- Our staff reveals their top sleeper picks for the 2020 Wyndham Championship, which tees off Tuesday at 7:00 a.m. ET.
- Find out why Robby Shelton, Nate Lashley and Kyle Stanley are among our favorite longshot bets at Sedgefield Country Club.
The week after a Major Championship is always a bit tricky to navigate. A lot of the stars are taking the week off to focus on the start of the 2020 FedEx Cup Playoffs, so the odds for the Wyndham Championship look very different compared to last week.
Casual fans may not see the beauty in this oddsboard but avid golf bettors know that these are the events to throw a couple of darts at some big prices.
The longshots should be live this week. Here are our favorite sleepers at the 2020 Wyndham Championship.
Robby Shelton (+25000, $10 bet wins $2,500)
Total hunch play here, as he’s never competed at this event before, but Shelton was T-3 at the 3M Open two starts ago and the Alabama native should be a guy who enjoys getting back to some Bermuda greens in the Southeast.
He was highly regarded out of college and a player who should start popping at some point soon, so this could be one where we look back a few months from now and wonder how he was ever 250/1 in a B-minus field.
Nate Lashley (+25000)
Lashley has had a slow start since play resumed but he made the cut at the PGA Championship and gained ground with his approach and short game against a strong field.
Lashley won on a Donald Ross design that produced a lot of birdies last year in Detroit, so Sedgefield, another Ross course, could be to his liking as well.
Kyle Stanley (+10000)
I’m targeting good ball-striking and Greens in Regulation numbers this week and Stanley checks the boxes. He ranks second in GIR and 25th in ball-striking in 2020.
The former Clemson Tiger is familiar with Sedgefield and finished 13th in this event last year, so I like his combination of form and course history to lend value at these odds. I think he makes a great DFS play, as well.
