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.

The island of Bermuda sits off the North Carolina coast, and the Robert Trent Jones design is an oceanside course with a stunning, short layout. Port Royal is a fully public golf course and Bermuda’s golf crown jewel. The course was renovated in 2009 by Robert Rulewich as part of a $16 million project to draw a world class tournament, which it did with the Grand Slam event and now the PGA Tour.
