2014 PGA Valero Texas Open Odds To Win: Three Golfers Favored
By Drew Sharper

SAN ANTONIO, TX (TheSpread) – The 2014 PGA Tour heads south this week for the Valero Texas Open. Here is a look at the odds to win this event.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson and Zach Johnson are equally favored to win, as the three have 16/1 odds.

Mickelson is fifth in the world rankings entering this event, but his 2014 hasn’t been off to a great start. He has not finished in the top 10 in his last five events and missed a cut in the Honda Classic.

Kuchar is 11th in the world rankings. He has been pretty steady this year, earning three top 10s and a 13th-place finish in six events. He finished 22nd in this tournament a year ago.

Zach Johnson is a two-time winner of this tournament, with his last win coming in 2009. Johnson opened 2014 with a win and then followed that up with a pair of top-10 finishes, but he has finished outside the top 15 in his last four events, including a 43rd-place finish last week. Johnson is currently 10th in the world rankings.

The PGA Valero Texas Open takes place March 27-30 from AT&T Oaks Course. For a look at the odds to win this golf tournament, see below.

Re: 2014 PGA Valero Texas Open Odds To Win: Three Golfers Favored

Phil made Texas favorite
By Sportsbook.ag

Tournament: Valero Texas Open
Date: Mar. 27-30, 2014
Venue: TPC San Antonio, Oaks Course
Location: San Antonio, Texas
2013 Winner: Martin Laird

The PGA Tour heads to San Antonio this weekend for the Valero Texas Open, a tournament that has been going since 1922 and generally boasts a low-scoring victor with a score of 10-under par or better in eight of the past 10 events. Last year, Martin Laird pulled out his third career PGA Tour victory with a 14-under par score, capped off by a 9-under par 63 on Sunday.

Let’s take a look at a few of the 144-player field that could make their way to the top of the leaderboard on this Par-72, 7,433-yard course this weekend.

Golfers to Watch

Zach Johnson (15/1):
Johnson has top-10 finishes in four of 10 PGA Tour events this season, including two victories. He has had tremendous success hitting the green in regulation (72.0%, 10th on tour) and putting (1.73 per hole, 13th on tour) leading to a scoring average of 69.76 (9th on tour.) Although he has not placed better than 16th over his past four events, he certainly has the ability to score low and earn his third victory of the season here.

Ryan Palmer (23/1): Palmer has come up short twice already this season as the runner-up in the Humana Challenge and also in his most recent tourney; the Honda Classic. He has been long off the tee this year (300.2 yards per, 16th on tour) leading to a 57.29% success rate at scoring a birdie or better on Par-5’s this season, the third best percentage on the PGA Tour. Palmer will be looking to win his first event since 2010 this weekend.

Kevin Na (40/1): Na has been all over the place this year, placing in the top-20 in 6-of-11 events but also missing the cut three times. He has done well putting, ranking 17th overall in strokes gained from putting (.611) and is currently 12th in the FedEx Cup standings. Na is having his best season of his career and could be in line for his second PGA victory against a fairly shallow field in San Antonio.

Charley Hoffman (25/1): Hoffman placed third at this tournament last year and 13th in 2012, so he knows his way around the course. He has also been strong this season, getting into the top-9 in three of 10 events and hitting 70.5% of greens in regulation (23rd on Tour.) Hoffman should be considered a darkhorse candidate to top the leaderboard with his favorable 25-to-1 odds.

Valero Texas Open Preview and Picks
By Matt Fargo
Playbook.com

The tour leaves Florida following Matt Every's first PGA Tour win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and heads to Texas at another difficult venue. The Valero Texas Open takes place this week from the AT&T Oaks Course in San Antonio. This is the fifth year that the Oaks will host this event and this is the fifth different schedule switch as it has not fallen on the same week. In 2010, it was in May, in 2011, it was the week after the Masters, in 2012, it followed the RBC Heritage and last year it preceded the Masters.

Last year, the Oaks was the fourth difficult out of 22 Par 72 courses in non-majors including fifth toughest in fairways hit and fourth toughest in greens hit and the 7,435-yard layout is expected to play difficult again this year. This is a shotmakers course and that is proven with the way the par fives are played. The scoring average on those holes last year came in at just under par for the third straight year and that average was the fourth highest of any other course.

With just five years played here, it is difficult to look at how players have fared in this event and that means a lot of the past history prior to that from La Cantera can be tossed away. However, this is still in Texas and Texas golf is still in effect so those who can hit through wind and keep the ball low will be rewarded. Temperatures will be moderate and lots of sun for the weekend is forecasted. This Greg Norman designed layout emphasizes ball striking while distance is a plus as well.

The favorite this week is Phil Mickelson (+1,350) despite him having a pretty average year with his best finish being a solo 14th back in November at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions. He has never played the Oaks course as his last visit in this event was way back in 1992 when it was knows as the H.E.B. Texas Open. Sorry lefty, we will pass.

Jordan Spieth (+1,800) took last week off following his T20 at the Valspar Championship and he looks to grab his first win of the season after winning once in 2013. He has been close with a solo second at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and while he has only played this event twice, including missing the cut last year, he has taken his game to a different level since then.

Charley Hoffman (+2,500) may have cut his hair and has not won since 2010 but he is playing some solid golf this season. He has three top tens and is coming off a T12 and a T25 in his last two starts. Getting back into the winners circle is very possible here as he has never finished outside of the top 13 in four appearances at the Oaks. This includes a T3 last year and a T2 in 2011.

Brendan Steele (+3,000) isn't a household name but that is ideal for betting purposes. He won here in 2011 and followed that up with a T4 in 2012. He finished T46 last year but had only one top 25 coming into that. It is a different story this year as he already has five top 25's including a T6 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and a T10 at the Northern Trust Open.

After a great start to the season, Billy Horschel (+4,000) has slowed down with his best medal play finish being a T23 at the Farmers Insurance Open over his last six starts. This comes after three straight top sixes between November and January but the Oaks could be the place that leads to a turnaround. He finished T3 here last year after being the 36-hole leader.

Cameron Tringale (+5,500) will be this week's longshot choice. He says he loves playing in the wind and this place is just the thing for that. He missed the cut here last year but prior to that, he finished T8 in 2012 and T5 in 2011 so he has had success here. He hasn't placed in the top ten this season but he has a pair of T12 finishes at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the Northern Trust Open.
