American Express Round 4 Odds & Picks: There’s Still Room on the Scottie Scheffler Bandwagon

Those of you who followed The Action Network during the heart of the NFL season – even just on social media – undoubtedly recall our popular #FadeRovell promotion, when bettors could wager against Darren Rovell and win money while he’d suffer a back waxing or Andy Roddick firing tennis balls at him from close range.

Well, after three rounds of The American Express, you have a chance to — in a way — #FadeSobel. (Without the hilarious aftereffects, of course.)

With 18 holes remaining in the California desert, Scottie Scheffler and Andrew Landry share of a four-stroke lead over Rickie Fowler. While I wouldn’t call anything short of the Henrik Stenson-Phil Mickelson duel at Royal Troon in 2016 a two-horse race, it would be at least a little surprising if both players coughed up a four-shot advantage.

So, where does the #FadeSobel part of this come into play? Glad you asked.

My pre-tournament pick to win this event was none other than Scheffler. I had a good feeling about the kid and, so far, it’s been a fun ride. If you were with me from the start, let’s all watch this thing with fingers crossed on Sunday. If you weren’t, there’s still time – and still room on the bandwagon — as Scheffler remains “only” +110 to win the title at FanDuel.

Of course, should you choose to fade my guy — and yes, I’ll consider all hedging a fade in this instance — you’re likely seeing value in the other co-leader. If that’s the case, I won’t talk you off backing Landry at +200, but I will offer this warning: He’s fresh off missed cuts in each of his last five starts. It’s very rare for a player to go from 0-to-trophy, skipping the whole part about building momentum and confidence.

While I won’t be buying any more shares of Scheffler, I’m already pot-committed. Come jump on the bandwagon — or keep fading at your own risk.

Let’s get to my five favorite plays for the final round, as groups will play in threesomes for the second straight Sunday.
