PGA TOUR Golf Bets: PGA Championship Head to Head Picks and Parlay

PGA TOUR Golf Bets: PGA Championship Head to Head Picks and Parlay

We're throwing down a PGA meets LIV matchups parlay as we gear up for Golf's second major of the year, the PGA Championship.

Betting on winners and who will finish in the Top 5, 10 and 20 markets gets all the attention around golf tournaments, but betting on head-to-head matchups can be an equally lucrative and entertaining experience for golf bettors. For our model's best picks in those markets, check out our full PGA Championship Predictions, now exclusively part of Dimers Pro.

We have an in-house tool designed for pitting golfers against one another and simulating the results. We can see who will finish higher in their head-to-head matchup, either after Round 1 or over the course of the entire tournament.

With a handy "Fair Odds" to "Percentages" toggle, you can always check to see if there's value in any given matchup.

PGA Championship 2024 Golf Betting Preview

Our best bets are here to help with outright winner plays, as well as recommended Top-5, Top-10 and Top-20 picks. We're heading to Valhalla GC in Lousiville, Kentucky for the PGA Championship and a $17.5M purse on the line.

Make sure you visit Dimers all golf season long, where we'll be feeding you our trusted PGA best betson a weekly basis.

These PGA predictions are sourced from our powerful predictive analytics model that has returned an 80-1 winner with Wyndham Clark at Pebble Beach in 2024, cashed our +627 parlay at The Masters, and called a Scottie Scheffler comeback win at +1000.

+889 Head-to-Head PGA Championship Parlay on DraftKings

We've cashed a couple of these in the past few weeks and we're looking to do it again.

With the LIV crew in town, we were hoping to have some fun using matchups with a PGA golfer vs. a LIV golfer but those matchups aren't ideal so we're just looking at our best picks. 

To make this parlay, we'll be using the Head-to-Head matchups available at DraftKings as they have our preferred options available. We'll enter both golfers into our H2H Predictor, select the Tournament-long option, and see which golfer gets the advantage for the weekend.

Scottie Scheffler to beat Rory McIlroy65.6%-165
Brooks Koepka to beat Bryson DeChambeau57.4%-120
Viktor Hovland to beat Cameron Young
Sam Burns to beat Tony Finau55.6%-120

Leg 1: Scottie Scheffler to beat Rory McIlroy (-165)

It makes sense to anchor our favorite to win against his opponent, particularly when we're not as high on his counterpart as the books. Rory gets the second-shortest odds to win at +750, but we have him third and well behind Scottie in probability.

Here, our 65.6% matchup win probability would make fair odds for Scheffler -191, showing clear value even as a heavier favorite here. Rory should be +231 per our model while he sits at +130, way overpriced.

Leg 2: Brooks Koepka to beat Bryson DeChambeau (-120)

Next up, we've got mortal enemies and LIV defectors Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau head-to-head. This little rivalry is always fun, especially when it brings that grit to the usually pristine PGA TOUR. 

Koepka is a three-time and defending champ of the PGA Championship and there's no reason to expect him to turn in anything other than a competitive performance this time around. He gets our fourth-highest probability to win with a 4.1% probability, more than double that of DeChambeau. He gets a 14.3% better chance to finish in the Top 20 and his fair odds would be -135 at his 57.4% probability, giving us a small edge here.

Leg 3: Viktor Hovland to beat Cameron Young (-120)

Our third leg is on Viktor Hovland to best his opponent Cameron Young. Hovland is one of golf's most promising young talents with six wins at just 26 years old, though he's struggled a bit through his seven eventts this year, with his best finishes at T19, T22 and T24. Thougn Young has never won a PGA event, he's flirted with victory this year, finishing as high as 2nd, T4, T8 and T9.

Our fair price for Hovland would be -133 so there's an edge in him here and our model gives him a substantial 14.1% better probability to net a Top 20 finish.

Leg 4: Sam Burns to beat Tony Finau (-120)

Our final leg is technically our closest matchup, but we still get a 60.9% chance of a tie or win and a slim edge with our fair odds at -125. Sam Burns went on a little heater earlier this year ripping off finishes of T6, 10th, T3 and T10 in a row. Finau has just a pair of finishes inside the Top 10 in 12 events this year.

Form a holistic perspective, 27-year old Sam Burns has one win (5) fewer than Finau who has a decade of PGA Tour experience on Burns. He's a better golfer these days and DimersBOT likes him to edge out Finau over the weekend.


Dimers' Expert Golf Picks and Predictions

As well as being your best source for PGA golf predictions, Dimers also has the latest golf news, golf predictions for every game, weekly golf rankings, and golf matchup H2H tool.

Can I bet on golf with Dimers?

No. There’s no golf bet slip on our site because we don’t take any golf bets ourselves. We’re the friend who gives you the best golf picks and predictions then tells you where and how to get the best golf sign up offers at the sportsbooks, so you can throw your golf bets down. That’s it!

When you click on one of our buttons or links in our golf content, you’re whisked away to DraftKings, BetMGM, FanDuel, or one of the many other sportsbooks we work with.

Once you get there, you can join up to score a welcome bonus (up to $200!), and then get those golf bets down for yourself, but you’re betting on the golf with them, not us. Since you are never betting anything directly with us, we don’t have access to your personal information or sensitive financial info like credit card numbers.

It also means that despite our best efforts to confirm that a sports betting site still has that awesome golf sign up offer available, the best ones often disappear just as quickly as they appeared. We always take these offers down once we know they’re no longer available. We take our responsibility to provide up to date golf information very seriously.

Finally, Responsible Gambling is extremely important to us, so please remember that golf betting should be seen as a form of entertainment - adding to your enjoyment while watching from the course of the couch - not a side hustle or second income stream.
