2024 PGA Championship odds, field: Surprising PGA picks from golf model that’s nailed 11 majors

Valhalla Golf Club will host the 2024 PGA Championship, marking the fourth time the course in Louisville, Ky., will host the tournament. Tiger Woods (2000) and Rory McIlroy (2014) were the last two winners to host the Wanamaker Trophy at Valhalla, while Brooks Koepka enters the PGA Championship 2024 as the defending PGA champion. They, along with other past winners like Phil Mickelson and Justin Thomas, are granted a lifetime exemption into the event each year. The 2024 PGA Championship begins on Thursday, May 16, and fresh off his second Masters victory, Scottie Scheffler is the 4-1 favorite in the 2024 PGA Championship odds.

Jon Rahm is next in line at 9-1, while McIlroy is at 10-1 to became a three-time PGA champion. Coming off an impressive runner-up in his first major start, Ludvig Aberg has 16-1 PGA Championship odds 2024, tied with Koepka. Before locking in any 2024 PGA Championship picks of your own, entering picks on sites like DraftKings or FanDuel, or finalizing PGA Championship props and PGA Championship Pick Six entries, be sure to see the 2024 PGA Championship golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

Our proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up almost $10,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure’s model correctly predicted Scottie Scheffler would finish on top of the leaderboard at the 2024 Masters, the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and The Players Championship this season. McClure also included Hideki Matsuyama in his best bets to win the 2024 Genesis Invitational. That bet hit at +9000, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned nearly $1,000!

The model also predicted Jon Rahm would be victorious at the 2023 Sentry Tournament of Champions and The American Express. At the 2023 Masters, the model was all over Rahm’s second career major victory heading into the weekend. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the third round, but the model still projected him as the winner. It was the second straight Masters win for the model, which also nailed Scheffler winning in 2022.

In addition, McClure’s best bets included Nick Taylor (70-1) winning the 2023 RBC Canadian Open, Jason Day (17-1) winning outright at the 2023 AT&T Byron Nelson, and Rickie Fowler (14-1) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic.

This same model has also nailed a whopping 11 majors entering the weekend and hit the Masters three straight years. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the PGA Championship 2024 field finalized, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2024 PGA Championship predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2024 PGA Championship: Brooks Koepka, a three-time PGA champion and one of the favorites, stumbles and doesn’t even crack the top 10. Koepka has five major tournament wins on his resume and a reputation for elevating his level of play in big events. However, his last two major starts haven’t gone well as he was 45th at the Masters, which followed a 64th-place finish at last year’s Open Championship. He’s failed to shoot par in each of his last seven rounds at major tournaments.

After notching three tournament wins in 2023, including last year’s PGA Championship, it has been tough sledding for Koepka in 2024. He has no victories, or even top-fives, and across his six starts, he has three times as many finishes outside the top 25 (three) as he has inside the top 10 (one). He played Valhalla at the 2014 PGA Championship and finished in a tie for 15th place, but that placement ranks just eighth out of his 11 career PGA Championship starts.

Another surprise: Collin Morikawa, a 25-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He’s a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Morikawa is coming off a third place at the Masters, further cementing his position as one of the game’s elite golfers in majors. Morikawa, whose first of his two major wins came at the 2020 PGA Championship, has an astounding eight top-10s over his last 15 major starts.

The 27-year-old is strong with both his driver and his putter, with the former placing him fifth on the PGA Tour in driving accuracy percentage (77.61%). On the greens, Morikawa ranks in the top 30 in both putting average (1.731) and one-putt percentage (42.8%). Those strengths have allowed Morikawa to break par, as his birdie or better percentage of 36.08% ranks in the top 10 on tour. Those abilities, coupled with his winning history at this tournament, make Morikawa undervalued for 2024 PGA Championship bets, according to the model. See who else to pick here.
