There are plenty of ways to get into the betting action for the 2019 PGA Championship, the second major of the season. Play gets underway from Bethpage Black Course in Farmingdale, N.Y. on Thursday, May 16.
The 2019 PGA Championship offers action on the outright winner, if a particular player will earn a top 5 finish, and even head-to-head matchups. And before you lock in your wagers on the PGA Championship, you have to see what SportsLine's Mike McClure has to say.
McClure built SportsLine's proprietary computer model, which has nailed four majors entering the weekend, including Patrick Reed's groundbreaking win last year at the Masters. It also called Tiger Woods' deep run in last year's PGA Championship despite being a 25-1 long shot.
The model has been spot-on early in the 2018-19 season. It was high on champion Rory McIlroy at the 2019 Players Championship, projecting him as one of the top two contenders from the start. It also correctly predicted Brooks Koepka's (9-1) victory at the CJ Cup. Additionally, it correctly called Bryson DeChambeau's (9-1) seven-shot victory at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Anyone who has followed the model is WAY up.
Now, McClure has studied the latest 2019 PGA Championship odds and locked in his best bets.
One pick we'll give away: McClure is backing Jason Day (+120) as a slight underdog in a head-to-head matchup against Jon Rahm.
Day enters the 2019 PGA Championship playing extremely well. He finished T-5 at the Masters and has finished inside the top 10 in three of his last four starts at the PGA Championship, which includes his lone major victory in 2015. The 31-year-old Australian also ranks inside the top 15 on the PGA Tour in scoring average (69.950) and birdie average (4.68).
McClure also pounded bets with plus-money payouts, so you can get a better return on your PGA Championship picks. He's revealed four golfers he's backing to finish on top of the leaderboard at the PGA Championship, including a MASSIVE long shot. You ABSOLUTELY need to see this pick before locking in any bets of your own.
