Which player among Thomas, Koepka, Fleetwood, Matsuyama, or Hovland offers the most value to win the 2019 The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges?

Thomas hasn’t unpacked his sticks since last August. No worries, though. Golfers can get back into a groove in a hurry. Before putting the bag away, he was hitting the ball incredibly well with a first place finish at the BMW Championship and a third at the Tour Championship. Not only that, but Thomas did win this tournament last year.Although Thomas must be taken seriously, he doesn’t offer the most value among the favorites. That player is Viktor Hovland. The 22-year-old Norwegian should make huge strides this season. He finished fourth at the Wyndham Championship in early August and, like Thomas, has kept himself on the bench. Hovland offers +2000 odds, which makes him a value play in a tournament where, let’s be honest, the favorite should be vulnerable.

Which golfers at the odds of +2200 to +4000 can win the 2019 CJ Cup at Nine Bridges?

Marc Leishman shouldn’t be a +2800 choice. Leishman made the cut in 2-of-4 majors last season. He didn’t hit badly, finishing nineteenth at the BMW Championship and twenty-fourth at the Tour Championship, before taking a break. More importantly, he finished at -9 at the 2018 The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges golf tournament.Leishman lost to Justin Thomas in a playoff. One golfer offers +650 odds and the other offers +2800 odds. If you believe, back Leishman at the much higher odds.

Which underdog golfers at +4500 odds or higher can win the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges?

Beyong Hun An shot a respectable -4 at this event last year. It’s difficult to understand why he’s at +5000 odds. He didn’t shoot all that badly over the summer, making the cut in five straight tournaments including The Open Championship, the Northern Trust, and the BMW Championship. An could get it done at sweet odds this week.

What PGA Tournament Matchups should golf handicappers consider at the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges?

Check out three tournament matchups to consider playing this week:
  • Andrew Putnam          +1 ½ (-135)
  • Beyond Hun An          -1 ½ (+105)
An should have no trouble outshooting Putnam on a course he’s familiar with. Last year, An shot a 73 fourth round. If not for that, he might have finished in third place. Heck, if he shot a great Round 4, he might have put himself into the playoff with Thomas and Leishman.
  • Jordan Spieth              +1 ½ (-135)
  • Sung-Jae Im                -1 ½ (+105)
Neither one of these golfers hit the ball exceptionally well heading to the bench. Also, neither golfer played at the 2018 The CJ Cup at Nine Bridges. Because of that, it makes sense to back Sung-Jae over Jordan. Spieth doesn’t head to South Korea in any better form than Sung-Jae is in. Take the better odds.
  • Brooks Koepka           -1 ½ (-110)
  • Hideki Matsuyama      +1 ½ (-120)
Matsuyama was on fire before taking a break. He finished third at the BMW Championship and ninth at the Tour Championship. It’s always difficult to go against Brooks Koepka, though. Although there’s a good chance Hideki outplays Koepka, -120 just isn’t as attractive as -110. Back Brooks to get off to a good start after September’s break. he can get it done in this matchup.
