2018 Wichita Open Betting Odds & Preview

The Tour keeps rolling through the summer to Kansas for the Wichita Open. The event two weeks ago in Illinois was won by Chase Wright for his first victory of the season. That makes 12 players who have won their first professional event in 2018. That makes it interesting for handicapping purposes as anyone can win. The betting odds are courtesy of BetDSI Sportsbook.

The Favorites

Maverick McNealy (+1600): McNealy finished T-6 in Illinois, where a 73 on Saturday really hurt his chances. He has had leads in a few tournaments recently, and it seems to be a matter of time before he wins one. McNealy has to be a bit sharper with his irons, ranking 51st in greens-in-regulation.

Cameron Davis (+1800): Davis has played just five times this season on the Tour. He has made the cut in four events, and he won in Nashville. After getting some nerves out of his system, it looks like Davis is ready to take his game to the next level.

Sam Burns (+1800): Burns has not played on the since missing the cut in Knoxville, although he has played on the PGA Tour since then. He has a win in Savannah, and he just finished T-41 at one of the hardest U.S. Opens in recent memory. Burns could shoot the lights out here after playing at Shinnecock Hills.

Cameron Percy (+1800): Percy has played in four events this season, and he finished T-6 in Raleigh recently. He also finished T-26 at the St. Jude Classic on the PGA Tour prior to the U.S. Open.

Next In Line

Sung-Jae Im (+2500): Im continues to lead the money list after finishing T-22 in Illinois. He started slowly with a round of 75, his third tournament in a row where he shot 70 or worse in the first round. But in those three tournaments, the other nine rounds have all been between 66 and 69.

Sebastian Munoz (+2800): Munoz finished T-6 in Illinois and then missed the cut at the U.S. Open, so he is ready for this course. He is 42nd on the Tour in greens-in-regulation, but 18th in putting. He needs to get it a little closer to the hole.

Scott Langley (+2800): Langley finished T-33 in Illinois, and he is solid, ranking fourth in driving accuracy (although 116th in distance) and second in greens-in-regulation. However, he is 78th in putting. If he is consistent with the flatstick, Langley could get a win.

Sleeper Picks

Sebastian Cappelen (+7500): Cappelen has struggled badly this year, missing nine cuts and he finished T-48 in Illinois. But he won here in 2014 and has finished in the top ten on two other occasions in Wichita.

Chris Naegel (+10000): Naegel finished T-33 in Illinois, and then finished T-56 at the U.S. Open. That is a lot better than some PGA Tour players, so Naegel should be confident this week.
