  • The 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational begins Thursday at 6:45 a.m. ET.
  • Jason Sobel picked out three first-round matchup bets he thinks have value including Patrick Reed vs. Bryson DeChambeau.

ORLANDO – Tuesday was rainy, Wednesday was chilly, but Thursday looks downright perfect for the opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, with a high of 73 and exactly 1% chance of precipitation.

Let’s get right to my three favorite matchups in some of my favorite conditions.

Charles Howell III over Tyrrell Hatton (-125)

He’s not just consistent overall, Howell is consistently strong in opening rounds, breaking 70 in each of his last five and eight of 10 this season.

Considering his late pro-am time on Wednesday, I might’ve hesitated if this was an early Thursday start, but at 12:21 p.m. local time, I’m all-in on CH3 resting up and then posting another low one.
