PGA Championship Betting Odds: Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler Favorites to Win

PGA Championship Betting Odds: Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler Favorites to Win

As I write this piece, the opening round of the PGA Championship is already underway, so I will be sure to include updates on the golfers listed in this article. Picking a winner, especially in a major, is tough, as the majority of players teeing off on Thursday could win this thing if they can string together 4 good rounds. Still, only one golfer can win the tournament, and there are definitely a few who stand out as potential winners. Yesterday, we took a look at some potential dark horses who could be crowned as the champion on Sunday, but for this piece, we are going to take a look at the favorites, so let’s jump right in, keeping in mind that these PGA Championship odds will likely have changed by the time you read this.


Last Minute PGA Championship Betting Odds Update

When: May 18-21
Where: Oak Hill East Course
TV / Streaming: ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN+
Purse: $15,000,000


Jon Rahm

Betting Pick: +750

Rahm has always been a guy who hovered around the top of the leaderboard heading into the final round, but the knock on him was that he was all too often the bridesmaid. That is certainly not the case this season, though, as he has 4 wins already, including The Masters, and is the #1 player in the world. As good as he has been, he has some real work on his hands after a disastrous +6 opening round. He is going to need to be spectacular on Friday if he is to even make the cut. Rahm’s odds have now gone to +12500, which is quite a drop.

Scottie Scheffler

Betting Pick: +750

Scheffler came into this tournament playing some fine golf, which included winning a pair of events already this season. This is a golfer that knows how to handle pressure, which he proved when he won The Master last year. If you like Scheffler to win the PGA Championship, you might want to get in on the action now, as he is right among the leaders after shooting -3 in the opening round, which has him a shot off the lead at the time of writing. He has seen his odds shorten to +300, and those odds will continue to head in that direction if he goes well again on Friday.

Rory McIlroy

Betting Pick: +1200

I don’t really have to go into too much detail about McIlroy and what he has accomplished on the PGA Tour, as he is very much a household name at this point. He has amassed 23 career wins to this point, although he has just 1 tour victory this season. He is always a good bet to be among the leaders in every tournament he enters, but he is a bit off the pace after shooting +1 in his opening round. 4 or 5 strokes is not a huge gap to make up over the course of 3 days, but he will need to be better on Friday. Right now, his odds have gone to +2200.

Xander Schauffele

Betting Pick: +1600

Gold tournaments are not won on the opening round, but they can certainly be lost. Just ask Jon Rahm what he thinks about his chances after his first round at Oak Hill. Schaueffele has yet to begin his opening round at the time of writing, so his odds are the same at this point. While he has 7 wins in his time with the PGA Tour, he is still looking for his first victory of this season. It’ll be interesting to see what he shoots in Round 1.
