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.

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.

2022 World Golf Championship Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on March 22, 2022

March is known for its tournament brackets and single-elimination head-to-heads, and it’s not just for college basketball. The golf world takes a pause from its usual format to play its own tournament bracket at the 2022 World Golf Championship.

It’s 64 of the world’s top players going head-to-head at the Austin Country Club, just 83 miles up the road from the AT&T Center in San Antonio, where a pair of Sweet 16 games will be played. And just as with all of the college basketball games this weekend, golf has its favorites, its underdogs, and its Cinderellas.

Favorites to Win 2022 World Golf Championship

  • Jon Rahm (+1400)
  • Justin Thomas (+1600)
  • Viktor Hovland (+1800)
  • Collin Morikawa (+2000)
  • Scottie Scheffler (+2000)
  • Patrick Cantlay (+2200)
  • Dustin Johnson (+2200)
  • Xander Schauffele (+2500)
  • Billy Horschel (+2800)
  • Daniel Berger (+2800)
  • Jordan Spieth (+2800)

Tournament Format

Beginning on Wednesday and going through Friday, the field of 64 is split into 16 seeded groups of four golfers each. And over those three days, each player in the group will play a match against each of the other three players. One point is awarded for a match win, and a half-point is awarded for a match tie.

The top point getter in each group advances to the single-elimination round of 16, to be played Saturday morning, with the quarterfinals to be played Saturday afternoon. Sunday morning is the semifinals, and by Sunday evening, we will have a 2022 World Golf Championship champion.

Best Bets to Win

Jon Rahm is the best golfer in the world, and he’s also done well at this event. In 2018 he was the runner-up here in Austin, and in 2019 he finished fifth.

Billy Horschel is the defending champion, and last year when he won, he was paying +8000. He’s down to +2800 this year, but that’s still good value for a golfer who does well on this course and in this format.

Scottie Scheffler (+2000) was the runner-up to Horschel in 2021, so he, too, feels comfortable on this course and in this format. He also has the added feature of being the hottest golfer in the world right now. Scheffler was the winner at the Phoenix Open and Arnold Palmer Invitational and sandwiched a T7 at The Genesis between those two victories.

Sergio Garcia has never won this event, but he is terrific in match play. He’s made it to at least the round of 16 nine times at Austin, including the quarterfinals a year ago, making his +5000 payday an attractive flier.

Also at +5000 is Kevin Kisner, who just finished fourth at The PLAYERS. He also had a T3 at the Sony Open, but most importantly, he finished second at this event in 2018 and then won it in 2019.
