Betting on Who Wins the Travelers Championship in 2020

| June 22, 2020 12:21 pm PDT
2020 Travelers Championship

A lackluster week hasn’t deterred the oddsmakers from installing Rory McIlroy as the betting favorite, although now he’s got some company. The Travelers Championship odds are about as bunched up as Sunday’s leaderboard in Hilton Head, and all signs are pointing toward another thrilling week of golf.

Considering the top-7 players in the world are here (and so are the top-10 in the FedEx Cup points standings), it’d be naïve to expect anything else.

TPC River Highlands is under 6,900 yards long, and it’ll be warm in Cromwell, CT, so get ready to see a boatload of birdies.

2020 Travelers Championship Odds to Win

After Bryson DeChambeau produced back-to-back stellar finishes since debuting his bulked-up frame, the best golf betting sites finally gave in. DeChambeau cruised to a top-10 finish at Harbour Town despite not being able to unleash “Kraken” on the tree-lined golf course, but expect a lot more BOMBS out of the Mad Scientist in Connecticut.

Justin Thomas made the cut on the number before shooting 66-63 on the weekend, proving there aren’t many scenarios of JT not contending when he shows up at a golf tournament.

DeChambeau and Thomas are joined by McIlroy at the top, and before you jump all over Rory for his “off-week” at the RBC Heritage, is shooting 11-under-par all that bad?

There’s a bunch of value toward the middle portion of the sheet, including names that I’ll be hitting on when I unveil sleepers and value plays for the week. However, the goal here is to narrow it down and try and pinpoint the winner.

What Happened at the 2019 Travelers Championship?

Chez Reavie ended an 11-year winless drought, notching his second career victory on the PGA Tour. The Arizona State grad entered Sunday’s final round with a six-shot cushion yet found himself leading Keegan Bradley by just one as he stood on the 17th tee.

Nevertheless, it was the fidgety former PGA Championship winner who let his nerves get the best of him. 

Chez made birdie as Keegan missed the green and three-putted for double, and next thing you know, Reavie was strolling up the 18th fairway, coasting to a four-shot win.

The 2019 Travelers Championship marked the second consecutive year 17-under-par was the winning score in Cromwell but the first time an individual won by more than three strokes since 1996.

Last year’s Winning Score: -17, 263

Last Year’s Cut Line: -2 (138)

My Pick to Win the Travelers Championship

With how many top players popped on the first page of last week’s leaderboard, it’d be easy to roll with a guy like Brooks Koepka or Justin Thomas. The way Abraham Ancer struck the ball was incredible, and as I referenced earlier, Bryson is going to be swinging for the fences and hitting flip wedges into a ton of holes.

With that being said, TPC River Highlands sets up perfectly for Collin Morikawa and his strengths.

The list of past winners in recent years (Chez Reavie, Jordan Spieth, Russell Knox, Kevin Streelman, Ken Duke) confirms this isn’t a bomber’s paradise, and worth noting, this will be Morikawa’s second crack at this venue after turning professional two weeks prior to last year’s edition (36th-place).

Collin needed a week to let some steam off after his disappointing playoff loss in Fort Worth, and my gut tells me he comes out guns blazing on Thursday.

Given the star-studded field and Morikawa’s 64th-place finish at the RBC, casual fans might be wary of pulling the trigger on the 23-year-old for their Travelers Championship pick.

Not me, though.
