2023 Farmers Insurance Open Odds: Schauffele Tops The Oddsboard

The PGA Tour remains in the state of the California for the 2024 Farmers Insurance Open. Moving up one day on the calendar and beginning on Wednesday instead of Thursday to avoid competing with the NFL Playoffs, the Farmers Insurance Open marks the most difficult test of the young season.

Last year, Max Homa claimed the title at 13 under and fended off a clustered chasing pack that included Keegan Bradley, Collin Morikawa and Sam Ryder. Homa is among the favorites this week as he searches for a successful title defense and his fifth career victory in his home state of California.

2024 Farmers Insurance Open Betting Picks

Xander Schauffele To Win (+900)

Schauffele has plenty of familiarity with Torrey Pines as he grew up playing on this golf course. The knowledge did not pay dividends early in his career as he missed four of his first five cuts in the Farmers Insurance Open, but he looks like have taken a leap in recent years. Schauffele has now made three straight cuts at Torrey Pines including a runner-up performance in 2021 and a T-13 finish in last year’s tournament.

He arrives this time around fresh off a T-3 finish at the American Express and a strong showing at The Sentry. Over the last six months, Schauffele ranks first in total strokes gained, second in strokes gained tee-to-green, fifth in strokes gained approach, sixth in strokes gained around the green and 10th in strokes gained putting.

If he can muster together an accurate week with the big stick then the American should love his chances to enter the winner’s circle in his old backyard.

Sungjae Im To Win (+2000)

Im has been trending towards a victory for a long time and while last week did not work out for him, Torrey Pines presents another great opportunity.

The South Korean arrives having finished inside the top 25 in eight straight starts including a T-5 at The Sentry and top 10s in the St. Jude Championship and BMW Championship. He has proven his game is tailor made for difficult golf courses like Torrey Pines with his run of success in California. Im has made all five cuts at the Farmers Insurance Open and found a new level of success the last two years with finishes of T-4 and T-6.

He ranks fifth in this field in total strokes gained over the last six months through a well-rounded effort that should only help his chances this week.

Min Woo Lee To Win (+2500)

This price may same steep for a first-year PGA Tour member, but Lee is a proven winner. Winning on the Asian Tour and DP World Tour during the fall, the Australian put his intense mettle and love for the game on full display around the world.

He now arrives on the PGA Tour and early returns have been positive having contended at tournaments like the Players Championship, U.S. Open and Travelers Championship in 2023. He comes off a T-21 finish at his first start of the season at the American Express and is just a strong iron performance away from seriously contending. Over the last six months, he ranks ninth in total strokes gained and third in strokes gained around the green in this field.

Daniel Berger To Win (+8000)

This may be too soon for the former top 10 player in the world, but early indications from his injury are fantastic. Berger made the cut at the American Express in what was his first competitive start since the 2022 U.S. Open and first start in 18 months. 

He struck the ball beautifully in both rounds at the Stadium Course gaining more than one stroke off the tee and nearly another two on approach in each instance. The short game still has some time to develop, but Torrey Pines could provide a nice landing spot as everyone tends to struggle with the bumpy poa annua putting surfaces.

He placed nicely at the 2021 U.S. Open and clocked a top-20 finish in the 2022 Farmers Insurance Open showing he may have figured out the puzzle that is this par 72.

Tony Finau Top-20 Finish (+140)

When it comes to horses for courses Finau certainly qualifies for Torrey Pines. He has notched eight top-25 finishes in nine starts at the Farmers Insurance Open with high marks like his runner-up finish in 2021 and top-10 result in 2023.

He arrives in middling form as he has not contended for a victory since his win at the Mexico Open in April, but he continues to show signs of progress. Finau finished T-4 at the Hero World Challenge during the winter months and just connected on a T-25 result at the American Express where he gained strokes throughout the bag.

The putter has been a problem, but if it cooperates the rest of his game should give him enough leeway to finish inside the top 20. Over the last six months, he ranks 10th in strokes gained tee-to-green, 11th in strokes gained approach and 14th in strokes gained around the green.
