Look, predicting a pre-tournament Sportsbook 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 Dell Technologies Championship.
For a full breakdown of the tournament, check out my betting preview.

My favorite pick: Brooks Koepka +1200
Koepka is playing better golf than anyone on the PGA Tour right now, and blindly betting him before every tournament from here on out is a very reasonable strategy. The 2017 and 2018 U.S. Open champion and now the 2018 PGA Championship Sportsbook has three majors under his belt and somehow only one non-major win, however, those are going to add up.
Koepka’s T-8 at the Northern Trust shows he’s still in the groove right now, and while the +1200 price is not great, I’m more than comfortable picking him regardless. The 28-year-old recorded a T-18 at TPC Boston in 2017 and should build off that showing this time around.
My second favorite pick: Patrick Cantlay +3300
Cantlay, who notched a T-8 at the Northern Trust, has elevated himself into the upper echelon of the tour this season, and his 11th FedExCup placement and 23rd Official World Golf Ranking prove it. The UCLA product made his debut at the Dell Technologies Championship a year ago and had a very impressive T-13 finish as a result.
Cantlay has the makeup of a solid player across the board, and his improved length off the tee will help him at TPC Boston. His win at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open last November remains his lone triumph in the season, but he has an impressive seven top-10s since then.
My third favorite pick: Billy Horschel +4500
Horschel is one of the streakiest players on the tour, and he’s in excellent form heading into the second leg of the FedExCup playoffs. The American left Ridgewood with a T-3 and will look to keep the momentum going in Massachusetts.
Horschel, who was a co-runner-up here in 2014, has four top-20s in his last six starts. Two stats that are going to be key at TPC Boston are greens in regulation and scrambling, and the veteran ranked T-3 in GIR and first in scrambling at the Northern Trust. At +4500, Horschel’s price is simply too good to pass up.
