2024 PGA Championship odds, picks, field, predictions: Golf insider high on Brooks Koepka at Valhalla

Sixteen former PGA Championship winners will be in the 2024 PGA Championship field. Only two, however, have won the Wanamaker Trophy at Valhalla Golf Club, where this year’s event will be held beginning on Thursday. Rory McIlroy won it in 2014, while Tiger Woods prevailed in a playoff in 2000. They find themselves on opposite ends of the 2024 PGA Championship odds. McIlroy is the second favorite at 6-1, while Woods is a longshot at 125-1 among the PGA Championship 2024 golfers.

The 2024 PGA Championship favorite is Scottie Scheffler, who has dominated golf in recent years, but has yet to win any major other than the Masters. Before locking in any 2024 PGA Championship picks, make sure you see the PGA Tour predictions and best bets from golf betting and fantasy expert Sia Nejad.

Nejad specializes in betting and DFS in golf, among other sports. He’s had success in the outright and first-round leader markets and in betting head-to-head matchups. He also has been solid with his head-to-head matchups since last year’s Charles Schwab Challenge, going 43-28-3 and returning 11.24 units over that span. That’s a $1,124 profit for $100 bettors since May 2023.

Nejad also nailed Clark, a 75-1 longshot, as the outright winner at the Wells Fargo Championship. In 2023, SportsLine debuted “The Early Wedge,” and in the first three months of the show, he hit two first-round leaders and three outright winners.

Now, Nejad has focused his attention on the 2024 PGA Championship field and has locked in his best bets, top sleepers and favorites to avoid. See who they are at SportsLine.

Top 2024 PGA Championship expert picks

One surprise: Nejad is completely fading Xander Schauffele, even though he’s fourth in the 2024 PGA Championship odds. Schauffele is considered one of the best active golfers who has still not won a major title, with his best finishes being T2 at the 2018 Open Championship and T2 at the 2019 Masters. This has been one of his worst majors though, as he has never finished better than T10 in seven attempts.

Schauffele missed the cut in 2021, finished T13 in 2022 and T18 last year. He ranks outside the top 30 on the PGA Tour in driving distance, driving accuracy and proximity, which will put him at a disadvantage against some of the golfers in this field. Nejad knows Schauffele has the tools to contend, but his poor history at the end of majors makes him a golfer to avoid this week.

Instead, Nejad is high on the chances of Brooks Koepka, even though he’s a double-digit longshot at 10-1. He has been one of the most dominant players in history in this event, winning it three times already. A fourth would put him in elite company since Woods, Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus are the only other golfers to accomplish that feat.

The 34-year-old Koepka comes to Valhalla playing well. He won his last event in Singapore and recorded a top-10 finish in Australia in the prior event. Overall, he bas shot five straight rounds of 68 or lower. Nejad told SportsLine that Koepka has “gone into a full reset mode” after finishing outside the top 40 at Augusta, so he’s backing him in his 2024 PGA Championship best bets.

How to make 2024 PGA Championship picks

Nejad has locked in his early best bets for the 2024 PGA Championship and is backing a longshot who is priced at more than 30-1. Nejad likes this player’s “skill set at the PGA Championship when the number is this long.” You can see Nejad’s PGA Tour picks only at SportsLine.
