Shell Houston Open Free Picks
HUMBLE, TX (TheSpread) – The 2015 Shell Houston Open begins action later today. Here are some golfers we think you should wager on for the weekend.
According to the latest oddsmakers, Jordan Spieth is the favorite to win this tournament, as he has 7/1 odds. Other short odds to win are Jimmy Walker (11/1), Matt Kuchar (14/1) and Patrick Reed (14/1). This tournament will take place Thursday-Sunday from the Golf Club of Houston.
Jordan Spieth is favored for a reason, he has been very strong as of late. We think he is a smart play this weekend as he has placed in the top 5 in six of his last 10 tournaments, including a runner-up finish last week. He has had a knack for winning as of late and could do it again this weekend.
Rickie Fowler has been off to a bit of a slow start to 2015 after a tremendous 2014 run. However, that can work for you this weekend. He has 22/1 odds due to his poor play, but with The Masters next week, we expect Rickie to look strong this weekend. He was sixth in this tournament a year ago and was a top-10 player in all four majors a year ago. Look for Fowler to contend this weekend.
Martin Kaymer could be a dark horse this weekend. He has 50/1 odds to win this week, but he has had a good 2015 thus far with a pair of top-5 finishes. He is coming off a missed cut last week, but he has followed up his last two missed cuts with a top-10 finish in his next tournament. Look for Kaymer to contend this weekend and possibly get you a big payday.
