Golf PGA Championship lines

The PGA Championship is the second of four major championships on the PGA and European Tours, but is conducted by the PGA of America, the organization that is made up of club professionals who operate pro shops and give lessons to local players. The tournament has been a stroke play event since 1958 and was played in August from 1969 to 2018, moving to May in 2019 to accommodate a change to the PGA Tour schedule.

The move to May increased the course options for the tournament, with cooler temperatures bringing more potential venues into the mix or better weather for longtime host courses. The site of the 2022 PGA Championship, Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma, saw 90 degree temperatures in 2007, so golfers and fans alike appreciated the more temperate weather moving forward. The tournament is generally considered the least of the four major championships, especially after the resurgence of The Open Championship in the 1970’s.

Throughout its history, the PGA Championship has produced a large number of not only first time major champions, but also winners who ended up with the victory remaining their only major title. For bettors, that fact makes it a little more difficult event to wager on, with numerous longshots, like Rich Beem, Y.A. Yang, Mark Brooks, Keegan Bradley and Jason Dufner pulling surprises to win the Wanamaker Trophy.

Since the PGA Championship is a major tournament, the PGA Championship Odds are usually available far in advance of the event, even before the full field has been announced. However, given the qualifying criteria, at least half the 156 player field, and especially most of the top contenders, are locked in months prior to the start of the tournament.
There are 20 spots in the event that are reserved for the top finishers in the PGA Professional Championship that takes place in late April, but since those mostly club pros aren’t experienced tournament players, they rarely factor into the outcome of the tournament and really aren’t legitimate threats from a wagering perspective. Since Tour winners in the year prior to the tournament qualify, there can occasionally be late additions to the field that could threaten the favorites.


The most popular wager on the PGA Championship is futures betting, where the early PGA Championship Odds are established on who will win the tournament. The favorite usually has odds of around +1000, which means a winning $100 wager returns a net profit of $1000 to the bettor, with the biggest underdogs having odds of as high as +100,000.

The week of the tournament, after the field has been finalized and players have committed to playing, other wagers are also available, particularly head to head matchups even if the two golfers aren’t actually paired with each other on the golf course. There are also proposition bets, for instance over/under wagers on the winning score, the continent in which the winning player was born and margin of victory, among others.

Live betting has also become popular, with sportsbooks offering PGA Championship Odds on scoring for a stretch of holes for particular competitors, as well as prop bets like closest to the hole or the longest drive. The increased popularity and legalization of sports wagering has greatly expanded the type of wagers that sportsbooks are willing to offer.

Yes, as a major title event, the PGA Championship is available for wagering on virtually every online and retail sportsbook, even well in advance of the tournament. For online sportsbooks, all it takes is an active account that has been funded in order to place bets using the PGA Championship Odds.
Retail sportsbooks, generally found in casino locations but increasingly opening in stadiums and arenas in states where sports betting is legal, also offer in person wagering on the PGA Championship as well as great environments to view the action live on big screen televisions with comfortable seating arrangements.
For futures wagers, the odds are usually expressed as a positive number, with +1000 indicating that a winning $100 wager will return $1000 in net winnings to the bettor, although there are some bets that could carry negative odds as well. For top players, a wager for them to make the cut could be in the area of -250, which would mean that it would take a bet of $250 in order to net $100 on a winning wager.
Head to head matchups offer PGA Championship Odds that are more like moneyline bets on team sports, with the favorite carrying negative and the underdog with positive odds. For example, if Dustin Johnson is -160 over +140 Patrick Reed in the first round of the tournament, it would take a $160 wager on Johnson to net $100 while a $100 bet on Patrick Reed would net $140 if he was able to post a lower score.
The PGA Championship is played on a different course every year, although there are a number of venues that have served as hosts multiple times, including Southern Hills, which has hosted four previous events. With the change in dates to May, there should be an expanded selection of courses available, notably the first visit to Texas for the tournament since 1968 when it will be played in Frisco in 2027.
BetUS has a ton of golf betting options, including the PGA Championship, so you’re in luck! Navigate to the BetUS website and click on the Sportsbook at the top of the page. On the left side of the screen, you’ll see a “Golf” section, then from there click “PGA Championship Odds.” Easier than a two-foot birdie putt!
For online wagering, look for the best PGA Championship Odds on one or more players, especially if there are multiple betting markets available. For futures wagering, there are usually a lot of different bets offered, not just on a player to win the tournament.
Look for bets on who finishes in the top five, top ten, top 25 or making the cut as possible wagers, which are less risky but still offer decent payouts for winning bets. Because there are 156 players in the field, picking a group of golfers to bet on is a sound strategy, especially to win, since a winning wager usually produces at least a 200% return, even if one of the favorites ends up victorious.
Instead of making one big wager, a good strategy is to pick a number of smaller bets after doing research to determine which players have the best chance at success in the tournament based on a number of factors. Past success on the layout, high finishes in recent tournaments and strong statistics in areas that the course rewards are all possible criteria to use when deciding what wagers to make and who to bet on in the PGA Championship.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
  • Fill in the amount and confirm your wager (the system will not allow you a higher amount than what is available)
