Bermuda Championship Odds: Betting On A Field Void Of Top Ranked Players

The PGA Tour heads to Bermuda Island off the coast of North Carolina for the second annual Bermuda Championship. The field has just one player ranked in the Top-50 of the World Golf Rankings, and it’s defending champions Brendon Todd. His story is one of a longshot and underdog making it back on the PGA Tour the past two years. Read more in my Bermuda Championship tournament preview and odds at TheLines.

As I projected over the weekend, young rising star Will Zalatoris to be the favorite, and he’s +1150 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

Last week was a good one at the ZOZO Championship, as we posted one match-up winner and won and bet others along with the outright tournament winner on Patrick Cantlay.

The top ranked pros are taking the week off in preparation for the following week’s Houston Open followed the the Masters Tournament at Augusta for the first time in the fall.
