Golf Picks

Paul Casey +125 vs. Corey Conners

Casey has been very good in match play through the years and he comes in playing well, as he finished third at THE PLAYERS. Casey has the overall game to do well in match play and we get him at plus money in this matchup against Conners.

Xander Schauffele -180 vs Takumi Kanaya

This should be the year that Schauffele gets out of the group stage. He gets one of the easiest groups with two players who are in this event for the first time and Tony Finau who is not playing well. I will lay the price and take Schauffele in this matchup.

Daniel Berger -115 vs. Si Woo Kim +150

Berger is another player who is overdue to get out of the group stage. He leads the PGA Tour in scrambling and he is ninth in Shots Gained: Tee-to-Green. He is also second in bogey avoidance. I think this is a matchup he should dominate and the price against Kim is short.

Viktor Hovland -150 vs. Sepp Straka

Hovland is definitely capable of winning this event and I don’t see him having too much trouble against Straka. Hovland is one of the favorites in golf betting odds to win this week and the price against Straka in this first match seems reasonable.

Sungjae Im +105 vs. Seamus Power

One of the players that has the perfect game for match play is Im and we get him at a bargain price in this matchup against Power. I except Im to have a good chance to advance out of the group stage so that means he gets this win against Power.

Russell Henley -105 vs. Kevin Na +140

If there is one player who can make putts to win matches it is Henley and he is listed at a short price in this first round matchup against Na. I will take Henley to get an early win.
