THE PLAYERS Championship Tips & Predictions

Players Championship Best Bet – Scottie Scheffler

Scheffler plays his best golf in March and April, as evident when winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational last week.

We secured him at $7.50 last week, and punters got paid, and there’s no reason to leave him out of selections again.

The American world number one is the defending Players Championship winner, having scored by five strokes over LIV’s Tyrrell Hatton last year.

He recently changed putters, which had a huge impact on his putting statistics at the Arnold Palmer. If that continues, he could be nearly unstoppable at TPC Sawgrass this week.

Take the odds with Scheffler, because if he starts well, the $6.00 will firm to around $2.90.

Bet: Scottie Scheffler @ $6.00

Players Championship Best Value – Patrick Cantlay

Despite being the more boring golfer on the PGA Tour, we expect Patrick Cantlay to be near the top of the leaderboard.

He comes off a disappointing effort last week when shooting +2, but the 31-year-old American is a proven winner on the tour.

He’s an eight-time PGA Tour winner, including three FedEx Cup playoff wins, so he knows when to strike on the big occasions.

Cantlay has yet to win a tournament in March, but the Players should be right up his alley, and the $26.00 odds are too juicy to pass up.

Bet: Patrick Cantlay @ $26.00

Players Championship Best Roughie – Will Zalatoris

Credit goes to Will Zalatoris for hanging tough and playing competitive golf despite his injuries.

The young golfer has more potential than most, but having back problems at such a young age is never a good sign. However, he has changed the aggressiveness of his swing, and it’s having a positive impact on his scoring.

The 27-year-old finished T2 at the Genesis Invitational before finishing T4 at the Arnold Palmer. That’s excellent form for the Players, and we think his golf odds are overly generous.

He’s a $31.00 chance with bookmakers, and that’s much better than what we expected. The Players is often won by golfers yet to win a major, so Zalatoris fits the bill, so don’t leave him out of your golf picks.

Bet: Will Zalatoris @ $31.00

Players Championship Next Best – Min Woo Lee

There is a lot of pressure put on Min Woo Lee, despite having never won on the PGA Tour.

He owns three DP World Tour wins, but because he finished T5 at the U.S. Open, punters expect him to be winning regularly on the tour.

It’s not that easy, but we think the Australian should play well at the Players, and the course should suit his style of play.

Getting $41.00 makes him worth the risk, and this could be his coming out party on the PGA Tour.

Bet: Min Woo Lee @ $41.00

Players Championship First Round Leader – Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas needs a confidence boost, but he played well last week when finishing T12.

He could shoot the lowest opening round score on Friday morning, and that would give him a big shot in the arm.

Thomas is a former elite-level player who is going through some tough times on the course. Getting off to a fast start at Sawgrass could see him get back into contention.

We’re happy to back him at $34.00 odds.

Bet: Justin Thomas @ $34.00
