PGA Tour Betting Predictions – 2020 Safeway Open Odds & Pick
While reigning champion, Cameron Champ, is not in the field this year, the 2020 Safeway Open does feature some big-time names. Thee-time major winner Jordan Spieth is in the field, along with five-time major winner Phil Mickelson and 2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia.

The 37-year-old Steele won this event in 2016 and 2017 and comes into this year’s event having finished inside the top 55 in seven straight events, including his T33 finish at the BMW Championship two weeks ago.
Harold Varner III
The 30-year-old Varner finished T17 at this event a year ago and although he comes into this year’s tournament off a missed cut at the Northern Trust, he also finished T7 in his previous event at the Wyndham Championship. Varner recorded a modest one, Top-1o finish this past season, but five Top 25 finishes. Varner has plenty of talent and could cash in on those skills this weekend.
Spieth missed the cut in his last event at the Northern Trust and consecutive finishes in the 70s, but he also finished T13 at the Memorial in July. More importantly, I like Spieth here simply because he possess a ton of talent, even if he hasn’t shown it recently.
The 30-year-old South Korean comes into this event riding a six-tournament streak of Top-50 finishes that includes a T3 at the Wyndham and a T39 at the Northern Trust the last time out. In 24 tournaments last season, Kim recorded four Top-25 finishes, one Top-10 finish and the aforementioned third place finish. He’ll have a chance.
The 33-year-old Irishman reached the FedEx Cup Playoffs last season and although he missed the cut at the Northern Trust the last time out, Lowry did finish T23 at the Wyndham Championship just prior to that while finishing sixth at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in early August.
