After a few events in a row in California, the next stop for the PGA is in Florida with a WGC event, this week’s Workday Championship at The Concession. It’s quite the event with a massive purse, some top-tier PGA professionals playing, and of course a terrific event for golf bettors as well. There are two PGA events going on this week, as some golfers are in Puerto Rico but the focus is certainly a WGC event. This event used to be called the WGC-Mexico Championship, but was moved to Florida this year.

Let’s take a look at a course preview, odds for the event, our picks, top golf betting apps and more surrounding the 2021 WGC Workday Championship.

Top Golf Betting Apps

When it comes to betting on golf, choosing the right legal sports betting platform is essential. Not only for normal necessities such as depositing, a smooth app, customer service, but for prices. When you wager on golf, most bettors will bet on the outright market. This makes prices so important, as you can get better prices on different books available to you. For example, Dustin Johnson may be +500 on one book, but +650 on another. Betting that +650 will help make you a better bettor long term. With that said, which sportsbooks are the best ones to wager on? Here’s a look at two of our favorites, whether you’re wagering on this week’s tournament, the Masters, or the US Open.

Tournament Betting History

This PGA event is in Florida for the first time, as it has been called the WGC-Mexico Championship in years prior. In last year’s event, Patrick Reed won by one stroke over Bryson DeChambeau. In 2019, the winner was Dustin Johnson, also called the WGC-Mexico. This year’s first WGC event is called the Workday Championship, but here’s a look at the odds for last season’s event in terms of the top 5 to win.

  • Rory McIlroy (+600)
  • Dustin Johnson (+700)
  • Jon Rahm (+1000)
  • Justin Thomas (+1000)
  • Adam Scott (+1600)

As mentioned above, the winner of last year’s event was Patrick Reed, whose odds were +3300 to win. This means a $10 wager would have returned $330, and a $100 bet would have returned $3300.
