Okay golf betting enthusiasts, while this year’s slate of major championships is in the history books, there are still plenty of opportunities to cash in with some winning stick wagers with the 2019-20 PGA Tour season now heading into its third event.

Justin Thomas, is the prohibitive at 6-1 odds heading into the 2019 Safeway Open, followed by Adam Scott and Patrick Cantlay at identical 11-1 odds. Hideki Matsuyama is a 14-1 pick while Bryson Dechambeau and Sungae Im are identical 25-1 picks to get the win. Also in the field are notable names like Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples, John Daly, Brandt Snedeker, Jim Furyk, Jimmy Walker, Pat Perez, Jason Dufner and Marc Leishman.

Defending champion Kevin Tway is also in the field and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will compete on a sponsor’s exemption.

The Favorites

I like Ryan More as a whopping 66-1 pick, seeing as how he finished T2 here a year ago. For that matter, I’m also going to give veteran Brandt Snedeker a realistic chance after he also finished T2 last year. An even better pick to win this year’s event might be 2016 and 2017 winner Brendan Steele, a whopping 80-1 pick right now.

While Justin Thomas is the favorite and elite golfers Adam Scott and Patrick Cantlay will likely challenge, I like a middle-of-the-pack contender here like 2015 winner Emiliano Grillo, 2015 runner-up Kevin Na.

My Pick to Win the 2019 Safeway Open

In the end, I’m going with Brendan Steele simply because he knows this course and has proven on more than one occasion that he knows how to get it done here, although he’s never faced a field this loaded in this event. History repeats itself for the third time in the last four years.

Pick: Brendan Steele
