  • Dustin Johnson (+600) and Jason Day (+900) are the favorites to win the 2019 Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
  • Our golf experts share their favorite bets for this weekend's PGA Tour event.

The PGA Tour heads to the Monterey Peninsula this weekend for the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Dustin Johnson (+500) and Jason Day (+800) are the betting favorites, with Tony Finau (+1800) the only other golfer shorter than 20-1.

Here are our golf experts’ favorite bets for the tournament:

Jason Sobel

Top Player from Great Britain and Ireland: Shane Lowry (+400)

I like Lowry this week. He’s in form, with a win and a T-12 in his two European Tour starts this year. He’s (theoretically) motivated, having lost his PGA Tour card last season. And he’s a terrific bad-weather player, the type of guy who could thrive in the wind and rain.

Against just six other GB&I players, I love his chances to cash this bet.

Lowry is third-favorite behind Tommy Fleetwood and Paul Casey, the latter of whom I believe should be his greatest threat. Listed behind him are Matthew Fitzpatrick, Russell Knox, Martin Laird and Graeme McDowell, but I don’t foresee a big week coming for any of them, either, though Fitz could be an interesting punt in his maiden voyage to Pebble.

Even so, this feels like a Lowry/Casey battle to me. And at +400, I like the chances of Lowry winning this one.
