Expert PGA Betting Picks: WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

Look, predicting a pre-tournament winner in golf isn’t easy. While it’s true sports bettors can find fantastic value, it’s incredibly frustrating when one of your picks doesn’t even make the cut. That’s why I’m here to help.

Every week I’ll highlight three golfers who have a good chance to win the hardware for the upcoming weekend. This week it’s the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Brooks Koepka (+1800)

If you didn’t know who Koepka was prior to his first major win at the U.S. Open, you definitely know who he is now. The American, who followed up that impressive performance with a T-6 at the Open Championship, is climbing into the upper echelon of the PGA Tour and oddsmakers have taken notice, tabbing him with the fifth-best odds on the board.

Koepka can bomb it with the best of them off the tee – an important skill to have at this huge track. He’s performed well at Firestone in the past, notching a T-6 in his debut in 2015. Until his hot streak fades, keep riding the 27-year-old.

Justin Rose (+2500)

Rose has been somewhat off the grid since his sudden-death loss to Sergio Garcia at the Masters, but don’t sleep on him for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in a loaded field. The Englishman loves playing at the course, as he’s notched three T-5 finishes in his previous four starts at Firestone.

Rose has a penchant for coming up big (or at least being in the mix come Sunday) on the biggest stages, and World Golf Championship events definitely count for that. Take the +2500 price and run.

Charley Hoffman (+5500)

You have to look way down the list to find Hoffman at +5500, but that’s a ridiculous price for one of the (quietly) hottest golfers on the PGA Tour. Hoffman hasn’t broken the top 20 at Firestone but he has placed in the top 10 on three occasions since the U.S. Open, including a playoff loss a week ago at the Canadian Open.
