The Sentry information
The next event is The Sentry, which takes place Jan. 4-7 at the Kapalua Resort in Hawaii. The tournament will take place on the Plantation Course, which is a par-73 that stretches 7,596 yards. Golfers will be competing for a purse of $15 million. The defending champion is Jon Rahm, who won last year’s event by carding a -27, two strokes ahead of second-place finisher Collin Morikawa. Current betting favorites to win the event include Rahm, Scottie Scheffler, and Viktor Hovland. Broadcast coverage will be on NBC and Golf Channel.
The last of the four majors for this season was the British Open (aka The Open Championship), which concluded on July 23. Brian Harman was the winner with a final score of -13. For this season’s other major events, Jon Rahm was the winner of the Masters, Brooks Koepka took the PGA Championship, and Wyndham Clark came out on top at the US Open. We’ll update this section with odds for the 2024 golf majors as they become available.
Golf 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:
When it comes to wagering on golf, 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 current event:
- Scottie Scheffler: +750
- Rory McIlroy: +800
- Jon Rahm: +900
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:
- Top five: +750
- Top 10: +500
- Top 20: +250
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
- Koepka: -196
- Dechambeau: +152
For a three-way bet, you’ll also have the option to wager on a tie.
Match winner three-way
- Max Homa: -155
- Tie: +350
- Kevin Kisner: +175
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.
- Justin Thomas +200
- Jon Rahm +125
- Cameron Young +220
