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 RBC Canadian Open.
For a full breakdown of the tournament, check out my betting preview.

My favorite pick: Scott Piercy +2800
The last time this tournament was played at Hamilton, Piercy came away with the hardware. At 40, the Las Vegas native still has enough talent to remain competitive in any given tournament, and I like his chances to put forth another strong showing at the RBC Canadian Open. Piercy has six top-10s in 2018-19, including a co-runner-up at Trinity Forest a month ago.
My second favorite pick: Ryan Palmer +5000
Palmer, who finished T-19 at Hamilton in 2012, is coming off a T-6 at Colonial two weeks ago. The 42-year-old has five top-25s in 12 appearances at the RBC Canadian Open and is well worth the shot at his pre-tournament price of +5000.
My third favorite pick: Corey Conners +10000
A Canadian hasn’t won this event since 1954, but Conners looks like a prime candidate to end the drought. Conners, an Ontario native, ranks sixth on the PGA Tour in greens in regulation, first in proximity to the hole and 16th in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Fresh off a surprising win at the Valero Texas Open two months ago, Conners is full of confidence ahead of the 2019 RBC Canadian Open.
