PLAYERS Championship Odds & Betting Preview

No, I’m not yelling at you. The PLAYERS Championship (which is spelled exclusively in all caps) is set to get underway this weekend at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. When it comes to who’s favored to win it all, it’s no surprise to see the world No. 1 at the top of the list.

Dustin Johnson is the +700 favorite to win the hardware at Bovada, with Rory McIlroy (+1000), Jordan Spieth (+1200), Rickie Fowler (+1600), Sergio Garcia (+1800), Hideki Matsuyama (+2000), Jon Rahm (+2000), Justin Thomas (+2200), Jason Day (+2200) and Justin Rose (+2500) right behind him.

Perennially the strongest roster on the PGA Tour, the PLAYERS Championship features 24 of the top 25 in the world rankings and 55 of the top 60. The tournament features the strongest purse of the year, so seeing the world’s best flock to the Sunshine State is not much of a surprise.

While Johnson is undeniably the hottest golfer in the world right now after winning three tournaments in a row prior to the Wells Fargo Championship, he’s far from a lock to win the event this time around. Before last year’s share of 28th, his previous seven starts at TPC Sawgrass saw him without a top-30 finish. He had also broken 70 just once in an opening round, which came in 2004.

Day tied the course record with an opening 63 a year ago and didn’t look back, becoming just the fifth wire-to-wire winner in the tournament’s history in a four-stroke triumph. The Aussie’s total of 15-under-par 273 was the lowest score at TPC Sawgrass in a decade.

The course is known for its toughness and ability to test every part of a golfer’s game, highlighted by the ridiculous amount of water surrounding hole No. 17. In 2016, 36 balls found the water there on the iconic 137-yard hole.

Here’s a look at the shop’s full list of odds. Where do you think the value is?
