Betting On The PGA Could Pay At West Virginia Sportsbooks This Weekend

Posted on August 7, 2020

A sentence that many sportswriters might have doubted they would be able to write this year is now relevant: a golf major is in action right now.

PGA Championship betting is sure to be a hot-ticket item at West Virginia online sportsbooks this weekend.

While that might be the headliner, there are other events worth your time as well. BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel have a variety of specials on the entire array of sporting events.

PGA Championship betting tees off

The PGA Championship is on the course right now and so are promos at WV sports betting apps. The 102nd edition of this event takes place at Harding Park in San Francisco, CA.

ESPN has streaming/television coverage of Thursday’s action but BetMGM, DraftKings, and FanDuel have you covered for betting markets in WV.

BetMGM Sportsbook starts its promos with a large number of props on whether individual contestants will make the cut.

For example, Tiger Woods is -223 to make and +155 to miss. The same sportsbook has other special markets on Woods as well.

BetMGM offers +500 odds on Woods finishing a round without a bogey at any point in the tournament. If you prefer to wager on Bryson DeChambeau, however, you can also find specials on his performance.

BetMGM has DeChambeau +600 to make an eagle this weekend. DeChambeau is not the favorite at any of the WV books, however.

BetMGM and FanDuel have Brooks Koepka as their favorites to win this major, at +900 and +1000, respectively. DraftKings has +900 on its favorite as well, but that’s Justin Thomas.

DraftKings and FanDuel also have boosts for the PGA Championship.

DraftKings Sportsbook is offering a 50% profit boost you can use every day of the event and FanDuel has boosted the odds on its entire Tournament Winning Score market.

If you’d prefer to stay in the clubhouse and bet on the NBA seeding games this weekend, the same three sportsbooks have the hardcourt covered as well.

Maximize your bets on Friday’s 76ers game

The Philadelphia 76ers are in action Friday on TNT against the Orlando Magic, with tip set to come at 6:30 p.m. ET. While Philadelphia has clinched a playoff berth, the team is still playing to improve its seeding in the coming playoffs.

DraftKings and FanDuel have a great pair of guarantees against lost bets that can give you confidence if you want to wager on a 76ers win. If Philly performs well in the game, there’s really no way you can lose.

At DraftKings, the sportsbook will cover your losses in site credit (up to $25) if you place a pregame moneyline wager on the 76ers and they score at least 110 points in a loss to Orlando.

FanDuel Sportsbook, meanwhile, will do the same (up to $50) if Philidelphia leads at the end of the third quarter but blows that lead in the fourth quarter or overtime.

Philly has won two of its three seeding games so far, last beating the Washington Wizards 107-98 on Wednesday night. The Magic, meanwhile, have split their four games since the restart, losing their last two times out.

More games of regional interest are taking place in MLB’s regular season. As you would expect, our trio of sports betting apps is ready to help you win some money there as well.

MLB promos to consider

Thursday night’s New York Yankees vs. Philadelphia Phillies is the focus of a few sterling chances this weekend. The 6:05 p.m. ET tilt pits Philadelphia’s Zach Elfin against New York’s Jordan Montgomery.

BetMGM has the Phillies a +130 underdog on its moneyline. DraftKings has made this contest its Game of the Week as well.

To take advantage of that promotion, opt-in and place a pregame moneyline bet on either side of the market of at least $50. DraftKings will reward you with site credit equal to $10 x the number of runs your respective team scores during the game.

FanDuel also has a Super Boost on tonight’s game. It’s a prop on the Yankees winning and New York outfielder Aaron Judge hitting a home run during the contest. The odds currently sit at +430.

These are just some of the ways you can win some cash betting on this weekend’s sporting events at WV online sportsbooks. The best ways to make some green this weekend might be on the PGA Championship greens, however.
