The overwhelming favorite in PGA Championship betting odds is Tiger Woods. The early PGA Championship odds have him as a 2-1 favorite.
PGA Championship odds on Tiger are always low. These are very small, especially since Woods already has a number of wins this year but none in the majors. Tiger will not want to end the year without winning a major. At 2-1 in PGA Championship odds, there is not a lot of value in taking Tiger but many people will do so anyway. Other golfers that might attract some attention though in PGA Championship odds are Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Lee Westwood, last year’s winner Padraig Harrington and Sergio Garcia. Unlike what happened in the British Open when Tom Watson was a surprise contender, don’t look for an older golfer to contend this week.
Tiger did not even make the cut in his last major, the British Open but he has rebounded since to win the Buick Open. Keep in mind that even though Woods has not won a major this year, he has won at least one in every season since 2005. He is a four-time winner in PGA Championship odds, the last of which was two years ago. Also remember that Woods did not play in last year’s event when Harrington was the winner in PGA Championship betting odds.
The last time PGA Championship odds were held at Hazeltine in Minnesota it was Rich Beem handing Tiger a rare loss. That 2002 win and the 2003 win by Shaun Micheel were the only two wins in recent PGA Championship odds history by golfers who were not big names. Phil Mickelson won in 2005 sports betting, Jim Furyk won in 2002 sports betting, Vijay Singh won a few years ago and we already know about Woods winning four times in PGA Championship odds.
Wagering on PGA Championship odds for many people will be all about Tiger. He is the heavy favorite in PGA Championship betting odds but not the only one with a chance. Phil Mickelson will get some support from online sports betting gamblers in PGA Championship odds. Sergio Garcia has finished second twice in PGA Championship betting odds and he could get some support this week from online sports betting gamblers.
