What are the Players Championship Odds 2020
The outright market for the 2020 The Players Championship Sawgrass event will be available soon and odds will fluctuate heavily as the tournament approaches. We expect betting odds will be posted in December.
Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy took home the 2019 TPC trophy, and he is one of the big contenders in the odds to win Players Championship 2020 market. He will be a top favorite to go back to back in 2020 at TPC Sawgrass.
McIlroy is one of a host of big names who will be vying for supremacy at The Players. Long time world number-one Dustin Johnson is one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour and is never far back on the leaderboard. 2019 Masters winner Tiger Woods has surged back into Major contention in the last six months, and may be great value at if he stays injury-free.
And of course, Brooks Koepka will be another of the elite golfers looking to bring home golf's biggest pay check and continue his excellent recent form. He will be near the top of the list of Players Championship odds for the victory.

Other available The Players betting odds
The Players betting odds are not just limited to the outright market. There is a huge selection of odds available, which gives you the flexibility you need to make a winning bet. We discuss several options below.
McIlroy and Woods will be top favorites in this category!
Our pick of the betting markets is the 'Best Previous Winner' market, which lets you select who you think will be the best player in 2020 out of the guys that previously lifted the trophy. Top contenders in this market include two-time winner Tiger Woods, 2019 winner Rory McIlroy and 2017 winner Jason Day. Phil Mickelson will be aiming for another victory after a sub-par 2019 season.
If you're finding it difficult to select a winner from a field of over 140 golfers, don't worry. You can also select players to finish high in the 'Top 20 Finish' market. Here, you can really apply your golfing knowledge, as it will be much more profitable to pick an outsider than one of the favourites.
In 2019, young Englishman Eddie Pepperell defied the odds and finished in a tie for third at TPC - He was well over odds of 8.00 to do so. For an extensive list of all the types of golfing bets you can make, check out our golf odds page.
Who's favored to win The Players Championship
American Brooks Koepka has surged up the world golf rankings recently as he has won the US Open and PGA Championships on two occasions. That makes him a candidate to dominate Men's golf for years to come. Koepka will still be less than 30 years old when The Players 2020 gets underway and he has at least a decade where the world could be at his feet.
Given his form, it's fair to suggest that Koepka will be labelled as the favourite to win the 2020 Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, and his odds will definitely be a worthwhile bet once available online.
Koepka should also be hungry for a win at TPC given that he has never hit the top-ten at this event. He finished with an equal course record of 63 at the event in 2018 yet still finished seven behind winner Webb Simpson, and he ended 14 strokes behind Rory McIlroy in 2019; this should be motivation enough for him to come out of the blocks in 2020.
Of the other players to be in with a chance, you can almost certainly rule out Rory McIlroy, and not because he is in bad form. It has become folklore that the defending champion will never win at TPC Sawgrass - because it's never happened.
In fact, the winner from the previous year has never finished within four strokes of the new victor - can you afford to back against this curse?
Dustin Johnson simply needs to be brought up in The Players Championship picks to win conversation simply because he is Mr Consistent. Despite not winning a major since the 2016 US Open, Johnson has managed to hold onto the world number-one spot for well over a year. His inability to finish the job does worry us, but he should be considered a lock in the top-ten market.
There are a stack of other names that we could mention - any one of the top fifty golfers could potentially win at TPC in 2020.
To put that statement into context, 2018 winner Webb Simpson hadn't won on the tour in five years prior to his success. All it took (it was no small feat) was a round of 63 to tie the course record and set up an unassailable lead.
Jason Day did the exact same thing in 2016, shooting 63 during his victory in Florida. So these players are all capable, yet the odds on Day and Simpson winning the tournament in 2020 will be longshot prices. That is an indication of just how hard it will be to pick a winner.
Our pick for 2020 at this VERY early stage is Dustin Johnson. He's simply too good a player to not go on a run at TPC Sawgrass. Don't bet against Johnson hitting a 63 either - he is certainly capable of it.

How does the competition work
The Open is a typical stroke-play golf tournament where the lowest scoring player over four rounds is declared the winner.
In the event that two or more players are tied at the end of the four rounds, a playoff will be enforced. This involves the leaders playing three extra hole(s) to determine the outright winner, and if the scores are still tied, sudden-death playoff holes will ensue until there is one clear winner.
How many players make the cut at The Players Championship?
Out of a field of approximately 140, which is one of the biggest on tour, around half will be 'cut' after the first two rounds.
Typically, the players eligible to continue to the final rounds will be in the top-70 on the leaderboard, although if there are too many players tied on or around the cut-line, a 54 player cut may also be enforced to reduce the number of rounds played over the weekend.
Is the Players Championship a major?
The Players Championship is often mistaken for a major, because of its status as one of the PGA Tour's flagship events. It has also been dubbed the 'Fifth Major' for this reason.
But no, The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass is not a major.
All-time list of winners
The Players Championship has been held since 1974 and yet in this time there has only been one player who has recorded more than two victories - the great Jack Nicklaus, who won in 1974, 1976 and 1978.

- Fred Couples (1984, 1996)
- Steve Elkington (1991, 1997)
- Hal Sutton (1983, 2000)
- Davis Love III (1992, 2003)
