2022 Honda Classic Prop Bets: Herman Well-Suited For The Test Of PGA National

With our outright wagers placed, we now turn our attention to the prop market for our expert selections for the 2022 Honda Classic. It is always important to search for value in the top finishing markets, so remember to shop around for the best lines for your 2022 Honda Classic prop bets as they typically differ from sportsbook to sportsbook.

Last week at the Genesis Invitational, not only did we cash an outright Sportsbook with Joaquin Niemann, but also a hefty top-20 wager with C.T. Pan at +1000, making for a memorable tournament and capping off a great West Coast swing filled with winning tickets. Our attention now turns to Florida and the prop market for the Honda Classic.

Tournament favorite Sungjae Im is heavily favored to finish inside the top 20 this week at [Sportsbook not available for your region]. The 2020 Honda Classic champion is listed at -225 and our odds calculator gives him a 69.23 percent chance to once again play well at PGA National.  After his win in 2020, the South Korean put together a stout title defense and finished inside the top 10 in last year’s Honda Classic. Needing to lay $225 to profit $100 with a wager on him this year, we will instead look further down the Honda Classic betting board in search of some perceived value.

2022 Honda Classic: What To Look For

The Honda Classic is not only one of the more difficult stops on the PGA Tour but one in which variance often comes to light. Because of this, you cannot cross out any names before the beginning of the tournament as we have seen Sportsbooks ranging from rookies on the PGA Tour to seasoned veterans.

In fact, since 2015, not only have Sungjae Im and Keith Mitchell captured their maiden titles on the PGA Tour at the Honda Classic, but old-timers Adam Scott and Padraig Harrington have found the proverbial fountain of youth. While at first glance these champions may not possess similarities, they often do when diving into their statistical profiles.

Combined with Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Matt Jones, who round out the Honda Classic Sportsbooks since 2015, tee-to-green performers have fared the best at the Champion Course at PGA National. With swirling winds, an abundance of water hazards and bunkers, and slick Bermuda grass greens, it is one of the sternest tests these players will face.

Because of this, putting will take somewhat of a back seat as the ability to predict who catches lightning in a bottle on the greens is next to impossible. Instead, for our Honda Classic prop bets, we will focus on wily veterans who can plot their way around PGA National and avoid the critical mistakes that would hypothetically drop them outside the top 20.

2022 Honda Classic Prop Bets & Best Bets

John Huh +400 To Finish Inside The Top 20

We looked in Huh’s direction at the World Wide Technology Championship given his stellar history in Mexico and he came through for us. Looking to the American once again, Huh possesses somewhat similar history at the Honda Classic, where he has made the cut in three of his last four appearances.

Not only does he have a T-15 finish under his belt this season, but he also has a T-12 result, coming at the RSM Classic. After performing well on two shorter courses with wall-to-wall Bermuda grass, this week at PGA National presents plenty of similarities.

While he has missed his first two cuts of 2022, there was still plenty to like about the state of his game. Gaining strokes on approach and putting at the American Express, a return to the East Coast should aid him in finding some additional form. With three top-20 finishes in his Honda Classic career, I like Huh to add to this resume, which makes for our first prop bet of the week.

Roger Sloan +650 To Finish Inside The Top 20

The Canadian finished his 2020-21 season on a high note, participating in the six-man playoff at the Wyndham Championship. While he fell short, he proved he is capable on short courses with Bermuda grass throughout. That makes Sloan one of my favorite props for the Honda Classic.

Despite missing three of four cuts in 2022, Sloan has impressed me from week to week. With his lone weekend appearance of the year coming at the American Express, the 34-year-old relied heavily on his short game. An area of the bag where I expect many to find some trouble this week, this could be telling of his chances on the Champion Course.

Set for his fourth Honda Classic appearance in a row, Sloan has found a certain comfort level around the Tom Fazio design. With finishes of T-30 and T-25 already to his name, an uptick in his iron play at the Genesis Invitational could translate to a similar result this week in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Bill Haas +1000 To Finish Inside The Top 20

Haas has played on a regular basis in the 2021-22 season but has yet to really find his footing. Despite the consistent number of reps, the former FedExCup champion has been unable to collect a top-30 finish. So while at first some may scratch their heads, I believe this is one of the few times this season where Haas can produce some fireworks.

In what will be his seventh appearance in the Honda Classic but only his second since 2010, Haas has found trouble since his debut appearance in 2007 at PGA National. Despite this, his recent around-the-green play is the primary reason for this selection. Gaining strokes on the field in seven consecutive starts dating back to 2021, the 39-year-old is well-suited for the trouble that lurks.

Mixing in solid off-the-tee, approach and putting performances, he has yet to piece it all together. On a shorter venue, I believe he is capable of doing so. While success has eluded Haas in the past at PGA National, +1000 is an attractive price for him to just finish inside the top 20.

Jim Herman +1000 To Finish Inside The Top 20

Sloan is not the only player on our list to play well in the Wydham Championship as Jim Herman is a past champion in Greensboro, North Carolina. While quality results have eluded Herman, this makes for his seventh consecutive start in the Honda Classic, a venue that theoretically should suit his game.

Extremely accurate off the tee and fantastic on connecting on greens in regulation, the Cincinnati product has had previous success in Palm Beach Gardens, namely a T-7 in 2015, but also a T-27 in 2017 and a T-53 in last year’s tournament. With enough previous history to catch my eye, the way in which Herman has been striking the ball to begin 2022 is going under the radar in my opinion.

Posting positive SG: Off-the-Tee and SG: Approach numbers at both the Sony Open and the Farmers Insurance Open, the 44-year-old appears to be on the cusp of finding his way back into contention.

While he has long been known as a volatile option throughout his career, when Herman plays himself into a tournament, he typically stays there. Betting that this week will be one of those scenarios, Herman to finish inside the top 20 makes for our final prop bet of the Honda Classic.
