Betting favorites, odds for Valhalla

2024 Masters

While the PGA Tour is in Charlotte, North Carolina, this week for the circuit’s sixth signature event of the year — Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club — it’s easy to look ahead to next week’s PGA Championship at Valhalla in Louisville, Kentucky, the second men’s major championship of 2024.

Scottie Scheffler, the No. 1 player in the world and winner of four of his last five starts including the Masters and Players Championship, is the heavy betting favorite at +350 (7/2). Defending champion Brooks Koepka is hoping to claim his fourth PGA Championship title. After winning last week at LIV Golf Singapore, the five-time major winner comes in at 16/1 to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy once again.

Let’s take a look an early look at the top 10 betting favorites for the 2024 PGA Championship at Valhalla.
