Scottie Scheffler (+800)
I know what you’re thinking. Why would I “waste” one of the game’s best players at a smaller event such as this? Well, it helps to understand that first-place money this week pays more than it did for last week’s Masters. As the payouts have changed on the PGA Tour, so, too, should our collective OAD strategies.
My guess is that most of your fellow poolsters are “saving” Scheffler for a bigger tourney, so this represents an opportunity to get a big-time talent as a contrarian play with low ownership percentage.
Justin Thomas (+2800)
Look, I hated everything about the way JT finished his second round last week at Augusta National. He’s mad, he’s frustrated, and honestly, he’s a little combustible right now.
All of that said, he totally resembles his buddy Jordan Spieth last year, who MC’d at the Masters and won at Harbour Town. At this number, he’s worth an outright sprinkle, as well.
Davis Riley (+18000)
Proceed with caution, guys. When last we saw Riley, he was busy shooting a million in the first round of the Valero Texas Open before withdrawing the next day. Before that, though, he’d finished in the top 30 in four of his last five starts. Perhaps the biggest attraction here is his price in the betting markets and his low ownership in OAD.
Two weeks ago, in an admittedly inferior field to this one, Riley was right around 30-1 pre-tournament. Finding him at a price six times bigger should feel like we just grabbed a treasure out of the bargain bin.
