Given it’s place on the schedule — between The Players Championship and WGC-Match Play — you’d think the 2019 Valspar Championship would have a weaker field, that’s not the case.
Dustin Johnson (+550) is the betting favorite, but Jon Rahm (+1000), Jason Day (+1000), Sergio Garcia (+1600) and Webb Simpson (+1800) are not too far behind.
The tournament takes place on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook resort in Palm Harbor, Fla.
Here are our staff’s favorite bets for the weekend:
Kevin Kisner/Brandt Snedeker/Jason Kokrak: Top-5 Finish (+1000)
This week’s favorite bet is really three bets and I’m just hoping one of ‘em pays off — anything else is gravy.
I really like the mid-tier plays of Kisner, Snedeker and Kokrak this week. Not sure they’ll each contend for the title, but I do think at least one of them will be up there.
