PGA Tour Golf Betting Odds: If you're looking for the best advice for PGA betting, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook, we're previewing the Humana Challenge, which will be held from Thursday, January 16th through Sunday, January 19th, 2014, at PGA West in La Quinta, California, featuring Phil Mickelson, Brian Gay, Brandt Snedeker and Charles Howell III.
Brian Gay will look to defend his championship at the Humana Challenge when it is held from January 16th through 19th, 2014, at PGA West in La Quinta, California. Gay captured a playoff last season. The field is usually impressive, as Phil Mickelson has won here twice and other top players are in the field yearly in PGA betting.
Brian Gay shot a 25-under in the 2013 event to tie with David Lingmerth and Charles Howell III atop the leaderboard. Lingmerth was eliminated on the first playoff hole and Gay birdied the second to outlast Howell. The course record was set by Joe Durant in 2001 when he shot a 36-under 324. The scores have traditionally been very low so it will take a nice collection of birdies and eagles for a golfer to be in contention.
Phil Mickelson has won here in 2002 and 2004, one of six golfers to win the Humana Challenge two times. Arnold Palmer is the only golfer to win it more than twice, holding the record with five career victories at the tournament. Mark Wilson was the 2012 winner, while Jhonnatan Vegas (2011), Bill Haas (2010), Pat Perez (2009), D.J. Trahan (2008) and Charley Hoffman (2007) are some of the other recent champions in PGA betting.

How to bet on Humana Challenge
The odds of a golfer to win the Humana Challenge will generally look something like:
- Tiger Woods + 150
- Phil Mickelson + 250
- Steve Stricker + 300
- Jeff Overton + 700
- Ernie Els + 700
- Field + 600
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a golfer to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $150 that Tiger Woods will win the Humana Challenge, while the bettor wagering on Jeff Overton stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in PGA golf is head-to-head finish between two players. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the golfer finishes in, as long as the golfer wagered on finishes higher than the other golfer.
A head-to-head betting line for the Humana Challenge will look something like:
- Tiger Woods - 190 Steve Stricker + 150
In this bet, players wagering on Woods to finish higher than Stricker will be asked to risk $19 to win $10, while bettors believing that Stricker will finish higher than Woods will bet $10 to win $15.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to PGA golf wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of PGA golf betting without to much trouble.
