LIV Golf Odds: Opening Portland Field, Limited Betting Options

The first event on U.S. soil for the controversial Saudi government-backed golf tour will take place outside Portland, Oregon this week, with a field that includes more big names that have left the PGA TOUR. As the North American standard for golf continues its tour with no big names in John Deere Classic odds, it’s no surprise LIV chose this slot in the calendar.

LIV golf odds are headlined by former Masters champion Dustin Johnson, but he’s joined by more defectors than what we saw in London, notably Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Abraham Ancer.

LIV GOLF ODDS – Portland

This tournament will be played at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club near Portland, another slap in the face to the PGA TOUR, as this course had hosted the regular season finale on the Korn Ferry Tour from 2014-2021 where PGA TOUR cards would be awarded.

The event that will look different than the PGA TOUR – with only three rounds of play and shotgun starts in which the entire field tees off at the same time at different holes around the course. Yardage is unclear, as the tournament will feature holes from both the Witch Hollow and Ghost Creek courses. Both are less than 7,100-yard courses, with Ghost Creek less than 6,900 yards.

Human Rights Concerns Escalate Around LIV Golf

The mayor of North Plains, where Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club is located, as well as officials from surrounding cities, have written the club’s owner, Escalante Golf, with concerns. Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden is speaking out against the tournament, and some members of the club are also reportedly uncomfortable with the situation.

In addition to human rights concerns within Saudi Arabia that have made international headlines, the Associated Press reports there is a local angle in Oregon over the hit-and-run death of a 15-year-old that has upset residents.

In 2016, Saudi student Abdulrahman Sameer Noorah was facing a trial on first-degree murder charges when he removed a tracking device and vanished. U.S. authorities believe the Saudi government helped arrange for a fake passport and provided a private jet for travel back to Saudi Arabia.

“It’s wrong to be silent when Saudi Arabia tries to cleanse blood-stained hands, in the fight for Oregonians to get justice — Fallon Smart was killed very close to our house in Southeast Portland, and the person charged with the crime, a hit-and-run death, was, based on all the evidence, whisked out of the country by the Saudis before he stood for trial,” Wyden said in an interview with The Associated Press.

What States Let You Bet On Liv Golf

Heading into the first even in London, it was difficult to find LIV golf odds in legal betting markets.

FanDuel was only approved in three states for LIV golf betting. So, the nation’s largest operator opted not to post odds at all ahead of the London event. BetMGM was approved in more states, but it also did not offer odds to bettors.

DraftKings had only received the green light in Illinois, Oregon, Ontario, Connecticut, Arizona, and Wyoming.

BetRivers only had LIV golf London betting in Connecticut and Ontario for both traditional golf markets and winner of the four-man team format.
