After a crazy week of weather in Bermuda, the PGA TOUR should have a better week at the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba.
El Camaleon is a familiar stop for the players and not a very difficult track. Scoring is usually pretty low, with some impressive numbers always going up on Thursday.
Here are my favorite bets to be the first-round leader for the Mayakoba.
Cameron Tringale | +3500
It’s been a few weeks since I last tried to push a Cameron Tringale FRL bet on you all. It feels very overdue. Tringale is coming off of a runner-up finish at the ZOZO, tying his career best on TOUR. Despite no wins to his name, Tringale is still rich. I doubt it keeps him up at night.
Mayakoba is a pretty easy golf course, and Cam gains a decent amount of strokes on setups like these. Tringale has been firing from all cylinders recently, and now is the time to keep betting. him.
Joaquin Niemann | +5000
I feel like the young Chilean has been getting overlooked a lot recently. He hasn’t missed a cut since June, but he also hasn’t had a top-10 finish since July when he posted a runner-up finish in Detroit at the Rocket Mortgage. Despite that, he’s been very consistent.
I think Niemann’s game is very close to very good again. His Strokes Gained stats are starting to bounce back, so it won’t be long until he’s cashing every week.
Rickie Fowler | +5000
Here’s another guy whose game is on the rebound. Rickie Fowler has started playing some great golf after missing out on the FedExCup Playoffs last season.
Fowler posted a T-3 finish in his first start of the wraparound season at the CJ CUP, gaining nearly 8.0 strokes on the field that week. His game looks good, his swing looks free, and low scores are around every corner for the former Poke.
Brian Harman | +7500
Despite going to the University of Georgia, Brian Harman is one of my favorite bets most week on TOUR. There was a while where we weren’t getting great value on him, but it appears bookmakers have forgotten about Mr. Harman’s very existence.
Harman is a great bet across the board this week. He has a solid first round scoring average, he’s able to play well all four days (easier said than done) and he’s usually undervalued.
