Updated 2022 WGC-Dell Match Play Odds
It's been a thrilling week of match play this week at the 2022 WGC-Dell Match Play. With plenty of upsets and incredible individual performances, it has certainly had the feel of "March Madness."
On Sunday, we find ourselves with Dustin Johnson, Scottie Scheffler, Kevin Kisner, and Corey Conners in this Final Four.
DJ will have a heavyweight tilt with Scheffler in the first semifinal, while Kisner will try to make a return to the finals by disposing of Conners, who went 0-3 in the group stage of this event last year.
WGC-Match Play Semifinals Best Bets
Kevin Kisner -120 over Corey Conners (DraftKings)
In the quarterfinals, we saw Kisner put in a dominant performance against Will Zalatoris. His knack for making long putts and escaping difficult situations makes him feel impossible to beat at times in this format. Kisner has a record of 22-6-1 in match play at Austin Country Club, highlighting how well the course suits him.
Conners has been a nice surprise this week, as he typically struggles with the putter but drilled plenty of them on Saturday. I believe the Canadian's luck will run out when facing the king of match play in Kisner.
Dustin Johnson -110 over Scottie Scheffler (DraftKings)
This match will no doubt be a heavyweight bout with two of the best players in the world facing off. Scheffler is the fan favorite and almost won the event last year; he certainly has plenty of momentum with two victories in his past three starts. Amazingly, if he wins the tournament, he will surpass Jon Rahm and become the new top-ranked player in the world.
However, I'm going with the veteran Johnson in this spot. DJ's game seems to be rounding into form at precisely the right time. He defeated Richard Bland and Brooks Koepka on Saturday and really didn't have to hole too many lengthy putts, he was just remarkable from tee to green. Johnson is an underrated putter and I have an inclination that the putter will heat up tomorrow.
Finals (Johnson vs. Kisner)
This would be a fascinating matchup due to the clash of styles between the two players. Both Johnson and Kisner have won this event in the past four years and would be looking to become two-time champions of the tournament.
When Johnson won in 2017, he defeated Rahm, who has a similar play style. The same goes for Kisner when he took down Matt Kuchar to claim the trophy. The stark contrast in skill set would make for a truly entertaining final match-up, but I give Johnson the edge.
Prediction: Johnson wins 3&2 over Kisner
