Golfers That Could Win
Justin Thomas (+1600) deserves some attention in this loaded field at Genesis. After placing eighth at the Waste Management Open, he had a shot to close the gap but his putter was just not having it this time. He has some mixed results here, as he almost won back in 2019, but has since missed two cuts.
Viktor Hovland (+2500) is a solid pick, even though his recent ranking dropped down to fourth. This could have accidentally created a great betting opportunity. He has a solid history here in strokes gained per round, but he just seems tired and not as electrifying playing week after week.
Collin Morikawa (+1800) is a great choice if you are expecting good ball striking and respectable numbers in strokes gained per round. But, his putter will be in question as it was last year here. At these odds, it would not hurt to throw something at him.
Potential Pick to Win
Patrick Cantlay (+1200) has the second best odds to win in the loaded field and has the best momentum coming into this event. After losing to a playoff in the Waste Management Open, his last four events have been fourth, ninth, T-4, and second.
In addition, his last 16 rounds of golf have been phenomenal. Just two rounds have been over 68, so this is video game-like material.
Cantlay’s game is perfect for this event and he is due for a victory any time now. The last two times he has played here, he has slightly improved from a 17th place finish to a 15th.
