Bubba is the most course-dependent player perhaps we’ve ever seen. When wins come for him — like they have at courses like River Highlands and Augusta — they’ve come in bunches. The two-time winner may not rate well in a bunch of non-course-specific models because, well, he’s a pretty streaky golfer. But his history at Augusta is hard to deny, and he benefits from perhaps the best characteristic there: He’s a lefty who can hit a fade.

Don’t get me wrong: He’s still streaky, even at Augusta: He placed fifth last year after missing the cut the year before. But he clearly has winning upside, which is why the best way to bet him is with to-win odds rather than matchups or a top 20.

Shoot for the stars and give yourself some hedge opportunities on the weekend if you’re itching for a Bubba bet.
