Our Picks

Very few are playing as well as Justin Thomas. He had a great finish in Mexico and always loves this course. Not a lot of money to be made here with 5/1 odds.

At 30/1we like Daniel Berger in this event after finishing tied for 2nd place last week.

With no particular reason except it is a longshot we will attempt to make money with Michael Thompson and Russell Knox at 50/1 odds to finish in the top five.
