The PGA Championship Betting Bonanza Begins At Bellerive

For the one hundredth time of asking it's the last major of the year and all the big names are getting themselves ready for the PGA Championship betting this will be their year, however there can be only one winner and just who that will be may depend as much on the weather as their form at Bellerive, so just which of them should you back if you're going to have a little flutter at Bovada, one of the best online betting sites in the United States, this weekend? We take a look.

  • Can Tiger Woods beat those 33/1 odds and win at Bellerive this weekend?
  • Could Jordan Spieth be the best PGA Championship betting opportunity?
  • Is Dustin Johnson being the favorite at 18/1 a good reason to back him?
  • Will Rory McIlroy rediscover his form or fade away in the final round?

“It’s going to be quintessential target golf, sort of.” Admitted Rory McIlroy fielding questions about his fade in the last round of The Open ahead of the PGA Championship this week as wet weather loomed over the course at Bellerive. “Where your ball lands is where it’s going to really stay.” Which is going to make things interesting on the usually fast fairways, and indeed the weather perhaps explains why the PGA Championship betting odds at sites like Bovada have opened up a bit over the last few days.

“I’ve kept giving myself chances this year. I haven’t closed out those tournaments as I would have liked but at least I’m putting myself in position.” He admitted, “and that’s all I can do.” Which might explain why bookies like Bovada give him a lengthy 22/1 in the PGA Championship betting stakes which sounds a bit rough till you notice it actually makes him second favorite behind Dustin Johnson who is sitting pretty at 18/1, a nice bet if you’d like to bet on sports in the US over this next weekend.

Is Dustin Johnson, The Favorite, Over Confident?

“I expect to play well.” Said Dustin Johnson ahead of the PGA Championship betting he’d not come off sounding over-confident but not quite managing to pull it off, “I feel like, especially coming off of two really good weeks, I feel like the game’s in good shape and so, yeah, I expect to play well here this week, yes.” Which is great for those that back him at Bovada, but of course you should remember that Justin Thomas is third favorite at 25/1 and this weekend he’s hungry for victory as never before.

“It feels like I haven’t won in forever.” Justin Thomas said, but perhaps justified those PGA Championship betting odds by continuing “You’re always trying to win a major, but to make it on the century mark would be pretty cool, and top that off with winning two majors in one year, I think that would be pretty special.” Which it would be, but if you’re going to take advantage of US gambling laws to bet on the golf there’s always one name that keeps cropping up despite the long 33/1 odds.

“I wasn’t as sharp as I need to be,” said the re-emerging Tiger Woods of his recent poor performance going on to add that he had “Got three more days to clean it up, and I’ll be ready come Thursday.” The question is ready for what? The weather looks set to be a bit variable and that has had a significant  knock on effect within the PGA Championship betting odds sending Jason Day out to 33/1 as well at sites like Bovada, and even Justin Rose is pushed back to 28/1 with Jordan Spieth at the same price.

They’re moving the PGA Championship to earlier in the year after this 100th tournament, and whilst it is thus by no means the end of an era, there is a degree of finality about this as it relinquishes itself as the last chance of the year for the big boys to win a shiny major. The PGA Championship betting odds might have become scattered with the rain clouds but the focus of the players still has their eyes on the prize and if you’re in the US gambling news on Monday will be of a likely winner, just think that over.
