2022 Wyndham Championship Sunday Best Bets: Russell Henley in Position to Remedy 2021 Playoff Loss

2022 Wyndham Championship Sunday Best Bets: Russell Henley in Position to Remedy 2021 Playoff Loss article feature image

The weather was the story again on Saturday as the leaders were only able to get in just over half of their third round of play due to storms moving into the area. Everyone still on the course will assume their positions at 7:30 a.m. EST on Sunday morning and get ready for a marathon day to decide the Wyndham Championship.

Since we only have partial round data, I will add the full chart to the bottom of this article, but will instead focus on my best bets as things stand right now. It’ll be interesting to try to adjust on what has to be a pretty soggy track and some players who will be stepping into important approach shots as the leaders play a difficult stretch of the course. There is certainly some value to be had, especially with so much golf still to be played at Sedgefield Country Club.

Best Bets

Russell Henley +850 (FanDuel)

I really like where I stand with my opening card this week and you’ll see that again in my best bets. Russell Henley was one of the first guys on my card to start the tournament and he still has some value going into Sunday at the Wyndham Championship.

Henley is in the group two shots back of the leaders and has continued to be sharp with his game tee to green. His issue is still the putter, which pops up at inopportune times, but you have to believe he puts it together at some point and that point will have to be Sunday. If he can get the flatstick rolling, he can certainly win this tournament and we have some fair odds on it at FanDuel, where he’s listed at +850 — right around the 10.3% win odds projected at DataGolf.

Alex Smalley +4000 (BetMGM)

My pretournament pick to win was Alex Smalley and he has certainly shown up this week as he sits just four shots back of the leaders going into Sunday morning. He had just dropped his first shot of the day in Round 3 when the horn blew following his tee shot at the par-4 13th and he’ll have a wedge into the pin to start his Sunday. If he can take advantage and stick one tight for birdie, Smalley would be right back in the hunt heading into some scoring holes to close out his morning. I like this number to see him be a factor throughout the day and I’m sticking by the Sedgefield member to possibly be the guy best suited to handle the start and stop that this tournament has produced.

Taylor Moore Top 10 +360 (FanDuel)

It’s rare to see so many books giving us finish position odds mid-round and I think there are some spots to take advantage. Taylor Moore is one for me as he was the last one off my buy list Friday night, but slides in now as I think he may be close to finding the stroke that had him gaining 1.90 strokes on the greens in Round 1.

Moore has been one of the best players in the field tee to green this week and continued that with some sharp ball striking on Saturday. He hasn’t paired it with a putter that could even sniff field average over the past two days, but he’s managed to play 3-under through 14 holes in the third round and heads to a stretch of the easier holes on the course. He’s three shots back of the top 10 as things stand right now, but if his ball striking continues and he finds his putting stroke, that kind of finish is certainly in play with 22 holes to play.
