Phil Mickelson PGA Championship Odds

November 30, 2010 Golf

PGA Championship odds will include Phil Mickelson as he announced that he will be playing golf’s last major of the year.

PGA Championship betting odds will be on the sports book board for the event which starts on Thursday, August 13th.

PGA Championship odds are likely to have Phil Mickelson as the second choice at the sports book, but well back of Tiger Woods. PGA Championship odds have Tiger at about 2-1 while Phil is at about 12-1 at the sportsbook. The PGA Championship odds field will include a lot of golfers with a chance but Tiger is the heavy favorite at the sportsbook. There will be some action on Phil though since he has won in PGA Championship odds in the past. Mickelson has not played much since learning his wife and mother have breast cancer.

Some of the other golfers in the PGA Championship odds field are happy that Phil is back including Tiger. "Well, if he’s playing, things are going better at home," Woods said, "If things were not going well, then I don’t think he’d play. So it’s a positive sign to see him out here playing."

While Mickelson will be a popular choice in PGA Championship odds at the sports book, he has not played that well at Hazeltine where this year’s PGA is held. He finished in a tie for 34th in 2002 PGA Championship betting odds when the PGA Championship was held at Hazeltine and back in 1991 at the U.S. Open he was even worse.

PGA Championship odds stats tell us that Mickelson has player in 12 tournaments this year before the Firestone tourney and had two victories in the Northern Trust Open and the World Golf Championships-CA Championship. He finished second at the U.S. Open back in June.

PGA Championship odds at the sports book are definitely appealing on Mickelson since you get double-digit odds. That doesn’t mean he will win though but at least the value is there in PGA Championship betting odds. That is oftentimes the case when Tiger Woods is entered in an event. The PGA Championship odds are so low on Woods that all other golfers in the field offer value. The problem with going with Mickelson in PGA Championship odds, or any other golfer, is that Woods wins a lot of the time although he has not won a major this year.
