Arnold Palmer Invite Predictions
The 2019 PGA Arnold Palmer Invitational tees off on Thursday morning and features a very competitive field of the top golfers in the world.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Rory McIlroy is favored to win this weekend, as he has 13/2 odds. Other short odds to win are Justin Rose (10/1), Brooks Koepka (11/1) and Rickie Fowler (12/1). The PGA Arnold Palmer Invitational takes place Thursday-Sunday from Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida.
Jason Day 14/1
Day is a former winner of this event, taking the championship in 2016. He had a bounce back year in 2018, winning two events with six top-10 finishes. This year, Day has finished in the top 5 in two of his three events. The other finish was 13th. I like the way Day’s game has come together lately and he should be quite comfortable at this course. I think he could be the man to beat.
Bryson DeChambeau 16/1
DeChambeau has been a hot-and-cold golfer over the last few years, and he has been a little cold as of late. He has finished outside the top 10 over his last two events, but I think he can turn things around this weekend. DeChambeau was runner-up in this event last year and he has five wins over the last 12 months of play. I feel like his odds are a little longer than they should be for the fifth-ranked golfer in the world. There is value with DeChambeau this weekend.
Henrik Stenson 50/1
Stenson is having an awful 2019 season, but I think his 50/1 odds provide some really good value for you this weekend. He has missed the cut three times in four events this year and placed 54th in the other. It just hasn’t been pretty for him. However, he ended 2018 with two straight top-5 finishes. His game is still there, he just needs a spark to get him going again. I think that spark can come this weekend. Stenson finished fourth in this event last year and was the runner up in 2015. This is a tournament he has done well at and should give him some confidence to shake out of his slump. With such long odds, a small wager could give you a big payout if Stenson gets on track.
