Canadian Open information

The Canadian Open takes place from June 8 to 11 at the Oakdale Golf & Country Club in Toronto. Rory McIlroy is the betting favorite and will be seeking his third straight victory at the event. Other top names in the field and on the odds board include Tyrell Hatton and Matthew Fitzpatrick . The course is a par 72 that stretches 7,264 yards, while the total purse is $9 million. Television coverage will be available on CBS and Golf Channel throughout the event.

Golf futures

Here are the odds for the US Open, which gets underway on June 15. 

At last year’s US Open, Matthew Fitzpatrick outpaced the field by carding a -6. Scheffler and Zalatoris tied for second place, a stroke behind. The last of the four majors is the British Open (aka The Open Championship), which starts on July 20.  

Cameron Smith was the winner last time around at -20, with Cameron Young in second at -19. McIlroy finished third at -18. While the British Open is the last of the four yearly golf majors, there are still several other tournaments before the PGA Tour season comes to a close.

Golf betting odds explained

There are a number of options for betting on golf. You can wager on who will win a tournament, bet on the finishing positions of the participants, try to identify the best-performing golfer from a pair or group and much more. Here’s a look at how various golf bets work:

Tournament winner

For golf betting, the featured attraction often is the winner of a tournament. There will be odds for all of the golfers who are scheduled to compete. Since choosing the outright winner from a field that’s typically filled with 100+ participants is challenging, the odds can be fairly long, even for the favorites.

To win the Canadian Open: 

Finishing positions

Beyond wagering on the winner, you can also bet on where a golfer will place at the event. There are several options for each tournament, including the top five, top 10 and top 20. For a general rule, the higher the finish, the higher the odds will be. As an example, consider the below odds from a previous tournament. 

Tiger Woods finishing position


You can also wager on who will do the best in a tournament out of pairings or groups of golfers. The odds for head-to-heads look like a standard moneyline bet: negative for favorites and positive for underdogs.

Brooks Koepka vs. Bryson Dechambeau head-to-head

For a three-way bet, you’ll also have the option to wager on a tie.

Match winner three-way

If you are betting on a three-ball group, the favorite will sometimes have negative odds but could also have the lowest of three positive numbers.

Golf odds FAQ

How do golf betting odds work? 

Golf odds work similarly to other sports. The odds represent the likelihood of an outcome happening, whether it be the winner of a tournament or the best-scoring golfer in a head-to-head matchup. 

How much could you potentially win on +1000 odds in golf betting? 

The return on a winning bet at odds of +1000 will depend on how much you wagered. For example, if you wagered $10 at odds of +1000 and won, you would be looking at $100 in profit. A winning $100 bet at +1000 would get you $1,000 in profit.
