Bets to Contemplate
Dustin Johnson Prime 5 (+400)
That is clearly not pretty much as good a payoff as if he places all of it collectively and wins the occasion, which he’s greater than able to, nevertheless it offers us some wiggle room with one of many high gamers on the earth and +400 for a maintain of 4 days just isn’t too unhealthy. He’s eleventh within the rankings so regardless that his final PGA win was greater than two years in the past (2020 Masters) he has nonetheless been enjoying fairly good golf.
Joaquin Niemann +2200
I’ve seen odds on Niemann over +3000 so undoubtedly store round for the perfect worth. He must be nice on a course the place you do not have to be as exact along with your first and second pictures. There are going to be some low scores and he has already proved he is aware of the right way to win an occasion, successful the Genesis earlier this season.
Will Zalatoris +2200
He’s in the identical vary as Niemann and has been shut a couple of instances in 2022 with 4 high 6 finishes. The one factor that provides me pause is that he was not nice at this course final yr, ending seventeenth.
Sam Burns +1800
Burns completed second final yr, only a few strokes off the lead, so we all know he can carry out at this course. He has received the Valspar two years in a row, demonstrating that when he’s good at a course he can repeat that efficiency, making this one actually value a shot.
Scottie Scheffler Prime 5 (+270)
It’s onerous to choose an outright winner of a golf event, that’s the reason even when there’s a stable favourite you’re getting odds of +700 or higher. Scheffler is in nice type and has been all season. He has completed within the high 5 in 5 of his final 14 occasions. There may be principally no purpose to not take this wager aside from he has not been nice at this course previously.
