THE PLAYERS Championship Picks
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, FL (ATS CONSULTANTS) –THE PLAYERS Championship tees off on Thursday. Here are a few picks to consider for this golf tournament.
According to oddsmakers from BetDSI, Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott are the favorites this weekend, as each has 14/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Matt Kuchar (18/1) and Sergio Garcia (20/1).
Here are our predictions for this weekend’s tournament.
Spieth is up to seventh in the world rankings and emerging as a big star in the golf world at the ripe age of 20. He has nine top 20s this year and five top 10s, including a runner-up finish at The Masters. No tournament is too big for Spieth at this point and this weekend is no different. Look for him to be right in the mix this weekend and in a position to win on Sunday.
Furyk has had a nice run as of late, placing 14th or better in four straight events, including a runner-up finish last weekend. He is up to 14th in the world rankings and has yet to miss a cut this year. We suggest riding Furyk’s hot play, as his ability to find the top 10 will eventually lead to a victory. With 33/1 odds, that could lead to a huge payout.
Walker is coming off a missed cut last weekend, but the last time he missed a cut, he won the next event. He already has two wins this year and finished eighth at The Masters. He is gaining confidence and emerging as a top player in the golf world. He should find himself in the mix come the weekend, and one big round on Saturday or Sunday will place him in line to win.
