PGA Championship Golf: Matchups and Prop Odds

PGA Golf Tournament Betting Odds

pga-championship-odds-2016Betting action for the 2016 PGA Championship has heated up as golf’s fourth major gets underway Thursday in Springfield, New Jersey at Baltusrol Golf Club.

There may not be as big of a betting board as there is for the Super Bowl, but gamblers can wager on golf futures, head-to-head tournament matchups, props, daily matchups and live betting all week long.

Let’s take a look at a few golf betting matchups that are worth a look this week and the latest PGA Championship odds.


When is the last time Johnson played poorly? Even if he putts below average, he still finishes in the top ten. After winning five times in seven months, Day has cooled off and is fighting to maintain the lofty expectations that were put on him. Jason Day is the No. 1 player in the world, but Johnson is the more consistent player and the one that I would put my money on.


I think the experts got this one wrong. Mickelson should be the favorite. Scott is a liability every week due to his inconsistent putting, while Mickelson is on top of his game. The last time Baltusrol Golf Club hosted a major championship in 2005, Mickelson won. Roll with Lefty this week!


McIlroy can join Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Bobby Jones as the only golfers to win five majors before turning 30 years old. That is an elite list! And don’t forget, he’s going for three PGAs in the last five years. Since his debut at the PGA Championship in 2009, McIlroy is 1st in scoring average, 1st in rounds in the 60’s and 1st in birdies and eagles. McIlroy is a strong play this week in our PGA predictions.


Holmes is on the verge of securing a spot on the Ryder Cup team. His third place finish at the Open Championship was clutch and moved him into the top five in the standings. After his epic win at The Masters, Willett has disappeared from the leaderboards and struggles just to make the cut. Holmes whips Willett.

Our Top Golf Picks


The last four major winners are all first-time winners from different countries and for our PGA predictions, this bodes well for Garcia. The Spaniard has 22 top 10s at major championships and has the length to contend at Baltusrol this week. I am a huge believer in trends and first time winners of majors is trending right now. Garcia is a bargain at +2559!


Bubba does have two majors under his belt but only four top 10s in his career. Both his wins came at The Masters and that’s half of his top ten finishes. He continues to struggle with his short game, which is pivotal in most major championships. Watson is paired up against Matt Kuchar and Justin Rose in the weekly golf matchups and will again disappoint his fans and backers.

The 2016 PGA Championship gets started July 28-31, 2016. Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, New Jersey, will host the event and TNT and CBS will televise the tournament live.
