Koepka Pulls Out Of Travelers, DeChambeau Still Favored

  • Bryson DeChambeau, Rory McIlroy, and Justin Thomas all have the shortest odds to win the Travelers Championship at +1200 odds.
  • Chez Reavie has +10000 odds to win back to back Travelers Championship tournaments.
  • FedEx Cup season standings points leader Webb Simpson has +2000 odds to win the Travelers Championship.

CROMWELL, Conn. — The PGA Tour has been back for a couple of weeks now and for golf bettors, the next tournament will be the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands which runs from Thursday to Sunday.

This will mark the third tournament the PGA Tour has held amid the coronavirus pandemic and no fans will be allowed to attend the event.

The field for this tournament is stacked as nine of the top 10 players in the World Golf Ranking (WGR) will be in action.

Former top-ranked golfer in the world Brooks Koepka won’t be able to bet on this weekend as he’s withdrawn from the Travelers Championship after his caddie tested positive for Covid-19.

Koepka wasn’t the only golfer forced to withdraw from the tournament as Graeme McDowell also withdrew for the same reason.

With Koepka out, that should boost other top golfers' odds to become shorter, making pre-tournament betting the time to act.

The No. 1 ranked golfer in the world Rory McIlroy is in a three-way tie on the odds board with Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau at +1100 odds.

Travelers Championship Tournament Betting Odds

  • Bryson DeChambeau +1100
  • Justin Thomas +1100
  • Rory McIlroy +1100
  • Jon Rahm +1600
  • Dustin Johnson +2000

Last year’s Travelers tournament champion Chez Reavie has +10000 odds to win the Travelers Championship in back to back years for bettors looking for a longshot.

Between the five golfers at the top of the odds board for the Travelers Championship Jon Rahm is a sneaky play to win the tournament at +1600 odds.

He’s the No. 2 ranked golfer in the world and although he hasn’t won an event all season, this could be the tournament where he puts it all together.

PGA Travelers Championship Props

Online betting sites also have creative ways to bet on golf outside of who will win the tournament. The props range from which golfer will win the tournament to head-to-head matchups between golfers among other props.

Watson Vs. Johnson Head To Head

  • Bubba Watson +115
  • Dustin Johnson -155

There are many notable head-to-head golf betting matchups but in this one, both golfers can shoot up the leaderboard and take over a tournament at any given moment. Taking the +115 odds on Bubba Watson to finish higher than Dustin Johnson on the leaderboard at the Travelers Championship isn’t the worst payout either.

Betting on the leader after the first round has odds that come with great returns as well.

Travelers Championship First Round Leader

  • Bryson DeChambeau +2200
  • Justin Thomas +2500
  • Rory McIlroy +2500
  • Jon Rahm +3300
  • Webb Simpson +3300

Webb Simpson is coming off a victory at the RBC Heritage last week and expect him to carry that momentum into the first round of the Travelers Championship.

Take the +3300 odds on Simpson to be at the top of the leader board when the first round of play concludes on Thursday.

If not looking to bet on a specific golfer there are also tournament props at many online sportsbooks. For example, a hole in one happening at the Travelers Championship comes with +125 odds, while a two-shot minimum being -165.

Broadcasted by CBS as well as the Golf Channel, the Travelers Championship will start on Thursday with the first tee at 6:45 a.m. EST.
