Golf Odds and Predictions: Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open
by Alan Matthews - 10/3/2012
Before I preview this week’s PGA Tour Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, which has to be the longest tournament name in pro sports history, let’s look back at a very successful Ryder Cup if you followed my advice. Needless to say, the United States should have beaten Europe, leading 10-4 at one point late Saturday and 10-6 entering Sunday’s final singles. But the Europeans staged the biggest comeback in the event’s history – U.S. rallied from a similar deficit in 1999 but that was on home soil – to win 14.5-13.5 and retain the Cup.

Let me first say that I will be previewing all of the PGA Tour’s Fall Series tournaments and any other relevant big golf tournaments through the winter, but to the casual golf fan and bettor the season ends this weekend with the 39th Ryder Cup. The biennial competition between players from the United States and Europe visits Medinah Country Club outside Chicago for the first time.

I previewed this weekend’s FedEx Cup-ending Tour Championship last week at Doc’s, going with Phil Mickelson to take the tournament and the $10 million grand prize. Today, let’s look at some various Bovada props on the final big-time event on the PGA Tour for 2012 (Ryder Cup isn’t a Tour event).
PGA Golf Odds and Predictions: The Tour Championship
by Alan Matthews - 9/14/2012
The PGA Tour’s playoffs, the FedEx Cup, wrap up next weekend at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta with the Tour Championship. A cool $10 million grand prize is awarded to the winner of the FedEx Cup, and all 30 players in the field mathematically have a shot at winning the Cup, although, realistically, only a handful do.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: BMW Championship
by Alan Matthews - 9/5/2012
Not that Rory McIlroy likely gives a darn about what I think, but I am now squarely back in the McIlroy camp in terms of believing he is the future superstar on the PGA Tour. That seemed obvious after last year’s U.S. Open victory, a win at the Honda Classic back in March and taking over the world No. 1 ranking this spring.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Deutsche Bank Championship
by Alan Matthews - 8/29/2012
The PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup Playoffs have been shaven down from the Top 125 in the points to Top 100 for this week’s second postseason event, the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. However, don’t go channel surfing on Thursday morning looking for this tournament. It’s a Friday-Monday event designed to end on Labor Day. The only other scheduled Friday-Monday event on Tour is the season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.
2012 PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: The Barclays
by Alan Matthews - 8/22/2012
Pretty good results in my Wyndham Championship preview last week. I thought Sergio Garcia would contend but was still a bit surprised that he won – I would have jumped all over a Top-10 prop on El Nino but Bovada didn’t offer one. That victory essentially locked up a European Ryder Cup spot for Garcia. I picked Carl Pettersson to finish in the Top 10 (and win) and he finished T4. Also hit on a Top 10 for Jason Dufner and non-Top-10 finishes for Charl Schwartzel and Brandt Snedeker.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Wyndham Championship
by Alan Matthews - 8/15/2012
It’s a bit of a letdown week on the PGA Tour following Rory McIlroy’s dominating performance over the weekend at the PGA Championship that I certainly never saw coming. In fact, this weekend’s Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., is a lot like Week 17 in the NFL season.
Golf Odds and Predictions: 2012 PGA Championship Preview and Picks
by Alan Matthews - 8/8/2012
The PGA Championship is called “Glory’s Last Shot” because it’s the final major championship of the golf season. And, unfortunately for the tournament, it’s always considered the weak sister of the four. The only time it won’t be overshadowed by the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open is if a golfer is going for the Grand Slam at the PGA. That’s certainly not the case this year with three different winners of the first three majors. In addition, the PGA is overshadowed even more this season because of the Olympics, not to mention the first full slate of NFL Preseason games on Thursday night.

It’s a major championship week in golf, so that means it’s a two-story preview week for the 94th PGA Championship, held for the first time at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Resort in South Carolina. Let’s take a look at some of the hundreds of prop options at Bovada for the final major of the 2012 season.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational
by Alan Matthews - 8/1/2012
For most casual golf fans and bettors, this week’s World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron begins about a two-month exciting stretch that essentially ends the PGA Tour season. Following this tournament, you have the PGA Championship next week, then a middling Tour stop before the four-event FedEx Cup playoffs and then the Ryder Cup. It’s like the stretch run of baseball season.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: 2012 RBC Canadian Open
by Alan Matthews - 7/25/2012
Well, I would like to say that I nailed Ernie Els to win the Open Championship last week, but in all honestly Els didn’t win the tournament so much as Adam Scott lost it. I did think about picking Els as the best value at 33/1, mentioning in the preview that I did a double-take on the Big Easy because of his past success at Royal Lytham. Els’ victory, his fourth major championship, ended a streak of nine straight first-time major winners.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: John Deere Classic
by Alan Matthews - 7/10/2012
First off, I want to defend myself for my selections last week for the Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia. It was a tough tournament to call because it was only the third annual event and the course changed radically after Year 1 to Year 2. I follow golf pretty intently, but I couldn’t pick Sunday’s Greenbrier winner Ted Potter Jr. out of a lineup. Ditto for runner-up Troy Kelly, third-place Charlie Beljan, fifth-place Daniel Summerhays … well, you get my drift. It was just one of those weeks on Tour.

While I didn’t have Tiger Woods winning his Tour-leading third PGA tournament of the season last week at his AT&T National event at Congressional, there were some good results in Top-10 picks. I had Woods (-250), Hunter Mahan (even-money) and Bo Van Pelt (+275) to all finish inside the Top 10 and they did. Van Pelt finished runner-up to Tiger by two shots. I also took Dustin Johnson (-175) to finish outside the Top 10 and he did. I did miss on Jim Furyk finishing in the Top 10 and Nick Watney and Adam Scott finishing outside it. My pick to win was Martin Laird, who was a solid 11th.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Travelers Championship
by Alan Matthews - 6/20/2012
Well, I didn’t pick Webb Simpson as the winner of last week’s US Open, but then again I’m guessing pretty much no one did. Otherwise, it was a pretty solid week. Tiger looked like he would be a lock to finish in the Top 10 after sharing the lead heading into Saturday, but he struggled on the weekend and finished outside of that group.
WagerWeb: PGA Tour Travelers Championship Prop Bets
by David Schwab - 6/20/2012
This week the PGA Tour heads to the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., for the Travelers Championship. While WagerWeb sportsbook has you covered with a complete set of odds for an expanded list of contenders to win this week’s event as well as odds for a number of head-to-head matchups, it also provides a couple of interesting prop bets to add a bit of extra action to this week’s tournament.
2012 US Open Golf Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 6/13/2012
In my opinion, the most interesting golf tournament of the year arrives on Thursday when the 2012 US Open, version No. 112, returns to the Olympic Club in San Francisco for the first time since 1998. While some golf fans don’t pay much attention until the weekend of big tournaments, if you are any sort of true fan, tune in Thursday and Friday simply because these are two of the threesomes going off together: Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson-Bubba Watson and Luke Donald-Rory McIlroy-Lee Westwood.

You can look for an overall preview of this week’s US Open at Olympic in San Francisco here at Doc’s Sports on Wednesday, but today let’s take a look at some of the many prop options available at Bovada for the second major of the season.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: FedEx St. Jude Classic
by Alan Matthews - 6/6/2012
Can we go ahead and just forget about last week’s Memorial Tournament? I not only didn’t like Tiger Woods to win last week, his second victory on Tour this year (yeah, he’s about back, although Tiger will never be the dominant force he was), but I thought he would finish outside the Top 10 after three below-average tournaments heading in. I liked Phil Mickelson to finish inside the Top 10 despite not often playing well at the Memorial, but he blew up with a first-round 79 and then took his clubs and went home (which is not cool to the fans who bought tickets to see him on Friday).

It was hit-and-miss last week at the PGA Tour’s stop at Colonial. Zach Johnson was the 14/1 favorite at Bovada and won the tournament. I wrote that “Johnson should be the favorite as no one has played Colonial as well as Johnson the past three years. In that stretch, all 12 of his rounds have been in the 60s, including five of 65 or better, for an average of 66.58. He won in 2010, finished fourth last year and T9 in 2009. Colonial has narrow fairways, which suits the short but accurate Johnson off the tee.”
