Former Champ Headlines Honda Classic Betting Odds
The PGA Tour Heads to National in Florida
Honda Classic betting odds have been released, and although it might not feature the biggest names in the game, it presents an opportunity for bettors to secure value odds for every player.
The headliner of the event is Sungjae Im, who is the only player paying less than +1400. The field is wide open, including the likes of Billy Horschel and Danny Willett, who eye an upset result.
Im Shooting for Two
Im won the Honda Classic in 2022 when he defeated Mackenzie Hughes by one stroke, so he’s looking to add another title to his record.
The 24-year-old South Korean has since added the Shriners Children’s Hospital Open to his record, which proves his mettle as a contender for this year’s tournament. Although he finished T56 at the Genesis Invitational last week, he had a T6 finish at the Phoenix Open the week prior, so he’s playing well and deserves to be favored to win with Honda Classic betting odds.
Im is the favorite to win the Honda Classic at +800 with PGA Tour odds, so the sportsbook expects him to perform well, especially given his past success at the event.
Time for Horschel to Shine
Billy Horschel, a seven-time PGA Tour winner, is another golfer worth considering with Honda Classic betting odds.
He has been vocal about the LIV Tour, but he has yet to deliver on the PGA Tour since making his opinion known. Nonetheless, Horschel won the 2022 Memorial, which shows that he has what it takes to win big events.
He is keen to win a tournament in his home state of Florida and has expressed his desire to win the Honda Classic by committing to it early.
“There’s a lot of goals I haven’t checked off and I’ve always wanted to win in the state of Florida, obviously more than once, but before my career is over,” Horschel said. “I would love to win and hope it is the Honda Classic this year that gets me that first one.
“It requires a player who is on top of their game. You can’t fake it around PGA National. I’ve always enjoyed playing that golf course. It requires a little bit extra than other PGA Tour courses that we play.”
Willett Has Upset Potential
Danny Willett is a former Masters champion who is overdue for a winning performance.
The 35-year-old Brit finished T18 at Riviera in his last outing, which should give him the confidence needed to perform well at the Honda Classic.
Although he choked at an event last year, he is still a formidable player who can compete against a field without the superstars. Injuries have hampered his performance, but he remains a player of high caliber, having won the DP World Tour Championship, BMW PGA Championship, and Alfred Dunhill Championship since his Masters win in 2016.
Willett is currently paying +7000 to win with Honda Classic betting odds and his odds are worth considering with golf betting lines.
Hubba Hubba Hubbard
All eyes are on Mark Hubbard, who is a 33-year-old golfer who could score at attractive odds.
He finished T51 at the PGA Championship and has come close to winning on multiple occasions. He finished T5 at the Sanderson Farms Championship last year and followed it up with a T21 finish at the Fortinet Championship.
In the year prior, he finished third at the Barbasol Championship and fourth at the Barracuda Championship, demonstrating his potential to beat fields of high quality.
Bettors can find value in Hubbard’s odds, which are currently at +12,500 for the Honda Classic and he could pay off loyal supporters.
We have backed him over the years and his odds make him worth following for a few more tournaments at least.
