PGA golf action for this week will start on Thursday with the 2011 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am from the Golf Links in California. The Pebble Beach Pro-Am will tee off on February 10th and will run through the 13th with a total purse of $6,300,000 USD and will be offering 500 FedExCup points. Dustin Johnson is the defending champion and the online bookmakers choice in Pebble Beach odds to win. Sportsbooks have listed Johnson +600 as the PGA golf betting favorite followed by Phil Mickelson +700, Nick Watney +1300 and Tim Clark +1500.
Geof Ogilvy +1750 and Jim Furyk +1900 have opened as longshots in Pebble Beach odds to win along with Hunter Mahan and JB Holmes who are listed at +2350 for the event that can be seen live on the Golf Channel and CBS or Sirius-XM satellite radio. Johnson heads into the 2011 AT&T Pebble Beach as the PGA golf betting favorite as the two-time champion and will tee-off at 10:01am EST but will not be the only one fans are flocking around. The 2011 Pebble Beach Pro-Am will be featuring star studded line-up including movie stars Bill Murray, and Kevin Costner not to mention sports legends like Bill Belichick, Drew Brees and Oscar de la Hoya just to name a few.
If you ask any PGA golf betting handicapper which player besides the favorites has the best chance in odds to win at Pebble Beach, most would say Vijay Singh. Last season wasn’t the best for Singh finishing 65th overall in the FedExCup standings but has always seemed to find the top of the leaderboard at Pebble Beach. In the past five years, Singh has landed in the top 11 at Pebble Beach for the last three out of five events and is coming off a third place showing at the Waste Management Phoenix Open last week. If you’re looking for the player with the best golf betting value, the Singh would be the man at +3000 in odds to win at Pebble Beach.
