PGA Championship odds 2022: To Brooks, or not to Brooks, that is the question
There was a time not too long ago when getting Brooks Koepka at anything higher than 20-1 to win a major would be cause for celebration. Dancing in the streets. Auto-hammer time. Everybody gets rich. And so on, and so forth.
To win this week's PGA Championship at Southern Hills, Koepka is not just 20-1 or higher, he's more than double those odds, checking in at 45-1 on the DraftKings Sportsbook (the highest odds we found). It's a dream come true number for Brooks bettors, the four-time major champ being the poster boy for "win equity," particularly in the majors.
And yet, the buzz around Brooks just doesn't seem to be there, a product of him missing the cut at the Masters and then pulling out of this past week's AT&T Byron Nelson, meaning he's not played a competitive round since Friday at Augusta National. Prior to that, though he did finish T-5 in the Match Play and T-12 at the Valspar, not to mention he'd already posted a T-3 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open earlier this year. Still, even at 45-1, Koepka doesn't seem to be receiving his normal alottment of betting love.
Most folks will be fixated on Jordan Spieth, who seems to be peaking at the right time and as a result has dropped to as low as 16-1 (FanDuel Sportsbook) to win the career grand slam. In his last two starts on the PGA Tour, Spieth has won and finished runner-up.
As for the top of the board, Jon Rahm and Masters winner Scottie Scheffler are co-favorites at 12-1 (BetMGM), while Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy and Collin Morikawa check in next, all in the teens odds-wise. Dustin Johnson, who tied for 12th at the Masters and then missed the cut at Harbour Town and tied for 59th at the Byron Nelson, can be found as high as 25-1 to pick up his third major title. Oh, and who could forget the elephant in the room named Tiger Woods, who is 60-1 (!!) to win 15 years after winning the PGA at this same venue.
Below are the consensus odds for every player in the 2022 PGA Championship field:
