The PGA Tour is officially back in the swing of things with two events under its belt following a three-month quarantine period due to the COVID-19.
The PGA Tour heads to TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, CT for the 2020 Travelers Championship, which begins with opening-round play on Thursday, June 25, wrapping up with the final round on Sunday, June 28.
BetRivers.com is proud to provide a wide variety of Travelers Championships odds, props and live betting all tournament long. Interested in tracking Bryson DeChambeau? BetRivers has a handful of player markets for you to dive into during each round.
The Travelers Championship will be broadcast on The Golf Channel and CBS and can be streamed on Twitter, PGA Live and ESPN+. The radio broadcast of the RBC Heritage can be heard on Sirius/XM radio.
Both the two previous events, the Charles Schwab Challenge and the RBC Heritage, were widely popular betting events on BetRivers.com. The Charles Schwab Challenge did more than one and one-half times the handle of “The Match 2” featuring Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Phil Mickelson. The RBC Heritage account for nearly half of all wagers placed on BerRivers.com this past weekend.
On Wednesday, four players withdrew from the Travelers Championship due to COVID-19 concerns after plyer Cameron Champ and the caddies for Graeme McDowell and Brooks Koepka tested positive. Champ, McDowell and Koepka all withdrew, along with RBC Heritage winner Webb Simpson and Chase Koepka, the younger brother of Brooks Koepka.

Travelers Championship Odds: Betting Preview
For the first time since the PGA returned from quarantine, Rory McIlroy (+900) is not the moneyline favorite to win the event. McIlroy had entered the previous two events as the top favorite but managed to finish in 32nd place and 41st place, respectively. That being said, McIlroy is still one of the top two favorites and leads the PGA in first-round scoring average.
Justin Thomas (+800) enters the Travelers Championship as the odds-on favorite, with an eighth-place finish at the RBC Heritage and a tenth place finish at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Thomas has seven top-ten finishes this season, including two victories. Thomas remains neat and tidy around the green, ranking sixth in greens-in-regulation and third in birdie-or-better percentage.
Jon Rahm (+1600) has the talent to win every weekend but has yet to put it together since the PGA Tour’s return. Rahm finished in 33rd place last week after failing to miss the cut a week prior.
Gaining momentum since the return of golf is Abraham Ancer (+2200), who finished in second place at the RBC Heritage and in 14th place at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Ancer was just a few missed putts away from claiming victory last week, and it’s quite possible he’s the best player on the tour without a tour victory.
Take note of Bubba Watson (+2500). The two-time Master’s winner is a three-time winner at the Travelers Championship, with victories in 2010, 2015, and 2018, along with a second-place finish in 2012. Watson has three top 10 finishes this year, including a T7 at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
