Odds for PGA Tour this Week: Quicken Loans National Preview

Odds for PGA Tour this Week

After an exciting finish to the British Open, we pick up with the PGA Tour this week at the Quicken Loans National. Justin Rose, who won the event last year, will be trying to put his 6th place finish at the British Open behind him, and successfully defend his title. He won’t have as much competition as he did at St. Andrews, but he will still face challenges from some of the best golfers in the world.

Joining Rose at the Quicken Loans National are other golfers like Rickie Fowler, Tiger Woods, Jimmy Walker, Vijay Singh, and Bo Van Pelt. Since the start of this event in 2007, Tiger Woods and Justin Rose are the only golfers to win the event twice, and with the state of Woods’ golf game, Rose is the golfer with a realistic chance of winning his third Quicken Loans National.

Going by the PGA Tour odds this week, Rose has the best odds of winning the tournament, and his odds to win are set at +925. He is followed by Rickie Fowler at +1025, Jimmy Walker at +1725, and Justin Thomas at +3300.

Of the four top contenders, Justin Rose has been the most successful so far this season. He has one win, and five top 10 finishes, which include a second place finish at the Masters, and a 6th place finish at the Open Championship. 

Rickie Fowler has also had a decent year, but has to be a little disappointed with his season, because he came in with high expectations, after playing so well last year. He has a win at The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, and four top 10 finishes, but he missed the cut at the U.S. Open, and finished 30th at the British Open, He will be hoping to bounce back with a win here.

Jimmy Walker is currently having a good season, with two wins on the year, and six top 10 finishes. Unfortunately for him, he hasn’t been able to sustain the early success he had during the year, and has finished better than 30th in only one of his last seven tournaments.

My Pick: The odds for the PGA Tour this week shows that there is no overwhelming favorite at this tournament, with that being said, I think Rickie Fowler will play better than the rest of the field and will win the tournament and the $1.2 million purse.

Next week, the PGA Tour will move to Akron, Ohio, for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Last year, the event was won by Rory McIlroy, but he won’t be able to defend his title due to an ankle injury he suffered prior to the Open Championship.

The entire field of players that will be participating in the event have not been announced, but the list of the confirmed players that will be in attendance include Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Ian Poulter, Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose, Graeme McDowell, Sergio Garcia, Jimmy Walker, Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, and Adam Scott. With so many big names in the field, this should be a very exciting tournament. One notable absence at the invitational this year is eight time champion Tiger Woods, who isn’t going to be at the event.

The odds for the event have not yet been released, but Jordan Spieth will likely be the tournament favorite, followed by Bubba Watson, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott, and Phil Mickelson.

Jordan Spieth has been the best golfer on the PGA Tour this year, which is the reason he will be the favorite at this tournament. The 22 year old golfer has won five tournaments this year, including the Masters and U.S. Open. He also has 13 top 10 finishes in his 18 starts this year, which includes six top five finishes. He barely missed out on the playoffs at the British Open, finishing 4th at the tournament, and he will be looking to bounce back from the disappointment with his sixth win of the year.

Bubba Watson missed the cut at the British Open, but bounced back with a 2nd place finish at the Canadian Open. So far this season, he has two wins and six top 10 finishes, and he will be trying to add another trophy before the final major of the year.

Phil Mickelson is still looking for his first win since winning the Open Championship in 2013. He didn’t play very well last year, but his game has improved this year and he has three top 10 finishes in 13 events this year, including a 2nd place finish at the Masters.

Adam Scott won this event in 2011, which is why he will be considered one of the favorites to win it again. He was very inconsistent after parting ways with caddie Steve Williams earlier this year, but he managed to convince Williams to come out of retirement and caddie for him part time, and the decision has produced positive results. Scott still doesn’t have a win this year, but he has three top 10 finishes, which include a 4th place finish at the U.S. Open, and a 10th place finish at the Open Championship.

My Pick: As previously mentioned, Jordan Spieth has been playing better than any golfer this year, which is why he is my pick to win the PGA Tour event this week.

Another PGA Tour event taking place this week is the Barracuda Championship, which will take place in Reno, Nevada. This tournament is an alternate tournament, which means the winner does not get an invitation to the Masters next year. The winner does get 24 points towards their Official World Golf Rankings, as well as 300 FedEx Cup points, a two year PGA Tour exemption, and an invitation to the PGA Championship. 

Since most of the big names in golf will be at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, the Barracuda Championship will field some of the lesser known names in golf, but that doesn’t mean that the tournament will lack excitement. As of right now, the list of participants at the event has not been released, neither have the odds on the favorites to win the tournament, which means that you will have to check back to find out who will be at the tournament, and who are our PGA Tour picks this week.
