2021 PGA Championship Odds

The 2021 PGA Championship gets underway this week with Collin Morikawa attempting to win back-to-back PGA Championships. Last year's winner is sitting some way down the PGA Championship odds board, with no less than eight players being favored ahead of Morikawa. 

It will come as no surprise to find out the 2021 PGA Championship odds market is pretty congested near the top end, especially when you consider there are sixteen past winners in the 2021 PGA Championship field. 

Rory McIlroy returned to form at the Wells Fargo Championship a couple of weeks ago and has been the betting favorite. The Northern Irishman tops the PGA Championship odds market with odds of +1200. 

Jon Rahm has been knocking on the door over the last few months on the PGA Tour, Rahm's the joint-second favorite in the PGA Championship odds market alongside Jordan Spieth. 

Both Jon Rahm and Jordan Spieth are currently +1400 with FanDuel Sportsbook to win the PGA Championship. 

DraftKings Sportsbook have set Justin Thomas' PGA Championship odds at +1200, however, FanDuel Sportsbook have stuck with +1500 for Thomas to win the second Major of the year. 

Six months ago you'd have expected both Bryson DeChambeau and Dustin Johnson to be topping the 2021 PGA Championship odds market, however, DeChambeau is currently +1600, and Dustin Johnson's latest PGA Championship odds sit at +1800. 

The only other two players with shorter PGA Championship odds than Collin Morikawa are Xander Schauffele and Viktor Hovland. 

It's worth giving a special mention to Brooks Koepka given his Major record, Koepka had a less than impressive return to the PGA Tour at the AT&T Byrson Nelson, and following that Bet365 have made him +4500 to win the PGA Champs.
