USPGA Championship Golf Betting Tips: The Bettingpro Team Share Their Best Bets at Quail Hollow

Neil Roarty 10 Aug 2017
  • The USPGA Championship takes place at Quail Hollow from August 10 - 13

The golf tipsters each give a selection for this weekend's USPGA Championship at Quail Hollow to help to provide a shortlist for the final major of the 2017 season.

Another weekend and another excellent pick in a PGA event for Jon Wilde, who added 35/1 Paul Casey to his each-way winners this season. Neil Roarty's 11/1 on Rory McIlroy also paid out for those backing each-way and it was yet another profitable week for the Bettingpro golf team.

This weekend it the USPGA Championship, the final major of the 2017 calendar. Jon has given his full thoughts in his three from the tee, while the rest of 'Team Bettingpro' have made one selection apiece for Quail Hollow. And with so many firms paying enhanced odds on the event, there is plenty of scope for making some each-way profits.

Jon Wilde: Back Tony Finau @ 100/1 with 188BET (win only); 80/1 with Stan James 

Finau is a player I have been following closely this year in the belief that he is destined to reach the top, and was rewarded with an each-way payout when he was solo fifth at the Canadian Open a fortnight ago.

The 27-year-old from Salt Lake City has twice finished in the top 30 in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow, is playing consistently well this season and the next step for him is to contend in a Major – this could be the week.

Jonathan Davies: Back Jordan Spieth @10/1 with William Hill

History is at stake for the 23-year-old, who would become the youngest player to win all four majors should he go all the way in Charlotte.
Spieth may have been somewhat under the radar ahead of his triumph at the Open Championship last month, but the way he held himself together during those final few holes at Royal Birkdale was nothing short of exceptional.
The ability to produce his best golf under the most intense pressure was evident as he maintained that advantage over Matt Kuchar when it mattered the most and, as a result, it would be daft to bet against him at the fourth and final major of the year.

Gary Emmerson: Back Rickie Fowler - 18/1 @ William Hill

I really like Rory McIlroy's chances of winning a third US PGA Championship giving his record in the event and his record at Quail Hollow, but at the odds Rickie Fowler looks a more rewarding option. The American is a past winner at Quail Hollow having won the Wells Fargo Championship in 2012 (from McIlroy) and has gone close in the US PGA before when tied fourth behind McIlroy in 2014. Fowler is in good form, missing just three cuts all year - a period that has yielded a win in the Honda Classic, five top-5 finishes and a further two top-10 finishes. His major record this year reads T11, T5 and T22 and he might be a spot of value against McIlroy.

Leigh Copson: Back Paul Casey @ 40/1 Paddy Power 

Paul Casey arrives at Quail Hollow in consistent form having finished in the top 12 in seven of his last nine outings, with highlights being his sixth-placed finish at the Masters and fifth-placed finishes at the Travelers Championship and WGC-Bridgestone. The Englishman also finished 11th at the Open Championship, so he has been a regular feature on leaderboards in recent months.
Casey’s problem has been stringing together four good rounds, with costly dips in form denying him higher finishes, but he has been a good performer at US-based Majors in recent years – finishing in the top 10 of three of the last six – so he is certainly worthy of an each-way punt with the bookmakers that are offering extra places at Quail Hollow.

Neil Roarty: Back Rory McIlroy @8/1 with Betfred

It's another dull selection from me this week but I cannot see how Rory McIlroy finishes outside the top 10 this week and with some firms paying each-way to that then it's an absolute bet to nothing to take the Northern Irishman at 7 or 8/1. McIlroy played himself into form at The Open and followed up with a respectable fifth at the WGC Bridgestone last season. That shows that he's playing well enough to be considered a contender here but the fact that it is at Quail Hollow, where the 28-year-old has twice won the Wells Fargo Championship (and once finished second in a playoff) makes him a must bet. McIlroy holds the record score for four rounds around this course with a 21 under par 267 giving him the title in 2015. This is a great chance for the duel USPGA champion to make it a hat-trick at his favourite major and, at his favourite course, he has to be backed, even if the odds are a little on the slim side. The 8/1 available will put some people off but you're making a reasonable profit if he places (top 10 available on each-way bets with some firms) and a solid payout if he wins.
