PGA Tour odds are now up for the Sony Open as golf's top circuit extends its Hawaiian vacation for another week.
Some of the game's top names will be sitting out this week, but there are still plenty of tough competitors vying at the top of the Sony Open betting odds board.
Let's jump into our Sony Open odds preview for January 14-17 at Wai'alae Country Club.
Who is the Favorite to Win the Sony Open?
Webb Simpson enters the Sony Open as the favorite, installed at +1,100. Simpson - currently the OWGR's No. 8 golfer - finished T17 at last weekend's Sentry Tournament of Champions, and was one of the most consistent golfers on tour in 2020. He finished third in this event last year, missing a playoff by one stroke.
Patrick Reed sits in second on the odds board at +1,200. Reed had an up-and-down 2020 season, and although he missed the cut in this event last year, he had five Top-10 finishes in his first 10 tournaments, including a victory in the WGC-Mexico Championship.
Tied for third are Harris English and Collin Morikawa (+1,400). English won the Tournament of Champions by crushing the generous Kapalua Plantation Course to the tune of 25-under. It was his fifth Top-10 finish in seven tournaments this season, and English looks to be in peak form thus far.
Morikawa - the highest-ranked OWGR competitor this weekend (fifth) - has stumbled a bit since winning the PGA Championship last August. In nine subsequent tournaments, he's missed the cut three times while posting just two Top-10 finishes, and will look to regain his momentum.
Rounding out the Top 5 is Daniel Berger (+1,600), who has cooled off slightly since his red-hot summer of 2020, but remains a threat on any given weekend.

What was the Sony Open Payout in 2020?
Smith's victory netted him a $1.188 million payday, with the Sony Open purse totaling $6.6 million.
How To Bet On PGA Tour Odds
The most popular way to bet on golf is by simply picking the winner, which is also referred to as an outright. There are plenty of other ways to wager, however. Some of the more popular markets include head-to-head betting, where sportsbooks pair up two golfers and you simply choose who you think will have the lower score over the course of the weekend or for one round only. Similarly, there are also 3-way betting markets (choose the best golfer among three choices) and group betting (choose the best golfer amongst a group of players).
Other ways to wager include Top-5/Top-10/Top-20 finish, top golfer by nationality, to make the cut/to not make the cut, and the leader after each round. Then, of course, there's the popular prop bet of whether or not there will be a hole in one at the tournament.
