Something you need to know about betting on major championships: The odds reset in a noteworthy way every Monday morning before the tournament. Golf odds usually come out on Monday mornings, but they’re out for majors months and months in advance. They are not monitored as closely as the week-to-week tournaments.
That means we can find some value.
Our Action Labs golf odds page will have each players’ best numbers on Monday morning, but here are a few noteworthy names who stood out when looking at odds boards on Sunday.
Brooks Koepka: +3000 Caesars, +4500 DraftKings
Koepka is known as golf’s big-game hunter, and he almost claimed another prize last year at this tournament. Ultimately, he was outplayed by Phil Mickelson in the final round and finished T2.
The four-time major winner has missed the last two cuts at the Masters, but last year he finished T4 at the US Open and T6 at the Open Championship. He hasn’t played since the Masters and has been hit or miss this season. It’s clear given his track record, though, that Koepka is most likely to hit at a major.
Billy Horschel: +5000 DraftKings, WynnBet +12500
One top player on TOUR who DraftKings is playing it very, very safe this week is Billy Horschel.
In his last seven stroke-play starts (not including his WD at THE PLAYERS), Horschel has finished in the top 20 six times. His last win was the Match Play last year, and since then he’s been toward the top of the leaderboard every time since then.
Russell Henley: +5000 WynnBet, +100000 BetMGM
Henley is among the best iron players in the world, ranking No. 1 on the PGA TOUR in Strokes Gained: Approach in 2022.
He is a cut-making machine, although contending has been an issue. Henley had the lead entering the final round at January’s Sony Open, only to lose in a playoff to Hideki Matsuyama. Since then, he’s had three top-20 finishes in nine starts, although the best result is T13.
Henley has only missed one cut in 15 starts during the 2021-22 PGA TOUR season, though, and he has a clear strength that gives him a leg up on the field.
Henley was 150-1 at FanDuel on Sunday night, although that was predictably moved immediately. DraftKings has Henley at +6500, but he’s available at most other major books at +8000 or higher.
