TPC Sawgrass will play host to THE PLAYERS Championship this week a year after being canceled due to COVID-19. It’s been a crazy year, to say the least, but feels like we’re getting closer to normal. Let’s dive into the plays for the week.
We head into THE PLAYERS up $3,933 for 2021. Last week was our first losing week of 2021, time to bounce back! We’ve hit outrights on Harris English, Si Woo Kim, Brooks Koepka, Daniel Berger, and Collin Morikawa. Also, hit First Round Leader plays on Kokrak and Fitzpatrick. Best of luck if you play this week….
Justin Thomas ($25 to win $450): All aboard the JT train this week…Hop on before he gets hot and odds get back to 10/1 or lower….
Webb Simpson ($25 to win $500): Good form, great course history….Time for Webb to add another PLAYERS trophy
Tony Finau ($25 to win $625): This is where the card gets SCARY…Finau, Spieth, and Fleetwood, OH MY! Finau winning here would be appropriate. But can easily see him rinsing one on 17 late Sunday
Jordan Spieth ($25 to win $625): He’s back…Yes he’s back! Form is solid, just look at all the Top 10’s. Hope this luck box can continue to hole out from anywhere this week.
Tommy Fleetwood ($25 to win $1,000): This was a tougher click than Finau. BUT I like the play
Hideki Matsuyama ($25 to win $81): Nearly made the outright card. If he’s in the mix after Friday I’ll have to hop on.
Abraham Ancer ($25 to win $125): Great track for ABE….
Emiliano Grillo ($25 to win $200): Love this number for a Top 10
Chris Kirk ($25 to win $200): Kirk played well last week and has nice CH here. Why not!
Brendon Todd ($25 to win $213): It’s a Brendon Todd week. Plug him into DraftKings too.
Head 2 Head:
CHRISTIAAN BEZHIDENHOUT vs Joaquin Niemann ($30 to win $38): CB is one of my favorite DK plays this week. A good showing at API last week and an opening-round 65 here last year….
ABRAHAM ANCER -1.5 vs Harris English ($30 to win $33): I’m an English guy but prefer Abe here
MATT KUCHAR -1.5 vs Bubba Watson ($30 to win $33): It’s a Kuchar track. Don’t be surprised if he’s in the mix late Sunday.
JUSTIN THOMAS -1.5 vs Patrick Cantlay ($30 to win $36): Like this play as I like JT to win.
RORY MCILROY vs Dustin Johnson ($32 to win $30): Hope Rory finds his spark he’s looking for.
First Round Leader (FRL):
Tony Finau ($25 to win $825): Tony can take it deep any time….Hoping it’s Thursday
Jordan Spieth ($25 to win $875): Love this play as he can catch fire and make birdies in bunches.
Scottie Scheffler ($25 to win $875): Another guy who likes to go low….
Tommy Fleetwood ($25 to win $1,125): Love this play more than his outright…..How about a wire to wire victory??? Would be SWEET.
Sungjae Im ($25 to win $1,250): Too big of a number to ignore.
