Travelers Championship 2022 Betting Favorites

Media by Associated Press: Matthew Fitzpatrick, of England, reacts after a putt on the 13th hole during the final round of the U.S. Open golf tournament at The Country Club, Sunday, June 19, 2022, in Brookline, Mass.

Even though it’s a tournament after a major, with Matthew Fitzpatrick capturing the U.S. Open last week, the field for the Travelers Championship looks pretty star-studded with Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, and Justin Thomas as part of the field. 


Fans got a lot of extra golf at the 2021 Travelers, with Harris English outlasting Kramer Hickock in an eight-game playoff, the second-longest playoff in PGA Tour history. Spieth and Dustin Johnson have won this event over the past five years, so let’s see if some superstars can add their name to that list in 2022.


Rory McIlroy +1000


Rory McIlroy makes his fourth appearance at the Traveler’s in 2022, coming off a solid stretch that includes a win in the RBC Canadian Open and being in contention last weekend until finishing at T5. 


McIlroy has finished 17th, 12th, and 11th in his last three Traveler’s Championships, improving each time. He did not play last year after playing the U.S. Open the week before.


Scottie Scheffler +1000


Six of the world’s top 10 are in action this weekend, led by world #1 Scottie Scheffler. The Dallas native is coming off a second-place finish one stroke back at the U.S. Open, falling just short of his second major of the season following his Masters victory. 


Scheffler started off solid in this tournament last season with a 69-65 over the first 36 but faded out and ended up in T47, finishing at -3, 10 strokes off the pace. He has exploded this year, though, and should be considered for the win.


Justin Thomas +1200


A lot of models like Thomas to bounce back from fading over the weekend in the U.S. Open and finishing +7. Thomas finished third at the RBC Canadian Open and, like McIlroy, is playing for the third straight weekend.


Perhaps not being in contention at Brookline last week and thus playing without the pressure will have Thomas rejuvenated for the trip to TPC Rivers Highland.


Patrick Cantlay +1600


Oddsmakers have Cantlay at the fourth-highest odds this weekend as he comes in off a 14th place finish at the U.S. Open. Cantlay has been taking some down time lately, but the last tournament he played in consecutive weekends, he ended up winning the Zurich Classic on April 24th, shooting a 59 in the first round and never looking back.


Sam Burns +1800


Burns had a nice opportunity in the U.S. Open, paired up with McIlroy in the final round but struggling to a 27th place finish. That’s the opposite type of performance Burns had posted in his previous two tournaments, posting 67 or lower on Saturday and Sunday in his Charles Schwab Challenge win and a fourth-place finish at the RBC Canadian Open. 


Xander Schauffele +2000


There were a lot of rumors about Schauffele bolting to the LIV over the weekend at Brookline, but it doesn’t look like the 28-year-old is going to go anytime, anywhere soon.


What better way to quiet the gossip than with a second win of the season? He’s finished in the top 20 in five straight tournaments.
