Golf Betting Preview & Pick for 2018 Memorial Tournament

Posted by Derrick Harper on May 30, 2018 in

The 2018 Memorial Tournament will be played this weekend at the Jack Nicklaus designed Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin Ohio. This is just north of Columbus. The purse for the Memorial Tournament has been raised to more than $8M, which intrigues many of the top golfers in the world. Let’s take a look at the Golf betting odds with our 2018 Memorial Tournament PGA Betting Preview.

Golf Betting Preview & Pick for 2018 Memorial Tournament

Justin Thomas +1200

Currently, the top-ranked player in all of the world. Justin Thomas always has the dramatic in him, and always seems to play well on the big stage. Justin Thomas finished 11th in his last event, but never shows signs of struggle for long. Look for Thomas to continue playing well and be a huge contender at this event.

Dustin Johnson +1400

While Justin Thomas is currently the top player in the world, it’s hard to argue against Dustin Johnson. Johnson can really smoke the golf ball. He is going to have to start knocking down putts to be able to take down this title. Look for Johnson to be right in the mix as the event goes on.

Jason Day +1400

Jason Day loves this course. Day is also a very good golfer, and like all the Top 6 guys always puts himself in a spot to win. Day is going to have to cut the bad holes here and there if he wants to take down the crown. But, Jason Day is in a great spot, and his betting odds are very favorable.

Justin Rose +1400

Justin Rose is kind of the guy that many forget about when it comes to picking a champion. All this guy does is compete, and compete at a high level. Look for Rose to be in the mix, as this seems like a tournament with big dogs fighting it out.

Rory McIlroy +1400

Rory continues to be a guy that many are watching to see when he will catch fire. It’s coming. This is a guy that can do about everything on the golf course. Some are concerned with how his game will fit at the course in Ohio, but Rory always is a guy that can win a four-day tournament.

Jordan Spieth +1600

We love Jordan Spieth. But, Jordan Speith is not playing really good golf right now. The thing about Spieth is – he can shake that quickly, and Muirfield may be the place he can do so. If he is going to shake his struggles, he will have to do so with the putter.

Jordan Spieth is one of the Golf Betting favorites to win the 2018 Memorial Tournament.

As you can see, many of the best players on PGA are going to be in action this weekend. There are other guys after the Top 6 that will be able to put themselves in a great spot to win this as well. A few others to consider include:

  • Rickie Fowler +2000
  • Bubba Watson +3300
  • Patrick Reed +3300
  • Matt Kuchar +4500
  • Adam Scott +5000

After much debate and discussion, we are going to take Jason Day to win the 2018 Memorial Tournament. He has been there and done that before on this stage, and he loves this course. He nearly calls this course his home. We are looking forward to seeing Jason Day as healthy as he has been for awhile to compete and compete at a high level. Look for a great weekend from Day. Betting him at +1400 is our top choice for the weekend.
