2024 PGA Championship favorites 

Scottie Scheffler (+400)

No matter the course or the conditions, you can almost guarantee Scottie Scheffler will be in contention at the majors. 

He followed up his Masters victory with a win at the RBC Heritage and has won four of his last five starts. His world-class form is reaching new heights and he's a clear favorite at Valhalla as a result. 

Rory McIlroy (+500)

The last time the PGA Championship came to Valhalla, Rory entered the week after back-to-back wins and he went on to win, beating Phil Mickelson by one shot. He's entering the 2024 edition in similar form after winning the Zurich Classic (with Shane Lowry) and dominating the field at Quail Hollow over the weekend.

The four-time major winner has been incredibly consistent at the majors over the last two years and the stars might just be aligning for him to win a fifth. 

Brooks Koepka (+1400)

The form is often come and go for the five-time major winner but when a major championship comes around, we expect Brooks to be at the top of his game. That good form returned with a win at LIV Golf Singapore two weekends ago. 

He's won the PGA Championship three times in his last six tries and has finished inside the Top 5 thrice more in his career. He also finished T15 when it was at Valhalla in 2014.

How to read PGA Championship odds

Betting odds for the PGA Championship, like other sporting events, can be presented in various formats, including American odds, fractional odds, and decimal odds. However, American odds are commonly used in the United States for sports betting. Here's how to read PGA Championship betting odds in American format:

Positive odds: Positive odds indicate the potential profit on a $100 bet. They are typically associated with underdogs or less likely outcomes.

For example, if you see odds of +500 on a golfer winning the PGA Championship, it means a $100 bet on that golfer would potentially yield a $500 profit if they win. Your total return would be $600 ($100 stake plus $500 profit).

Negative odds: Negative odds indicate how much you need to bet to profit $100. They are usually associated with favorites or more likely outcomes.

For instance, if you see odds of -150 on a golfer to win the PGA Championship, it means you would need to bet $150 to potentially win $100 in profit. Your total return would be $250 ($150 stake plus $100 profit).

Whether positive or negative, the odds provide insight into the perceived likelihood of a golfer winning the tournament. Higher positive odds indicate that the golfer is less likely to win but could yield a higher return if successful. Lower negative odds suggest that the golfer is favored to win but may yield a smaller return due to the higher probability of success.
