PGA Tour Odds

The duo are currently sitting at -15, two strokes ahead Chez Reavie on -13, who is two shots clear of Eric Cole who is back on -11. Rory McIlroy headed into the tournament as one of the field’s highest ranked players and the Northern Irishman finds himself seven strokes back on -8.

McCarthy hoping to atone for Memorial near miss

The Travelers Championship is one of the most iconic tournaments on the PGA Tour and this year’s tournament remains in the balance.

After 36 holes it is the American duo of Denny McCarthy and Keegan Bradley who lead the way, but the tournament is far from over with nineteen players currently within seven strokes of the lead. 

Denny McCarthy is one of the form players currently on the PGA Tour and the American is hoping to land his first PGA title this weekend.

He came desperately close a few weeks ago at the Memorial, losing in a playoff to Viktor Hovland, but it’s clear that the American has put that disappointment behind him and brought good form into this week.

An opening round of 60, saw him lead the tournament after the first round and a solid second round showing of 65 saw him head into the weekend still holding a share of the lead. 

McCarthy is joined at the top of the leaderboard by former PGA Champion Keegan Bradley. Bradley has dropped just one shot through his first 36 holes and has lit up the course with rounds of 62 and 63.

The winner of the 2022 Zozo Championship, Bradley looks ideally placed to land his sixth PGA Tour title.

Chez Reavie is a former winner of this tournament and the diminutive American has left himself well placed for winning the tournament a second time. Two rounds of 64 and 63 have contained just one dropped shot, and he will be hopeful of overturning the two stroke deficit that he currently faces. 

Despite the impressive score that both McCarthy and Bradley have posted there are a host of big names that will be hoping to find themselves in contention by the end of the day. 

Viktor Hovland, Xander Schauffele and Rory McIlroy all find themselves on -8, seven strokes off the lead and will be hoping for a productive day that will see their gap to the top greatly reduced. 

Travelers Championship Round 3 betting preview 

Heading into the weekend in great form following his second place finish at the Memorial, it’s Denny McCarthy who finds himself as the current favorite for this year’s Travelers Championship. 

McCarthy currently finds himself at a career high ranking of 33 and has posted three top ten finishes this season. A great putter, he has been making hay on the greens, picking up sixteen shots through his first 36 holes. Hoping to put the learnings of his near miss at the Memorial into good practice today, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the American post another competitive score. 

Keegan Bradley has enjoyed a great twelve months and finds himself ideally placed to win his sixth PGA title. A brilliant second round 63 saw him climb to the top of the leaderboard and he will be hopeful of building upon that today. A winner of the 2022 Zozo Championship, Bradley knows what it takes to win on Tour and will be hopeful of another positive day.

Chez Reavie rounds out the top three in the betting and the American will be hopeful of winning this tournament for the second time. 

Currently ranked 108 in the world, it’s been a frustrating season for the American who has missed a string of cuts this year. Having posted just one top ten finish in 2023, he will be looking to kickstart his season with a positive weekend.

Lurking down the field seven and eight strokes off the lead respectively are the duo of Rory McIlroy and Scottie Scheffler. Both have plenty of work to do if they are to put themselves into contention but both have proved on numerous occasions that they are more than capable of shooting an incredibly low score. 

With both priced at +2000, they have to be the undoubted value plays of today.
