The season-long tally has us up to $3,536. Wagering on the Match Play is fun, especially since you get so many matchups to choose from the first three days of the event. Here are my outrights, POD winners, and first-round matches…..I’ll post other matches to Twitter for tracking purposes. Best of luck if you play any!
We’ve hit outrights on Harris English, Si Woo Kim, Brooks Koepka, Daniel Berger, Collin Morikawa, and Justin Thomas. Also, hit First Round Leader plays on Kokrak and Fitzpatrick. Let’s hope the DEGUNITY hits big this week.
We have $326 in play to start the week. Looks for additional matches posted on @kevinsdelight throughout the event.
Jordan Spieth ($25 to win $500): It could be a fantastic week for Jordan in his home state. It doesn’t have to be perfect for four days.
Tony Finau ($25 to win $626): His balky putter could cost him a few holes….Let’s just hope they aren’t game-changers.
Tyrrell Hatton ($25 to win $750): His POD is brutal, but I love his fire for this event.
Scottie Scheffler ($25 to win $1,000): Another Texas fella…He’s got a great match play pedigree.
Abraham Ancer ($25 to win $1,250): Great experience in the Presidents Cup a few years ago. He keeps it in play and will take good rounds to beat him.
Louis Oosthuizen ($25 to win $69): If he can get by JT, he’ll win this POD. He can also make a deep run in the event—great match-play guy.
Bubba Watson ($25 to win $119): Plays well here….Like him to take down P Reed in this POD.
Paul Casey ($25 to win $35): Fell like it’s he or Webb in this POD…I’ll take the guy with a better record in match play.
Rory McIlroy ($25 to win $29): I really like Cam Smith this week, but +$ on Rory is tough to ignore. I’ll bite.
Round 1 Matches:
BRIAN HARMAN vs Cantlay ($25 to win $26): This is my favorite day 1 upset…..Vegas seems to think it’s even money….
BUBBA WATSON vs Reed ($25 to win $35): Another upset!
CHRISTIAAN BEZUIDENHOUT v Niemann ($25 to win $28): Like this one here….
MAX HOMA v Horschel ($26 to win $25): Max is in form….I would love nothing more than to see Billy get beat on day 1.
