The PGA TOUR’s swing season is, pardon the pun, in full swing.

The fields during the fall portion of the 2020/21 season may not feature the same amount of starpower that we see at the marquee events, but ask any avid golf bettor about the autumn tournaments and they’ll tell you that there’s some serious value to be had at tournaments like the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Here are our favorite matchup bets at the 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship:

Jason Sobel

Talor Gooch (-112) over Pat Perez

His ball-striking numbers last season weren’t as good as they’ve been in the past, but Talor Gooch is a very good iron player, which is an obvious strength on this course.

I don’t love the idea fading Perez, who’s been playing decent, but Gooch is the play here in a fairly even matchup.

Sungjae Im (+115) over Scottie Scheffler

Overall, I think Sungjae Im is a better player than Scottie Scheffler.

Im hit a bit of a slump during the summer, but we saw a dramatic improvement with his ball-striking at the U.S. Open where he gained a little over eight strokes. He’s also shown he putts his best on Bermuda, while that was Scheffler’s worst surface during his rookie season.

Combine all that with a runner-up finish from Im here a year ago and I think it’s worth it to back him at plus-money.

Chris Murphy

Denny McCarthy (+100) over Chez Reavie 

I’m usually one to bet on bad putters and hope the variance catches them on a good week. This pick is taking things in the opposite direction as I’m taking an elite putter, especially on bermuda, to outlast Chez Reavie who has struggled with the flatstick.

It’s not all putter for McCarthy though as he improved his ball-striking over the last two months, flashing some really good numbers especially on approach.

The odds show this to be a lopsided matchup towards Reavie, but they’ve been pretty similar players of late with the putter standing out as the difference.

Matt Vincenzi

Sam Burns (-118) over Corey Conners

I think Burns has a very strong chance to win this week and should absolutely get into contention. Alternatively, Conners has been out of sorts lately missing the cut last week at Corales and missing four of his past six starts overall.

Conners seems mispriced being grouped with someone who’s been playing some of the best golf of his career lately in Sam Burns. I am siding with the golfer in great form in the matchup.
