Golf Odds Spotlight on the Travelers Championship

Golf odds are all about prestige and timing. For example the golf betting odds for major sports betting events like the US Open are in high demand and easily accessible.

But a golf odds event like the Travelers Championship, which falls a week after the US Open, receives very little attention –from both golf betting odds enthusiasts and players alike- which can be a great thing for anyone looking to play the golf odds.

Golf odds for major events are often the only odds that some sports betting fans play. And that’s fine considering all the other major sporting action going on in the world. But if you’re looking to play the golf betting odds with a chance of actually winning some money the smaller, lower profile events like the Travelers Championship are the golf odds to play.

The Travelers Championship will take place on the weekend of June 28th. This year the TPC at River Highlands will place host to the golf betting odds action just as it has since 1991. Over the years the name of this golf odds tournament has changed many times over but it has remained a well attended event; in fact it’s the second best attended event on tour.

Many golfers will take the week off to try and decompress from the rigors of the US Open’s golf betting odds pressures. Yet surprisingly this field is as competitive as any and with a $6 million purse it’s really no secret why. Tiger Woods never plays in these golf odds so the field is basically wide open. Also world number two Phil Mickelson will also be absent as he spends time with his family, which means the field will be especially wide open in the golf odds this year.

If you’re looking for an early favorite you should remember that the Travelers Championship golf odds go on the board less than a week after the grueling US Open at Beth Page. That means anyone that finishes in contention in that golf odds event will likely be drained and not at his best when the Travelers Championship kicks off.

Stewart Cink will defend his title here and Hunter Mahan will look to get back in the winning circle after winning the event in 2007. Cink is actually a two time winner here and should be considered among the favorites. At 6,820 yards it’s not exactly the longest golf odds tournament and a solid short game is always rewarded on this course.
