Another week, another golf tournament! This week, we have the Waste Management Open. So, do your part, and WASTE (ba dum tsss) no time and place your bets! More below.
1) Jon Rahm (7/1)
The 24-year-old has finished inside of the top-10 on three occasions already in 2019, and is hoping to finally crack the top five. He tied for fifth at the Farmers Insurance Open in his last appearance, and finishing higher could be even better. He tied for fifth at this venue in 2015, which is the highest he has ever finished here.
Rahm is hoping to continue his strong 2019 beginning, which has him at #28 in the FedExCup ranking. A finish in the top four could easily happen today.
2) Justin Thomas (9/1)
He has had two tremendous years in a row, and Thomas is just now in his prime. He has finished inside of the top-13 in the FedExCup rankings for three years in a row, including being #1 in 2017 and #7 last season. With a third-place finish at the Sentry Tournament of Champions to his name this year, he is currently #22, but there is a lot of time to catch up.
A great bet for this tournament that you could make would be FOR Justin Thomas. He is going to do better than Jon Rahm, and you’d be wise to bet big on him.
3) Hideki Matsuyama (12/1)
This is the venue where Matsuyama has made his living during his six prior years on the PGA Tour. The 26-year-old won here in back-to-back years, from 2016-17, and finished tied for second in 2015. This is the place where the magic happens, you can bet that he is going to come out swinging from the opening hole. His third-place finish at the Farmers Insurance Open in his last time on the green is already his best finish in two years, as he never finished better than fourth last year.
Matsuyama is only #41 in the FedExCup rankings right now, but when this one is over, we’ll be seeing something different.
4) Tony Finau (14/1)
The 29-year-old has never found his best success here, but the last few years on the green have been kinder to him than any other period of his career. Finau finished in second place at the World Golf Championships and currently sits at #14 in the FedExCup rankings. His only career victory came at the Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach in 2016, but he’s hoping that 2019 could be the year he shakes off the slack, and gets back into the win column.
Finau is a bet to make if you’re feeling risky, and want to win big on a small wager.
