Odds to Win the 2020 Houston Open

2020 Houston Open Betting Odds

The last tournament prior to the Masters takes place this week with the 2020 edition of the Houston Open at Memorial Park Golf Course on November 5-8.

When it comes to odds on which golfers have the best chance to win the Houston Open, Bovada has you covered. After three rounds, Sam Burns has the lead at -9 but trails Jason Day on the oddsboard at +275. Day, who trails Burns by one stroke is the favorite to win at +225.

Day is tied with Carlos Ortiz at -8 and the Mexican golfer sits at +650, just behind Dustin Johnson at +450, who was the pre-tournament fave. DJ sits at -6 heading into Sunday.

Here’s a look at the golfers with the likeliest odds to emerge triumphant in Texas this week. For a full breakdown of the Masters, check out my Odds to Win the 2020 Masters article.

Memorial Park Returns to the PGA Tour

Memorial Park, a public course, will be part of the PGA Tour schedule for the first time since 1963. On average, over 60,000 rounds per year are played at the venue.

The course was completely redesigned (with input from Koepka) by renowned architect Tom Doak for the 2020 Houston Open. Some holes have been lengthened and others shortened on the 7,021-yard track, while fairways were widened and trees removed, all to bring it up to tour standards. 

“Other than winning a golf tournament, it’s one of the coolest projects that I’ve been involved in,” Koepka told FOX 26 Houston last year.

Houston Open Will Have Spectators

For the first time since the PGA Tour’s Return to Golf in June, spectators will be in attendance at an American event.

Last week, the Bermuda Championship became the first tournament to allow patrons in to watch live golf. The limited attendees this week will be required to follow social-distancing protocols in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Here’s a helpful guide to some of the different betting options for the Houston Open to help you put some extra cash in your pocket while wagering on golf.


Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available at weekly tournaments. The Houston Open is no different.

Sportsbooks are offering odds on things like whether there will be a hole-in-one, OVER/UNDERs on the winning score for the eventual champion and odds on which players from specific countries will have the lowest score, to name a few.

Like other sports, betting on props is a fun and unique way to enhance your golf gambling experience.

Live Betting

Live Betting is arguably one of the most exciting ways to bet on golf. If the player you placed a pre-tournament bet on is out of the running at any point during the Houston Open, you can bet on another golfer as the days go by and have another stake in the game.

If there are only a few men in the hunt on the final day, the odds likely won’t be significantly high, but your chances of winning are. We’ve seen this happen multiple times in the PGA Tour’s Return to Golf, as multiple tournaments have gone to a playoff.
