Brooks Koepka stole the show at a rain-soaked third round of the PGA Championship Saturday. The LIV Golf star surged up the leaderboard with a 4-under 66 in the tough conditions and finds himself in sole possession of the lead (-6) entering Sunday’s final round. The PGA Championship betting odds have Koepka now as the clear favorite to win the second major of the season, and bettors are jumping on the Koepka train.
PGA Championship Betting: Bettors Love Brooks Koepka
Per DraftKings Sportsbook, Koepka (+120) is the favorite to win the PGA Championship. He is followed by Viktor Hovland (+320), Corey Conners (+500), Scottie Scheffler (+800), Bryson DeChambeau (+1200) and Rory McIlroy (+2000). DraftKings is offering users an 18% profit boost on all live wagers for the PGA Championship.
The PGA Championship betting odds have fully shifted into Koepka’s favor after his impressive third round, and bettors are flocking to get some action in on Koepka as well. Per BetMGM data analyst John Ewing, Koepka has the largest number of bets (10.1%) and most money (13.8%) wagered on him to come away victorious.
Koepka also found himself playing in the final group at The Masters last month but ultimately fell short and allowed Jon Rahm to win the green jacket. Koepka admitted his mindset leading up to that final round was not where it should have been and promised to be more aggressive this time around.
“Learning what I learned at Augusta kind of helped today,” Koepka said Saturday, per Fox Sports. “I won’t do it again the rest of my career. That doesn’t mean that you can’t go play bad. You can play good, you’ll play bad, but I’ll never have that mindset or that won’t ever be the reason.”
Koepka has four major championships in his career and two wins at the PGA Championship. But his last major win came in 2019, and it has been a long road back to the top. He has expressed regret for coming back too soon from knee surgery in 2019 despite his body not being fully healed.
Now Koepka looks like the same player who was always a threat at major championships and has confidence that he can dominate the field. After his close call at The Masters, Koepka is proving once again that he is one of the very best golfers on the planet. The PGA Championship betting report indicates he is far and away the most likely player to hoist the trophy later today, and that scenario will make many bettors extremely happy.
