American Century Championship: Latest Odds, Trends for Celebrity Golf Tournament

Bet golf with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

Whether it’s Hall of Famers, current top athletes or big-name celebrities, this year’s American Century Championship field has it all. William Hill Nevada has odds for all 90 competitors who will be teeing off at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course in a 54-hole tournament starting on Friday.

The scoring system for the American Century Championship is as follows: 10 points for an albatross, 8 points for a hole-in-one, 6 points for an eagle, 3 points for a birdie, 1 point for par, 0 points for a bogey and -2 points for a double bogey or worse.

“We’re getting solid action on this,” said Nick Bogdanovich, Director of Trading for William Hill US. “It’s on TV, it has a nice following and people that go up there to watch this like to have a bet on it. The majority of the bets are on who will win the tournament compared to the head-to-head matchups.”

Tony Romo is the current +150 favorite at William Hill to win the American Century Championship, followed by Mardy Fish at +200 and Mark Mulder at +400.

Fish reeled in his first American Century Championship in 2020, as the former professional tennis player finished on top with 76 points. Romo had finished in first place in 2018 and 2019, whereas Mulder pulled off the threepeat from 2015-17.

John Smoltz, Kyle Williams and Annika Sorenstam are tied for the fourth-lowest odds at +800, followed by Stephen Curry at 12/1. Joining the Warriors superstar in this field are his brother Seth (100/1) and father Dell (75/1).

Other notable current athletes participating are Aaron Rodgers (150/1), Larry Fitzgerald (300/1), Patrick Mahomes (500/1), Kyle Lowry (1000/1), Travis Kelce (2000/1) and Canelo Alvarez (2000/1).

At the bottom of the board is NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, who is listed at 7500/1. Yet Barkley (7%) is only behind Sorenstam (13%) for total number of tickets to win the American Century Classic. Meanwhile, Romo (22%) leads the way in total dollars wagered with Sorenstam next at 16%.

Among William Hill’s props offered for the American Century Championship, Barkley finishing in the top 70 is drawing strong interest.

“They’re betting that prop, whether Barkley will finish in the top 70,” Bogdanovich said. “We actually have good-sized liability on that prop, they took the big plus prize that he will finish there. That’s been the most popular prop so far for this.”

“YES” for a top-70 finish from Barkley opened at +1600 and is now all the way down to +475. “NO” top-70 finish is still the heavy chalk at -650. A resounding 98% of the total number of tickets and 99% of the total dollars wagered are on YES in this market.
