Jon Rahm 2019 PGA Championship Betting Odds

  • Odds to Win PGA Championship: 18-1
  • DFS Pricing: $9,500 (DraftKings), $11,200 (FanDuel)
  • Tee Times: 1:16 p.m. ET (Thursday); 7:51 a.m. ET (Friday)

Rahm is a guy I absolutely want to buy this week, especially in DFS, as he’s only $9,500 on DraftKings. I think Rahm will get at least one major in his career, and the PGA Championship is the one best suited to his strengths. He hits the ball a mile — he’s second in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee — and can get incredibly hot with his irons. If he has a weakness, it’s an inconsistent short game, but this is a course on which he can get away with that; awesome drives and second shots will absolutely have him in contention.

Put simply, he’s one of the best all-around players in the world, and this course favors those types, especially the longest ones. His price is too low in DFS, and I’ll be looking to buy him in the betting market as well, especially in head-to-head props.
