PGA TOUR golf bets continue during the 2023 FedExCup Fall series. The Butterfield Bermuda Championship begins Thursday in Southampton, Bermuda. Adam Scott, Thomas Detry, and Brendon Todd are the favorites this week, as John Haslbauer provides his favorite Butterfield Bermuda Championship picks among all the golf odds offered this week. Below, you’ll find the best sports betting odds available on each player.

The PGA TOUR’s penultimate event is just about upon us in what’s been a very long wraparound season. East of the East Coast, the 2023 Butterfield Bermuda Championship in Southampton, Bermuda, is next on tap starting this Thursday.

In its fifth year on the PGA TOUR schedule, this event continues to struggle to attract household names; however, it still presents plenty of opportunity to exploit value on the betting board. From its first four years, this event has proven to favor players with experience on windy, coastal courses but has not given a distinct advantage to bombers or fairway-finders in particular. Ahead, we’ll breeze through all the bets I’ve placed for the 2023 Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

Adam Scott

My Bet: +1800
Best Available Odds:

Adam Scott is significantly more talented and accomplished than any other golfer in the field this week. The odds, however, don’t exactly reflect that, as he sits as a co-favorite amongst the likes of Brendon Todd and Thomas Detry.

Now, I’d feel a lot better about his chances if he wasn’t spending his tournament week on a Boston Common press tour to promote his new TGL venture. But Port Royal GC is not a course that requires much strategy to navigate, so it’s still all systems go for the Australian. He enters top-2 in terms of Comp Course History, SG: P, Birdies or Better Gained, and SG: TOT (High Winds).

Taylor Pendrith

My Bet: +2500
Best Available Odds:

A barrage of awful Sunday weather spoiled Pendrith’s bid for his first career PGA TOUR victory at this event two years ago, so I expect him to come motivated to seal the deal in his first return since the T5 finish in 2021. There are very few players in this field who enter in good form, but Pendrith highlights that short list with finishes of T15 and T3 in his last two starts. Despite his profile as a bomber, Pendrith has had plenty of success on short courses in his career, so his combination of recent form, course fit, and course history leaves plenty of room for encouragement.

Vincent Whaley

My Bet: +6000
Best Available Odds:

Whaley has taken advantage of his opportunities in the new FedEx Cup Fall series by splitting time between the Korn Ferry and PGA TOUR this season. Whaley has made it through the cut in all four starts this Fall, including three top-30 finishes. A T7 finish here, while in far worse form in 2021, leads me to believe his current momentum won’t halt in Bermuda.

Kramer Hickok

My Bet: +8000
Best Available Odds:

Hickok is another value bet on a player who falls on a very short list of players with consistent course history and recent form. He ranks No. 12 in the field in total strokes gained at Port Royal with finishes of T15, T8, and T30 over his first three appearances. Like past winners Brendon Todd and Brian Gay, Driving Accuracy is the strength of Hickok’s game. He’ll head to Bermuda in great form following up a T15 showing at last week’s World Wide Technology Championship.

Cameron Percy

My Bet: +17500
Best Available Odds:

Deep longshots will be viable in an accessible, weather-impacted event such as this, so I have no concerns digging deep down the board for Percy at 175-1. The first-round leader in Mexico last week, it’s clear he still has plenty left in the tank to combat a coastal resort course. That is where Percy has always done his best work, too, as he ranks top-25 in comp course history with four top-15 finishes over the last two seasons on comparable resort courses.


Austin Smotherman

My Bet: +6600
Best Available Odds:

The first-round leader at last year’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship, Smotherman has proven that he can go low on a short and easy Bermuda-based layout. He remains in solid form leading into this week, coming off of back-to-back top-35 finishes.

Justin Lower

My Bet: +7000
Best Available Odds:

A legend in the Monday Qualifying world, Lower knows how to go low. With finishes of T17 and T8 over his first two trips to the Bermuda Championship, this seems to be a course that suits his eye well.

Adam Long

My Bet: +7500
Best Available Odds:

Long should feel confident leaving Cabo, successfully hitting every fairway in regulation over his four days at the World Wide Technology Championship. If that continues, he’ll be in a great position to generate ample birdie looks on Thursday as he looks to build on a streak of three consecutive top-35 finishes in the Fall.

Kramer Hickok

My Bet: +8000
Best Available Odds:

I’m a little higher on Hickok than the market is, so I’ll happily double down on the outright bet with a bit of first-round leader exposure as well at these odds. Hickok’s course history is encouraging, and he’ll head into Thursday with significant momentum after a solid showing in Mexico.

Peter Malnati

My Bet: +8000
Best Available Odds:

I’m not as interested in Malnati for the full tournament, but this is a gut play on a player who just seems to pop on short and easy resort courses. He’s only four starts removed from a T11 showing at the Fortinet Championship.


Top-20 Finish: Kramer Hickok

My Bet: +300
Best Available Odds:

How much Kramer Hickok is too much Kramer Hickok? We’re about to find out, but you won’t find a better combination of recent form and course fit relative to the other players around him in this market.

Top-20 Finish: Cameron Percy

My Bet: +475
Best Available Odds:

Top-25 in Comp Course History and three rounds of golf removed from a 62 in Mexico are enough signs of encouragement for me to back Percy at longer placement odds. Australians have a nice track record at Port Royal, as Lucas Herbert has demonstrated – and Percy has leaned on his skillset of flighted approach shots in the wind to find his best results on coastal courses.

Top-20 Finish: Brian Gay

My Bet: +650
Best Available Odds:

Some books have given the Mayor of Bermuda more respect than others, but I see plenty of value on this number for the course history alone. A past winner of this event, Gay has finished no worse than T12 over his first four trips to Bermuda. Poor recent form hasn’t stopped him before, either, so I’ll take the risk at such long odds.


That’ll do it for this week’s PGA TOUR golf bets. Best of luck this week with your own Bermuda Championship bets, and see you next Monday for the RSM Classic preview! For more, follow TheLines on Twitter.
