The Best Bets To Win The Wyndham Championship

While the final major tournament of the season is in the rearview mirror, some of the best golfers in the world will still have everything to play for when they make their way to North Carolina for the Wyndham Championship this week. It’s the final event before the FedEx Cup Playoffs, which means it’s the final opportunity for those looking to secure their PGA Tour cards for 2018-19. It’s also one last chance for those trying to improve their position heading into the four-event finale.

2018 Wyndham Championship Best Bets

Webb Simpson +1200

Simpson is enjoying one of the best seasons of his career and that makes him the obvious betting favorite at a tournament that he has dominated in the past. In addition to winning the Wyndham Championship in 2011, Simpson has had five other top-12 finishes on this course. The current world No. 20 will be looking to add to his impressive resume with a strong performance once again in North Carolina.

Hideki Matsuyama +1600

Matsuyama has struggled with consistency of late but that could be even more reason to take a chance on him this week. After all, Matsuyama will be playing with a sense of urgency as he looks to rediscover his form heading into the FedEx Cup Playoffs and this will be the perfect opportunity to do exactly that. Matsuyama has just two top 10’s on his resume this season, but he has the talent to really turn it on and contend for the outright win at the Wyndham Championship.

Henrik Stenson +2000

Stenson’s lackluster form of late will be a concern to some. However, it also opens the door for those that feel confident he could bounce back this week to get him at solid odds. He won here last week, so that comfort level should help him get back on track.

Adam Scott +2200

This will be Scott’s third appearance at the Wyndham Championship and he will be hoping that the third time is the charm here following a podium finish in last week’s PGA Championship. Coming off his best finish at a major tournament in over five years, Scott should be brimming with confidence when he arrives in North Carolina this week.

Rafael Cabrera-Bello +2500

Cabrera-Bello placed fifth in this event two years ago and fits more into the category of a sleeper. Cabrera-Bello is coming off a top 10 finish at the PGA Championship and his tendency to play at a high level in bursts won’t be overlooked heading in to this event. He also placed a respectable 17th at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational two weeks ago, so he’s in the midst of a decent spell right now.

Shane Lowry +2500

Speaking of good value at +2500 odds, it’s worth mentioning that Lowry placed seventh at Sedgefield last year. The Irishman has recorded three consecutive top 15 finishes in his last three PGA outings. If you’re wary of betting him to win outright, a Top 10 prop bet could be a good fit here.

Joaquin Niemann +2800

Niemann is a teenager but he could surprise as a sleeper pick among men at the Wyndham Championship this week. The Chilean made the cut at the PGA Championship last week but finished 71st. However, he did finish 23rd at the John Deer Classic earlier this year and fifth at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Back in May, he also placed sixth at the Memorial and eight at the Fort Worth Invitational. He’s under the radar and could be a decent dart throw in an easier field this week.

Rory Sabbatini +6000

If you are looking for a long shot with good value, Sabbatini could be the best option as a at +6000. He already has a top 10 finish at Sedgefield on his resume and he is coming off a top 12 finish in his last start at the RBC Canadian Open.
