Golf Odds Preview: John Deere Classic

Golf odds regulars are getting their fill of top quality sports betting in the months of June and July.

Starting off with the US Open the span between that Major golf betting odds events up to the British Open is arguably the most exciting on the calendar and full of big time golf odds events. One of these events is the John Deere Classic, not quite on the same plane as the Majors, but a big golf odds event nonetheless.

Golf odds makers are already predicting a slimmed down field at this classic PGA event. There are several reasons why many of the top names in golf betting odds won’t be here, but the biggest has to do with its position on the golf odds calendar. It’s the week before the British Open and the top players in the game are already mostly in Europe practicing for the much meatier golf odds event.

Still, there will be plenty of golf betting odds talent in Silvis, IL on July 9th to kick off the tournament that began in 1971. Held at the TPC at Deer Run there are plenty of challenges for the golf odds entrants on this 7,214 yard par 71 course. For most golf betting odds fans there are two things that set this course apart from the others: breathtaking scenery that lines this course in the Midwest and a giant tractor floating on the 18th hole.

Lately this course and golf odds tournament has been a hot bed for youth talent. The biggest news in recent years was Michelle Wie’s attempt to become the first woman to win a men’s golf odds event here in ‘05 and ‘06. Most golf odds fans will recall she didn’t fare all that well. But in that same year, ‘05, PGA rookie Sean O’Hair claimed victory here and road that momentum to the British Open and a PGA Rookie of the Year award.

Defending champ Kenny Perry is no novice to the golf odds and after years on tour finally claimed the crown here last year. Over the past few years Americans have dominated the winning circle here winning 12 of the past 15 years. A few Aussies have won here and Vijay Singh was the golf odds champ in 2003.

For the most part the event will be devoid of the superstars of the golf world but it’s a great chance to glimpse the future stars of the tour and get a look at some very good sports betting lines.
