The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am will be taking place this weekend, so without further ado, here are the odds of the five golfers with the best chances.
1) Dustin Johnson (6/1)
He isn’t off to the best start this year, with a fourth-place finish and also one that saw him in 30th. But there is plenty of time to turn it around, and we shall see how things go for him early on. This isn’t a course where Johnson has found past success, so this year would be a first for him if he was able to do what they say in Field of Dreams and “Go the Distance”.
Johnson has the best odds, so he is the betting favorite (obviously), but count your chips before you wager them.
2) Jason Day (10/1)
With two finishes inside of the top-five this year, he has been playing decently, but he has yet to have either a win or a top-three finish in one of the events he’s played. Each of the last two years when Day played here, good things happened. He tied for fifth in 2017, and then moved up a few spots into a second-place tie a year ago. This is a course where he has had success, and you would be wise to bet on him to do it again in 2019.
3) Jordan Spieth (20/1)
2019 has been a joke for Jordan Spieth so far—getting cut in Hawaii and finishing outside of the top-34 finishers in the other two events he has taken part in is not a good start. He did, however, win at Pebble Beach in 2017, so he has shown the capability of being great. The young star has to hope that he can get out of his slump before his 2019 season is down the drain. Avoid all Spieth bets.
4) Tommy Fleetwood (25/1)
The 28-year-old Englishman has never won a PGA Tour event, as all of his wins have come in international events and friendlies. He has yet to take part in an event in 2019, so he should be refreshed and ready to go. He made headlines with his second-place finish at the US Open last year, as he did with his fourth-place finishes in New Orleans, and at the Honda Classic.
A low wager could end with a big payout on the long-shot Fleetwood.
5) Matt Kuchar (25/1)
Every tournament we preview, there’s always a 40-something year-old golfer who sneaks into the top five. Kuchar has already won two events this year and is looking extremely impressive. He won the Sony Open and the Mayakoba Golf Classic. He had not won any majors in quite a long time, and now he’s looking for a third win in under six weeks.
Kuchar has a good chance, so if you’re looking to cash in, bet on him!
