The PGA Tour heads to the shores of Bermuda for the sixth stop of the season.

The Butterfield Bermuda Championship will be played at Port Royal Golf Course, known as one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world for its scenic views.

The field for the Bermuda Championship isn’t particularly great, to put it nicely.

The favorite is Denny McCarthy at +1600 on BetMGM. He is ranked No. 83 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

At No. 48, Seamus Power is the highest-ranked player in the field in terms of OWGR.

He is +2200 to win the tournament on BetMGM. Power has gotten some action MGM, garnering 4.8% of the tickets and 7.7% of the money.

McCarthy has also received some bets at the shop, with 4% of the tickets and 7.4% of the handle.

The biggest liability for BetMGM this week, however, is someone that opened at +30000 – that would be the 20-year-old PGA Tour rookie, Akshay Bhatia.

Bhatia is getting 4.3% of the bets and accounts for 7.9% of the handle. His odds have moved down to +20000 at MGM.

Brian Gay, who is a certified weapon on shorter golf courses, is the second biggest liability for BetMGM at +20000. He’s getting 3.2% of the tickets and 3.6% of the money.

Brandon Wu is also getting significant action at the book. He accounts for 4.2% of the tickets and a whopping 10.4% of the handle.

Russell Knox leads the field this week in ticket percentage. He’s generating 6.1% of the bets so far.

It’s a tournament that lacks star power but that also means it could be a life-changing win for whoever comes out on top.
