2024 American Express Odds, Predictions: Favorites and Picks from the Field

The PGA Tour heads to La Quinta, California this week to play the American Express Tournament.

A unique feature of this event is that it will be played on three separate courses: PGA West Stadium Course, PGA West Nicklaus Course and La Quinta Country Club.

The field is loaded with stars, which should make for a competitive tournament from start to finish. Last year's champion Jon Rahm will not defend his title as he recently signed with LIV Golf.

When it comes to tournament betting, we've got you covered with everything you need, from odds to best bets.

Let's dive into its action.


As has been the case for most PGA tournaments over the past year, Scottie Scheffler is the favorite to win at +500. Cantlay and Schauffele aren't far behind, at +900 and +1100 respectively.

Now that we're out of the basics, let's get to the top-10 favorites and my portfolio for this tournament.


Scotty Scheffler: +500 (bet $10 to win $60 total)
Patrick Cantley: +900 (bet $10 to win $100 total)
Xander Schauffele: +1100 (bet $10 to win $120 total)
Sungjae Im: +2000 (bet $10 to win $210 total)
Justin Thomas: +2200 (bet $10 to win $230 total)
Min Woo Lee: +2500 ($10 bet win $260 total)
Tom Kim: +2800 (bet $10 to win $290 total)
Eric Cole: +3000 (Bet $10 to win a total of $310)
Sam Barnes: +3000 (Bet $10 to win a total of $310)

To make long-shot outright bets

If you follow me Twitter Or read this column, you know I like to bet on golf long shots (+2000 or more). There's something thrilling about holding a lottery ticket late on a Sunday. It also presents you with multiple hedging opportunities if you want to eliminate some of your risk.

I know there are some big names in this week's event, but I see a dark horse making some noise. Most of my bets this week are based on course history. Here are some people worth splashing out on pizza for:

Tom Kim +2800
Sam Barnes +3000
JT Poston +3000
Wyndham Clark +4500
Adam Hadwin +5500
Troy Merit +40000
