WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Odds & Betting Preview

One of the most unique tournaments on the PGA Tour gets underway in Texas at the Austin Country Club this weekend when the WGC-Dell Technologies takes center stage in the golfing world.

The field is absolutely loaded, as only four of the top 50 players in the world rankings will be absent from the event. Due to the nature of the WGC-Dell Technologies, only 64 golfers will be participating.

Rory McIlroy is the +650 favorite at Bovada, with Dustin Johnson (+900), Jordan Spieth (+900), Jason Day (+1400), Hideki Matsuyama (+2000), Jon Rahm (+2500), Sergio Garcia (+2800), Patrick Reed (+2800), Paul Casey (+3000) and Justin Thomas (+3300) (+3300) comprising the rest of the top 10.

The championship starts with pool play, with 16 groups of four players playing round-robin matches on Wednesday through Friday. After that, the top 16 seeds play in 16 different groups with one in each group. The remaining 48 men are placed into three pools (seeds 17-32, 33-48 and 49-64). One player is randomly selected from each pool to compete in the group.

All group play matches are limited to 18 holes, with one point awarded for a win and a half-point for a halved match that ends in a tie. Ties for first place in the groups are broken by a sudden-death stroke-play playoff, which begins on the first hole.

The winners advance to a single-elimination March Madness-style bracket on the weekend, with the round of 16 and quarterfinals on Saturday and the semifinals, finals and consolation match set for Sunday.

Day is the defending WGC-Dell Technologies champion — his second win in three years. Day has struggled to find his game this season but finished in a tie for 23rd (2 under par) at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is showing signs of a turnaround before the first major of 2017, the Masters.

Keep an eye on world No. 1 Johnson. DJ hasn’t finished outside of the top five since the first week of February and won both of his last two tournaments at the Genesis Open and the WGC-Mexico. The 32-year-old has had a few weeks off to prepare to tee it up at Augusta so he should be fully rested, and he’s familiar with the course after making the quarterfinals in 2016.
