Last week, Dustin Johnson was the outright favorite a tournament that included Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy and was won by Bryson DeChambeau.
This week, Corey Conners, Will Zalatoris and MacKenzie Hughes are co-favorites in a field that is headlined by Henrik Stenson.
If ever there was a week to embrace the chaos, this is it. Everybody on the board has a chance in this field, so there are plenty of betting opportunities out there for the taking.
Here are our favorite prop bets for the 2020 Corales Puntacana Championship:
Will Zalatoris Top-5, Top-10, Top-20
Might as well just load up on the Korn Ferry star, who finished an impressive T-6 at Winged Foot last week.
Zalatoris hasn’t finished outside the top-20 anywhere since February and even though he might be gassed following the U.S. Open grindfest, he should be motivated by the fact that a special week could get him onto the PGA TOUR earlier than next year.
Akshay Bhatia Top-10 Finish (+1000)
I am a huge believer in Akshay Bhatia’s potential to become a star on the PGA TOUR. The smooth-swinging lefty has enormous raw talent and has achieved many of the highly regarded amateur accolades. He made a big bet on himself when deciding to not play collegiate golf and turn pro at the age of 17.
We saw Bhatia’s talent come through at the Safeway Open where he finished T9. The former top-ranked junior player in the world has a lot to play for and is looking to earn points and exemptions to qualify for future tournaments.
I will also be betting him outright as we likely won’t be seeing those types of odds on Bhatia for very long.
Will Gordon Top-10 Finish (+800)
We saw the potential that Will Gordon has shortly after the restart of the PGA TOUR season this summer when he finished third at the Travelers. He’s been up and down since that event, but he is too talented in this field for the odds being offered.
Gordon is extremely long off the tee and will be able to use that to his advantage around Corales to give himself opportunities to score. As you can see from my picks this week, I see it as an event for some of the younger players to have a chance to break through, and Gordon fits that mold well.
