DraftKings PGA Championship Odds Boosts to Watch

May 19, 2021

The PGA Championship tees off from the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, with the biggest names in golf vying for another major championship. And before the action gets started, there are a few odds boosts for the tournament from DraftKings Sportsbook that bettors may want to take a look at. These boosts in particular are worth looking at as bettors could ride them to some increased profits in the Odds Boosts section of the site.

Making the Cut Parlay

You can’t win the PGA Championship without making the cut, and some of the big names in the sport are the subject of this boost related to making the cut. DraftKings is offering odds boosted from +125 to +150 on the foursome of Bryson DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm and Jordan Speith to all make the cut at this tournament.

Of course, DeChambeau thought he missed the cut at the Wells Fargo event just a couple of weeks ago, flying home after the second round. He found out he actually made the cut, and had to fly back to the tournament, where he finished ninth. If DeChambeau and the other three competitors in this bet all make the cut, bettors can cash in on +150 odds.

Cameron Smith Top Aussie

There are several Australian golfers who could come out on top in any major championship event. Players like Marc Leishman and Adam Scott have proven they belong at events like the PGA Championship, and Cameron Smith has done the same. Here, bettors can wager on the top Aussie in the World Golf Rankings to have the best finish for an Australian, with odds boosted from +250 to +290.

Adam Scott has finished in the top-three at this event previously, doing so in 2006 and 2018. If he were to do so again, it would be very difficult for Smith to come out on top among Aussies. But Smith is certainly capable of finishing ahead of the other elite Aussies in this tournament, and could be worth a look at the adjusted price.

Rory McIlroy to Win

Rory McIlroy has won two PGA Championships in his career, and will look for a third this weekend. Bettors can get McIlroy at a boosted price at DraftKings, with his price being boosted from +1150 to +1250. McIlroy has proven over the years that he is more than capable of claiming majors, winning at this course during a previous edition of the PGA Championship. And the extra payout here would sweeten the deal when betting on the tournament favorite.

Of course, the field this year is completely loaded. Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Brooks Koepka and several others will be there to challenge McIlroy even if he does play well. And golf majors always feature a dark horse or two making a run deep into the weekend. But if a bettor feels strongly enough about McIlroy to pull the trigger on him, the boosted price is certainly worth checking out.
