At 12-1 Odds, This is Our Favorite PGA Championship Live Bet

Xander Schauffele leads Collin Morikawa by one shot entering the weekend. But there's a bet just down the board that looks enticing.

Through 36 holes, Xander Schauffele leads Collin Morikawa by one shot, Sahith Theegala by two, and Scottie Scheffler and Bryson DeChambeau are part of a pack three shots back. For our money, one player stands out at this point in the tournament as an intriguing live bet.

Theegala—the underdog of that group—is a compelling live bet at +1200 odds on DrafKings to lift the Wanamaker, primarily due to his putting prowess and remarkable course fit. Theegala's proficiency on the greens is nothing short of exemplary, and through two rounds he has gained +2.81 strokes on the greens. He fits the mold of a solid driver and ballstriker who is having a hot putting week.

Theegala currently offers the fifth-lowest odds on DraftKings, behind Schauffele, Scheffler, Morikawa and Bryson DeChambeau. That makes Theegala even more enticing, as he has the game to not only hang in, but earn the title.

Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
