After finishing second to Stenson in The Open, Phil Mickelson is a popular pick at CRIS (4%) to win the PGA Championship, but it’s actually Sergio Garcia (6%) receiving the most tickets to win it all there. Other popular bets at CRIS are Spieth (5%) and DJ (5%) in terms of tickets but the action is pretty balanced.

At William Hill, it’s DJ and Mickelson getting the most tickets with 8%. In terms of the actual money wagered, it’s DJ and Spieth with 13% and Mickelson with 10%. Big Phil is usually a popular bet among the public and it’s no surprise to see a lot of action on him after an impressive British Open, a tournament which his score would have won in 141 of 145 instances.

A player I really like in this tournament is Matt Kuchar, who can be found at around 40:1 odds around the market to win. I locked him in prior to the Canadian Open, a tournament in which he had a solid performance that could give him some momentum this week. Although Dustin Johnson appears to be at the top of his game, some of the other top players like Spieth and McIlroy haven’t exactly been dominating recently and Kuchar has been due for a major. After Henrik Stenson won his first major at The Open at the age of 40, I believe Kuchar can do the same this week at the age of 38. At the very least, [easy-tweet tweet=”Kuchar to finish in the Top 10 at +400 odds is providing great value at the PGA Championship.”]

And here are some prop bets for the tournament via BetOnline and one from 5Dimes:

Will there be a hole-in-one?
Yes +135, No -175

Will there be a playoff to determine the winner?
Yes +300, No -400

Will there be a wire-to-wire winner? (Leading after each round)
Yes +1000, No -2500

Lowest Individual Round (via 5Dimes):
Over 64.5 +120, Under 64.5 -140

What will be the winner nationality?
American +100, European +200, Rest of World +300
