Tour Championship 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on August 23, 2022

This season in golf has been anything but normal. And as we close the book on the 2021-2022 season with the Tour Championship and the awarding of the FedEx Cup, change to the Tour is coming.

In response to the golfers who have defected to LIV golf and the Saudi Arabian-backed exhibition tour, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are pushing for a series of one-day skilled events spread throughout the PGA calendar. With the golf world focused this week on East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Tour commissioner Jay Monahan is expected to announce the full details later in the week.

As for the golf that’s being played this week, the 30 golfers with a chance to win the Cup will be seeded using Starting Strokes. In this format, adopted in 2019, the field begins with a score based on where they are in the standings.

Favorites to Win Tour Championship

  • Scottie Scheffler (+250)
  • Partick Cantlay (+400)
  • Xander Schauffele (+700)
  • Rory McIlroy (+1100)
  • Will Zalatoris (+1200)
  • Jon Rahm (+1600)
  • Tony Finau (+1800)
  • Sam Burns (+2200)
  • Cameron Smith (+2500)
  • Justin Thomas (+2800)
  • Sungjae Im (+2800)

As the standings leader heading into this week, Scottie Scheffler begins the Tour Championship at 10-under par. That makes him the obvious favorite to win. It should also be noted that in the three previous times this format was used, twice the winner was the golfer who began the tournament in the first place.

Last year’s winner and the defending FedEx Cup champion, Patrick Cantlay, is one of the two previous top-ranked golfers to win. He begins the Tour Championship in second place after winning the BMW last week. He is the first golfer to ever defend one of the FedEx Cup playoff tournaments, and a win this weekend would make him the first ever to defend the Cup.

Tour Championship

The one time someone other than the first-place golfer won the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup, it was Rory McIlroy who began that tournament in fifth place. He begins this week in a tie for sixth place at -4, so he has six strokes to make up on the leader. If anyone can do it, it’s a two-time FedEx Cup champion.

The champion of The Open, Cameron Smith, sat out the BMW because of a sore hip, and that dropped him three spots in the standings. He begins the Tour Championship at -4, tied with McIlroy, and he is rested and ready to tackle East Lake.

If you’re looking for someone with success on the course at East Lake, Xander Schauffele is your guy. He won here in 2017, and he had a low aggregate score in 2020.

BMW Championship 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on August 16, 2022

The FedEx Cup Playoffs head to the second event of three, as the PGA’s best move to Delaware for the BMW Championship at the South Course at Wilmington Country Club.

Never again do we have to refer to Will Zalatoris as the golfer most likely to get his first win. He finally finished atop the leaderboard on Sunday, and now Zalatoris can go about the business of trying to win the Cup.

Of course, the entirety of the Tour’s top players are here, and the BMW Championship will feel as close to a Major as you can get.

Favorites to Win BMW Championship

  • Rory McIlroy (+1000)
  • Jon Rahm (+1200)
  • Will Zalatoris (+1200)
  • Patrick Cantlay (+1400)
  • Scottie Scheffler (+1400)
  • Justin Thomas (+1400)
  • Tony Finau (+1400)
  • Matt Fitzpatrick (+1600)
  • Xander Schauffele (+1800)
  • Colin Morikawa (+2000)

Rory McIlroy was not great last week in Memphis, and he failed to make the cut. But this is still Rory McIlroy, and the course in Wilmington matches his strengths perfectly. He is the BMW Championship favorite, and his status is deserved.

Jon Rahn has been fairly absent for the last couple of weeks, but in the opening round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, he led the field in greens in regulation, and he finished on Sunday with a T5.

Will Zalatoris was clear after his win last week that it’s great to have the monkey off his back, but that one win has not satisfied his hunger. Part of that hunger is fueled by just how close he has come in the major championships this season. The other part is how close he is now to winning the end-of-season prize.

BMW Championship

And don’t sleep on Matt Fitzpatrick even though he’s only eighth on the favorites board. The U.S. Open champion was consistently good at the St. Jude last week, going 68-66-67-68.

Others to Consider at the BMW Championship

He’s no longshot, paying +2500, but Sungjae Im does present some good value when you consider that he was a runner-up twice in the last month, and last week he was 12th.

Max Homa is paying +4500, and he’s largely an afterthought this week. But he won the Wells Fargo in May and was T5 at the Memorial in June. He also got off to a great start last week in Memphis – a first round 66 – before he faded at the end.

A true BMW Championship longshot is Keegan Bradley at +7500. But when it comes to similar courses to Wilmington, he’s played well this year. That includes a T7 at the U.S. Open and a T2 at the Wells Fargo.

Pay Per Head Software

So many reasons right now for independent bookmakers to join forces with a top pay per head software provider. The FedEx Cup Finals are next week, another full slate of NFL preseason games is this week, and the baseball pennant races are closing in on the home stretch.

FedEx St. Jude Championship 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on August 9, 2022

The PGA Tour’s regular season has ended, and we now begin the FedEx Cup Playoffs, which start in Memphis at the St. Jude Championship.

There will be a field of 125 this week; next week at the BMW, there will still be 70 golfers in the hunt, and we’ll be down to 30 when the Tour Championship tees off in Atlanta in two weeks’ time.

It’s the official start of elimination golf, but that actually began some time ago and was highlighted last week by Joohyung Kim winning the Wyndham Championship. He shot a final round 61, got his first ever PGA Tour win, and qualified for the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Favorites to Win FedEx St. Jude Championship

  • Rory McIlroy (+1000)
  • Scottie Scheffler (+1400)
  • Cameron Smith (+1600)
  • Patrick Cantlay (+1600)
  • Justin Thomas (+1800)
  • Xander Schauffele (+1800)
  • Jon Rahm (+2200)
  • Matt Fitzpatrick (+2200)
  • Tony Finau (+2200)
  • Will Zalatoris (+2500)

Rory McIlroy has twice captured the FedEx Cup, and he’s playing for the first time since he finished third at The Open in St. Andrews. He has a pair of top-10 finishes at TPC Southwind and was 12th last year with three straight 66s to finish the tournament.

Leading the FedEx standings is Scottie Scheffler, who has four wins this season, but he hasn’t won since April. Of course, that April win was the Masters, so not too shabby. And he did have a T2 at the U.S. Open.

Cameron Smith is playing for the first time since he lifted the Claret Jug at FedEx St. Jude Championship, and he comes to a course where he shot a 62 last year on his way to a fifth-place finish.

Lower down on the list of FedEx St. Jude Championship favorites is Tony Finau, who won the 3M Open on July 24, then won the Rocket Mortgage Classic on July 31. He’s the hottest golfer on the course, but on this course, he has never done that well. He finished 27th in 2019, 65th in 2020, and 34th in 2021 after a final round 74.

St. Jude Championship

And once again, we are talking about Will Zalatoris, possibly winning the first tournament of his career but now coming off the most tumultuous week of his young career. Last week in the middle of the Wyndham, he fired his caddie, Ryan Gobble. He used his coach, Josh Gregory, on Saturday and Sunday.

Zalatoris called it the “toughest decision I’ve had to make in my golf career.”

The FedEx Cup Playoffs continue next week at the BMW Championship in Wilmington, Delaware, as the field gets down to 70. We’ve also got a full weekend of NFL preseason football and the heating up of the pennant races in Major League Baseball.

Now is the best time for an independent bookmaker to join forces with a top pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com.

Wyndham Championship 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on August 2, 2022

Wyndham Championship is the 46th and final PGA Tour event of the 2021-2022 season. That’s one final event for players who are looking to keep their playing status for next season and one final event for players to get into the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

The Wyndham Championship had proven to be an excellent test in recent years, especially last year when six players all finished 72 holes tied atop the leaderboard. In the six-man playoff that followed, it was Kevin Kisner getting the win.

Favorites to Win Wyndham Championship

  • Sungjae Im (+1400)
  • Shane Lowry (+1600)
  • Will Zalatoris (+1600)
  • Billy Horschel (+2000)
  • Russell Henley (+2200)
  • Webb Simpson (+2200)
  • Corey Conners (+2500)
  • Si Woo Kim (+2500)
  • Adam Scott (+3300)
  • Denny McCarthy (+3300)
  • Joohyung Kim (+3300)
  • Taylor Pendrith (+3300)
  • Tyrrell Hatton (+3300)

Sungjae Im is a deserved favorite. He’s coming off a T2 at the 3M, and in three starts at the Wyndham Championship, he has a pair of top-10s. He’s also been a fast starter here, going as low as 62 in his first round.

Will Zalatoris is still looking for his first victory. He was T6 at the Masters, T4 in New Orleans, second at the PGA, and T2 at the U.S. Open. Surely he can parlay those great finishes in bug events to a win in North Carolina. Of course, we say the same thing every week.

Billy Horschel at +2000 deserves a look because of his history here. He did win at the Memorial this season, but at Sedgefield, he has been brilliant over the years.

His last two starts here are second place and sixth place finishes, and overall he has been in the top-11 four different times. In his career, he has won $1,251,176 just at the Wyndham Championship.

Wyndham Championship

Longer Shots to Consider at Wyndham Championship

J.T. Poston is an excellent play at +4000. He won this event in 2019, and just a month ago, he was T2 at the Travelers and a winner at the John Deere Classic. Two weeks ago, he finished T11 at the 3M Open.

Kevin Kisner, the defending champion, is also paying +4000. He was T6 at the Travelers and T21 at The Open Championship. Along with his win here, he also has three other top-10s, including a third-place finish in 2020.

Davis Riley, all the way down at +5000, was second at the Valspar, T4 in New Orleans, fifth at the Mexico Open, T9 at the Byron Nelson, and T4 at the Charles Schwab.

We are just one week away from the start of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. The NFL preseason kicks off this week with the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. Plus, the baseball pennant races get into full swing now that we’re into August.

3M Open 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on July 19, 2022

The PGA Tour says goodbye to links golf for another season and the scrambling through weather, rough, and pot bunkers that make St. Andrews such a test. This week they say hello to the required long and accurate drives of the 3M Open in Blaine, Minnesota.

This is the fourth installment of this event as a post-Open Championship return to the States, and in each of the previous three years, it has featured longer and more accurate drives than nearly every other PGA Tour event.

Newly crowned Open champion Cameron Smith won’t be here as he celebrates his first ever win. But you will get to see, and possibly wager on, Open participants Hideki Matsuyama, Sungjae Im, and Tony Finau.

Favorites to Win 3M Open

  • Tony Finau (+1400)
  • Hideki Matsuyama (+1600)
  • Sungjae Im (+1600)
  • Maverick McNealy (+2200)
  • Adam Hadwin (+2500)
  • Cam Davis (+2500)
  • Davis Riley (+2500)
  • Sahith Theegala (+2500)
  • Cameron Tringale (+2800)
  • Adam Long (+3300)
  • Chez Reavie (+3300)
  • J.T. Poston (+3300)

Not surprising that the three men at the top of the 3M Open favorites board just played in Scotland. Tony Finau is the favorite, and he’s been in the top-30 in five of his last six starts; and in his final round at St. Andrews, he shot six-under par.

Hideki Matsuyama shot a final round 67 at St. Andrews and is coming back to the States, where he last finished fourth at the U.S. Open. His trip to Scotland wasn’t terribly fruitful, but he has four top-10 finishes in the United States this season.

Sungjae Im finished the Open T81 after missing the cut at both the Scottish Open and the U.S. Open. But right before that, he was T10 at the Memorial, and let’s not forget he was T8 at the Masters.

3M Open 2022 Betting Preview

Longer Shots to Consider at 3M Open

Chris Gotterup (+4000) hasn’t played a lot this season – only six events – but he’s only missed two cuts, and he has a pair of top-10 finishes – T7 at the Puerto Rico Open and T4 at the John Deere Classic in early July.

Cameron Champ (+5000) has missed five straight cuts, including the John Deere Classic a couple of weeks ago. But he was T6 at the Mexico Open, he had that incredible T10 at the Masters, and Champ is the defending champ here at the 3M Open.

Brice Garnett hasn’t won on tour in four years, and he’s missed eight of his ten cuts. But you want to consider him because he’s paying +10000, and he’s played well in the three previous 3M Opens, finishing 16th last year with a final round 68.

Pay Per Head Software

We are down to three PGA Tour events before the FedExCup Playoffs begin. NFL training camps are opening around the league, and Major League Baseball begins its march to October following the All-Star break.

The Open Championship 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on July 13, 2022

It’s The Open Championship, being contested for the 150th time in its storied history. It’s at the Old Course at St. Andrews, the birthplace of golf. What else do you need to know to get excited for this weekend in Scotland?

How about the return of Tiger Woods? Or a field that features former great champions, like Stewart Cink, David Duval, Ernie Els, Shane Lowry, and Phil Mickelson. In fact, a total of 18 former champions under the age of 60 are in the field, 40 of the top 50 on the World Golf Rankings are playing, and seven of the top-10 finishers from last year’s Open are here.

Favorites to win The Open Championship

  • Rory McIlroy (+900)
  • Xander Schauffele (+1400)
  • Jon Rahm (+1600)
  • Scottie Scheffler (+1600)
  • Jordan Spieth (+1600)
  • Matthew Fitzpatrick (+1800)
  • Justin Thomas (+1800)
  • Shane Lowry (+2000)
  • Cameron Smith (+2200)
  • Patrick Cantlay (+2200)
  • Collin Morikawa (+2500)
  • Will Zalatoris (+2500)

Rory McIlroy is the favorite as a past The Open Championship champion and someone with five top-fives in his Open career. Not only is he experienced on links golf courses, he’s coming in playing excellent golf, finishing in the top-10 in five of his last seven starts.

Xander Schauffele is the newest winner of the Scottish Open, following up his win at the Travelers. A third-straight win would be legendary, and especially with it coming at the Old Course in the Open Championship. His best finish in this event was T2 in 2018.

There is also Scottie Scheffler, the reigning Masters champion who finished T2 in the U.S. Open. Matthew Fitzpatrick is the U.S. Open champion, and he just finished T6 at the Scottish Open. Jordan Spieth won this event in 2017, was the runner-up last year, and he just finished T10 at the Scottish Open.

And let’s not overlook the defending champion at The Open Championship, Collin Morikawa, who finished fifth at the Masters this year.

The Open Championship

Tiger Woods at St. Andrews

There is a very realistic chance that this will be the final time a competitive Tiger Woods tees it up at St. Andrews. He’s paying +6500, so just how competitive he’ll be remains to be seen. But he withdrew from the U.S. Open to protect his health for this tournament and this course. He won here in 2000 and 2005.

In the words of Woods, “I want to be able to give it at least one more run at a high level.”

He played at St. Andrews twice this weekend while other golfers played the Scottish Open, and twice he walked all 18 holes. His playing partner on Sunday, Justin Thomas, observed, “[Woods’] swing still looks as good as ever.”

The only real question about Woods at The Open Championship: will his leg hold up?

It is not too late for independent bookmakers to team up with a top pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com and take advantage of the great betting from Scotland this weekend.

Scottish Open 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on July 5, 2022

The golfing world is in Scotland for the Scottish Open 2022, before the eyes of the sports world turn to St. Andrews and the 150th edition of The Open Championship.

But before golf plays its final major of the season, the Renaissance Club hosts the Scottish Open for the fourth time in the tournament’s existence. And in the previous three outings, we have seen some very good scores come from the leaderboard, including a 22-under par from Bernd Wiesberger in 2019.

Favorites to Win the Scottish Open

  • Jon Rahm (+1200)
  • Justin Thomas (+1400)
  • Scottie Scheffler (+1400)
  • Xander Schauffele (+1800)
  • Matt Fitzpatrick (+2000)
  • Collin Morikawa (+2500)
  • Patrick Cantlay (+2500)
  • Cameron Smith (+2800)
  • Sam Burns (+2800)
  • Will Zalatoris (+2800)

This weekend’s tournament features 14 of the top 15 players in the world, and it’s one of the few co-sanctioned events between the PGA Tour and DP World Tour, which contributes to being such a strong field just one week before The Open Championship.

As with most links courses in Scotland, the fairways are nice and wide, meaning that distance off the tee is more important than accuracy off the tee. The number one player in the world over his last 12 rounds in driving distance is Jon Rahm, who, not surprisingly, is the betting favorite here.

Getting close to the pins on approach, however, will prove to be difficult. Bunkers will be a factor, as will greens that feature a number of hills. And when it comes to strokes gained on approach, three of the top five golfers in the world over the last 12 rounds are on this Scottish Open favorites board.

Xander Schauffele is second in the world, Cameron Smith is third, and Sam Burns is fifth.

Recent U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick is also in the mix, and even though his best-ever Open finish was a T20 in 2019, the Englishman is back on his home island, and he has to be considered a top favorite.

Scottish Open

Best Value Plays

A couple of DP World Tour players who you may not be familiar with highlight our best value plays of the weekend.

First is Ryan Fox, paying +4000. The New Zealander currently ranks fourth in the European Tour, and he was just the runner-up last week at the Irish Open, shooting a 64 on Sunday to take home the title.

Aaron Rai at +6600 is also someone worth a closer look. He was the winner at Scottish Open in 2020 on this course, and that was when the weather conditions were less than ideal. And when it comes to strokes gained on par 4’s between 450 and 500 yards – of which there are five on this course – Rai has been the best in the world over his last 12 rounds.

The Scottish Open this week, the British Open next week, and the NFL preseason is now just a month away. Now is the time for independent bookmakers to join forces with a top pay per head software provider like WagerHome.com.

John Deere Classic 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on June 28, 2022

As the golfing world continues its rift between the glitz of the Saudi-back LIV and the competitive golf of the PGA Tour, it’s nice to stop in the Midwest for the 50-year tradition of the John Deere Classic.

There is very little glitz or glamor to be found in Silvis, Illinois, located just a few miles from the Iowa border. This week there are very few of the top golfers in the field as they get ready for The Open Championship in two weeks in Scotland.

But as is also the tradition at the John Deere, there should be lots of birdies and negative numbers. In 2021 the average score was 69.5.

Favorites to Win John Deere Classic

  • Webb Simpson (+1400)
  • Adam Hadwin (+1800)
  • Sahith Theegala (+2500)
  • Charles Howell III (+2800)
  • Denny McCarthy (+2800)
  • Adam Long (+3300)
  • Brendon Todd (+3300)
  • Christiaan Bezuldenhout (+3300)
  • Jason Day (+3300)
  • Maverick McNealy (+3300)
  • Nick Hardy (+3300)
  • Patrick Rodgers (+3300)
  • Scott Stallings (+3300)

Webb Simpson continues to work his way back from an injured neck, and last week at the Travelers Championship, he almost made it happen. He shot 64-69-66-71, dropping to T13 because of his final round struggles.

He’s the best golfer in this field, and don’t be deterred by his lack of wins in 2022. He is almost ready to break out.

Speaking of breaking out, keep an eye on rookie Sahith Theegala. He now has 25 career events under his belt and has finished in the top 20 eight times, with a career-best T2 coming last week at the Travelers.

He also began the month of June with a T5 at the Memorial, and he is squarely in the mix to win the PGA Tour’s Rookie of the Year.

As you can see from the rest of the numbers on the top golfers in the field, with The Open Championship looming, this John Deere Classic field is wide open.

Longer Shots Worth a Look at John Deere Classic

Steve Stricker (+5000) played his best golf in previous years, but at the John Deere Classic, his best golf was often the very best in the field.

He won the John Deere Classic three straight times from 2009 to 2011, and he’s been in the top 10 in eight of 18 career starts at this event. This is his first start at any event in 11 months.

Christopher Gotterup (+8000) has been a birdie machine this season. The only problem is his consistency, which has kept him from doing any real leaderboard damage.

But he was T7 at the Puerto Rico Open and a T43 at the U.S. Open, which included a 69 in the second round, which showed just how good he could be.

Travelers

Justin Thomas won the PGA Championship in 2022, and he has also had some other close calls along the way. Thomas is in the mix at the Travelers as well, with odds set right behind the biggest names.

Not only are there some pretty clear betting favorites, but there are a ton of other golfers in the mix this weekend as well.

US Open 2022 Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on June 14, 2022

When watching Phil Mickelson speak to the press on Monday, in the run up to the US Open 2022, last week’s words from Rory McIlroy were echoing through the room.

“Any decision that you make in your life that’s purely for money usually doesn’t end up going the right way. Money is a deciding factor in a lot of things in this world, but if it’s purely for money, it never seems to go the way you want it.”

Instead of answering questions about his quest to win the one major that has eluded him, Mickelson is answering questions about joining the Saudi Arabian-financed LIV.

And that will be the case for the dozen players who are at US Open 2022 this week, trying to win the top prize of the USGA, after spurning the PGA Tour for the lesser events of the LIV, but with bigger paydays.

Favorites to Win US Open 2022

  • Rory McIlroy (+1000)
  • Justin Thomas (+1100)
  • Scottie Scheffler (+1200)
  • Jon Rahm (+1400)
  • Cameron Smith (+1800)
  • Jordan Spieth (+2200)

Last year Jon Rahm was the favorite to win the US Open, and he did. So don’t shy away from Rory McIlroy because he’s the US Open 2022 favorite. He has the shortest odds, but if he wins, he wins.

And when he gets hot, he often stays hot. He was second at the Masters, eighth at the PGA, and he just won the Canadian Open.

Speaking of guys playing pretty good golf, how about Justin Thomas, the winner of the PGA Championship four weeks ago. He was also T8 at the Masters and third at last week’s Canadian Open.

Speaking of more guys playing pretty good golf, how about Scottie Scheffler, who has a commanding lead in the FedExCup Standings. The Masters champion has four wins this season, plus a second-place finish three weeks ago at the Charles Schwab, and he was T7 at last year’s US Open.

Best Value Bets

Billy Horschel is paying +4500 even though he just won the Memorial two weeks ago.

He was also a second-place finisher at the Zurich Classic in April. At the Arnold Palmer Invitational back in March, he finished T2. His best effort in the US Open was a T4 in 2013.

Justin Rose at +5000 at the US Open 2022 and is also worth a look. He finished the Canadian Open with a final round 60, and that included three bogeys.

Imagine what could have been. Not only is coming off a near historic round, he is a past US Open winner.
