2012 The Players Championship Odds & Predictions

The Players Championship starts this Thursday (May 10th 2012) at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponta Vedra, Florida. Last year KJ Choi was victorious in The Players Championship as a +3500 underdog at the betting window. Choi started 2012 with a T5, but Choi hasn’t been in contentions in any other tournaments this year.

Right now Choi is a +10000 underdog to win The Players Championship 2012. I can’t see Choi repeating this year and I won’t bet on him, but some of you may want to throw a small bet down on him to cover your other predictions. I’ve posted some odds below for The Players Championship 2012, but you can view the latest golfing odds at Ladbrokes Mobile.

What are the Latest Odds for The Players Championship?

(Top 10)

• Rory Mcilroy +1000
• Luke Donald +1400
• Lee Westwood +1400
• Phil Mickleson +2200
• Tiger Woods +2500
• Hunter Mahan +3000
• Jason Dufner +4000
• Sergio Garcia +4000
• Adam Scott +4000
• Steve Stricker +4000

Who Am I Picking to Win The Players Championship?

Rory Mcilroy is the favourite at +1000 right now heading into Thursday for the opening round. Mcilroy didn’t play in the tourney last year, but he has been playing excellent golf this year and is the world’s #1 golfer right now. Rory lost in a playoff hole against Rickie Fowler last weekend at the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship and he should be atop the leaderboard again this weekend.

One of my top picks this weekend is Luke Donald at +1400. Last time Luke played he finished 3rd in New Orleans and last year he had an excellent T4 finish with a -10 final score at The Players Championship. Luke likes this course and his putting should help him stay within the top of the leaderboard this weekend.

Lee Westwood, Phil Mickleson and Tiger Woods won’t be making it onto my betting card this weekend. I don’t think any of the three golfers will win The Players Championship this year. The odds for Tiger Woods are decent this week at +2500, but I simply don’t see Tiger pulling off the win. He has only won once since the big scandal and I don’t see that changing.

Hunter Mahan at +3000 and Jason Dufner at +4000 are interesting value bets in my opinion. Mahan and Dufner both finished T6 at The Players Championship last year with a final score of -9. Dufner just won the 2012 Zurich Classic in New Orleans and should be full of confidence heading into The Players Championship in a couple days.

Two other golfers that I think will play good this week at The Players Championship include Steve Stricker and Ernie Els. I don’t necessarily believe either of these two will end up winning, but I think both will be near the top of the leaderboard. You can bet on Stricker to finish Top 10 at +350 and Els to finish Top 10 at +500 right now. I also like McDowell to finish top 10 this weekend.

• Bet on Luke Donald +1400 to win
• Bet on Hunter Mahan +3000 to win
• Bet on Steve Stricker +350 to finish top 10
• Bet on Ernie Els +500 to finish top 10
• Bet on Graeme McDowell +600 to finish top 10
