Safeway Open Odds & Betting Preview

In the wake of the American squad hoisting yet another Presidents Cup, the 2017-18 PGA Tour season starts fresh this weekend with the first event, the Safeway Open, getting underway at Silverado Resort & Spa in Napa, California.

At Bovada, Tony Finau and Phil Mickelson are the +1600 co-favorites to win the hardware. Webb Simpson (+1800), Zach Johnson (+2500), Bill Haas (+2800), Brendan Steele (+2800), Kevin Na (+2800), Emiliano Grillo (+2800), Ryan Moore (+2800) and Keegan Bradley (+3300) have the next best odds to go all the way at the shop.

Last year, Steele closed things out on the final day with three straight birdies to record a one-stroke victory over Patton Kizzire. Steele overcame a four-shot deficit entering Sunday, which was a complete reversal from the 2015 tournament that saw him hold a 54-hole lead but implode on the back nine. The win was Steele’s second career victory and first since the Valero Texas Open in 2011.

With the FedExCup playoffs recently concluding, golf bettors need to prepare for a stretch that perenially lacks some of the biggest names on the tour. After all, everyone is entitled to vacation time and that obviously translates to professional athletes as well. Four players who made the Tour Championship will be in the field, as Mickelson, Simpson, Finau and Adam Hadwin are set to tee it up in the Golden State.

Getting a good start at the Safeway Open has been key to reaching the Tour Championship in recent years, as Grillo (2015), Sangmoon Bae (2014) and Jimmy Walker (2013) accomplished the feat after winning the first event of the year.
