Always a popular stop on the PGA Tour, the Waste Management Phoenix Open typically attracts a strong field and a raucous gallery. And this year is no different. Coming off a runner-up finish at the Farmers Insurance Open last week, Jon Rahm opened as the betting favorite at online sportsbooks. Defending champion Rickie Fowler is also up the odds board as is two-time champion Hideki Matsuyama. There is competition from the European Tour this week that thinned the field a little, but that won’t prevent TPC Scottsdale from throwing a big party this weekend. Visit BookMaker.eu for a complete list of betting odds when you’re ready to place a wager.
