2018 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Championship Odds and Picks

2018 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Championship Odds Favorites

  • Dustin Johnson                      +700
  • Rory McIlroy                           +1200
  • Tiger Woods                            +1200
  • Jordan Spieth                         +1800
Dustin Johnson’s odds are way too low to suggest backing. DJ didn’t have the greatest tournaments at The Open Championship. He could win the WGC-Bridgestone this week. But, it’s impossible to back him because he’s not 5 points better than either Rory McIlroy or Tiger Woods. The pick in the favorites category is Tiger Woods. Woods finished 6th at The Open Championship. Before that he had finished 4th at the Quicken Loans National. This is the tournament when Tiger gets back on the winning track. He’s a solid choice at the nice +1200 odds. Favorites Pick: Tiger Woods

2018 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Championship Odds Second Choices

  • Ricky Fowler                         +2000
  • Justin Thomas                     +2000
  • Jason Day                              +2200
  • John Rahm                           +2500
  • Tommy Fleetwood             +2500
  • Brooks Koepka                    +2800
John Rahm failed to make the cut at The Open Championship. That means Rahm has missed the cut in the past couple of PGA Tour Major Championships. Is that a sign that Rahm could fail miserably this week? Sure, it is. But, Rahm has been impressive for most of this year. It’s difficult to see him bombing in 3 straight PGA Tournaments. He’s young enough, 23-years-old, where he shouldn’t allow bad tournaments to keep him from playing his best week to week. This week, he should show up and play well. Don’t be surprised if John Rahm wins the Bridgestone Invitational. Second Choices Pick: John Rahm

2018 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational Championship Odds Underdogs

  • Henrik Stenson                      +3500
  • Alex Noren                               +3500
  • Hideki Mastuyama               +4000
  • Patrick Reed                           +4000
  • Bubba Watson                       +4500
  • Paul Casey                               +4500
  • Before missing the cut at the U.S. Open, Hideki Matsuyama had finished in the Top 20 at 3 straight tournaments. He finished 16th at the AT&T Byron Nelson. He followed that up with a 13th place finish at the Memorial Tournament. His 16th at the U.S. Open was also pretty good.
Bettors shouldn’t worry about Hideki missing the cut at The Open Championship. A lot of golfers miss the cut when playing over a links course. Matsuyama won the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last year. Some golfers map out the entire year before they play that first tournament. Hideki Matsuyama almost assuredly circled the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational as a tournament to try to win this year. He could repeat at huge odds. Underdogs Pick: Hideki Matsuyama
