Best Specials for the Travelers: Cutline Odds and H2Hs

  • The best bets for the Travelers Championship are Bovada specials with good odds on the exact cutline and first round head to heads.
  • Four of the past five Travelers have had the cutline set at 138, with Bovada giving +180 odds on the trend to occur again.
  • First round Travelers Championship odds can be used to bet on first round matchups set at Bovada, with Davis Riley, Emiliano Grillo, Cameron Young, and Si Woo Kim the best bets.

CROMWELL, Conn. - When the Travelers Championship tees off on Thursday morning, many bettors will have good reasons for betting on the Bovada specials for the annual tournament at TPC River Highlands.

Some of the best specials at Bovada have plus odds for the 2023 Travelers Championship. Specifically, bets on the cutline and first round matchups at USA online sportsbooks are among the best.

Betting on the Cutline Score at the Travelers

The best Bovada special wager for the Travelers Championship is on the cutline, with players getting three different options all with plus odds.

Cut Line Score

  • Over 138 +180
  • Exactly 138 +200
  • Under 138 +135

Betting on the history of the cutline is a strong angle to take on this wager, as the past five years have made it relatively clear that the best bet is on the cutline getting set at exactly 138 with +200 odds.

  • 2022 Travelers Cutline: 138 Strokes
  • 2021 Travelers Cutline: 138 Strokes
  • 2020 Travelers Cutline: 136 Strokes
  • 2019 Travelers Cutline: 138 Strokes
  • 2018 Travelers Cutline: 138 Strokes

With TPC River Highlands playing as a Par 70 course, that cutline equates to -2 through the first two rounds.

Bettors may point to a better field in 2023 compared to the past five years as the Travelers is a designated event this year, which is different from years past.

That increase in talent level should influence bettors to stay away from betting on the over 138 strokes bet with +180 odds, but may not cause the cutline to drop any lower.

The field at the Travelers has improved, but playing the week after the U.S. Open in Los Angeles may cause some players to wear down physically. According to AP News, Jon Rahm said: "I can tell you with certain confidence that I probably wouldn’t have been here even though I love the tournament so much."

Rahm said that regarding the scheduling right after the U.S. Open, with the reigning Masters winner likely not the only player potentially worn down as there is a large crossover in player pools at designated events and majors such as the U.S. Open.
