1st Round Leader

Scottie Scheffler+1800
Jon Rahm+2000
Rory McIlroy+2500
Xander Schauffele+3000
Patrick Cantlay+3300
Justin Thomas+3500
Brooks Koepka+3500
Tony Finau+3500

The 1st Round Leader betting market is one of the most valuable from a betting perspective. All stars in the field will be looking to get off to the best possible start, but it could be testing to find the first round leader with over 156 players involved. Meanwhile, 99 of the top 100 players will be in action this weekend.

Dustin Johnson could be a standout player to start quickly this weekend. He is one of 20 players involved that competed in the 2013 PGA Championship at this course, where he finished in eighth. Another solid selection could be Max Homa. He has been in red-hot form over recent months, and that momentum could continue over the opening days.

Top Ten Finish Odds & Pick

Scottie Scheffler-115
Jon Rahm+105
Xander Schauffele+135
Patrick Cantlay+155
Rory McIlroy+170
Tony Finau+190
Brooks Koepka+250
Sungjae Im+275

The Top Ten betting market enables bets to be placed on the outsiders in the betting. Therefore, we will be avoiding making a wager on many of the stars mentioned above, as there will likely be better value in the Top 5 betting market.

Justin Rose certainly looks like a player worth following this weekend. He landed a first win in over four years earlier in 2023, and has since finished 16th at The Masters and sixth at The Players. Harris English is another worth taking a chance on. He has made the cut in five from six events at the PGA Championship, and he has shown excellent form already this year.

How Many LIV Tour Players Make The Cut

Total LIV Players To Make The CutOdds
Over 9.5-120
Under 9.5-110

Once again, there will be animosity in the air, as PGA Tour and LIV stars clash this weekend. Since the Saudi-backed tour has been in operation, they have yet to produce a major champion. However, they did come close with Brooks Koepka at The Masters earlier this year. But, a chance will be taken on under 9.5 LIV players making the cut this weekend.

Playoff Featuring 3 Or More Players?


Last year’s PGA Championship was decided following a dramatic playoff between Justin Thomas and Will Zalatoris. However, that was the first playoff since 2011. You have to go back to 2004 for the last time that a playoff finish featuring three stars involved in the event. Therefore, the likely bet here is on ‘no’.
