Expert PGA Betting Picks: Wyndham Championship

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 Wyndham Championship.

Kevin Kisner (+1400)

Always being the bridesmaid but never the bride is a common theme for Kisner’s golf career so far. The 33-year-old is coming off a runner-up finish at the PGA Championship despite being in total control for the first three rounds before faltering on Sunday. Don’t expect much of a hangover from him, however; he’s playing some excellent golf right now.

Sedgefield is a perfect fit for the amazingly accurate Kisner, and he’s fared well here in the past. Sedgefield also closely resembles Harbour Town and Sea Island, which are also courses where Kisner has enjoyed plenty of success. The +1400 price isn’t great, but when you look at the depleted field, it makes sense.

Webb Simpson (+2200)

This is the golf version of a home game for Simpson, who got his first career Tour win here. Simpson is in solid form right now, and a T-33 finish at the PGA Championship will inspire some hope in bettors thanks to a bevy of late birdies at Quail Hollow.

Everything is lining up well for Simpson this weekend. His familiar surroundings, excellent ball-striking and improved putting could easily translate into a solid performance for the North Carolinian.

Lucas Glover (+5000)

Glover is far from a household name, but I’m more than comfortable taking him at the pre-tournament price of +5000 for the same reasons I’m backing Simpson. A fellow native of North Carolina, Glover knows the course extremely well, which makes him a decent spot selection at the Wyndham.

The veteran has made the cut 11 out of his 13 trips to Greensboro and has performed well, notching eight T-25 showings in the process. That’s good enough for me.
