USPGA Championship Betting Odds
Picking a winner from this field is extremely tough given the depth of the game at the moment with a whole host of players coming into the final major in flying form.
Chief among those is Justin Thomas (16/1) who is the defending USPGA Championship winner and could not have more confidence at the moment. The American cruised to victory in the WGC Bridgestone last week which is always a great form guide for the PGA and it is hard to argue with his claims as he looks to defend his title.
World #1 Dustin Johnson (10/1) is likely to go off favourite with the 34-year-old also bang in form right now. A win in the Canadian open was followed up with a tie for third place at Bridgestone which included a -6 under par final round on Sunday which should put him right in the mix at a course which should suit.
Rory Mcilroy (14/1) is a former PGA Champion and shown glimpses of form over the past month which makes him interesting, whilst double US Open hero Brooks Koepka (20/1) is also one for the shortlist at Bellerive.
Tiger Woods will appeal to some at 28/1 to win his first Major since 2008 but he is yet to fully convince he can stay the stay the course for four rounds and he remains one to watch, rather than bet.
Thomas and Thorbjorn The Picks
Of the leading contender is is Justin Thomas who sticks out like a sore thumb in terms of the most likely winner. A defending champion who can't stop winning and should be high on confidence makes him an excellent bet at 16/1 with Betfred.
Punters looking for a bigger priced each-way bets should look very closely at the in-form Thorbjorn Olesen. The Dane was a tie for 3rd at Bridgestone and that's off the back of a recent win in Italy and a top 15 performance at the Open Championship, which means he looks ready to take the next step.
Olesen looks a great each bet at 80/1 with Ladbrokes given his quality and confidence.
