The Memorial Tournament Odds Preview

The PGA’s best will head to Dublin, Ohio this week to challenge Muirfield Village Golf Club at the Memorial Tournament.

At the Bovada Sportsbook the favorite at Muirfield this week is Scottie Scheffler at +700. Scheffler is still ranked No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings after tying for third place last week at the Charles Schwab Challenge. That was his third straight top-five finish after he previously tied for fifth place in the AT&T Byron Nelson and tied for second place in the PGA Championship. In total, Scheffler has recorded seven top-five finishes this year including a pair of wins.

Following Scheffler on the odds list are then Jon Rahm at +750, Patrick Cantlay at +1100, and Xander Schauffele at +1400.

Rahm previously won the Memorial in 2020. He has three wins on tour already this season but will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing performance at the PGA Championship where he finished well back of the leaders in a tie for 50th place.

Cantlay seeking third win at tournament

Cantlay is a two-time Memorial champion with wins in 2019 and 2021. Cantlay has posted top-10 finishes in three of his last four events including turning in a ninth-place finish in the PGA Championship, tying for fourth in the Zurich Classic, and ending up third in the RBC Heritage.

Schauffele had recorded three consecutive top-five finishes before he snapped the streak at the PGA Championship by finishing tied for 18th place. He’s still looking for his first Tour win of the season with his best result coming in the Wells Fargo Championship where he finished second.

In last year’s Memorial Tournament Billy Horschel shot 13-under par to finish atop the leaderboard, four strokes up on second-place Aaron Wise. Horschel is a big +15000 underdog to repeat as champ this weekend, and that isn’t surprising considering he has missed the cut in four of his last eight events.

Last week on Tour Emiliano Grillo defeated Adam Schenk in a playoff to win the Charles Schwab Challenge. It was Grillo’s second career Tour win and his first since 2023. Grillo is a +15000 underdog to make it back-to-back wins in the Memorial this week.

Other former winners of the Memorial in the field this week include 2016 winner William McGirt (+100000), 2015 winner David Lingmerth (+100000), 2014 winner Hideki Matsuyama (+4000), and 2013 winner Matt Kuchar (+10000).
