The Players Championship Betting Props

The Players Championship Props

The Players Championship is known as golf’s unofficial fifth major, even though it technically doesn’t have major status. TPC Sawgrass and its iconic 17th hole is one of the most famous golf courses in the world, and there’s never any shortage of eyes on the event when it rolls around every year on the PGA Tour.

That means that outside of standard golf wagers, there are a litany of betting props available at BetOnline. The shop is offering a wide array of alternative specials including odds on players hitting their tee shots into the water on No. 17, whether or not there will be a hole-in-one and even odds on a seagull picking up a ball on the 17th green.

For a comprehensive betting layout of the Players, check out our preview. To find out which golfers I’m backing to win this week, visit my expert picks article.

What’s Going to Happen at Hole No. 17 This Year?

The short island green on No. 17 serves as the focal point for the Players, as golfers struggle to avoid the water on the hole year in and year out. This year, the OVER/UNDER for total balls going into the water on the hole has been set at 43.5, with the juice on the OVER at -120 and the UNDER priced at +100.

You can even go as far as betting on the highest score recorded on No. 17. The shop has installed the OVER/UNDER at 7.5 shots, as the OVER comes in at +110 and the UNDER heavily favored at -140. Since 2003, the most balls hit into the water on the famous hole was 93 in 2007.

In that tournament, a record 50 balls went into the drink in the opening round. The chances of a seagull picking up a ball on the 17th green are being offered at +12500 odds.

Playoff Props

Do you think the Players is going to go to a playoff? The chances of it happening are in plus money at +325, with the NO option coming in at -450. If the playoff features three or more players, you can get it at massive +1000 odds.

The playoff format was sudden death until 2013, starting at No. 17. But that was changed to a three-hole aggregate in 2014, similar to the PGA Championship, played over the final three holes, in order. If the action remains tied, the playoff goes to sudden death on the same three holes but starts at the 17th.

Since moving to the Stadium Course in 1982, only four playoffs have been necessary (1987, 2008, 2011 and 2015). The 2015 playoff was the first for the three-hole aggregate and included three participants. It went to sudden death at 17 and became the first playoff at the Players to end with a birdie when Kim Si-woo emerged triumphant in Florida.
