- Read our staff's favorite bets for this weekend's tournament including Top-20s, matchups and more.
The 2019 PGA Championship begins on Thursday morning (6:45 a.m. ET) at Bethpage Black on Long Island, NY.
After taking down the Masters in heroic fashion, Tiger Woods is the current favorite at 8-1 with Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy right behind him at 10-1.
Given the size of these events, the elite fields that participate and the attention that they garner, bookmakers light up the board, giving bettors a gigantic menu of betting options.
Here are our favorite bets for this weekend’s tournament at Bethpage Black:
The bet: Tony Finau +150 to Top-20 finish
I’m going to keep betting this one at majors until they stop offering plus money. Finau has hit the top 20 in four of the last five majors and is 7-for-12 overall for his career. Couple that with how well the lengthy Bethpage should suit his skill set and Finau should be in store for a solid week.
