While the Players isn’t officially a major, it will look like one thanks to a stacked field chock-full of the best golfers in the world. Nearly all of the top-50 in the rankings will be at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach this week competing for a share of a record-high $12.5 million prize pool. Unfortunately for bettors, with this much talent out on one course it can be an extremely tough tournament to predict a winner for.

Fortunately, pro handicapper Jon Price of SportsInformationTraders.com has provided his take on not only which player will win golf’s “fifth major”, but also some exciting prop bets as well. The sportsbooks have released plenty of intriguing exotics for the 2019 Players Championship, including a number regarding the famous Island Green at hole No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass. They’ve also adjusted the odds for a number of participants based on the early action from both the public and sharps.

One golfer that is trending upwards is Francesco Molinari, who is coming off a victory at least week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational. The Italian is picking up right where he left off during a sterling 2018 season in which he won the British Open, became the first player to go 5-0 during his Ryder Cup matches and racked up more than $5 million in earnings. Bettors are certainly taking notice of his recent performance, causing shops to shift Molinari’s odds from 33-1 up to 20-1.

A player that the public has cooled on a bit is Tiger Woods, who has seen his odds drop over the last couple of days. Although Woods officially decided to give it a go at the 2019 Players Championship on Monday—after taking last week off to nurse a neck injury—fans haven’t been flocking to back the 14-time major champion. The 43-year-old’s betting line fell from 13-1 to 20-1, which still puts him within the top-five for the tournament. He’s behind only co-favorites Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy (+1200) and Justin Thomas (+1400), while being equal with Rickie Fowler, Justin Rose, Brooks Koepka and Molinari (+2000).

Will Tiger even have what it takes to make the cut at TPC Sawgrass this week, let alone win the thing for the first time in six years? That’s just one of the questions that Jon Price has an answer to for potential bettors. Before getting to that and the rest of the Vegas expert’s predictions for this thrilling event, have a look at the complete tourney schedule, tee times, pairings, TV coverage, live stream info and updated odds for the field at the 2019 Players Championship:

Players Championship 2019: The Players Championship has a major reputation for a reason. It carries the prestige and the purse to stack up to the PGA Tour’s premier tournaments, and TPC Sawgrass, one of golf’s iconic courses, provides the perfect backdrop for Tiger Woods and the sport’s biggest stars up and down the leaderboard.

The Players Championship, back in its March spot on the calendar for the first time since 2006, is the flagship event of the PGA Tour and for years has been considered golf’s unofficial fifth major. Annually boasting one of the strongest overall fields of the year, the 2019 edition of The Players Championship also boasts the largest purse in the history of the game with a cool $12.5 million on the line, $2.25 million going to the winner.

144 of the top players in the world, including the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking, have made their way to the famed Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass this week for four days of drama-filled golf and there are plenty of ways to keep up with all the action.

For those looking at streaming options for The Players Championship, there are a number of ways to keep up with all the happenings from TPC Sawgrass. The NBC Sports app is a great place to start as you can get the same coverage you would with the television coverage listed above.

Woods, who won The Players in 2001 and 2013, is resuming his 2019 tournament schedule after skipping last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a neck strain. The 14-time major champion was off to a strong start to the PGA Tour season before the injury and will look to pick up where he left off at golf’s “fifth major.”
