Welcome to the Awesemo Expert Golf Betting Picks for the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Three rounds have been completed and scores are trending on being the best in the history of the event. Jon Rahm and Cam Smith are making this out to be a two-person race. They are five clear of Daniel Berger and six clear of the rest of the chasing pack. This presents a very unique betting board, with Rahm, the heavy favorite, currently sitting at -165 to win the event. Smith comes in as the slight underdog, coming in at +165. Both numbers are found on DraftKings.
However, last time out in a professional golf event at the Hero World Open, Collin Morikawa, the second-best player in the world, gave up a five-shot within the first nine holes. Could that happen again here this week? It’s certainly possible, so, we look down the board and find the players best suited to catch the two in the lead if they are to falter.
PGA Odds and Betting Picks: Tournament of Champions
Top Candidate: Daniel Berger — 50-1
One thing that Berger has going for him heading into the final round is that he leads the field in strokes gained tee to green through three rounds. He’s lost over a stroke and a half with the putter, something he doesn’t typically do when he’s in form. So not only is he the closest competitor of the three, but if his putter heats up, he should be in the best position in terms of game to do so as well.
Value: Patrick Cantlay — 80-1
In each of the last two rounds, either his putter or his approach game has failed him. But, he’s remained within a stone’s throw of first even through that tough play. It likely will take another course record of 61, or thereabouts for anyone that’s -20 or worse, but of the golfers sitting at that price, Cantlay is the best chance at getting there. Even if Justin Thomas backs up his 61 with another 61, it would only be good enough to get to -29, which likely won’t be good enough to catch Rahm nor Smith.
Deep Shot: Sungjae Im– 130-1
Nothing in his stats are flashy this week, at least on the surface, gaining mildly across the board. But a deeper look shows that Im has had a round in each of the three that has either been a spike putter, spike iron play, or spike driver day in each of the last three. Put it all together, and he could come close to the 61 or 62 number, which would at least put a bit of pressure on the two leaders if he does post that number.
