PGA Tour Betting Odds, The Barclays, Vegas Odds and Golf Predictions: If you've got a gut feeling about the winner of this weekend's PGA event, place your wagers now. The tournament starts Thursday, August 26th at The Ridgewood Country Club, Paramus, New Jersey.
The favorites to win are 11-1. Tiger Woods is barely hanging to his #1 world ranking. Everyone on the planet earth are aware of his struggles this year. The #2 ranked golfer in the world, Phil Mickelson, is a PGA Predictions win (or a top finish), away from taking Tiger's top spot. They are the two favorites.
A two dollar bet on a "favorite" at most horse tracks, usually will net a winner a five dollar bill. More often than not, less than that. At the track, bettors would chomp at the bit at an 11-1 favotite! Let's see... if the favorites are 11-1 to win the PGA Predictions event, all of other pro golfer's are higher! The bigger the odds, the bigger the payday.
After the tournament starts, the odds will go up or down, depending on the leaderboard. If you bet early you have options of making wagers on; the first round leader, mking the cut, finishing in the top ten, as well as the winner. There often "props" wagers available.
This years money and FedEx Cup leader, Ernie Els is 30-1. Northern Ireland's up and commer, Rory McIlroy is the "second" favorite at 12-1, and the infamous, club-grounding Dustin Johnson is 28-1, and is ready for a PGA Predictions victory. Last year's winner at The Barclays, Heath Slocum is 100-1.
The pressure is on for Tiger to "win and get in", as he needs to work his way into this years Top 100 to qualify for next week's event, The TPC in Boston.
It's a little bit trickier, picking one of 100+ golfers over 10 horses. But the payoff is worth a little risk. SOMEONE is going to win. Maybe, just maybe, we'll see Tiger and Phil, walking together to the 18th green, putting for a PGA Predictions win on Sunday.
