Shell Houston Open Free Picks
The Shell Houston Open beings its play on Thursday morning. Here are some golfers we think will be near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday.
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Jordan Spieth is favored to win this tournament, as he has 6/1 odds. Henrik Stenson, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson are all listed with 12/1 odds to win. The Shell Houston Open takes place Thursday-Sunday from the Golf Club of Houston in Humble, Texas.
Rickie Fowler is having a strong 2016 thus far with one win and five top-10 finishes. We like him with 12/1 odds coming to a course where he placed sixth two years ago. With The Masters next weekend, Fowler needs some more positive momentum if he hopes to claim his first major. We think he gets it in Texas.
Louis Oosthuizen has 20/1 odds and we feel he is one of the more consistent players in this field. He moved to 11th in the world rankings after finishing runner-up at last week’s Match Play event and he has four top 10’s in 2016 with one victory. His history at this course isn’t great, but that is why his odds are 20/1. His current play says he should be a favorite and we think he builds on that today.
Sergio Garcia is another golfer we like at 28/1. He has two top-10 finishes and four top-20 finishes in 2016 out of just five events. He placed third in this event two years ago and seems to be making a strong push for a major this year. Look for him to build on that quest this weekend with a strong showing.
