2014 PGA Championship Betting Odds

It’s never to early to talk about the final major of the year: The PGA Championship. The PGA Championship doesn’t have that mystic of the other three major championships, but it’s a major of late I’ve really been looking forward to because of the courses it has taken place on.

Last year, Oak Hill Country Club hosted the PGA Championship, a course I really love. In 2012, Kiawah Island, in 2011: Atlanta Athletic Club, and in 2010: Whistling Straits. This year, it’ll take place at Valhalla Golf Club. Which is a fantastic course which will favor the longer, higher hitters.  We won’t break it down too much, let’s just stay on topic and talk about the odds.

According to Ladbrokes these are the initial 2014 PGA Championship betting odds:

Rory McIlroy 6/1

Tiger Woods 10/1

Adam Scott 14/1

Phil Mickelson 16/1

Martin Kaymer 20/1

Justin Rose 25/1

Matt Kuchar 25/1

Henrik Stenson 25/1

Bubba Watson 25/1

Sergio Garcia 25/1

Rickie Fowler 25/1

As expected, Rory McIlroy is the favorite and a sizable favorite which is well deserved. McIlroy is the most talented player on the PGA Tour. With the way Valhalla plays and is setting up for this year’s PGA Championship, McIlroy is definitely the favorite.

Woods at 10/1 is just silly. Is anybody really going to put money on Woods? At 100/1? Yeah, I’d throw a couple of bucks on him, but not at 10/1.

Jason Dufner 33/1

Dustin Johnson 33/1

Lee Westwood 33/1

Jason Day 33/1

Jordan Spieth 33/1

Before the year started my pick to win the PGA Championship was Jason Day. With Day battling a thumb and wrist injury I’m wavering on my pick a bit. We’ll have to see how he plays at Bridgestone next week, but at 33/1 that’s not a bad value play. Dustin Johnson is a fantastic value pick as well. Johnson at 33/1 is pretty much a steal, he should be at least in the 20/1 range.

Charl Schwartzel 40/1

Brandt Snedeker 40/1

Keegan Bradley 40/1

Graeme McDowell 40/1

Jimmy Walker 50/1

Jim Furyk 50/1

Luke Donald 50/1

Webb Simpson 50/1

Zach Johnson 50/1

Hunter Mahan 50/1

Charl Schwartzel, Keegan Bradley, and Jimmy Walker are really nice plays as well. All three golfers’ game fits Valhalla like a glove and should be in the thick of the action on Sunday. At 40/1 to 50/1 that’s some nice value right there.

Looking down the list there are a handful of golfers I really like at 100/1, but I’ll save that for another day. Once again, these odds are courtesy of Ladbrokes and you can check them out right here.
