2014 PGA Championship Odds at ValhallaThe fourth grand slam tournament of the 2014 PGA Tour takes place at Valhalla Country Club in Louisville, Kentucky for the 96th annual PGA Championship. Jason Dufner (PGA Championship Golf Betting Lines: 125 to 1  at 5 Dimes) will be looking to defend his 2013 championship. Dufner has had a decent year with 4 top 10 finishes this year, but has yet to grab a win and has been less consistent than most tour stars with odds lower than 50 to 1.  In the 3 major tournaments, Dufner made the cut in only one, in which he finished 51st in the British Open last month. Dufner’s average line amongst the books is around 35 to 1.  While this number may attract some golf fans, this line is not tempting in the least to any sharp futures player.

We really liked California native Rickie Fowler (PGA Championship Golf Betting Lines: 22 to 1  at 5 Dimesin last month’s Open Championship, and he did not disappoint with an impressive 2nd place finish. Fowler has recently altered his swing for more control and is playing as well as anyone in major tournaments (this side of Rory McIlroy).  We still think Rickie has tremendous value once again at 25 to 1, with consecutive runner-up finishes in the last two major tournaments. Fowler also had a 5th place finish at the Masters.  His 3 top 5 finishes in each major tournament this season can’t be ignored. If you like him at 25 to 1, don’t hesitate to pull the trigger.

5DimesIt should come as no surprise that this year’s British Open winner Rory McIlory is the favorite (at 7 to 1 @ Bovada to win this year’s PGA Championship). McIlroy dominated last month’s Open Championship, jumping out to a lead and never looking back with a wire to wire win. McIlroy has had seven top 10 finishes this season, and is more likely than anyone to be in the mix to win in Valhalla.

Angel Cabrera (PGA Championship Golf Betting Lines: 80 to 1 at 5 Dimes) is a longshot, but offers some value.  We love Angel Cabrera’s controlled power.  He won the Greenbrier Classic in early July, edging the 2nd place finisher by 2 strokes. It was Cabrera’s first win since claiming the green jacket in 2009. Cabrera has two major wins under his belt, and definitely has the experience to make a run in the PGA championship. At these odds, Cabrera is worth a shot as he always seems to make some noise in majors when its least expected.

The last time the PGA championship made its way to Valhalla, it was back in 2000. The winner of that tournament was none other than Tiger Woods (PGA Championship Golf Betting Lines: 66 to 1 at 5 Dimes). Woods didn’t have the most impressive showing at last month’s Open Championship, but he was encouraged by the way he was hitting the ball and was still recovering from an injury.  He hit more fairways than most of the field at the British Open, including Rory McIlroy.  Woods’ progress should be monitored in this weekend’s WGC-Bridgestone invitational. At 10 to 1, and with Woods trying to make his way back from injury, these odds don’t offer a lot of value. But, with a strong opening round, 10 to 1 will look like a bargain.
