The 2018 Hero World Challenge PGA Tour will be in play from the 29th of November through until the 2nd of December this year, and as usual it is being held over at the stunning Albany Golf Club, and with a prize purse of some $3.5million it is one of the important tours of the PGA.
Betting sites have all opened up their ante post and futures betting markets on that event, and as such if you do fancy betting on it, then you have plenty of betting markets to pick and choose from.
However, today I will rattle through the set of odds that BetFred are offering, for they do have some slightly better odds attached to some golfers, and are also paying out to four places at one fifth the odds when you back any golfer each-way too.
The current favourite to win the Hero World Challenge this year is Justin Rose and if you get a move on your are going to be able to secure odds on him winning over at the BetFred betting site at odds of 15/2, and those odds are some of the highest ones I have seen being offered on Rose to win this event.
Other Favourites to Win the Hero World Challenge
You would not, by any stretch of the imagination call Justin Rose the red hot favourite to win this event, and as such there are plenty of other golfers that will fancy their chances of beating him and taking home the trophy.
Take for example Dustin Johnson, he looks a very fair bet currently at odds of 8/1, and the same could also be said for both Rickie Fowler and the host of the event, that being Tiger Woods, you should have no difficulties being able to secure odds on either of them of 9/1 right now.
Other Golfers in With a Chance of Winning
With those rather generous each-way terms on this PGA Tour, you may be tempted to back one or more golfer’s each-way, for with some luck in playing you could place a few bets and each of them pay off.
As of who you should be backing, well that is your decision to make of course, however never underestimate the chance of golfers such as Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas at 10/1 and at 12/1 Jon Rahm must surely be worth a speculative punt too.
There are a couple of 14/1 shots that did catch my eye today and they are Tony Finau and Jason Day but you are going to be taking some chances if you opt for any of the other golfers in this PGA Tour, and they include the likes of Xander Schauffele at 16/1 and the three 20/1 shots those being Patrick Cantlay, Gary Woodland and Patrick Reed.
The rest of the field are available at odds of at least 22/1, and you can back Henrik Stenson along with Hideki Matsuyama at those odds or back the likes of Bubba Watson at 25/1, Alex Noren at 30/1 and the total rank outsider to win the Hero World Challenge this year is Keegan Bradley at 40/1!
