Here are the lates odds for the match, along with details on the format, skins payouts and a few picks from our experts.
Skins Match Odds: Rory McIlroy & Dustin Johnson vs. Rickie Fowler & Matthew Wolff
|Book||Rory & DJ Odds||Fowler & Wolff Odds|
|DraftKings||-175 (BET NOW)||+138 (BET NOW)|
|FanDuel||-180 (BET NOW)||+145 (BET NOW)|
|PointsBet||-170 (BET NOW)||+140 (BET NOW)|

If you’re looking to bet on Rory and DJ, FanDuel is your best bet. It’s the only book at -180. And if you’re a new customer, they’ll give you a $500 freeroll to bet on today’s match.
If you’d rather bet on the underdog, we’d suggest going with either DraftKings or Parx. DraftKings is giving all customers (both new and existing) a 50% profit boost on one bet for this match, meaning if you bet $100 on +150, you’d win $225 instead of $150.
Parx is doing something similar for new customers in Pennsylvania: In addition to a $500 risk-free bet off the jump, you also get a 20% profit boost on your first wager.
Using a real example: If you put $500 on Rory and DJ at -186 odds, your potential winnings would be boosted from $269 to $403.5. And if you lose, you’d have $500 in credits deposited back into your account. You can withdraw whatever you turn those free bets into.
Skins Match Format & Rules
Each player will play his own ball and the lowest score for each team determines who wins the skins. The skins payouts are as follows:
- Holes 1-6 are worth $50,000
- Holes 7-16 are worth $100,000
- Hole 17 is worth $200,000
- Hole 18 is worth $500,000
Skins will carry over any time a hole is halved.
The team with the most money won via skins is the winner of the match. An important note: The golfers will be awarded $25,000 for every birdie and $50,000 for every eagle, but any money won via these bonuses does not count toward the overall match winner.
