After missing a third straight cut, something he’d never done before in his career, Brooks Koepka is seemingly untouchable right now for golf bettors. However, it will be tough to not at least consider kicking the Koepka tires when you see his odds to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Koepka, whose first career PGA Tour victory came at TPC Scottsdale in 2015, has opened at 50-1 on the FanDuel Sportsbook to win the WMPO. Those odds are clearly reflective of his recent slump, but it’s still shocking given he’s a four-time major winner in the prime of his career. If he can somehow figure it out on Thursday and Friday, it would not be surprising to see him become the live favorite.
Of course, there are some marquee names in the field this week who are playing excellent golf right now, which will give any prospective Koepka bettors pause. Jon Rahm, who tied for seventh at Torrey Pines, is the solo favorite for a second straight week (6 1/2-1), with Justin Thomas checking in close behind at 9-1. Xander Schauffele and Rory McIlroy, both coming off a strong week at the Farmers, are 11-1.
Below are the complete odds for the 2021 Waste Management Phoenix Open field (odds courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook, as of Monday afternoon):
Jon Rahm 6 ½-1 (bet $10 to win $65)
