2018 PGA Championship odds: Dustin Johnson enters Bellerive as a transparent favorite

Following his considerable opening over a weekend during a 2018 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, Dustin Johnson has emerged as a favorite for this week’s PGA Championship, a final vital of 2018. Johnson shot 66-64 on a weekend during Firestone Country Club to stand into a tip 5 on a leaderboard, and Bellerive Country Club should fit his diversion perfectly.

Johnson is assimilated atop a contingency house by Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Tiger Woods. Of that group, Spieth is looking for a career grand slam, while McIlroy is going for his third PGA Championship crown. Woods is, of course, looking for his fifth; it would be his initial PGA Championship pretension given 2009 and initial vital feat given 2013. Thomas is attempting to win his second in a quarrel after holding Quail Hollow final year.

Here’s a demeanour during a contingency for all a tip players forward of a 2018 PGA Championship.

Favorites

  • Dustin Johnson: 19/2
  • Rory McIlroy: 12-1
  • Jordan Spieth: 12-1
  • Justin Thomas: 16-1
  • Tiger Woods: 16-1

Thomas is entrance off a win during Bridgestone and is flattering simply a best value here. Tiger is a misfortune value to me. we only don’t see any trail for him to win this golf tournament. 

Other favorites

  • Justin Rose: 18-1
  • Rickie Fowler: 20-1
  • Brooks Koepka: 20-1
  • Tommy Fleetwood: 20-1
  • Jon Rahm: 20-1
  • Francesco Molinari: 22-1
  • Jason Day: 22-1

Day and Rahm lift an eyebrow here. So does Koepka given his inclination to play best during a biggest events in a world. I’m all a approach out on Molinari winning dual majors in a row.

Fringe picks

  • Hideki Matsuyama: 33-1
  • Henrik Stenson: 35-1
  • Patrick Reed: 35-1
  • Alex Noren: 40-1
  • Sergio Garcia: 40-1
  • Xander Schauffele: 45-1
  • Paul Casey: 45-1
  • Tony Finau: 45-1

Finau during 45-1 is like stealing. we don’t adore Garcia or Noren on this course, and we don’t unequivocally like Matsuyama during all right now.

Everyone else

  • Bubba Watson: 50-1
  • Phil Mickelson: 50-1
  • Patrick Cantlay 50-1
  • Marc Leishman: 50-1
  • Matt Kuchar: 55-1
  • Adam Scott: 55-1
  • Branden Grace: 66-1
  • Webb Simpson: 66-1

I don’t unequivocally adore anybody in this group, though how crazy is it to see Lefty during 50-1 (!) during a vital championship.
