The 2018 Players Championship begins on Thursday at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. While it may not be a major yet, the $11 million prize pool—second to only the U.S. Open this year—coupled with the uniqueness of the course draws a prestigious field that is as competitive as any on the PGA Tour.
That will be no different this year, which is why oddsmakers have been struggling to find a consistent place for the elite contenders at the top of the odds list. The sportsbooks haven’t been able to settle on one surefire favorite for the tournament in the days leading up to the start of the Players.
Dustin Johnson is the current odds-on favorite with a betting line of +1250 (12.5-1), but Rory McIlroy (+1300) is only a shade back from that. Jordan Spieth isn’t too far behind either, tying with Justin Thomas for the third-best odds at +1400. Jason Day (+1500) and Rickie Fowler (+2000), who finished second at the Masters in early April, round out the top-five.
It wouldn’t be surprising in the slightest to see these odds shuffle some more before the tourney tees off Thursday morning. With that in mind, here’s a look at the full list of odds for the 2018 Players Championship (as of 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday, May 9):
The onus is on Johnson to play well to keep his position in the OWGR because after this week, his divisor (the number of events your total points earned over the previous two years is divided by) will go up. He will also be losing the remaining points from his 2016 U.S. Open win next month.
