PGA Championship Betting Guide: Analysis and Tips for the 80 Best Golfers

Aug 08, 2018 5:00 PM EDT
  • The 2018 PGA Championship will be played at Bellerive Country Club from Aug. 9-12. The top betting favorites are Dustin Johnson (9-1 odds), Rory McIlroy (12-1) and Justin Thomas (14-1).
  • Justin Thomas -- who's going for his second consecutive PGA Championship win and is coming off a victory at the WGC-Bridgestone -- looks like a good fit for the course.
  • Tiger Woods' 25-1 odds are a bit too inflated to warrant a bet.

The season’s final major is here. Will Justin Thomas go back-to-back? Will Dustin Johnson stay scorching hot? Will Jordan Spieth complete the career grand slam?

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.

The 80+ breakdowns below feature expert analysis, metrics to know, and the best bets to make if you’re particularly bullish on a player.

Dive in and good luck!
