PGA Tour 2022 John Deere Classic Betting Odds, Favorites to Win, and Analysis

After last weekend’s exciting Travelers Championship, many of the world’s top golfers will be taking a short break prior to heading overseas for the Open Championship. That means that a young up-and-comer, or a grizzled veteran of the tour will have a great shot at winning the John Deere Classic this weekend. The John Deere Classic will be played at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois. 

Let’s take a look at some of the PGA Tour Betting favorites and a sleeper pick or two that we think have a great shot at winning this weekend’s John Deere Classic.

Golf Betting Preview for the 2022 PGA Tour John Deere Classic Tournament


Many of the world’s top golfers have won the Deere before. Jordan Spieth, Steve Stricker, and Bryson DeChambeau just to name a few, are among the former champions. Tiger Woods played in the JDC early on in his career as well. Headlining this year’s field will be Webb Simpson, Jason Day, J.T. Poston, and defending champion Lucas Glover. 

Deere Run is a par-71, 7268 yard course. The fairways are wide and straight, and many players can hit their drives into a fairly easy approach shot. The scores at this course are normally very low, so it’s obvious that this isn’t one of the tougher courses on the tour. We’ll see how well the 156 golfers in this field handle the relatively easy course. 

Some Favorites & A Sleeper or Two

  • Webb Simpson 12-1

Simpson finished tied for 13th at the Travelers Championship, so he should have a lot of momentum heading into this weekend’s JDC. Simpson is arguably the best golfer in the field, and he has a great shot at winning this one. We’ll see if Simpson can build on last weekend.

  • Christian Bezuidenhout 20-1

The Deere Run course is a great court for Bezuidenhout’s game. We’ll see if he can play well enough to be at the top of the leaderboard.

  • Sahith Tageela 22-1

After struggling at the finish of the Travelers, and probably costing himself the title, we’ll see how well Tageela rebounds from last weekend’s rough finish. He still finished in second place, and has had a great rookie season thus far. This could be a great place for his first victory on the PGA Tour.

  • Jason Day 28-1

Day missed the cut last weekend, but prior to that, he had been playing well. Day’s irons have let him down, but if he can get that part of his game fixed up, Day should be in line to contend for the JDC championship.

  • Nick Hardy 40-1

Hardy is playing really well right now. He tied for 14th at the US Open and was in the top 10 at the Travelers. The youngster’s game is made for Deere Run, and this could be the weekend that the golf world finally realizes how good Hardy truly can be. 

  • Cameron Champ 55-1

Even though he’s missed four straight cuts, this is the kind of tournament that Champ usually does well in. He has done well in tournaments with very little star power over the past few months.
