Golf Live Betting: Rory McIlroy Aims High at the BMW ChampionshipPublished September 5, 2014 by Amir G
Bet live on the world's best golfers as the second day of the BMW Championship tees of today with live coverage by bet365 Sports (6:30pm UK time).
Colorado's Cherry Hills Golf Club is the host for the third of four FedEx Cup playoff events, also the second oldest event in the PGA Tour, the BMW Championship. The second day of the contest is teeing off today with bet365 Sports starting to cover the event at 6:30pm UK time. Beside for its long standing in the PGA Tour and the $8 million prize fund and $1.4 million winner's share, this year's BMW Championship is interesting because many of the 69 players taking part in the event never played a competitive round at the venue.
Rory McIlroy Top Favorite
It might not come as a shock, but current world number one Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland is the top favorite for winning the championship, sitting on an impressive 4/1 in To Win Outright odds at bet365 Sports.
Having had setbacks lately at the Deutsche Bank Championship and the TPC Boston, some are estimating that we won't see a smashing performance by McIlroy this championship. The Northern Irishman himself proved his big hitting capabilities when he broke the driving range at Cherry Hills in a practice session. McIlroy won the BMW Championship two years ago in Indiana's Crooked Stick Golf Club.
Odds at bet365 Sports
In To Win Outright bets odds at bet365 Sports, McIlroy is followed by the Australian Adam Scott who sits at 11/1, Jason Day at 12/1, Justin Rose with 18/1, followed by Henrik Stenson and Rickie Fowler who are both on 20/1.
bet365 has a wide range of outright betting markets as well as bets on the different rounds of the BMW Championship, with details going down as deep as the nationality of the top players and from which continent they come. Tune-in bet365 Sports this weekend for wagering on action from the world's best golfers.
