elsewhere, Zabana is a well-backed favourite in Sligo's 1810 race, while punters have also siding with What A Clip for the 1630 at Lingfield, another race hit by a non-runner.
Also at Lingfield, Sir Mike has been well backed for the 1730 with 5/1 to 3/1 being the general move.
Andy Murray is rated a 1/33 shot to play at Wimbledon after pulling out of the French Open.1230
Coral are up with a market concerning whether he turns up in SW19 or not next month and have him at 1/33 to play some part.
The British star, whose back injury has forced him out of next week's Paris event, is 10/1 to miss the tournament.
Coral's Nicola McGeady said: "Murray's withdrawal from Roland Garros is probably a wise move and will hopefully give him plenty of time to recover for Wimbledon. His odds on winning Wimbledon have eased out (from 9/4 to 3/1) but patriotic punters are still hoping that he can land his first home Grand Slam title."
In the next Stoke manager market, Mark Hughes is now a best of 3/1 (Ladbrokes, Stan James).1140
Both he and Roberto Martinez have been widely cut so far today. The Wigan boss is now as short as 8/1 but Ladbrokes feel the appointment is unlikely - he and the outgoing Tony Pulis have vastly different football philosophies - and stick by their 20/1.
Sky Bet football trader Chris Spicer said: "Our punters are pretty divided as to who will replace Pulis with no odds-on favourite established yet, but Hughes is currently attracting the majority of the stakes.
"He will surely be itching to get back into management and prove a point given the nature of his exit from QPR, while it remains to be seen as to whether (Rafael) Benitez and (Robert) Di Matteo would really be interested in the post."
Coral report support for Wayne Rooney to move to Chelsea this summer.1120
They've cut the Manchester United striker from 2/1 to 11/10 to make the switch to Stamford Bridge.
Coral's Nicola McGeady said: "Rooney's future continues to cause waves across the betting world, with punters spreading their money between a move to Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG. All three clubs have headed the betting at some point over the last few weeks and we expect plenty more twists."
Rooney asked for a move when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge. He was turned down but David Moyes has since been named as the club's new manager. He takes over on July 1.
The England star is favoured to leave with the bookies. Coral and Stan James make him 4/7 to go this summer, although Sky Bet will give you 8/11. The first two firms go 5/4 that he stays at Old Trafford.
McGeady added: "We are convinced that he will leave this summer, despite some fans backing him to stay in Manchester, but his future is likely to become clearer when Moyes officially takes the reins."
Time for a look at the next Everton manager market now and Phil Neville is into a best of 16/1 after hinting he would be interested in succeeding David Moyes.1025
Neville, who is due to leave Goodison Park this summer after eight seasons there as a player, said it was "flattering" to be linked with the role and added: "I am at the end of my career and I am looking to get into coaching and management. It's just whatever direction the club want to take."
Neville is in from 20/1 to 16s with BetVictor. Ladbrokes also offer that price.
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has also shortened today. He's been widely cut and is now as short as 6/1 with William Hill. A general 20/1 remains available though.
Porto boss Vitor Pereira has also attracted more cash. He's currently a top price of 6/1 witgh BetVictor.
Wigan manager Roberto Martinez remains a cool favourite with most firms. He can be backed at 9/2 with BetVictor, Stan James and Ladbrokes.
It's 20/1 bar the top two in the betting at the French Open following Andy Murray's withdrawal last night.0945
Murray's decision to opt out - due to his bad back - saw favourite Rafael Nadal harden again.
Nadal, who retained his Rome Masters title on Sunday, is now a best of 8/11 (Ladbrokes, Spreadex).
Novak Djokovic, who beat Nadal the last time they met in Monte Carlo last month, can be backed at 2/1 (sportingbet).
Roger Federer is next in the market at 20s (sportingbet), followed by David Ferrer, who is now set to be seeded fourth, at 40s with the same firm.
Murray will now hope to be fit in time for Wimbledon, which starts on June 24. The Briton is currently a best of 7/2 to win in SW19 following last year's final defeat.
Djokovic tops the market at 9/4.
Mark Hughes is this morning the favourite to become Stoke's new manager after the departure of Tony Pulis was confirmed last night.0925
Most firms have cut the former QPR, Fulham and Manchester City manager into favouritism this morning. Stan James currently offer a standout 7/2.
Former Chelsea bosses Roberto Di Matteo and Rafael Benitez, the early frontrunners yesterday, are now available at 6/1 and 9/1 repsectively.
Brighton manager Gus Poyet (9/1 BetVictor, Paddy Power) and Wigan chief Roberto Martinez (20/1 BetVictor) have also been trimmed in places today.
We'll keep an eye on this market throughout the day.
