McIlroy Headlines Odds as PGA Tour Restarts

sgpodcast golf odds roundup

Rory McIlroy faltered in the PGA Tour’s return to action last week at the Charles Schwab Challenge, but he still dominates on the golf betting lines at sportsbooks monitored by for both this week’s tournament and the majors coming later this year.

McIlroy shot a closing-round 74 at the Charles Schwab Challenge last week to end up in a tie for 32nd place at the tournament, after opening the event as the betting favorite. Still, the world’s top-ranked golfer is back atop the board this week as the +1200 betting favorite on the odds to win the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. 

That puts McIlroy just ahead of Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm, and Justin Thomas on those betting lines, as they sit deadlocked at +1400 odds to win the RBC Heritage, with Xander Schauffele at +2200, Collin Morikawa at +2500, and each of Justin Rose, Patrick Reed, and Webb Simpson set at +2800. Daniel Berger, who won the Charles Schwab Challenge in a playoff, has been set at +3300 odds to make it back-to-back wins this week.

And while McIlroy is the favorite for this week, he’s also the favorite on the early odds to win the 2020 Masters. That event is scheduled to take place at Augusta from November 12-15.

McIlroy is the +650 favorite on the Masters odds, as he looks to win the tournament for the first time in his career. McIlroy had a streak of five straight top-10 finishes at the event come to an end last year when he wound up in a tie for 21st place. His best career result at Augusta came in 2015 when he finished the tournament in fourth place.

Brooks Koepka and Tiger Woods follow McIlroy on the latest 2020 Masters odds at +1000, with Koepka also the +800 favorite on the 2020 U.S. Open odds at betting sites ahead of McIlroy at +1000. McIlroy won the U.S. Open in 2011 and tied for ninth place last year. That tournament is scheduled for September 17-20 at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York.

And the 2020 PGA Championship is set for August 6-9 at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, with McIlroy the +800 betting favorite for that tournament ahead of Koepka and Dustin Johnson at +1100. McIlroy claimed the PGA Championship in both 2012 and 2014.
