PGA Tour Golf Betting: Mayakoba Golf Classic

With most of the world’s top golfers competing at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, PGA Tour Golf betting players will have an obscure list of names to sort through before placing their wagers on the Mayakoba Golf Classic. However, that list includes some of the surprising golfers who have already won 2011 tournaments.

Brian Gay is the favorite to win the Mayakoba at 16/1. He won the tournament in 2008 and has started 2011 decently with three top-20 finishes. Gay also leads the Tour in fairways hit and ranks fifth in putting.

Aaron Baddeley is next at 20/1, fresh off his victory last week at the Northern Trust Open. He sizzled with every single round in the 60s. He’s never played the Mayakoba Golf Classic, however.

Another 2011 winner, Jhonattan Vegas, has the third-best odds at 22/1. He’s played well all season, posting the third-best adjusted scoring average.

J.J. Henry, Charles Howell III, Jerry Kelly and Spencer Levin all have 25/1 PGA Tour golf betting odds. Henry finished second at this tournament two years ago. Howell III has that “name” value but was just 38th at the Mayakoba in 2009 and 20th last year.

Could Levin be the top sleeper? He was a very respectable fourth at Pebble Beach and followed that showing with a 12th at the Northern Trust. Then again, he’s a ho-hum 41st on Tour in greens hit and 44th in putting. He was also 28th at the 2010 Mayakoba, so not every stat trends in his favor.
