  • Jason Sobel offers his three favorite matchup bets for the Zurich Classic, which starts on Thursday.

The Zurich Classic is fun to bet, but it’s also among the most difficult tournaments of the year to handicap.

In a nutshell: Two-man teams playing two different formats for two rounds each means there’s a much higher level of volatility than other events, which in turn leads to a greater capacity for randomness.

In other words: Fade the chalk.

While it can be problematic in trying to find outright winners, the nature of the beast calls for a more level playing field, offering greater value to underdogs in matchup bets.

No surprise, but I’m starting my card with a tandem at plus-money this week.
