We’re a week removed from the U.S. Open and after a grueling period of play, the absence of a number of big names from this week’s Travelers Championship has opened up the betting pool.
Justin Thomas, Will Zalatoris and, of course, Brooks Koepka, are out of this week’s field.
Jordan Spieth is another popular candidate at the Travelers. He’s attracted 6.0% of the tickets at Caesars and 7.1% of the tickets at BetMGM, but he accounts for the highest handle at BetMGM.
Another popular name for bettors this week is Keegan Bradley, who grew up in the New England area. At +2500, Bradley has drawn the second-most money at Caesars to take home the Travelers.
Bradley had an impressive U.S. Open, but he’s missed the cut at the past two iterations of this event. At BetMGM, Bradley is generating 3.3% of the betting tickets and a near-identical 3.4% of the handle.
Rory McIlroy is generating single-digit betting ticket numbers and handle percentages at both BetMGM and Caesars.
He earned a T5 finish at the U.S. Open.
