USPGA Golf Betting at Pinnacle Sportsbook

USPGA Golf Betting Preview (Oakhills, August 7-10).

Bet online at Pinnacle Sports Betting for the best odds on online golf betting this week in preparation for the PGA Championship. The first players tee off at Oakmont Hills on Thursday morning at 7:30 AM ET, so make sure to visit the Pinnacle Sportsbook review to cash some futures value.

Phil Mickelson heads into the Championship as the favourite in the USPGA betting market at Pinnacle Sportsbook, listed at 10.000* to win the tournament outright. With Tiger Woods on the sidelines, Lefty looks to win his first major at Oakmont since the 2006 Masters. Mickelson faded down the stretch to finish third at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last weekend, bogeying three of the final four holes.

Vijay Singh (21.000*) was the winner at the Invitational, cashing his first win for punters in 24 events. Singh finished with a 10-under 270 to take a one-shot victory over Lee Westwood (26.000*) and Stuart Appleby (41.000*), and is confident heading into Thursday.

View the Latest Golf Betting OddsCould this be the year a European-born golfer wins the PGA Championship? The Pinnacle sportbook has British Open champion Padraig Harrington priced at 19.000*, with Spaniard Sergio Garcia posted at 18.000*. A European player hasn\’t won the Championship since 1930, so tread lightly when laying down on Harrington, Garcia, and others this week.

The Oakmont Hills course has been lengthened, had some fairways narrowed, and had bunkers added for the tourney. Still, the greens remain the toughest part of the course, meaning sharp punters are handicapping players solid with the putter and accurate off the tee. Zach Johnson (76.000*) is fourth on the Tour in driving accuracy at 74.9%, while Jeff Quinney (201.000*) is fourth in putting average at 1.736.

Johnson and Quinney are also battling for the final spot on the U.S. Ryder Cup team, which is up for grabs with Woods out of the season. Also on the cusp of making the squad are D.J. Trahan (136.000*), Sean O\’Hair (76.000*), and public favourite (101.000*) Rocco Mediate.
