The Favorite: Phil Mickelson

Mickelson has had some success in 2008, winning the Northern Trust Open by two strokes over Jeff Quinney on February 17, and the Crowne Plaze Invitational at Colonial by one stroke over Tim Clark and Rod Pampling on May 25. In tournament play this year, Mickelson tied for fifth at the Masters, but finished 18th and 19th at the U.S. Open and The Open Championship, respectively. Based on Mickelson’s recent track record at the USPGA Championship (he won the event in 2005), it’s clear why oddsmakers consider him the favorite at 10/1. (Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Tiger Woods – the winner of the past two PGA Championships – won’t be playing this year.)

The Value: Padraig Harrington

Harrington’s odds to win the 2008 PGA Championship have been set at 16/1, perhaps making him an outstanding value bet at 16/1. Harrington is coming off another victory at The Open Championship (his second in two years) and finished fifth at The Masters. He hasn’t had a ton of success at the PGA Championship in the past (he finished 42nd in 2007), but once again might be a great value bet at 16/1.

The Long Shot Sleeper: Vijay Singh

Perhaps the long shot sleeper in this year’s PGA Championship is the veteran Singh, who has been made a 25/1 long shot to win. Singh has had a rough year after being cut at the British Open and finishing 65th at the U.S. Open. His highest tournament finish this year was 14th at The Masters, but what makes him a long shot sleeper is the fact that he won the PGA Championship in 2004. Given his success and the fact that there isn’t really a heavy favorite this year with Tiger Woods out, Sign might be a solid sleeper bet.
