PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Byron Nelson Championship
by Alan Matthews - 5/16/2012
Can’t say I am sad in the least to see the 2012 Players Championship in the rear-view mirror. The Players is always a weird tournament to handicap because it seems to be all-or-nothing for many top players, some of whom simply don’t like the layout much -- Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods to name three. But it was a terrible week for my props and winner predictions.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: The Players Championship
by Alan Matthews - 5/9/2012
Even though the Players Championship isn’t even half as old as any of golf’s true four major championships, pretty much everyone refers to this tournament as the “fifth major” on Tour. And The Players Championship has two things no other event has: the iconic 17th island green – probably the most famous hole in the world but one which actually most players hate because they think it’s a gimmick that penalizes even a slightly awry shot – and the richest purse on Tour.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: The Players Championship Props
by Alan Matthews - 5/8/2012
It’s the PGA Tour’s “fifth major” this week as the pros visit TPC Sawgrass outside of Jacksonville, Fla., for the big-money Players Championship. I will have my usual weekly preview projecting the winner (and top American finisher) for readers on Wednesday, but because this is such a big tournament there are a near majors-level amount of props to bet. So let’s take a look at a handful that I like.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Wells Fargo Championship
by Alan Matthews - 5/2/2012
Sorry, I have pat myself on the back before I preview this week’s PGA Tour stop at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte for the Wells Fargo Championship. Last week at the Zurich Open of New Orleans, this is what I concluded with under my picks section: “My choice is (Jason) Dufner at 22/1. The guy has too much talent to not win sooner rather than later. Plus, he has finished in the Top 10 in the past three years here, including that T3 a year ago. Dufner is eighth in the all-around ranking this year.”
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: RBC Heritage Betting
by Alan Matthews - 4/11/2012
It’s always interesting to see which players compete in a PGA Tour event the week after a major – most times the very big names like Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson don’t. And that’s mostly the case for this week’s tour stop at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head for the RBC Heritage.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Shell Houston Open
by Alan Matthews - 3/28/2012
I have to say I am rather sad to see the PGA Tour’s Florida Swing end. After not being able to pick a winner in the first three months of the season out west, I was able to get Rory McIlroy winning the Honda Classic at PGA National and then last week Tiger Woods winning Arnold Palmer’s tournament at Bay Hill. Not that I can exactly pat myself on the back for picking the two best players in the world to win an event!
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Arnold Palmer Invitational
by Alan Matthews - 3/20/2012
Back before Thanksgiving 2009, it wasn’t uncommon for a betting favorite to win a PGA Tour event. That’s because any event in which Tiger Woods was entered, he was the favorite. And, of course, the pre-scandal Tiger was usually money in the bank.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Transitions Championship
by Alan Matthews - 3/14/2012
It goes without saying that if I pick a player to win a tournament, it’s always good to back up your bet by wagering on said player to at least finish in the Top 10. We all know how hard it is to win on the PGA Tour – just ask Tiger Woods. I mention this because I went with Matt Kuchar as my best “value” last week at the WGC-Cadillac at Doral. Kuchar didn’t win but certainly played well with a T8, so if you took him to finish in the Top 10 as a backup wager you still came out ahead. Consider that strategy going forward as most tournaments offer Top-10 props on the big-name players.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: WGC-Cadillac Championship
by Alan Matthews - 3/7/2012
See, I told you that all it took was for the PGA Tour to get to the Sunshine State for me to pick my first winner of 2012! Last week at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Rory McIlroy won the Honda Classic, his first victory in the States since last year’s U.S. Open. It was a thrilling Sunday, and we have seen more than a few of those already this year. Tiger Woods went on a pre-2009 Tiger-like tear on the final 18, finishing birdie-eagle for a 62, the lowest final round of his career.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: The Honda Classic
by Alan Matthews - 2/29/2012
For last week’s WGC-Match Play, I picked American Bubba Watson, the No. 5 seed in the Hogan Bracket. Unfortunately, he lost in the Round of 32 to Matt Kuchar, 4&3. So who won the event? American Hunter Mahan, the No. 6 seed in the Hogan Bracket. He bested Rory McIlroy in the final – I couldn’t tell you the difference between Watson and Mahan if they were standing together on the tee, but they feel like the same player, you know?
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship
by Alan Matthews - 2/21/2012
If you ask 100 devoted golf fans, 95 or so will say the Masters is their favorite tournament. Hard to argue, considering it’s the Super Bowl of the sport, has the most tradition of any tournament (at least in the U.S.) and it heralds the start of spring in America. The U.S. Open is always a can’t-miss event as well, what with the usual difficulty of those courses turning the pros into duffers like you and I.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am
by Alan Matthews - 2/8/2012
Well, not great results on my value picks for last week’s Waste Management Open outside Phoenix. I thought young Rickie Fowler had a great shot at his first victory and he started solidly with a pair of 69s but would finish at 26th. My value choice at long odds (+4200) was Y.E. Yang. Oops! He missed the cut after a pair of 73s.

Well, it appears I am getting closer to nailing a winner on the PGA Tour this year. After a slow start, my guys are at least starting to show up on the leaderboard. Last week at Torrey Pines my top value pick was Camilo Villegas, and he was among the leaders after a first-round 65. Unfortunately, he didn’t break 70 again and finished 22nd.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Farmers Insurance Open
by Alan Matthews - 1/25/2012
If you are a golf bettor, this weekend is easily the best of the early season so far. That’s because the top European Tour event thus far is in the Middle East for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, while the PGA Tour has a good field at historic Torrey Pines in San Diego for the Farmers Insurance Open.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Humana Challenge
by Alan Matthews - 1/18/2012
Let’s go with the good news first. For last week’s Sony Open, the final PGA Tour stop in Hawaii, I recommended three longer shots to take a look at: defending champion Mark Wilson at +4000, Steve Marino at +3500 and Charles Howell III at +2000.
PGA Tour Golf Odds and Predictions: Sony Open in Hawaii
by Alan Matthews - 1/11/2012
The PGA Tour season teed off last week at the winners-only Hyundai Tournament of Champions and my best “value” pick was David Toms at 20/1. And why not? Toms was coming off his best season in years and had four Top-10s in seven previous appearances at that tournament, both the most of any player in the field.
PGA Tour Odds and Predictions: Hyundai Tournament of Champions
by Alan Matthews - 1/4/2012
As most of the United States shivers through wintry conditions, the PGA Tour pros will be teeing it off this weekend in the season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions in gorgeous Hawaii. This Friday-Monday winners-only tournament is held at Plantation Course at Kapalua on Maui. This is the first scheduled Monday finish for this tournament.
Golf Odds and Betting Predictions: Dubai World Championship
by Alan Matthews - 12/5/2011
Hopefully I made you a bit of money this season on the golf circuit – I nailed a few winners for 2011. However, golf betting always is a challenge. I will return for 2012, starting with the PGA Tour’s season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Jan. 5, but this week’s Dubai World Championship on the European Tour is the final preview of the year and the season-ender on that Tour.
PGA Tour Odds and Predictions: The Presidents Cup
by Alan Matthews - 11/15/2011
The Presidents Cup, which tees off Thursday morning (Wednesday night U.S. time) at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia, is in many ways like the Ryder Cup: the Presidents Cup is also a team event pitting the United States against an international contingent, the scoring and competitive setup are much the same and it is staged every other year.
PGA Tour Odds and Predictions: WGC-HSBC Champions
by Alan Matthews - 11/2/2011
To most casual U.S. golf bettors, this week’s World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions event at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai will be it for 2011 in terms of individual tournament competition – the team-oriented Presidents’ Cup in two weeks might draw some interest. But in terms of stroke play events, we hit the “silly season” on the PGA Tour after this weekend. And there are at least a few interesting events on that schedule I will preview (plus any key strong-field Euro events remaining).
