LIV DC Betting Preview

This will be the first time LIV is participating at the Trump National Golf Course, so no tournament history with the promotion. This course is a Par 72 and measures approximately 7,479 yards.

It is a relatively newer golf course as it debuted in 2016. It featured the 2017 Senior PGA Championship and is popular for its 15th hole Par-3 at only 210 yards. 

During that tournament in 2017, the winning score was -18 so expect a lot of the world’s best to get close to that amount. Golfers who are able to drive long off the tee and make putts will likely do the best.

Golfers with Best Chance to Win

The following golfers have the best chance to win or at least place within the top 10.

Bryson DeChambeau +1600

DeChambeau is always a favorite on courses that reward golfers with long drives. He is coming off of a T4 finish at the PGA Championship and was seventh at Tulsa (LIV) earlier this year. He has struggled on Bentgrass greens so this could hurt him again.

Brooks Koepka +800

Koepka was ecstatic to win again on the PGA Tour after a rough patch the last year or so. He is finally back in the conversation for dominant golfers and has another opportunity to score back to back wins across two promotions. He is coming off of the PGA Championship and a win earlier the year in Orlando.

Cameron Smith +800

Smith has also earned the favorite title alongside Koepka this week. He is coming off of a T9 finish at the PGA Championship and also has three consecutive top seven finishes under the LIV promotion. His previous momentum should set him up well this week.

The following moneylines from Bookmaker show these are the top five golfers as favorites to win the LIV DC tournament. Brooks Koepka and Cameron Smith are co-favorites to win.

  • Brooks Koepka: +800

  • Cameron Smith: +800

  • Dustin Johnson: +1200

  • Bryson DeChambeau: +1600

  • Mito Pereira: +1600

  • *odds are subject to changes

Dustin Johnson +1200

Johnson struggled to barely make the cut at the PGA Championship, but he has been dominant in LIV golf tournaments. He won the LIV Golf Tulsa event and is aiming to win a second straight one.

He also showcased one of his best putting performances at Tulsa, averaging 1.37 putts a hole. On top do that, he is great on Bentgrass greens so this course compliments his game very well.

Final Pick: Take Dustin Johnson to Win at +1200
