The Best Plays on the Golf Odds this Weekend: Whole Tournament Matchups
-145 Dustin Johnson over Patrick Cantlay
Dustin Johnson loves playing here and at the Riviera course, which is coming up. DJ has four Top-2 finishes at Pebble Beach since 2014 and is ranked fifth in the world. He is feeling it, and if you take a shot with him, you’ll feel the extra weight in your pocket.
-120 Jordan Spieth over Daniel Berger
Daniel Berger has been shaky for over a year now and while Spieth is no longer in his No. 1 of the form, he has a very good history at Pebble Beach. I’m looking for big things this season from the 2015 Fed Ex Cup champion and think this is the tournament where things start to take shape for him.
-125 Scott Stallings over Patrick Rodgers
The only reason I am taking Scott Stalling here is because of his history at Pebble Beach. Seriously, look at this guy. In the past three seasons, Stallings has finished 3rd, 7th, and 14th at one of the world’s most gorgeous courses. Go with Stallings and the history.
The Best Plays on the Golf Odds this Weekend: Top 20 Picks
I’ve got some plus moneyline plays for the Top 20 in golf this weekend. Playing at Pebble Beach can be a difficult task with the weather and the design of the courses, but here are a few guys who play well at Pebble Beach and are worth a shot.
+325 Kevin Streelman
Streelman has four straight Top 20 finishes at this tournament. At better than three times your money this is fantastic value and is one of my favorite plays of any kind this weekend.
+220 Chez Reavie
Reavie is ranked 41st in the world and finished tied for second at Pebble Beach last year, so he might just be a Pebble Beach specialist and is worth a shot.
+180 Max Homa
Homa has made six straight cuts and has two straight Top 10 finishes. He also finished in the Top 10 at Pebble last season so you have two things going for you; somebody that is in a decent groove, and who has shown an ability to play on the course.
+105 Russell Knox
This pick is mostly about a guy that is playing well overall as Knox has two straight Top 15 finishes at Pebble Beach and is 16th on tour in scoring average.
Pebble Beach Pro-Am Odds to Win: Jason Day
Top 10 +205
Top 5 +450
Australian Jason Day is well overdue for a bustout tournament and this may be the course where he gets it done. Day has five straight Top 11 finishes at Pebble Beach, including four of them in the top 5. I’ve got a good feeling Day pulls his way through this weekend, but if he doesn’t, make sure to spread out your bets a little bit with the advice above.
