Scottie Scheffler and Jordan Spieth continue to receive the most betting attention ahead of this weekend’s PGA Championship at Southern Hills.
This has been Scheffler’s breakthrough season after knocking on the door continually last year, winning four events, including last month’s Masters.
Spieth has also been sensational of late, winning the RBC Heritage in April and finishing 2nd place last weekend at the AT&T Byron Nelson Classic.
Additionally, Spieth needs a PGA Championship to secure the career Grand Slam, and bettors are backing his recent form and course fit to get the job done this weekend.

- Hideki Matsuyama – 5.6%

- Jon Rahm – 4.9%
- Collin Morikawa – 4.8%

Windy conditions and other inclement weather are in the forecast, so it’s prudent to monitor the tee times of the prospective golfers bettors are looking to back.
Surely, it will make for an exciting weekend, one that could include Scheffler’s fifth win or Spieth’s completion of the Grand Slam – or even a Tiger sighting.
