Patrick Reed is the top choice for golf betting followers, but there could be better value available further down the board.
Viktor Hovland +1200
The young Norwegian Viktor Hovland just picked up his second PGA Tour win of his career this past week at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico. Hovland won the event with a score of 20 under par and shot a 63 in the third round to ascend the leaderboard.

Hovland could easily dominate the field if he stays in his form from last week, but faces the challenge of winning back to back tournaments. Nevertheless, Hovland would be a tremendous pick up after the first round if his odds jump a small amount.
Collin Morikawa +1400
It wouldn’t be a proper golf preview without mention of the 2020 PGA Champion Collin Morikawa. Morikawa hasn’t had too much success since his breakthrough win earlier this year, but he still remains one of the best pure ball strikers in this field and likely the most accurate golfer.
Morikawa has performed well in international events and could add the Euro Tour championship to his growing list of accomplishments at a young age.
Sungjae Im +1700
Another young player, Sungjae Im stormed to the front of the FedEx Cup rankings as the game returned from pandemic hiatus earlier this year. Sungjae went on to finish second at the Masters in November, as well as reaching a career-high ranking of 11 all at the age of 22.
Im has the power, accuracy, and putting prowess to run through this tournament, but still should be a great pick up after the first round of play.
