Travelers Championship Picks
The 2016 Travelers Championship tees off on Thursday morning. Which golfers should you consider wagering on this weekend?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Bubba Watson is favored to win this tournament, as he has 12/1 odds. Other short odds to prevail are Branden Grace and Brooks Koepka, who have 16/1 odds. The Travelers Championship takes place on Thursday-Sunday from TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.
Branden Grace is coming off a great showing at the PGA Championship and I think he can build off of it this weekend. He already has two wins this year and a total of eight top-10 finishes. Grace should be a top contender this week with a weak field coming off the final major.
Zach Johnson has 22/1 odds to win this golf tournament. With the field not being so cut-throat, we think he has a chance to make a strong run at the win. He has made the cut in nine straight tournaments, including four top-20 showings in his last five tournaments. He has yet to win this year, but finished sixth at this tournament a year ago.
Padraig Harrington is listed with 66/1 odds to win this week. He hasn’t made a great splash in the golf world for a while, but he is seeing a nice run lately. He has made the cut in five straight, including a top-10 finish. He was 13th at last week’s PGA Championship and should be able to build on that. He is a long shot, but worth some considering if you are looking for a big payout.
