WGC-HSBC Champions betting odds: Favorites and underdogs in China

The PGA Tour heads to Shanghai, China, this week for the 2018 WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC. A huge turnout of PGA Tour stars have made the trip overseas for this early-season event, with seven of the world’s top ten-ranked players in attendance. But who is the favorite at the WGC-HSBC Champions in terms of betting odds?

Newly minted World No. 1 Brooks Koepka is in the field, fresh off his victory at the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges last week. His odds currently top the list of favorites at 8/1.

But despite his stellar credentials, Koepka isn’t the sole betting favorite. Former World No. 1 Dustin Johnson and 2018 FedEx Cup champion Justin Rose are right there with him, creating a trio of tournament favorites with 8/1 odds.

As it happens, Rose is also the defending champion. He memorably made up eight shots during the final round to overtake Dustin Johnson and claim the trophy last year.

Rory McIlroy is next on the list with 10/1 odds, followed by Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama and Tony Finau at 16/1. Ryder Cuppers Tommy Fleetwood (18/1), Francesco Molinari (20/1), Jon Rahm (20/1), Paul Casey (20/1), Patrick Reed (40/1), Ian Poulter (50/1) and Throbjorn Olesen (60/1) are also playing.
