This week, the PGA TOUR remains in Las Vegas for the CJ CUP after Sungjae Im’s win at the Shriners Children’s Open just up the road at TPC Summerlin.

The CJ CUP has been heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic more than any other stop on TOUR. Typically, it’s scheduled to be played overseas in South Korea, sending the world’s best players on an international adventure.

With the pandemic limiting travel, the CJ CUP will be played stateside for the second consecutive year in Las Vegas. Last year, the tournament found its way to Shadow Creek, where Jason Kokrak took home the top prize. This year, the event remains in Sin City but will move to The Summit Club.

This is the first time The Summit Club has hosted a TOUR event, though many of the top players in the world who make their home in Vegas practice and play at this course regularly. Without past events to base your bets on, recent form and theoretical course fit will instead take precedent this week. In the props markets, that leads to some intriguing value plays.

Collin Morikawa to Lead After First Round & Win (+4000 at DraftKings)

Among those who play their home golf at The Summit Club, Morikawa stands out. After struggling through injury down the stretch this season, the two-time major champion looks to be fully recovered and was back in form at the Ryder Cup. When he plays his best golf, there are few, if any, players on TOUR that can compete with Morikawa.

On his home course, having only played in the Ryder Cup since the Tour Championship, Morikawa should be rested and ready to compete this week. The odds on him doing so in dramatic fashion, with a low first round and winning on Sunday, are enticing enough for a wager.

Bet Collin Morikawa at DraftKings and get a $1,000 sign-up bonus.

Marc Leishman — Top Australian (+350 at BetMGM)

No player has been better on the PGA Tour’s two recent desert stops than Leishman. He finished in the top five in both the Fortinet Championship and the Shriners Children’s Open. Leishman has gained more strokes per round in the last 30 days than any other player with at least five rounds played in that span.

His game is rounding into form as the fall swing heats up. A win would be the perfect way to continue his hot streak. His odds to win are intriguing, yet it’s even more alluring to take him to beat his five fellow Aussies in the field.

Bet Marc Leishman at BetMGM and get a risk-free bet up to $1,000.

Max Homa to Top 5 (+1000 at BetMGM)

Homa’s win at the Fortinet Championship two weeks ago was the best performance we’ve seen in the very young 2022 PGA Tour campaign. Homa gained over 3.5 strokes on the field over the 72 holes in that event, en route to his third career victory on Tour. He did so primarily from tee to green, ranking in the top 15 that week in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee, approaching the green and around the green.

If Homa’s putter can remain consistent, his swing is clearly in a place that can help him compete atop the leaderboard. For a top-40 player in the world, coming off one of the best performances of his life, +1000 to finish in the top five is a great value. There are some other intriguing plays for Homa this week, like a matchup vs. Talor Gooch at DraftKings (with Homa going off at -105).
