The Odds: Rory McIlroy Favorite at Memorial Tournament

The PGA Tour heads Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio for the Memorial Tournament this week.

Rory McIlroy, fresh off his first win of the 2014 season, is the favorite at 8-to-1 odds posted at the LVH SuperBook. He won the European Tour’s signature event, the BMW PGA Championship. Unlike earlier in the season when he had issues with sloppy finishes, McIlroy was sharp in the final round and overcame a seven-stroke deficit to finish atop the pack.

Adam Scott (10-to-1), Matt Kuchar (12-to-1), and Justin Rose (15-to-1) are among the second tier of betting choices this week.

If you’re looking for a longer price, The Linemakers on Sporting News’ Brian Blessing offers this:

“Jim Furyk (25-to-1) has been solid this season, and with the U.S. Open around the corner, he could make a statement this week. Live long shots include Bo Van Pelt at 50-to-1 and K.J. Choi at 80-to-1.”
