Northern Trust 2019 Betting Tips

Another extremely close one last week in the Wyndham Championship.

We had the 60/1 Rory Sabbatini to win & E/W. Rory ended up coming 1 stroke out of the top 5, with a 6th place finish.

Rory shot a 63 to open the tournament but couldn’t keep it up. He still threw in impressive performances with a 68-66-67 final 3 rounds but it wasn’t enough. That bogey in the 17th hole was just crushing.

It’s Fedex Cup Playoff time now on the PGA Tour, and we turn our attention to the Northern Trust. With the change in the playoffs it’s big money time and I think we’ll see a lot of motivated golfers.

Last years winner at the Northern Trust was Bryson DeChambeau at 100/1 odds. However they change courses. It’s at Liberty National this week so course form not really a factor. The golfers love the greens here.

Northern Trust 2019 Betting Tips:

Jon Rahm is someone who I was close to picking here. I think he will be there or thereabouts at the end. In saying that, 16/1 just is not worth it in my opinion.

Collin Morikawa: 50/1. 1/4u to win & E/W. Didn’t quite do it at the Wyndham but he finished strong and I think can bring the fire this week. His GIR will be a factor here. Honestly the price is so good for Morikawa here that I’m extremely tempted to back him for 1/2u.

Patrick Cantlay: 22/1. 1/8u to win & E/W. This is one where I personally don’t like it, but all the factors make it worth a bet. The metrics I expect will be a factor in this course support him. His form isn’t too bad at the moment. The price is just right. Feel obligated to have a small bet on him here.

Sepp Straka: 225/1. 1/8u to win & E/W. His ball striking ability might be a factor here. His form is excellent and for the first three rounds for the Wyndham, he was hanging in there. Top 5 is a possibility.

That’s all I’ve got this week. If you’re looking for more action might be worth chucking Rahm in there. I’ve seen some theories about Tiger this week and saying with the weather, it will suit him. Possible but with Tiger these days, I find I am trying to find reasons to back him simply because it’s Tiger.

At 50/1 I wanted to back Spieth too but it was a similar thing – trying to find reasons to back him, rather than the reasons jumping out at me. For some reason I feel like he may pull off a big one here but I can’t advise it.
