Top Betting Odds to Win

 

The best golfers receive the best odds, which is usually how it goes anyway. However, there have been some slight movements since the opening. 

 

History at this event shows that you do not have to be a top-ranked golfer to succeed, especially since a playoff occurred last year with two top 30 ranked players. DraftKings have provided the following odds:

 

Jon Rahm +1200
Justin Thomas +1400
Viktor Hovland +1400
Scottie Scheffler +1600
Xander Schauffele +2000
Collin Morikawa +2000
Dustin Johnson +2000
Patrick Cantlay +2200
Daniel Berger +2800
Louis Oosthuizen +3000
*odds are subject to changes 

 

Potential Picks

 

The top golf ranking in the world will not matter here, as everyone is a legit professional. However, Jon Rahm still shows one of the best opportunities to win in his pod to advance into the weekend. He cannot afford any mistakes, especially being paired with Patrick Reed, Cameron Young, and Sebastian Munoz.

Collin Morikawa has an excellent opportunity to knock Rahm off his number one spot. The current second-ranked golfer in the world nearly won the Genesis Open, which was a loaded event like this. In addition, his odds have slipped back from +1600 to +2000, so this payday is even more attractive now. 

 

Daniel Berger is one of the most competitive golfers out there. As long as he keeps his cool, things will be great for him. His biggest threat is Tyrrell Hatton in his pod, which has the same competitive attitude and could cause some trash talk between the two. 

 

Winner of WGC

 

Justin Thomas is the best golfer out of his group (Kevin Kisner, Marc Leishman, Luke List) and has the biggest opportunity to set himself apart from the best golfers. 

His desire to win and his improving game are exactly what it takes to succeed here. 

 

He was just a few strokes back at the Valspar Championship and almost won. In that regard, he could not have played any better than some of the other golfers that had the hot hand. 

 

This year, Thomas has a handful of top 10 finishes and has put up some of the best strokes gained numbers from tee to green in those events. Recent momentum might be all he needs to steal a victory here.
