What the 3M Open lacks in star-power it makes up for in opportunity. With only four top-20 players in the field, there’s room for plenty of under-the-radar players to sneak up the leaderboard and cash a top-20 prop.
Here are the players we’re targeting with our favorite prop bets at TPC Twin Cities:
Harris English Top-20 Finish (+175)
I’ll let Collin speak to Kristoffer Ventura below, which I also love this week. And since Josh is taking Lucas Glover top-20, then I’ll go with the other player I’ve been linking him with on a weekly basis, as English and Glover have been two of the steadiest players in the game lately.
English has finished top-20 in five of his last six starts, all of which came against stronger fields than the one we’ll see this week. The way the PGA TOUR is set up, it rewards players with high highs and low lows more than those who consistently show up, but that doesn’t mean we can’t reward ourselves by banking on these types of guys.
Lucas Glover Top-20 Finish (+125)
Glover has made the cut in all five events since the restart and has been hovering around the top-20 in most outings.
With the field strength taking a dip this week, he should be able to take advantage on a course where he finished seventh last year.
Doc Redman Top-40 Finish (+100)
Doc missed the cut for the first time since the layoff last week at the Memorial, shooting a 76 on both Thursday and Friday. Looking at his data, though, he actually hit 72.2% of his greens, which was one of the strongest marks in the field. The problem was that he put up one of the worst putting performances you’ll see. Man, were those Muirfield greens impossible.
Prior to that outing, though, he had been in incredible form. The youngster isn’t Bryson-level long off the tee, but he’s long enough and importantly is quite consistent with that club. The dude is really talented and fits this course well. I think we’ll see a nice bounceback campaign from and don’t mind paying even money for a top-40 finish.
Kristoffer Ventura Top-20 Finish (+400)
The Oklahoma State product has a couple of Korn Ferry Tour victories under his belt and has impressed in a few PGA TOUR events, including the Rocket Mortgage Classic where he finished T21.
Ventura’s average distance on the 2019 Korn Ferry Tour was 313 yards, so he has enough stick to hang around at TPC Twin Cities.
Better yet, he has the best adjusted score on recent Par 5’s and long-term Par 4’s than anyone in this field, per FantasyLabs.
